at the moment the creation of OSM based maps for Magellan units is a quite complicated, manual process.
Magellan users will find the maps on the http://www.maps4me.net website for download. We are working on automation and hope to update the maps more frequently.
Will any of these also work on the Magellan Color model?
It is all in the search!
The old *.img format is not supported. (Sportrack / Meridian )
Most maps are in the *.imi format.
Supported GPS Units are:
- eXplorist 500, 600, XL - but expect performance issues due to size and DEM
- Triton 400, 500, 1500, 2000 (small maps will work on 200 and 300 if they fit in memory (<20MB))
- eXplorist 310, 510, 610, 710

I think OSM is best for the Magellan instead of other free maps. I like the OSM and its quite useful.
You cant use Geonames datas? It free
You might be interested, that Magellan offers Sockey a license to their commercial Map SDK (or at least something that can read OSM without external tools etc.)

There is a good soft for creating raster maps from online maps (osm mapnik, bing satellite image an other) for Magellan and some other navi soft.
It is a Mobile Atlas Creator (MOBAC)
