Ibycus maps are available online and can be processed into .img files, which then can be converted to .map files using GPSMapEdit, and then downloaded to a smartphone using TBmapper.

Ibycus maps are excellent quality and probably better than Garmin maps. They include both street and topographical data in the same files, but do lack much of the massive collection of POI's in Garmin maps.

I crop smaller areas for use in the BB8330, and zoom in to the scale with the most data before sending to TB. In the case of Vancouver, the first level with all data (street names) is so large you have to store separate maps for the North Shore, Richmond, Vancouver city, Burnaby etc. You can't process the whole area at once at that detail level.
