If you're heading for remote parts of the world, WorldMap has you covered. WorldMap provides basic worldwide maps for your Garmin device, including areas where no other detailed maps are available. These general maps display political boundaries, coastlines, cities and towns, major interstates and highways, lakes and rivers, and urban areas and railroads. WorldMap also includes U.S. Interstate exit information, including fuel and service stations, restaurants, hotels, campsites, hospitals, and banks. WorldMap is most useful for those parts of the world where no other detailed Garmin maps are available.
Garmin's WorldMap MapSource CD-ROM provides worldwide coverage with base map-level detail, including political boundaries, cities, towns, major motorways and/or interstates, and principal highways; lakes, major streams, and rivers; and urban areas and railroads. WorldMap displays excellent coastline detail that includes many offshore islands, as well as worldwide nautical navigation aids such as day beacons, radio beacons, RACONs, fog signals, lights, and buoys. Also shown are U.S. interstate exit information, such as service stations, gas stations, restaurants, hotels, campsites, hospitals, banks, and more. WorldMap includes management functions that allow you to transfer waypoints, routes, and tracks between your PC and nearly all Garmin GPS units (excluding the GPS100 family and panel mount aviation units) while viewing base map-level maps on your PC screen.
It is recommended for use with the GPS III Plus, NavTalk, GPS 12MAP, and GPSMAP 162/168. It is compatible with StreetPilot GPS, StreetPilot ColorMap, GPSMAP 295, and eMap, which require a blank 8 or 16 MB cartridge for loading map data.

Probably my favorite use of the maps is its built-in tie to Google Earth. Once you locate your places of interest using World Map on your computer, you can click on the "View in Google Earth" and instantly view your waypoints and routes in Google Earth with infinite detail. Vise versa, I often use Google Earth to locate detailed GPS coordinates and copy them into my WorldMap software for download to the GPS; this provides a workaround for the low detail and poor accuracy of maps. When you get home you can also upload your world-wide tracks and waypoints that you acquired on your trip and view them in Google Earth to know exactly where you were and where to post pictures, if you do that. This interactivity with Google Earth saves the day for what otherwise is a pretty limited level of map detail.
In the US, I do a lot of off-road exploring, mostly in the southwest deserts. Here I use Garmin's Topo USA 2008 Garmin Mapsource Topo US 2008. It has infinite detail, on and off-road, and the same wonderful Google-Earth connectivity.

I don't think Garmin makes this anymore. They're always changing things.
