Garmin BaseCamp (free software, link: http://www8.garmin.com/support/mappingsw.jsp) can load the batch file all at once to your Garmin unit.
I have been running into problems compiling maps in proprietary formats to get around the resolution limitations of 100 1024x1024 cells (depending on the resolution ~5km^2) When I figure it out you would be able to load one hi resolution custom map for lets say a hundred or so lakes all as one file.

Creating individual rectified custom maps for each lake is not an issue and I've been doing that for quite a while.

See the attached tutorial below, it does not use Base Camp to load the resulting .kmz files but it easily could, that's what I currently do to load these lake maps onto my garmin handhelds.

It may be of use to some folks.

Wow where did you find these? do you thing it would be possible to get one on Star lake and west blue lake? Star lake is a very small lake right beside west hawk lake in the whiteshell. If not I totally understand as its so small! thanks so much!
Here is a map of Star Lake, it will be in the next version of my google earth file whenever I get that complete.

Some maps of some Northern lakes would be great. Clearwater, Rocky, Reed etc. The more the better. Thx for what is available so far.

Is there another link for the fishing maps?

I must be a noob but I cant seem to get the map to load the file. It says the original file is HTML and I don't get an option to open that in the google maps app on my PC.
