We have a Garmin 760 which is overdue for a map update and plan to use NZ Open GPS Project to do so :) I believe it is a similar concept to the TomTom site that provides map updates compiled via user submissions.

The other alternative is to torrent download map packages for Garmin devices. This availability was the deciding factor in us buying a Garmin, over a TomTom which had no torrent downloads that I could find. The Open GPS source is probably a preferable option though, and legal [;)]

@rob,
I haven't got around to exploring the site but the "Downloads" link on the webpage that my post links to would be a good start I reckon. Don't know whether each update includes the previous info or if you need to access the Parent Directory as well. Each update seems to be 26mB and as the whole of Aussie is only 112mB I suspect each download is a total update package.

Happy hunting, and let us know how you get on :)
