after some tests and therefore improvement, I want to publish a small tool to make small maps for the garmin etrex 10. I made this, because I like the greyscale display, that is perfectly visible under all circumstances, but creating maps takes too long.
creating small maps in a few minutes for the etrex 10, without knowledge of osmconvert, mkgmap, osmosis, batch…
(and possibly other garmin devices without routing)
just click ‘osm-export’, browser will open OSM-map where you can find the coordinates of your desired map borders,
copy paste them into the 4 input- boxes. Then press ‘Start!’ If your etrex 10 is connected, this will directly write the map onto your device >
caution: it will overwrite the old map on this device, because only one map is possible. So backup before.*
uses overpass server to download just the data, that is needed
downloads directly the tools osmconvert, mkgmap and wget, so no user know how is needed
no (on etrex 10) useless node/ routing information makes maps incredible small.
scripted in autoit, so change for your needs.
In this post http://forum.openstreetmap.org/viewtopic.php?pid=412018#p412018 you will find some more information, in german.
Here etrex.zip I’ve uploaded script and compiled program
