Qatar Garmin GPS map.
Update 19th September 2009 - I was informed a while ago that newer versions of the Garmin MapSource program wouldn't start when the Qatar map was installed as described in my procedure. Follow this link for new installation instructions.
If you are searching for free Garmin maps have a look at MapCenter. They have hundreds of maps available for free download. Follow this link for MapSource installation instructions. For Qatar I found a really nice map that is very detailed with endless POI's. You can download the img file here. I tested the map in my GPSmap 60C and didnt encounter any problems.

26th February 2006 Ver. 9.02 now available for download.
Garmins City Navigator Middle East 2010 is available on the market. For navigation in Doha the Garmin Middle East map is very good, but off road tracks and points of interest outside Doha is not available on the map. To compensate for that, this Garmin map has been developed by Kim S. H. Andersen from Denmark. He lived in Qatar from 1999 to 2004, and put great effort into developing the map. Many of his colleges and friends has contributed with tracks and waypoints to increase the level of details. He offered me to take over the future development of the map.
