Introduction

Download OpenStreetMap data for the whole planet, update existing planet data, add terrain contours generated from SRTM3 database and generate garmin-compatible maps in a single step.

The application wraps following OpenStreetMap processing utilities: Osmosis, Tile Splitter and Mkgmap. In addition, a utility similar to Srtm2osm program has been developed as a part of this application.

  • minimum 2 Gb RAM
  • minimum 150 Gb free disk space for the whole planet maps data (200+ Gb recommended)
  • Sun Java JRE 7 or later

On 64bit systems use 64bit version of Java to avoid out of memory issues. Please visit FrequentlyAskedQuestions for more information.

  1. the program works good , but there is no big map file for gps

    any ideas on what is wrong

    1. Yes, it makes routable maps. For address search to work properly, you need to adjust Mkgmap address search parameters appropriately and provide the boundary file. Please find more information in the Mkgmap documentation http://www.mkgmap.org.uk/doc/options
