I appreciate any help that you can provide a person new to OSM and not very tech savvy.
I am currently deciding between using paper maps or buying a Garmin 62S for a bicycle tour of South America beginning in Colombia. There will be huge advantages with the Garmin, but I’m trying to figure out the feasibility of it. I understand that I would be able to download OSM maps for the countries I need to an SD card before I leave, and then use the cards in the GPS. However, I do not plan to have a laptop with me and I will not have the trip exactly mapped out before I leave. Would I be able to use the maps and GPS to program my route from the GPS as I go, or is it necessary to do it using Basecamp software (or alternative) from a computer?
Any other comments or insights from anybody who has used OSM street maps in South America?
Thanks in advance
