Hi guys,

We have decided that we will be having a separate outdoor recreation
Garmin map for the hikers, mountaineers, mountain bikers, climbers,
scuba divers, etc. This map will have contour lines for selected
mountains as suggested. But unlike the main Garmin map, this will be
updated only once a month since outdoor-related map features aren't
edited/updated on the map as often as "regular" features like roads
and POIs. But for those who want the latest, we will try to provide
DIY tools so people can make their own custom Garmin maps. :-)
