Last time I checked, groudtruth uses the cgpsmapper to compile garmin
maps.  The free cgpsmapper has a lot of limitations (i.e. limited
routing), unless you but the pro version.  However, I used groundtruth
to generate contour maps based on SRTM.  I intend to provide free
download soon.  If anyone wants them for testing, let me know.  My
unit crashed when I loaded the whole country's 10m elevation contour!
