    Shaded relief base maps for Garmin Oregon?

    I find the shaded relief maps the most visually appealing and intuitive. I have no actual experience using them on a Garmin device only in various iPhone apps. I could be talked out of this by someone who has more experience ...but assuming they will work fine on my Oregon 450, where is my best source these types of maps of the USA?

    See the image below from the TopoFusion site

    Those come on the Oregon 450t/550t at 1:100k scale and I am pretty sure Garmin's topo program includes them at 1:24k scale.

    That is one thing I have not seen become widespread as free maps. I suspect Garmin is keeping their format under wraps so their maps have something the free maps don't. I find contour lines perfectly intuitive so I don't care.
