Are there any maps available that would be useful for walking off-road in southern spain that I can use with my Garmin etrex vista HCX?

    @BenCrowell: I don't think this is a correct edit as it completely change the question. Instead the question should be appropriately tagged with the graphical region. – ppl Mar 16 '14 at 22:38
  • @ppl: I would add garmin tag to distinguish between specific types of GPS devices. – wypieprz May 7 '14 at 0:40
  • Do you have to use Garmin? If you have a phone with google maps you can use that internationally. GPS isn't using data and if you download the maps you can save it to your device and not worry about data at all. – Collatrl Aug 31 '17 at 17:30

I would consider using OSM as they are available for garmin devices.

To add to ppl's reply, Free maps for Garmin brand GPS devices

And Ibycus Topo

And GpsFileDepot.

And there's probably more that could be added.

As an extension to Openstreetmap, I recommend Opentopomap. It has the same trail data as Openstreetmap, but adds contour lines, which can be quite handy when hiking.

However, I recommend to never hike on a GPS alone. Bring a paper map from the Spanish IGN. You'll get more overview, and a GPS can break or run out of battery.
