Water on land for North Sydney Suburbs on Garmin navigable maps.

I generated and down loaded a set of Australia Garmin Navigable maps.

The problem occurs in a few suburbs on the north sydney harbour shore, and is that the map displayed on the Garmin has water south of a straight line from the tip of Watsons Bay to approximately Balls head. All north shors suburbs south of that line appear as water (Milsons Point, Kiribilli, Cliftons Gardens etc). The roads display correctly but that background is water.

When I looked at the map in the web it all looked fine.

I’m assuming your talking about the OSM map,perhaps post this as an issue in one of the general forums

Hi Andy,

It looks ok on my (somewhat old) routable files. Is it fixed yet?

I’ll download the latest routable maps tonight and have another look.


Hi Andy

It’s also possible to use img2gps (windows exe, - works in wine if you’re running Linux / mac to convert many .img files into 1 gmapsupp.img file) as well.
As I said on the garmin thread, and gbrandy says above, try osmaustralia.org.
Or, do it yourself - all the tools needed are free.
