I have a Montana also. Great bit of kit. If you search through wikiloc you'll indeed find some great trails (I have some on there too but not as many as I like to share as my GPS USB got zapped)
Anyhooo..... I use open street maps and find it works just fine. If say, when off road and you enter in the name of two villages it will route to them via piste.
A tip,if one finds oneself in the vast desert trails used by locals,is if you actually zoom out on your GPS rather than try to follow one trail rigidly. When you zoom out a few taps you'll see that you're still heading to where you should be going but now you can look ahead whilst riding and pick your own trails as you see them.
This allows you to choose which of the many parallel trails to ride on.
As an aside,in these types of regions,where there can be say an 8km wide stretch of land,that you can ride on for half an hour and all with trails paralleling, culminating into a one vehicle wide trail, if you look well to the horizon, sometimes you'll normally see a wall of mountains to your left or right way into the distance and where they dip is a ready reckoner as to where you'll end up going.
I'm certain you'll find what you need on wikiloc and with a garmin there's a specific icon for garmin you'll click allowing your GPS to suck each trail in.
I don't think you're being lazy in asking a question whatsoever. It is easier to ask than to walk to a library or book shop in the rain and faster than ordering same on line.
I hope you enjoy your ride out and if you have any other questions,and bearing in mind the point of having forums is to share and help, by all means just ask.
If nice people don't want to answer what they normally do is just not answer,rather than make the effort and take the time to tell you you're lazy.
The first thing I'm sure you'll want to read on these forums, with only 56 posts, is that it's a good place to hang out and to spread the word with other like minded riders within our discipline.
Don't forget these same people also ask questions on forums that they too could've searched for.....
Thank you for the kind offer of trails.... Perhaps you could upload same to wikiloc and then post a link? This would save you emailing them repeatedly?
Enjoy your time on the forums and here is a link for OSM for Maroc
