Screenshots

This KMZ map is set to Draw Order 32 so it will show 'beneath' your primary map on your Garmin KMZ-compatible GPS. 

Note that due to the wide coverage area of this map, it is actually 4 tiles. Keep that in mind when placing this on your Garmin GPSr - even though this is one KMZ, the number of tiles is limited to 100 across all the KMZ files loaded on your GPS (or 500 tiles if you have a Garmin Montana).

The images below are all from a Garmin GPSMAP 78sc. The image on the left is with no other maps displayed. The image on the right has the Garmin 24K NE series TOPO maps displayed.
