Making maps for Garmin from OSM data is relatively easy. There are many, see:

Map Making Support / Re: Having Issues with Compiling

You can run multiple compilations simultaneously, but cgpsmapper is a bit tricky. You need to set separate temporary directory for each instance and set different affinity for each instance. I usually run 8 instances on my i7. It takes about 40 minutes to compile about 3.8GB.

Mkgmap uses multithreading by default.

Shields are only added to lines, not to POI.

MapTK include some functions for converting mp to GPX.

Looks good. Nice to know, that hardware is up to the task, even if there is no reason to use satellite view on a highway.

One of the problems with topo maps on nuvi is that nuvi can't cope with scrolling when driving a bit faster. Maybe newer models are more powerful. I wonder, how fast can you drive with a raster map?

Somehow I doubt DriveTrack can display topo maps properly. At least I haven't found any screen shot, which shows more than contour lines on a green background. Probably support for topo is the same as in DriveSmart.

Editbin is a part of Microsoft developer tools, probably comes with Visual C++ or similar packets.

I'm quite sure, that if file is too big for GPSMapEdit, then it will be too big for cgpsmapper too. You should rather edit separate files and create an mapset with multiple img. Or maybe you could simplify files before merging. Please reconsider what are you going to do, because it doesn't look like GPSMapEdit is the limiting stage.

You can use action File -> Add in GPSMapEdit to join mp files. Please note, that cgpsmapper has a file size limit too, you won't be able to compile, if resulting mp file is too big.

GPSMapEdit is a 32-bit application, which uses up to 2GB of memory. On 64-bit system you can increase this value to 4GB by patching exe header with editbin, but I doubt if this will help with your file.

When GPSMapEdit opens an img container, it shows its content as a list. You don't have to load all at once, you can select only some elements to load and then eventually repeat the same process with other elements.

Looks like Mapsource. Maybe try MapInstall instead?
Unfortunately latest version of MapInstall is damaged, you should try older one, like 4.0.4.

Could you copy messages that are displayed by install*.bat?

Hi Entreat,

when I add a map to this site, I can select countries, which are covered by it. But there is only a predefined set of countries, from which I can choose. I publish a full map of Africa, but because of above limitation, search doesn't show it all.

See my maps here:

General Discussion / Re: Downloaded Map Not Complete

But the installation goes way to fast and only 1.36 mb ends up installed on my Oregon???
Isn't it the recent BaseCamp/MapInstall at work?

If you have installed BaseCamp 4.70, then downgrade it to previous version, it will transfer maps to GPS correctly (You will return to version, which sends reports to Garmin though).

I use the standard windows zip files for the maps I make because that way I know they will open on a Mac without any special software.
7-zip can create common zip archive too, but using 7z format I get file sizes about 10-15% lower. I feel like being kind of ecological saving space and data transfer ;)

IMHO 7-zip is one of the best file archivers available and is free.
