I’m completely new on Garmin and OSM. Awesome maps though! Unfortunately I got some problems with finding cities and streets in Denmark. There are some shown, but I guess only the “big/giant” cities.
I downloaded Germany, The Netherlands and Denmark from http://garmin.openstreetmap.nl/ and I have tried to create my “own” map by selecting the tiles. I downloaded the .IMG file (which was packed in by .zip), after that I put the img file into my microSD card (32gb) in the folder called “Map”. Powered on the garmin device and selected the correct map and tried to go to the following: Where To? → Address → Change country → “D” → Done → Selected Denmark and De (tried both) → spell city → L → and only 9 cities appear which starts with the letter L. Denmark has way more than 9 cities starting with the letter “L”.
The strange thing about this is in my opinion, when I go to view map, and go to Denmark, the map is very detailed and all the other cities I was looking for are shown in de map. When I make a route in Basecamp and then import the route on the Garmin, there will be no struggle. But then when I need the GPS I will always need to carry my notebook with me. That will really be a pain in a place where the sunlight doesn’t shine.
Just to be clear and understandable, I only have this issue with the map of Denmark, the map of The Netherland or Germany doesn’t have these problems. The main reason why I would like to use OSM is the details, OSM offers way better details in my opinion. Furthermore the maps of OSM are mostly always up-to-date, very handy when planning a long distance trip. OSM has more to offer in my opinion, so I would really appreciate every single piece of help who could lead to a solution :D.
Help will be very appreciated
