OSM and other free maps for Magellan

Hi,

at the moment the creation of OSM based maps for Magellan units is a quite complicated, manual process.
Magellan users will find the maps on the http://www.maps4me.net website for download. We are working on automation and hope to update the maps more frequently.

Re: OSM and other free maps for Magellan

Will any of these also work on the Magellan Color model?

Re: OSM and other free maps for Magellan

The old *.img format is not supported. (Sportrack / Meridian )


Most maps are in the *.imi format.
Supported GPS Units are:

- eXplorist 500, 600, XL - but expect performance issues due to size and DEM
- Crossover
- Triton 400, 500, 1500, 2000 (small maps will work on 200 and 300 if they fit in memory (<20MB))
- eXplorist 310, 510, 610, 710

Re: OSM and other free maps for Magellan

I think OSM is best for the Magellan instead of other free maps. I like the OSM and its quite useful.

Re: OSM and other free maps for Magellan

You might be interested, that Magellan offers Sockey a license to their commercial Map SDK (or at least something that can read OSM without external tools etc.)

Re: OSM and other free maps for Magellan

There is a good soft for creating raster maps from online maps (osm mapnik, bing satellite image an other) for Magellan and some other navi soft.
It is a Mobile Atlas Creator (MOBAC)
