I’m trying to get an all UK map for use with my Garmin GPSMap 60csx. I downloaded the tiles and the program to assemble them. But all I’ve got is a folder of zip files. How do I get from there to a readable map for use with Mapsource?
You got 3 versions of the same mapset for different purpose. The one you need are:
osm_routable_mapsource: To use the mapset in Mapsource
osm_routable_gmapsupp: To use as a precompiled mapset on your Garmin device (no Mapsource needed)
As you didn’t mention where you downloaded these files (there are many provider of Gamin-Maps based on OSM-Data) try to unzip osm_routable_gmapsupp. There should be a file gmapsup.img. Copy the file on the SD-Card of your Gamin-Device in the subfolder \garmin. Turn on you device and you should have your map.
Thanks. But how do I download into the GPSmap? How do I access the folder \garmin? I’ve been in every page I can find. As far as I can see no folders are shown. Could you be more specific. Thanks again.
I assume you have an MicroSD card inserted into the device. Then hookup the GPS-receiver with the supplied usb cable to the computer. Go into the menu of your gps device and select the mass-storage option. Now you can copy the gmapsum.img to your microSD card via your computer.
