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

Dear Lambertus,
thank you very much for this project. Currently I'm on a trip through Asia and after one year on the road, I would have one request, which I think would improve the maps a bit:
For whatever reason, the powerlines are shown. I have no idea why this data is included, for navigation purposes I think it is pretty useless or even worse irritating. But it would be amazing, if you could replace them with the railway data. Sometimes this helps to find a place by browsing a map or explain, why it will not be possible to take a shortcut somewhere (or why a road seem to be placed totally unlogical). This data is missing, so it would be great if this could get switched.
Greetings,
MArtin

Hi Martin,
I would recommend the generic new style maps, where the powerlines are removed. The railway network should be visible, if that is not the case, it is not in the osm data.

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

Hi. I'm probably being really dumb, but I'm never getting the field in which to enter my email address in the "Request your map or download it directly" area after I've selected the tiles I'm interested in. Have tried on Chrome and IE. Is there a problem with the web page, or am I missing something?

How big is your selection of tiles, if it is >4 Gb then you get a message "Selected map is too large!" and the e-mail address field will not be available.

The field is only shown when you activate manual tile selection and have at least one tile selected.
