Looking for a road map - preferably one I can download to a Garmin, of the shortest route to all 48 contiguous states.

Are you looking for the shortest route or the fastest route?
Are you looking to hit any cities specifically?  Perhaps hit each state capitol?
Is this a homework assignment and therefore a violation of the TOS?  (Have to ask because it sounds like one.)

Just one town in each state.

Here is the route, you have to figure the key points and program them in.  An easy way to do it may be with Google Earth and then export the route to your GPS.  I believe there are several tools available on the web to get a google KMZ file into Garmin GPS units.

Here's a link to get to the Capitols of each state

I've seen that. Yes it does hit all the states but it leaves you at one end or another of the country. Perhaps I should have been a bit precise in the question. I want to start and finish at the same location with would indicate some sort of a circular route.

I was hoping somebody had already done the work. I can sit with Google Maps for hours trying to figure out the shortest route. Has to be some sort of an algorithm/program someone has created; I start here, I want to finish here and include all 48 states.

Although this is one I just made - something I didn't want to do. I can tweak it as I get closer to the trip.
