Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Does the Generic or "Lite" version (routable bicycle) map offer more for hikers (i.e. routes, trails, etc.)? What are the advantages of one over the other?

I'm currently using the Generic OSM in a Garmin GPSMAP 62sc and it at least gets me to the trailhead. If I load the OFM will that overwrite the OSM or what?

Thanks - great service, BTW!

You appear to be talking about a particular OSM-for-Garmin download site, of which there are many. Perhaps you could let us know which one?

Open Street Map . . . this website in particular (beyond this I'm not sure):
