Is there any type of microchip or downloads available for handheld gamins to come up on the GPS so you know exactly where wilderness boundaries are? Been to various states and its always a bit of a challenge because the little signs sometimes are quite a ways apart.

I have downloaded the Wilderness boundary overlays to google earth but not sure about to the Garmin. Seems like that would be a great idea. I use Google Earth and upload tracks from my Garmin after the fact so I can judge how close the boundary is to where we went.

I use the ONYX Hunt the Rockies chip in my garmin. It defines private, city, state, Forest, and BLM land by color. Not sure as I dont have wilderness near me, however, it's done great at keeping me out of Yellowstone National Park, and other "out of bounds" areas...
