No gmapsupp.zip generated

I created Routable Bicycle (Openfietsmap Lite) map for specific region. Got confirmation email that

The server has generated four different configurations of your map:
* _windows.exe = Installer for Garmin BaseCamp/MapSource (Windows).
* _macosx.zip = Installer for Garmin BaseCamp/RoadTrip (Mac OSX)
* _gmapsupp.zip = Combined image for direct manual placement on the GPS device (gmapsupp.img)
* _tiles.zip = A zip file containing the tiles in the request, especially useful for Linux users (e.g. QLandkarte)


However when i access the link only openfietsmap_lite_tiles.zip created. Unzipping it generates bunch of img files.

Why gmapsupp.zip was not created? It was created in the past.

Thanks a lot

An update:

I used mkgmap and created gmapsupp.img which works fine on my Fenix 6X Saphire.
I used command java -jar ../mkgmap-r4470/mkgmap.jar --gmapsupp *.img

Re: No gmapsupp.zip generated

For the limited Fenix device this is probably all that is needed. For other devices which allow address or POI search you should add option
--index and the TYP file that comes with the zip file. Didn't try it but this should work:

java -jar ../mkgmap-r4470/mkgmap.jar --index --gmapsupp *.img *.typ

Re: No gmapsupp.zip generated

Wanted to generate a map for The Netherlands. So - no specific tiles.
It generated

- metadata/   
- b4ea772202e77676c104b9ec77dbeba7/
- osm_generic_new_tiles.zip

Normally there would be a gmapsupp.zip as well, but missing now.
The osm_generic_new_tiles.zip  consists of 204 files, which I can't use.

If you have mkgmap installed and unzipped osm_generic_new_tiles.zip the command shown in comment #2 should work.
(replace 4470 with the downloaded version)
See http://www.mkgmap.org.uk/download/mkgmap.html

Re: No gmapsupp.zip generated

is there a way the gmapsupp.zip file is coming back?
I would like to update my GPS.

Re: No gmapsupp.zip generated

Try other map providers, e.g. https://download.bbbike.org/
Lambertus' service is nice when it works but very unstable since years and Lambertus is no longer active in the community. In my eyes it would be better if his page would be closed it's a one-man-show.
