I would like to replace original Garmin maps with OpenStreetMap on my GPS. I downloaded maps from the page (file gmapsupp.img). Where should I put it ? I use GPS with memory card. I would like to delete original maps. What is the name of file I should delete ?
You need to put the file in the Garmin directory off the root directory. The old map should have the same name. Some Garmin GPSs will only read a map named gmapsupp.img however with a lot of the newer ones you can use any name with an img extension so you could rename it if you have more then 1 map at the same time. You can use the Garmin dir. in memory or if your GPS has a SD card slot you could use it. With a SD card you could have 2 maps with the same name 1 in memory and 1 on the card. If you use a SD card and it doesn’t have a Garmin dir make one.
My Nuvi 360 has a original USA map named gmapbmap.img. Can I use files named gmapsupp.img? I am facing problems using this name maps, not finding cities I am looking for.
Thanks for the help and pacience.
The file gmapbmap.img is the so called basemap. Do you find the OSM map in the list of maps? Is it activated?
I only know the problem that the search for cities also shows results from the basemap, sometimes very far away.
Thanks for the reply. No I do not see OSM map in the list of maps.
Is it normal not to find places of a certain country while abroad of it?
I am in Brazil and have downloaded european countries maps and f.e. in France map I can not find Paris.
