There is an experimental driver for Garmin IMG maps.

It's located here : http://libgarmin.sourceforge.net/ You will need the 'subversion' (svn) tool to install this driver.

You can search a map for your area there : http://garminmapsearch.com/

Please give us feedback / bug report about this driver!

Prerequisites

First, get libgarmin from svn, and install it, as usual :

svn co http://libgarmin.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/libgarmin/libgarmin/dev libgarmin
cd libgarmin
./autosh.sh && ./configure
make

And, as root :

make install

How to build the driver

Be sure to update navit to latest cvs

reconfigure and build navit.

cd ../..
./autogen.sh && ./configure && make

Configure your map source

Now add your first garmin map to navit.xml

       <mapset enabled="yes">
               <map type="garmin" enabled="yes" data="/path/to/gmapsupp.img"/>
       </mapset>

Where you can give it either dskimg file (gmapsupp.img) or a .tdb file
