OSM garmin

Posted by Kraanc on 22 June 2010 in Latvian (LatvieŇ°u)

Downloaded yesterday OSM for my Garmin from OSM download site.
when i open it in mapsource, the woodland is shown as brown stripes, and when i uppload the map to my Garmin eTrex Summit HC, woodland gets white/green-textured in very dumb way, so that in OSM drawen small wood fields loses the point. wondering why is that???

and other thing is that this device, Garmin eTrex Summit HC, has only 22mb built in memory and no extra card slot. so to get in it bigger or more detailed map i wonder if there is way to download OSM map without routing, i guess that option could save up some space?

You can't leave the routing info out of the maps because it's not in the maps. What you can do is delete unneeded tags like maxspeed or so. I don't know if there exists software to delete certain tags from an XML file or if you will have to write it yourself.

The Summit HC does not have routing capability, AFAIK the routing information is not transferred to the internal memory of the GPS. You don't say which OSM-derived Garmin map you are using: there are several available for most European countries.

The styling on the device will be determined by whether you have downloaded a .TYP file or not. I have no problem with Mapsource compatible maps on this GPS from any of the usual sources (All-in-One, Computerteddy, OpenMtbMap, Lambertus, or talkytoaster). Additionally I build my own, particularly transparent overlays, using mkgmap and GroundTruth.

For the small on-board memory of the Sumimit HC, it is most useful to have quite small .IMG tiles (2-3 Mbyte) as this gives more flexibility (for instance if going on a long journey).
