Re: Worldwide routable Garmin maps: http://garmin.openstreetmap.nl

@ligfietser: Works great! Looks great!

I modifed my call to mkgmap to include all the typ files from the variety of states I downloaded. I have no idea if that was the Right Thing, but it seems to have worked: mkgmap --gmapsupp *.img *.typ

Is this the right forum to make suggested additions to the TYP file? (e.g. leisure=playground, aeroway=*.)

Thanks again for the help.

Re: Worldwide routable Garmin maps: http://garmin.openstreetmap.nl

Yesterday a big change has been made in the website regarding how country maps are spread over the available servers. Previously all country maps were provided by one server but this generates too much traffic (up to 25 TB per month!). So now country maps are, like the custom maps, spread over a selection of the available servers.

As I said, this is a big change and while it seemes to work correctly there still may be some bugs. Please report if something is not working, you see something unusual or you get an error. Thanks!

Re: Worldwide routable Garmin maps: http://garmin.openstreetmap.nl

Thanks for regular updates. I am glad to see my updates are reflected with garmin maps.

Due to a problem with my computer I reinstalled OS (windows 7 starter) and Garmin Basecamp I also downloaded Sri Lanka maps via http://garmin.openstreetmap.nl/ I download and install both garmingeneric and garmin genericnewsyle but only OSMgenericroutable and Globalmap are appearing but not genericnew. I initially downloaded via http://sfs4.pleiades.uni-wuppertal.de/g … 716f0ee8a/ (from email I received). I downloaded but it didn't solve the problem. Appreciate if some one can look in to this. Thanks in advance.

Re: Worldwide routable Garmin maps: http://garmin.openstreetmap.nl

Umapathy, thanks for reporting, this doesnt look right. Do you see a map called OSM routable generic (new style) in your map items?
Lambertus, looks like the country name is not included anymore in the mapset? Also the data structure looks different.
Someone else reported to me as well that country id's are missing in the map names.

Re: Worldwide routable Garmin maps: http://garmin.openstreetmap.nl

Ligfietser,thanks for the promptly response. For testing purposes I did check with another laptop by installing 3 maps Generic Routable, Generic Routable new style and Routable Bicycle for Sri Lanka. Updated Openfitsmaps appears along with OSM Generic Routable but not Generic Routablenew. Though not a big deal, earlier I used to see the date with the map and the country in brackets now gone.

I use Garmin basecamp to make printed map (several A4/Legal and past together) do check in ground with Goverment Officers responsible for the village (Such as head of the village administration, Development officers). Then make necessary changes to the openstreetmap. I also put the same map to the my gps. I am in the process of doing this for particular selected villages in Vavuniya. Getting good updated will really help me. Google maps or here.net maps are not that useful at least here in vavuniya, northern Sri Lanka and unlike openstreetmap they don't have any easy way to print those maps.

Re: Worldwide routable Garmin maps: http://garmin.openstreetmap.nl

Try looking at your installed maps with Javawa. This will hopefully tell you what it wrong.

I suggest you decide on one map version to use (I suggest the new style). They all use the same OSM data anyway.

Re: Worldwide routable Garmin maps: http://garmin.openstreetmap.nl

Since Lambertus has made some changes, now all the country maps are having the same ID's.
Please be patient until he has restored his scripts.

Thanks for the reports and your patience, I've been away to a multi-day congress and only now see this. I'll try to fix this asap.

Re: Worldwide routable Garmin maps: http://garmin.openstreetmap.nl

The build scripts have slowly drifted apart between the country server and the custom map servers and unfortunately the fix is more complex than I thought. I will need more time to fix the country map generation on the non-country servers.

Re: Worldwide routable Garmin maps: http://garmin.openstreetmap.nl

Lambertus,
There are sites like driverpacks.net switched to bittorrent to download the files.  Earlier they used to do somewhat same like this site then they switched to bittorrent inorder to save the hosting charges. This has some advantages such as saving the bandwidth also dowloaders can also contribute back to the project by seeding the files that they downloaded.  May not be every one but some will do this for sure.
This may be a viable option for future. Then there is no need to spend the time to fix the servers hosted in different places.

Re: Worldwide routable Garmin maps: http://garmin.openstreetmap.nl

I think the constraints here are CPU and disk I/O, rather than bandwidth. Plus, all files change every two weeks.

Peter.

Re: Worldwide routable Garmin maps: http://garmin.openstreetmap.nl

With the current servers and user load there is no bottleneck in CPU, disk space or I/O. There was recently a question at the university whether the Garmin traffic is excessive which caused me to rush a change in the way the countries maps are generated. Unfortunately this included a bug which I cannot fix currently because somehow the (S)FTP server won't let me in these days and support hasn't replied to my questions yet sad

Regarding bittorrent:
I think Beddhist is correct in his assessment that the weekly update cycle reduces the chance that bittorrent can effectively reduce the traffic. For some individual cases like some of the oft-downloaded country maps (e.g. Germany) it might very well reduce traffic, but I'm skeptical it will help much. So, because of this reason and very restricted available hobby-time I currently don't plan to experiment with bittorrent as it adds just another thing to maintain plus the added complexity. The trade-off isn't there (yet) for me.

Re: Worldwide routable Garmin maps: http://garmin.openstreetmap.nl

I try with "Enable manual tile selection" with yemen and countries near oman and it works for all countries except Oman on my Garmin montana 610. that means I see all informations, all details when I look yemen on my gps but when I look Oman, I see only global worldwide map.

I just downloaded now Oman "osm_generic_macosx.zip    30M  Map installer for BaseCamp / Mac OSX platform." and install it on basecamp and It works very well

I think the problem is about : osm_generic_gmapsupp.zip  29M

Re: Worldwide routable Garmin maps: http://garmin.openstreetmap.nl

You have maybe several generic maps with the same tiles on your Montana. This can lead to such errors.
You can check this with Javawa Device Manager: http://www.javawa.nl/jdm_en.html

Re: Worldwide routable Garmin maps: http://garmin.openstreetmap.nl

The map I got from garmin.openstreetmap.nl (new style) looks very nice in day, but in night profile it still is mostly white.
Text appears with a black background (as expected), but the background in the rest of the map is still white (bad for night vision). What am I doing wrong?

Re: Worldwide routable Garmin maps: http://garmin.openstreetmap.nl

You are doing nothing wrong. The map is for day mode only. Please disable night mode and in darkness just adjust the brightness.

Peter.

Re: Worldwide routable Garmin maps: http://garmin.openstreetmap.nl

Thanks, I'll keep it in day mode.
Another question. There is a section on my map with a dune, but in my Garmin etrex Legend HCx, the dunes cover all in it, including towns, train tracks and roads.
I get the dunes in all details levels on the etrex. Is there a way to hide the dunes to make everything else visible?
