I work for the United Nations and will be based in Burkina Faso for
the next year. I wonder if it is possible to upload the Google Maps
data on a GPS device like the Garmin Dakota. According to the
following post, the new generation of Garmin models seem to be able to
display KML files.
Does anyone have any practical experience with this? If it works, I am
sure that many people would be interested in using a Google Maps
powered Garmin as a navigation tool. It could be used by thousands of
humanitarian and development workers in Africa.
