Yes thanks I knew about that. I want something specific that only this site provides :-)

Create your own map instead?  See https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/OSM … m_OSM_data and for a simple worked example, https://www.openstreetmap.org/user/Some … iary/38613 .

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

I don't think that there is another service which allows me to create a single map with disjoint tiles is there?

It would be helpful if the "Server Status:" area on the web page was updated with an ETA...

Giving an ETA for an unpredictable event is like prophesying the future. You clearly are using your GPS device way too much tongue lol

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

Well I have just retired from a career of running IT projects including data centre relocations and similar. I do believe that, even if the event that led to the outage was unscheduled, four days since then should have allowed some estimate of when the issue will be rectified.The "E" in ETA is Estimated, and I think we could all accept that it is not guaranteed to be 100% accurate but that's not the point.

We do "prophesy the future" fairly regularly. It helps us decide whether to pack a warm jacket or a raincoat. It isn't always perfect but it is better than nothing.

Last, the estimate was already given above, I was just asking for it to be added at the appropriate place on the web page so that others do not have to go digging into the forum to find out!

I've certainly done that manually (without using any external site, just using OSM data)...

I'm presuming, though, that you got paid for the data centre relocations, unlike the volunteer running garmin.openstreetmap.nl. smile

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

Being paid does not make you more clever or insightful.

I imagine that the volunteers have a strong desire to offer good service, just like good professionals do. I know for the things that I do as a volunteer I try to bring the same service-centric view to the table.

One advantage of being paid though is that you get lots of practice - in my case hundreds of projects over my working life. Things that I learned the hard way might be of benefit to volunteers who (and I don't know their background) may not have the same level of experience in IT project management and IT service management. So if they want to act on my advice then that's great. If they don't, that's great too!

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

Hello,

I downloaded the country "Georgia" for my Garmin DriveSmart 50, then put the file "gmapsupp.img" under ".System/map" of the navigation device.

It get's recognized by the navigation, the map is graphically there, but the city/street search doesn't work.

For example it finds "Kutaissi" but it doesn't find the capital "Tiflis", nor "Tblisi"! - Do I have to put in the names in Georgian?! - When I swipe to Georgia and zoom in the graphical map, I can select "Tiflis" and then I can also select it by tapping.

Do you know what's wrong here and how to fix it?

Kind regrads,

Günther

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

If it's broken I'd suggest downloading maps from somewhere else, such as those suggested at
https://forum.openstreetmap.org/viewtop … 33#p746933 .

by default all generated Garmin maps from OpenStreetMap data will use
the code page Unicode (UTF-8). However, some older devices don't
support Unicode and some new devices have a broken DRM firmware ("can
not unlock map"). In this special case please use the latin1 style.

e.g.:
https://extract.bbbike.org/?format=garm … latin1.zip

I've tried multiple formats from BBBike and haven't had any success yet but I'll have another stab.

Is there a definitive answer to what the file should be called? I've seen both gmapbmap and gmapsupp in various instructions online. I actually have both on my device (edge 520).

gmapbmap.img is the Garmin base map containing only major roads and large cities. You should not delete this map (at least, if you have enough space on the device). gmapsupp.img is usually the name of the OpenStreetMap based map.

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

Hello everyone!!! I tried to download new version of garmin map from http://garmin.openstreetmap.nl/. But in section "Request your map or download it directly" there is only info:"make a selection first" and no possibility of downloading map. Why is that?
