@Derfder do you perhaps mean UN-inhabited then?

Er, very easily - many of those islands are common tourist destinations. Could you be more specific? At present your question covers many islands and could be considered too broad. Are you looking for a flight OR boat?

Welcome to Travel.SE. Could you edit your title/question as per the faq please? They're currently two subtly different questions - eg the title could be answered with "OSM is free, Garmin isn't". In terms of your main question - are you talking about software features (interface, menu etc), or map features (topographical, distances, routing) or what?

Of course, once specified as above, please do flag to reopen, as hopefully we can get an answer.

Different airlines have specials at different times for different routes. You're going to have to be more specific for this to be answered, sorry. Closing (temporarily) until we know what routes you're flying / who you hope to fly with. As Dirty said, WizzAir can be 6 months out, while HarbourAir in Canada releases their cheapest seats 2-3 days out to fill their planes (if available).
