Quote from: pschoggens on April 09, 2012, 07:02:07 AM Does OSM charge to place a business name on their map and if they don't pay up remove them and the road they are on?
QuoteProcedure to load multiple "OSM World Routable" maps in Windows:Download the first selection of tiles from garmin.openstreetmap.nlRun the installer. The default map install location is C:\Garmin\Maps\OSM World Routable.Rename the installed folder to C:\Garmin\Maps\SomethingElseThatMakesSenseToYou.Open MapSetToolKitSelect "Families\OSM World Routable" in the right scroll box.Click the 0Uninstall button.(Don't worry, this just deletes the old registry settings.)Click the Install Button. Another dialog will pop up.Select the Browse Button beside the TDBfile box and browse to the maps folder you renamed.Select the TDB file in that folder. (It will be named 6324000.tdb)Click the Browse Button beside the "Overview Map" box and select 6324000.img. (DO NOT SELECT 6324000_MDR.IMG!!!!) (If you do you will render MapSource/BaseCamp unworkable until you use MapSetToolKit to uninstall this mapset.)Add the MapSet Name, the Registry Name, and the Family ID in the popup dialog. (The Family ID should be 4 digits. Don't use 2000 because that's the default FID for OSM maps.)( Don't use an FID that's already listed in the MapSetToolKit scroll box.) Click the Apply button.
Quote from: BoydFor road navigation I use Garmin City Navigator. It has many features not supported by any free maps (rich POI database, full address lookup/routing, lane assist, speed limits). If you don't need Canada, get the Lower 49 version which $60. Register your GPS and you will get a 10% discount code that lowers this to $54. To me, this was a no-brainer due to the added functionality not to mention the time you would spend screwing around with downloads, etc.For topo maps.... I make my own and they are better than anything else available for my area IMHO
