Hello, I'm fresh new user, just getting my ideas about this great project.I downloaded maps of region as OSM but my garmin device needsto have gmapsupp.img.Am I suppose to convert OSM or download something else ?If you have patience please guide me thru or send me a link,there are loads of info I'm a bit comfused where to startThanks a lot !
As I said, I was able to follow the instructions and download a map to my Vista HCx GPS, by means of copying the gmapsupp.img file.The created map was OK for my use, however I found that when following a track at night, sometimes the street outlines were so faint that it was difficult to distinguish the specific streets at intersections, which made navigation tricky,Also, the process for selecting a map region was limited, and also there is a limit as to the size of the map image you are allowed to create. So for longer rides (like a 1200k) I think it would not be viable for me as I can only download a single image to my particular GPS.Bottom Line: I am still looking for a viable alternative.
OSM developers communicate over the Internet through various communication channels. In 2013 they implemented the new Humanitarian Map Style, a map more adapted to humanitarian actions. This map, hosted by OpenStreetMap of France, is integrated into various online map tools.
09/11/09: añadidos los índices necesarios para poder hacer búsquedas por dirección. Funciona en MapSource, pero para que funcione en los aparatos hay que enviar los mapas usando MapSource, no vale copiar el archivo gmapsupp.img directamente. 2b1af7f3a8
