I want to use my nuvi 265wt for geocaching - I know that I can buy Topo maps however these quickly get expensive.

Has anyone found good solutions for geocaching?

You can download a free set of contour maps from a walking site. Unfortunately I have lost the URL as I now have TOPO but I am sure with a little bit of googling you should be able to find it Smile

I have not found good trail maps, however I do a lot of geocaching with the nuvi 350 with just the city navigator map. There is a GSAK macro by pilotsnipes and another by jjred which process the pocket query and uses the POI Loader to place cache descriptions, hints, alerts, logs onto the Nuvi.

If you are in Australia, there are 2 free topo maps:

1. Contour Australia 5m (Windows)
2. Contour Australia 5m (Mac)
3. Shonkymaps 50m

Shonkymaps provides a basemap and transparent map while Contour Australia is a transparent map. Contour Australia should work well on your Nuvi with City Navigator.

GSAK is good to have as suggested by a previous poster.

If you are really keen, I would suggest getting a Garmin Oregon or Dakota using the topo maps mentioned above with Open Street Maps free maps:
I have tested Oregon 300 and 550 with these free maps.
