About the Maps - Please Read

Maps are available Worldwide. They are usually updated every Friday.

- Map Data

All maptiles are compiled with mkgmap using map data from openstreetmap.org & Contributors. You can use and edit the map data by visiting openstreetmap.org.

Thanks to Geofabrik for providing the map data snapshots which I use to create the maps.

-- For Copyrights please see the Installer or if you unextract the installer see the file copyright.txt.

 

Contourlines/DEM data:

The altitude data for the contourlines is from varying sources in the following priority (if available):

  1. LIDAR data from open government data and other openly available sources - collected and converted to hgt format by - Sonny - https://data.opendataportal.at/dataset/dtm-austria This data is very very high quality and resolution - there is no better open data available according to my knowledge.
  2. ALOS World 3D30 - überall zwischen N60° und S60°
  3. SRTM 1" v3.0 - very rarely for some tiles missing in ALOS data - also only between N60° and S60°.
  4. Viewfinderpanormas 1" - then 3" - above N60° / below S60° as there is no SRTM data nor ALOS or LIDAR Data avialble.
  5. SRTM 3" v3.0 (very very rarely, 8 tiles only)

more exact info which data is used where - inside the copyright.txt files.

Programs to Display the Openmtbmap

Besides being shown on (nearly) all Garmin GPS devices - most People will use Garmin Basecamp (v4 or later) or Garmin Mapsource 6.16.3 to show the maps on their Desktop and plan tours/trips.

For anyone on the good side of earth AKA Linux - Openmtbmap.org maps are also correctly shown in Qlandkarte_GT - QLandkarte_GT is compatible with all big OS (Linux, MacOSx and well Windows too). Linux users can alternatively install Mapsource 6.13.6 in WINE. The .exe files can be unpacked with 7zip. After unpacking you find instructions for Qlandkarte / Linux use in a .txt file (informations... .txt).

For Linux/Unix users there is also a script to unpack the maps, and automatically create a gmapsupp: https://github.com/btittelbach/openmtbmap_openvelomap_linux You can unpack the .exe with 7-zip , ( Linux users use p7zip-full --> see here for more details), MacOSx Users can use "Unarchiver" (requires v3.0 or newer) . After unpacking you find instructions for Qlandkarte / Linux use in a .txt file (informations... .txt).

For General Use - Basecamp is much better than Mapsource by now - The only thing were Mapsource is better is selecting parts of maps to send. The only usable Mapsource version is 6.16.3. Mapsource versions 6.14 to 6.15.6 are complete junk. Also note that Mapsource versions prior to 6.16.1 do not show all ways and pathes so they are not really usable. Mac OSx users please use Qlandkarte GT or convert maps and use Basecamp v4 (or newer). Note there are readily converted maps available for most countries at the end of this page.

ATTENTION - MapInstall 4.2.0 is partly broken. It will come as Update with Basecamp 4.7.0 but can also update via other Garmin Tools. Best downgrade - see also here: Do Not Update to Basecamp v4.7.0

Problems - Help - Tutorials

Beginners Guide can be found here: get started with openmtbmaps

Install Basecamp/Mapsource: tutorials/install-mapsource/

Install the Openmtbmap on your PC: tutorials/install/ explains the options of the installer.

Send Maps to GPS with Mapsource/Basecmap: tutorials/send-maps-to-your-gps/mapsource/ I recommend to allways send maps to an external data card and not internal memory. (this way if something goes wrong, or maps would be damaged you run less danger of wrecking your GPS).

Alternative: Use create_gmapsupp.img.bat and place the newly created gmapsupp.img into /garmin folder on your GPS. Address search cannot be included this way. If you use create_gmapsupp.img_with_mkgmap address search will be enabled, but you need depending on the size of the map quite a lot of free RAM.

Send maps to GPS with mkgmap (for Unix users): tutorials/send-maps-to-your-gps/mkgmap/

Mapsource Error / debug Mapsource: There is a problem with the MapSource registry. Please re-install Mapsoures and start again Solve with Mapsource Fix Or with Mapset Toolkit

Please also read the FAQ

Change Layout and Contrast of the maps

On installation you can choose the layout of the maps. Traditional layout is for Qlandkarte GT, Mapsource and Basecamp and offers a good layout and design for big screens. On the GPS thin, classic and wide or easy or hiking offer high contrast for best orientation while riding your bike or hiking.

In order to change the layout - simply run openmtbmap_country_change_layout.exe (this is also linked in your Start --> Programs Folder for each map). This also enables you to quickly change the layout before sending maps to your GPS device, and then quickly change it back for better planning on your desktop.

You can adapt the .TYP-files, which are responsible for the layout - and therefore the map colours, to your liking by using http://www.maptk.dnsalias.com/. Do not use http://ati.land.cz/gps/typdecomp/editor.cgi because it is not fully compatible and may corrupt the .TYP-file.

Current Issues

The address search is not working consistently. Most problems are due to inconsistent data structures in OSM address data.

- General: Autorouting over longer distances on GPS works only with Via Points. Solve with WinGDB: plan-routes-efficiently

- Autorouting needs attributes like tracktype, bicycle routes, mtb:scale, sac_scale, mtb routes and others to work well. So keep care to enter those details into OSM. (not all are needed, but enough for me to guesstimate wheter a street is cyclefriendly/mtbriendly or not).

- Non Connected ways and overlapping ways without node, this is the main problem and a problem of the underlaying map data - please check here: http://keepright.ipax.at/report_map.php Only check/enable: "almost Junctions" , "intersections without junctions" as well as "overlapping ways". This helps you to quickly spot the erros. You can then follow the link to Potlatch (or also JOSM is integrated for JOSM users) and quickly correct mistakes! Watch out not to connect ways that are not connected in reality (i.e. a way crosses another on a brigde, here no connecting node is the right solution). - If you use

- Windows 2000 you may need to install the "reg" command : Reg cmd at Microsoft. Batches are incompatible to earlier Windows versions.

- Note sometimes sea/lakes are missing/emtpy. This is not an issue, but currently not differently possible. It is usually a problem in OSM data.

Notice on Updating Maps

If you want to be notified by email on map updates please go to the frontpage and enter your email address in the subscribe field of the left sidebar. You only get an e-mail when there are changes besides a simple map data update. Map updates are usually every Thursday night / Friday morning. You can look at the server to see the date of map upload. To update the maps, simply run a newer .exe Download.

Overlapping maps in border regions

While you can join maps of different countries, routing over the boundary is a bit shaky, and you will have one map overlaying the other with white background. As long as mkgmap cannot create randomly shaped overview maps (currently only rectangles), this problem is not solvable. There is however the possibility to download a Europe map, which will be updated every 4-6 weeks. Get Europe Map here (donation needed): https://openmtbmap.org/support/europe-map/

Velomap and Openmtbmap of the same Country -- Problems

If you install an Openmtbmap and a VeloMap of the same country with contourlines as separate download (and Spain as well as Canary Islands), you should only send the contourlines once (meaning with either Openmtmbap or Velomap of the country). Else you GPS might not show the maps, or worse not even start until maps are deleted. There are several possibilities.

a) Install both maps without contourlines and contourlines separately (install separate contourlines only map option in installer). You have not trouble.

b) be careful here: Select the map as usual in Basecamp/Mapinstall, then go to the list of the selected tiles ready to be sent to the GPS, scroll down to the bottom, and unselect the contourlines only tiles from the list.

-- This is not a problem with countries where contourlines are fully integrated like Germany, Alps, Austria,......

Compatibility - Standard (Unicode) vs Non Unicode (cannot authenticate maps)

In general just download the Maps from the first "OpenMTBMap" tab - they are in Unicode if useful. Some maps by default are in Unicode. You can identify them by (Unicode) note behind the name - alll countries/maps not listed on the "Non Unicode" tab are anyhow Non Unicode. If you get the message - "cannot authenticate maps", and you have you have one of the following devices:

  • All Garmin devices presented 2016 or newer
  • Edge 1000
  • Epix
  • Etrex 20x / 30x (not "etrex 30")
  • Etrex Touch 25/35
  • GPS Maps 64 series
  • Montana 610, 680 (not 600 / 650)
  • Oregon 700,750
  • Some recent Nuvi devices - as well as some super old devices that do not support Unicode. (E.g. Garmin Vista C, GPS Maps 60 C)

you will need to download the "non unicode" version of the map instead. So get the map from the "non unicode openmtbmap" tab instead. Only maps of regions where several different scripts are used - are in unicode. If Latin is the predominant script - then of course no unicode map is offered. If your device can display Unicode maps - then of course get the standard version - meaning Unicode.

Feedback

Please comment if you like theese maps or even better tell other people about them (forums, blog about it, twitter, etc…) In case maps break Mapsource or don't work - please write exactly which downloads don't work and the time of download as well as your OS and Mapsource version.. Please also look here https://openmtbmap.org/download/#problems-help-tutorials or in the FAQ

Map Downloads by GWDG

Premium maps are only downloadable for people who have a openmtbmap membership. For last map update: please look at recent posts for changes - usually maps are updated at least every 7 days with updates on Thursday/Friday.

Contourlines Premium Downloads

Most countries, especially the popular ones, have the contourlines already integrated. However for several countries the contourlines are rather large (rule of thumb if contourlines have more data than the maps) and I integrate them, but you need to download them separately (once). The installer will ask for the contourlines file as soon as you activate the checkbox to integrate the contourlines in the installer. You do not need to extract the contourlines - this will be done by the installer (and is only needed once. On updates you don't need to redo it).

In general it is fine to only update the map, as I try to change the contourlines as seldom as possible.

Non Unicode Premium Maps - Only offered for Non Latin Using Countries/Regions

In general just download the Maps from the first "OpenMTBMap" tab - they are in Unicode if useful. Some maps by default are in Unicode. You can identify them by (Unicode) note behind the name - alll countries/maps not listed on the "Non Unicode" tab are anyhow Non Unicode.

Only maps of regions where several different scripts are used - are in unicode. If Latin is the predominant script - then of course no unicode map is offered. If your device can display Unicode maps - then of course get the standard version - meaning Unicode.

Note1: if you install the non Unicode version of a map - you will overwrite the Unicode map. You can only have either or installed.

Note2: The contourlines are identical for openmtbmap/velomap and unicode or non unicode. You only need to download them once. On updates it's enough to re-download and reinstall the map installer.

Note3:Here only those countries are listed - where the standard download is Unicode. If you don't find a country here - look at the standard downloads.

Note4 - local language maps of: Sri-Lanka, Nepal and Cambodia are in latin1  - so the local language maps are not very useful. There is no ANSI Codepage available (besides Unicode) that would support the script/garmin units. Israel-Palestine map is in hebrew (so the Palestine area is not useful). Afghanistan codepage is for Dari - Pashto is not supported outside of Unicode.

      Hallo Dominic – du hast leider statt hier zu verlängern auf VeloMap einen neuen Account angelegt. Ich hab dir hier mal für 1 Jahr verlängert – aber dass geht nicht automatisch – da ich die datenbanken nicht abgleichen kann in dem Punkt – und ich kann die Subscription Daten hier im folgejahr auch nicht empfangen. Am besten wäre evtl ich lösche hier deinen Account – und die lädst die OpenMTBMaps via velomap.org herunter.

    Danke

    Ich habe nun alles gefunden und natürlich auch den “Mitgliedsjahresbeitrag” eingezahlt.
    Ich glaube das von Anfang an das Montana ein Problem hatte den jetzt gehts auf einmal.

    Thanks 🙂

    • extremecarver

      Should arrive in 12-14 hours – I had some problems updating the Europe Map and before problems accessing the server – plus adding new things which will be online soon – therefore the update comes late (I do consider to move Updates to every 10 days or 14 days only however – not sure but it takes already 3 days for one full set of updates excluding europe continent map).

    Hallo
    Ja aber da hat es leider auch nicht funktioniert.
    Warum ?
    lg

    • extremecarver

      Was heißt es funktioniert nicht? Wenn du Fehlermeldung bezgülich nicht authorisierten Karten bekommst – dann ist es Unicode Karte – diese am Gerät/PC löschen – neu installieren – neu senden.
      Wenn Karte in der Kartenliste auftaucht – aber kein Karteninhalt – dann liegt es an MapInstall 4.2.0 (überprüfe ob die gmapsupp.img korrekte Größe hat) – bzw musst du beim senden unbedingt per Drag selektieren – nie per Klick.

    Hallo
    Ich habe eine Frage bzüglich deiner Nicht Unikaten die ich angeblich für mein Montana 680 benötige : Wie sind die gekennzeichnet oder wo finde ich die ??
    Vielleicht liegt es ja daran das ich keine deiner Karten im Garmin ansehen kann.
    Habe jetzt auf jeden Fall das Basecamp und Mapsorce downgegradet und es funktioniert trozdem mit keiner Masnahme.

    • extremecarver

      “Nicht Unicode” bzw “Non Unicode” – du benötigst sie immer wenn hinter dem Land was du Downloaden möchtest “Unicode” steht – und dass betrifft nur Länder/Kontinente wo eben Latein nicht die einzige offizielle Schriftart ist. Alternative ist gehackte Firmware am Montana.
      Zu finden im “Non Unicode / Nicht Unicode” Tab auf der Downloadseite.

    Hallo
    Habe heute die Alps Map vom 8.1.2019 auf mein Base Camp geladen, die Karte auf den micro chip geladen und in mein Garmin 64st gesteckt, wie immer. Nur kann mein Gerät die Karten nicht mehr erkennen.
    Habt ihr etwas geändert?
    Was kann ich machen?

  • Mati

    Hi, gibt es eine Möglichkeit schon bei der Installation der Europakarte auf dem PC – und nicht erst beim Übertragen auf das GPS – einen Kartenbereich auszuwählen?

    Ich finde die Auswahl per Mapinstall sehr fehlerträchtig und es ist auch problematisch, wenn man in Basecamp Kartenbereiche sieht und dann vor Ort feststellt, dass diese gar nicht auf dem GPS gelandet sind.
    Ideal wäre wenn man ein Polygon (oder auch nur ein Rechteck) zur Kachelauswahl schon bei der Installation mitgeben könnte.
    LG
    Matthias

    • extremecarver

      Nein das geht nicht – du könntest aber Mapsource zum senden verwenden – da hast du viel bessere Übersicht (allerdings max 4GB pro Karte die du sendest).

      • Mati

        Das ist schade – nimm es als “feature-request”. Ich fände eine solche Funktion sehr praktisch.
        LG Matthias

        • extremecarver

          da ich da auf Garmin Tools angewiesen bin – wird dass nicht machbar sein. Also Maposource großes Fenster – oder MapInstall >4GB und kleines Fenster. Normal reicht 4GB eh massig für eine Tour/Reise – und du kannst ja auch mehrmals 4GB senden (sollte halt nix doppelt sein)

          • Mati

            Vielen Dank für die Erläuterung. Ich wusste nicht das schon für die Erstellung des Installers Garmin Tools genutzt werden müssen. Wenn ich also eine eigene Karte – z.B. für BEL/NDL/LUX analog zur Alpenkarte mtbalps.exe eine mtbbenelux.exe erstellen will muss ich also die ganze Toolchain zum Rendern eine Karte selbst auf dem Rechner installieren?
            Ich habe zwar bisher auf Openstreetmap schon mal selbst Wege nachgetragen oder korrigiert, aber mit dem Prozess des Renderns habe ich mich bisher noch nicht beschäftigt.
            LG Matthias

            • extremecarver

              Hallo Matthias – ja korrekt. Und du bräuchtest dafür einen Style, typ-file usw. Da gehört recht viel dazu. Aber du kannst ja aus der Europakarte den Ausschnitt senden den du brauchst – es macht keinen Sinn da zig extra Zusammenstellungen anzubieten. Da dies eine MTB Karte ist – machen die Alpen sehr viel Sinn. Andere Zusammenstellungen sind doch deutlich schwieriger eingrenzbar bzw für weniger Leute nützlich.

  • gbal

    Hi Felix,
    now I saw that the Alps map has been updated on 08/01/2019 (most of the other have not yet).
    I downloaded and installed Alps and it seems to work fine.
    But I see that the Uninstall software (traditionally named OpenMTBMap_alps_uninstall.exe (116 KB) now is called OpenMTBMap_alps_uninstall.exe.nsis (63.6 KB) that is an extension unreachable by my Windows 10.
    Is it a mistake or, if not, what have I do to use the uninstall procedure (yes I know I could do it by hand but….)
    Regards

    • extremecarver

      that’s very strange. Never heard of this error. Try to install again if it happens again – the uninstaller is dynamically created while installing – so it should never show the .nsis

      As for the other maps – grr, the server rebooted I don’t know why. I just restarted the updates (the problem before was that I could not login to the server – as I had a problem with my laptop and could not access the security key – so could not login to the server that compiles the maps while traveling last week).

      • gbal

        Hi Felix. Unveiled the mystery. If you launch the compatted file .exe (i.e. mtbalps.exe) all the files are correctly installed, OpenMTBMap_alps_uninstall.exe too.
        But if you just un7zip mtbalps.exe into a folder the uninstaller becomes OpenMTBMap_alps_uninstall.exe.nsis.
        Why I do this? Because I don’t like the name assigned to the map using the first method so I use the second way and then by MapSetToolKit I can assign the name I like to the map in Basecamp.
        Bye

    • extremecarver

      ah a quick way to remove a map otherwise is to use “mapset toolkit” – remove the map using it, then delete the folder (do not delete the folder without removing the map using a 3rd party tool, or directly from windows registry – else Basecamp may show errors – and certainly if you use it Mapsource will not start).

  • nrseife

    One more….in some cases (such as Bhutan) I cannot find the contour lines (under the contourlines tap), or am I looking in the wrong area/tap? Thanks!

  • nrseife

    I am trying to upload my maps to my Fenix 5 plus. I do get an authentication error. Instead of deletign and re-installing the non unicode maps, could I just use what I have and ignore that error? If so, what will happen (names displayed incorrectly or totally corrupted file?)? Thanks!

  • editorial-montana

    Vielen Dank für die viele Mühe und die tollen Karten!!
    Eine Bitte hätte ich: Könntest Du bitte bei Andorra bei Gelegenheit den Kartenschnitt überprüfen? Normalerweise reichen die Karten bis knapp über die Grenzlinie, so das bei zwei angrenzenden Ländern keine Lücke entsteht. Die Andorra-Karte hört jedoch vor allem im Süden bei der Grenze zu Spanien schon einiges vor der Grenzlinie auf, soweit innerhalb, dass die Überlappung von Spanien das leider nicht auffängt und einige „blinde Flecken“ entstehen.
    Wäre supergenial, wenn Du Andorra auch etwas über die Landesgrenze hinaus schneiden könntest. 🙂
    Ganz lieben Dank im Voraus!
    Gruß
    Birgit

  • Leisetreter

    Hallo,
    nach der Installation von mtbus-pacific.exe mit us-pacific_contours.7z in Basecamp fehlen in der Mitte von Big Island (Hawaii) die Höhenlinien. Ich vermute da fehlen Kacheln in der Contours-Datei.
    Wenn man das beheben kann wäre ich sehr dankbar.

    Ansonsten vielen Dank für die hervorragende Arbeit!

    • extremecarver

      Ich schaue dass ich das behebe – wird aber ein paar Tage dauern. Ich hatte nicht genug Speicherplatz am Server um alle Daten aufzubewahren. Solche Fehler sind ein paar passiert – den muss ich übersehen haben (ist leider nie einfach rauszubekommen woran es liegt).

    • extremecarver

      So – nun ist es korrigiert. In 10Minuten sollten die neuen Höhenlinien und neue Karten online sein (Karte und Höhenlinien werden neu benötigt!).

  • morrigu76

    Quick question:

    Are the individual, non-premium maps the same as the continent maps – ie., if I download a map for a continent, does it include the same data as the maps for the individual countries combined, or are the individual maps more detailed?
    Also, there are contour lines for australia and for australia&oceania. Is australia just a subset of a&o?
    It would be nice if this was made a bit clearer on the website (or maybe I was juust too blind to find the piece of information)

    (sorry if this has been asked before)

  • gladiatore814

    Good evening.
    I am attaching other 2 images with the points extracted from today’s track, where my gps crashes constantly and in some cases I have to remove the batteries to restart the device. The problem does not occur if I load other osm maps, or if I remove all the maps from the GPS.
    This problem is very annoying and forces me to not be able to use your maps.
    I also tried to install the map without the level curves, but the problem remains.
    The map used is Europe Non Unicode and I also tried the Map of Italy that you download for free.
    Greetings.
    -Gianluca-

    • extremecarver

      Hi Gianluca – I had a look at that place – I guess the super short highway=steps in the middle of that broken section most likely cause it. Did the other maps you try also route via the highway=steps?
      usually road sections should be minimum ~5m long for garmin devices – however there some sections are like 1-2m long only.
      I will see if i can do something there.

      • gladiatore814

        Hello. In these points we pass very often and only with the openmtbmap we encounter problems. I tried the free Italy version and also the non-unicode Europe version. These are paths that can be traveled on foot or by bike. They are not highways.

        • extremecarver

          I know – but the problem here is a supermicro mapping – it’s not customary in openstreetmap to add a highway=steps steps_count=1 to a footway. Footways often have steps – so those super short ways create problems. Garmin can only have ways over ~5.4m in length – now you cannot throw away those ways because that would break routing too – so the map compiler tries to make them longer – in this case with my style creating a map that crashes the device. I’m in contact with the developes of mkgmap to see if a solution can be found. Otherwise I have to say – I cannot fix it – because I will break routing in other places. I do not want to meddle with the osm data itself here – as it’s not technically fully incorrect – even though a single step should actually not be longer than 30-40cm – however is like 1-2m in the database. Creating such implied but properly incorrect micromapping causes problems for routable maps.

  • snud

    Ja, im Basecamp wird die aktuelle Karte korrekt angezeigt. Ich habe zwischenzeitlich eine alte Kartenversion (ca. Anfang 2016) installiert. Da tritt der Fehler nicht auf (habe noch keine Karten am Gerät deaktiviert). Ich nehme an, damit ist das Thema “leere Kachel” nicht die mögliche Ursache, oder?

    • extremecarver

      Okay – dass ist komisch. Nimm stattdessen einfach die Deutschlandkarte statt auf so eine alte Version zurückzugreifen. Das Überlappen kann natürlich nur passieren wenn du noch anderen Karten am Gerät installiert hast. Ist nur eine Karte aktiviert kann auch nichts überlappen. Dass die alte Karte nicht überlappt wird, die neue schon ist aber prinzipiell möglich – aber halt nur wenn noch andere Karten aktiviert sind.

  • snud

    Hallo,
    habe mit der Baden Württemberg Karte ein Problem. Die Karte wird in einem bestimmten Bereich nicht dargestellt (siehe Bild im Anhang), das ist ausgerechnet der Bereich meiner Hometrails. Ich habe einen Orgeon 450 und die Karte mit Basecamp Versin 4.3.4 installiert. Mehrfachinstallation, sowie auf das Gerät oder die Speicherkarte sowie Reset auf Werkseinstellungen, haben nichts genützt. Gibt es eine Möglichkeit zur Problembeseitigung? Danke und Gruß

    • extremecarver

      Ich nehm an – in Basecamp wird die Karte korrekt angezeigt? Dann deaktiviere mal alle anderen Karten auf deinem Gerät – ich nehm an du hast ein weiteres Bundesland/Land und von dort ragt eine leere Kachel rein die deine BW Karte überlagert.
