Turns out the Garmin Dakota 20 WAS set to Pedestrian Mode.

On switching it to Car/Motorcycle or Bicycle, so far it looks like it DOES respect one-way streets.

So it was my fault. False alarm everyone.

Usually it is set to Bicycle; I don't remember switching it to Pedestrian.

Thanks for the clue Beddhist.

Hello,

We've downloaded the OSM-maps of New Zealand (by selecting New Zealand of manual selection), we've installed the maps on the pc. When we zoom in in mapsource, we can only see a small part of New Zealand. There seems to be a vertical line that hides/covers the rest of the islands. Is this a known problem? We've never had this problem before with other countries.

Kinds regards
Wim

This problem has been around for some time.  The maps work fine in my Garmin GPSMap 76CSx when I transfer them, just a bit annoying when trying to look at the North Island of New Zealand.  I use NZ Open GPS Project maps at http://www.nzopengps.org/  There is some forum entries about this problem on page 40-41.

We might see you in NZ as we will be cycling in the South Island February 15 to March 8th on a Tandem with a BOB Action Packer trailer.  Our journal is on www.crazyguyyonabike.com

Cheers,

Sorry if the answer is obvious, but it is known that the styling for the current map is messed up?

Messed-up in what way? Screenshot perhaps?

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

Thanks! I was worried that there was a really serious bug in the maps, but it's 'only' the stylesheet that's different (but I understand you don't like it).

I think this can be traced back to commit #2109 on the default stylesheet of Mkgmap. Perhaps something broke, so I'll email the Mkgmap dev list about that.

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

You can add this line
base-style=landuse

to the info file in the default style:
http://www.mkgmap.org.uk/svn/wsvn/mkgma … fault/info

and maybe put some comment marks before the lines that you don't want to render:
http://www.mkgmap.org.uk/svn/wsvn/mkgma … e/polygons

(0x4e clutters the map a lot without typ file)

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

Marko (the maintainer of the stylesheets in Mkgmap) has fixed the problem in SVN (commit #2204)

It will take a few days (probably somewhere next week) until you'll see this change in the maps.

Thanks Ligfietser!

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

Lambertus,
How about generating the sea? Because I dont have found any issues in my Europe map I think it is worth a try with the mkgmap option --generate-sea=multipolygon,extend-sea-sectors,close-gaps=6000

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

Hi all,

I am trying to use maps generated by the site, but i it does not render either in Mapsource or Basecamp. I have a white rectangle instead. Anyone would have a clue what I may be doing wrong? (using a PC version a .exe generated OSM for garmin)

I can't check right now, but I'm pretty sure I'm using something like this already... See the flooding problems in Sydney a few pages back.

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

@Kickaha try ctrl-G (maybe a few times) because it could be that the background map is selected. Otherwise, zooming in on the map will help.

@Lambertus, must be a flooded river or lake down there (http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/relation/1252425 natural=water), there is absolutely no sea in your maps around here

Does ctrl-G work in Basecamp as well?

Sydney Harbour has been a problem area before, as it's quite complex.

But I'll check the scripts for this weekends' update .

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

Ctrl-G is working in Basecamp as well and is one of the FAQs why the map is not visible.
Another one is zooming in on the right place, ctrl - is the trick here.
And the last trick is that you need to select the right map product, not everyone knows this ;-)

Maybe make a Sticky topic of this?

About Sydney Harbour, I just downloaded a tile and it is rendered as natural=water and therefore blue.
The oceans are white and not rendered.

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

What is the update frequency?

I ask because during the last couple of years I have used my Garmin to collect tracks for an area of Turkey where maps are very bad. The one I can buy for the unit contains little less than the main coast road. So I have been looking for an alternative way to get my experiences back on the unit. Then (very) late january I discovered how easy it is to take tracks to open street maps, Potlatch, correct some details, add some facilities and tourist attractions and after a few days pull everything to my unit via garmin.openstreetmaps.nl Wauv, great. A BIG hooray.

Now, on tuesday I just fled the north european winter, sitting in Turkey right now, and simply cannot wait to get on the road to verify and improve even more on what I participated with.

Last map set is from 30. january, when should I expect the next?

Usually every week, but sometimes things break and the update fails, like the last time. Next update is scheduled for this weekend.

Just checked and started an update using the latest Mkgmap and style file (with modifications to the line file). The sea was indeed missing (I must have been mistaken with a previous test run), but it's now added...

I'll try to upload the map next monday (if all goes as planned).

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

Hi.
i am having an issue combining some maps from lambertus together using mkgmap.

this is how i do:
mkgmap (version 2205)
alias mkgmap='java -Xmx675m -enableassertions -jar /home/user/path/mkgmap-r2205/mkgmap.jar --draw-priority=10000 --transparent'
download denmark and czeck republic from http://garmin.openstreetmap.nl/

czheck is ok, denmark seems not to be ok.

Then i run:
mkgmap --gmapsupp gmapsupp_osm_cz.img gmapsupp_osm_dk.img

directly after the czeck map is processed, mkgmap stops and does not continue with the danish map.
there is no error output. this issue happens with other countries as well, but czeck is actually working, whereas denmark is not.

do you know what may cause the problem?
are there any options i can enable, either to make it work or to get an exit code or a trace or something?

thank you.

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

The gmapsupp (from Denmark and Czheck Republic) is an container filled with Garmin images. It has the same filename extention (img) but is not the same as the Garmin images (tiles as I call them). A gmapsupp is more like a zip file containing the images. Mkgmap cannot handle these containers because it needs to work with separate images.

So you need to download the _tiles.zip instead of the _gmapsupp.zip.

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

thanks! it does look to work.
out of curiosity, why does some of the countries work when combining gmapsupp.img files where as others does not?

and a last question, if i just use mkgmap (as above) should i include the files *.mdx, *tdb and *_mdr*.img?

Don't know, really.

No. These files are not input for Mkgmap but are produced by Mkgmap if you pass the required parameters.

Below is my command co merge the images into a gmapsupp:

java -Xmx2048M -jar mkgmap.jar  
--index 
--overview-mapname=63240000 
--series-name='OSM World Routable ($version)' 
--latin1 
--description='OSM World Routable' 
--product-id=3 
--family-name='OSM World Routable' 
--family-id=2000 
--tdbfile 
--nsis 
--gmapsupp 
*324*.img 
$typMkgmap

$version = a string containing a data, e.g. "10-02-2012"
$typMkgmap = a path to a TYP file (when given)

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

On the Dutch forum I just published a small dos batch script that can combine Lambertus gmapsupp's into one single mapset for Mapsource or Basecamp:
http://mijndev.openstreetmap.nl/~ligfie … _Combi.zip

The readme.txt file is written in Dutch but since you understand some of the basics of mkgmap its not too hard to understand how this works.

For Lambertus Maps you only need to change the typ file in the mkgmap.bat file (set typfile= (empty for none, or mapnik.txt) because the default is for my OFM maps). You can also change the FID (default is 20122) and mapset name to your choice (default is OSM_combi). You can also add gmapsupp to the resources\mkgmap.args file to make one gmapsupp file of the whole combined mapset  (please note that the last line in this file must be an empty line!).

In the Input folder you put the different gmapsupp's that you want to combine. Gmt.exe will unpack these and put the single img's in the Map folder.
You can also put the single tiles in the Map folder but dont include the index files there. After the gmt process mkgmap.jar will create the index files (and a gmapsupp if specified).

Installation of the mapset in the Map folder can be done either by running/compiling the nsi file (with nsis) or Mapsettoolkit or Javawa's Mapconverter.

This method can also be used for including contour lines on Lambertus maps, but in Mapsource the contours are not always visible, in Basecamp the rendering is better.
Also other layers are possible, like hiking or cycling route layers, which can be downloaded from other osm sources (Note: both typ files must be compatible!)

Have fun!
