I plan to travel to the US this year and would like to take my own GPS with me, the problem I have is the map in my Garmin is really old (it's from 2009) and I'd like to have it up to date for my trip.
One important feature for my is the display of the speed limit on the device, I use my Garmin here with a homebrew (ie unofficial map) that does NOT show such information, so when I went to the US with my Nuvi 2 years ago I was pleasantly surprised to see the speed limit info on screen (i had removed the homebrew and left the original US map on the device). Not being familiar with the US laws this represented a huge help in not getting a speeding ticket.
Open Street Maps is open source and free to use, while last time I checked the update for my Nuvi 760 was about $80/year. If I use Open Street Maps on my Garmin can I expect to get the same features as with the official Garmin maps?
