OpenStreetMap

A week on

Posted by GMHeyes on 4 March 2012 in English (English)

Done a bit more editing this week, certain aspects are getting a little bit easier, and thats a step in the right direction! Does anyone have a link to a step by step guide to putting certain areas of the map on my Garmin device? I know you can download the .img files already done but want to be able to do them myself, also I only need a small portion of the map as I use it mainly for hiking and fishing!

'OSM Map On Garmin' wiki page presents various options (I think most people use Mkgmap) , and also gives a step-by-step guide.

Thanks for the link but I have read that, mind boggling to the average computer user!

Managed to export a small area of the map and using mkgmap have made an image file and uploaded it to my unit and it works! Next step is to try the whole of the uk!!!
