Yes, apparently something has changed for the new devices.

I always have used OSM based maps on my Garmin devices, so I haven't
got a clue. I don't know anyone with City Navigator maps either, so
for my it is hard to test.

But from what I understand from Minko, this behavior also occurs in
Basecamp (*), so maybe others can test this without the need to own a
new device. On the other hand, Basecamp is probably aware of the
difference and handles the maps accordingly. So IF the old maps work
in Basecamp, it doesn't automatically mean they work in the new eTrex.
