I believe all the Garmins come with what they call "base maps", which I assume 
are much less detailed than the topo maps. Can anyone tell me if these are usable?

The base maps are next to useless.

The GPS Australia forum has links to free topographic and street maps.

I've used the Contours Australia 5m maps on a Garmin GPSMap 60CSx, and found
them useful - but a higher resolution display would help.
