Good Morning!
Does anyone know the correct format to download the map on the site
https://download.bbbike.org/osm/
and run on garmin edge 520?

Everything in that list with "Garmin" They only differ in style. OSM is the basic Garmin style (very ugly), or you can choose cycle map, leisure (freizeitkarte), OpenFietsMap, OpenSeaMap, OpenTopoMap, and BBBike.

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

Hello Forum!

First, let me thank of all the work contributed to Openfietsmap!

I am trying to do roadbike-routing with Garmin Basecamp and OFM (Alps), but it seems that cobblestone roads are unpaved and excluded from routing. (My activity is "car" with "avoid unpaved roads")

Is this a bug, intended or am I overlooking something?

Thanks!

Yes that is intended behaviour, unfortunately Garmin has only two options, avoid it "on" or "off" not something in between.
Same could be said about gravel tracks with a smooth rideable surface. Those will be avoided too, unfortunately. Until it has rained heavily, then you will be happy that the OFM avoids them. But I agree routing is far from perfect. You only can try bicycle as activity instead of cars, it will choose more unpaved possibilities.

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

Thanks for the clarification.

I totally disagree that routing is far from perfect, I do get very good results for my taste.
I totally agree, that every bike-rider has different preferences regarding surface and routing.

I tried to build the map on my own and tweak the style a bit but I failed*. Is the "Openfietsmap full" style in the github repo the one that is used for the maps to download? Which typ is used?

It was the first time I fired up mkgmap, so there are plenty of things I might habe down wrong. Just wanted to be sure I am using the correct input for my expected

* the car profile of the created map behaved like for real cars. Either it used a default style or I was passing the wrong style to mkgmap

What options did you use for mkgmap?

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

--style-file pointed to the "Openfietsmap full" folder in styles (seemed to work, checked with "--list-styles"), the first options file was "mkgmap.args" in styles/Openfietsmap full, the second one created by splitter.

didn't specify a typ.

mkgmap worked fine, except some warnings about elevation data which I ignored for the beginning.

I also tried the "bike-map" option from mkgmap but the result was the same.

Should one change map identifier/version/etc to avoid issues with Basecamp Map Cache?

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

What I wanted to see was the order of options. Some users specify the --style-file option after the templates.args from splitter, and that means that mkgmap uses the default style for the files.

Thanks for the hit, I'll check when I'm back from work.

But the bash history in my brain says I have been caught by that and it would explain the output.

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

Styles are here: https://github.com/ligfietser/mkgmap-st … map%20full

Args file is here: https://github.com/ligfietser/mkgmap-st … kgmap.args

You need to specify a typ file otherwise the whole map is screwed up. Use this type file (is the same for both full and light version): https://github.com/ligfietser/mkgmap-st … /20011.txt

Car routing is not supported at all so I guess something went wrong in your compilation.

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

Thanks for helping me to get started! Indeed it was the fault of passing the --style-file option after templates.args
