I don't get the GPS craze that is taking the world by storm. If you are general driver, you know your way around your town and couple of neighboring ones. And you travel to a distant place or a city once or twice a year. Do you really need a €400+ GPS device in your car/bike/backpack? Couldn't you just borrow one when you really need it?

Don't get me wrong, I would like to have any gadget, why not a Nüvi to load my pictures, play mp3 and stuff. And I do occasionaly borrow GPS from time to time from various friend for sailing, driving or even biking.

But I'm not going to pay serious money and then pirate the maps in order to pay another €100 for maps that will be out of date in couple of years....

So where are free GPS maps? Do you know any cool resources?

Maps from http://www.openstreetmap.org/
can get rendered really nicely:

(they have some sort of distributed rendering cluster, called tiles@home)

You can download a free MAP file for Middle East, from EMULE PLUS. Simply search for a file named :Navigon Middle East Map 20040902.rar and this file only works with NAVIGON so u must get NAVIGON software, which is incidently available at EMULE PLUS! Choose your version and download it. Peer to peer networks rock.
