I’ve trying to create “Proximity Alert” for my Garmin devices for more than 6 months and I couldn’t yet. I will detail the steps that I’m following so maybe you can give me a hint on where is my mistake:
- Download data from geofabrick:
wget -c http://download.geofabrik.de/south-america/ecuador-latest.osm.bz2
- Uncompress file
- Filter data to get only “traffic_calming=bump” (that’s what I’m interested in):
osmfilter ecuador-latest.osm --keep= --keep-nodes="traffic_calming=bump" > ecuador-traffic_calming.osm
- Create “Proximity Alert” with GPSBabel:
gpsbabel -i osm -f ecuador-traffic_calming.osm -o garmin_gpi,alerts=1,proximity=50m,speed=15kmh -F ecuador-traffic_calming.gpi
- Copy this file into my Garmin device. It recognices my file but when I pass trough the POIs it doesn’t generate the Sonor Alarm.
Do you know what I’m doing wrong?
