Filename extensions: *.IMG and *.ADM
Garmin Image (IMG) and UserData (ADM) Container File Format.
This file format is used to combine a set of files into a single file. It is similar to a file system on a disk, but it lacks hierarchy. The contained files (called subfiles) form a flat list - there are no subdirectories.
This file format is used for image files (IMG) with filename extension *.img and for user data files (ADM) with filename extension *.adm.
There are separate documents available here for the IMG and ADM subfiles.

Filename extensions: *.DEM, *.GMP, *.IDX, ...
Garmin IMG map file for use in outdoor GPS devices.
Uses the IMG/ADM container file format (documentation also available here) to combine all the subfiles into a single file.
This document describes the file format of the following subfile types:
--DEM Digital Elevation Model;
--GMP Subtile of a larger area;
--IDX ?;
--LBL Labels for map elements, city names, localities, etc.;
--MAR ? marine? (in bluechart 2 nautical charts);
--MD2 ?;
--MDR Binding individual map files together;
--MPS Similar to the TDB file in that it is a list of maps along with other information describing the set;
--NET Road network information (intersections, etc.);
--NOD Routing information;
--QSI ?;
--RGN Map elements such as polylines, polygons and points;
--S16 ?;
--SNR ?;
--SRT Lookup table for characters;
--TRE Map structure information that organizes the map elements into a data tree;
--TRF ?;
--TYP Custom rendering styles. How a map element will be rendered on the GPS which allows you to display things in a different way.

Filename extensions: *.PRX, *.RTE, *.TRK and *.WPT
Garmin ADM file for storage of user data on marine GPS devices.
Uses the IMG/ADM container file format (documentation also available here) to combine all the subfiles into a single file.
This document describes the file format of the following subfile types:
--PRX Proximity records;
--RTE Routes;
--TRK Tracks;

Filename extensions: *.LCM and *.AT5
Navico map format.
The AT5 map format is a Lowrance map format supported by a wide range of Lowrance GPS devices [..]. The AT5 format is able to combine vector layers, such as contour lines, with raster (image) layers (cited from here).
AT5-charts work with seachart-plotters from Lowrance, Simrad and B&G. It is also possible to use them with Insight Planner which is a tool for marine navigation (cited from here).
