Warning: Contour lines for many countries have been updated and improved recently, so it is recommended to check update dates and download the new contours if needed. Among the improvements are:

  • Substitution of data from the SRTM by data from Jonathan de Ferranti (www.viewfinderpanoramas.org), which don't have the errors and artifacts of the SRTM, especially in mountainous areas
  • Reduction of the number of tiles for each country, which eases the management of the map in the devices
  • Reduction of file sizes, for a faster rendering

(*) 'Errors' column files contain a set of files with different kinds of errors in OpenStreetMap data detected during the map generation, along with links to download the data and fix them easily. More information can be found in the file README_errors included in the download.

(**) Contour lines have been generated from data of the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM) of the NASA. Courtesy NASA/JPL-Caltech. For all areas where data from Jonathan de Ferranti (www.viewfinderpanoramas.org) were available, they have been used with preference on those from SRTM, as they notably improve the information from the SRTM.
The following maps include data from www.viewfinderpanoramas.org:

  • Africa: Algeria, Ethiopia, Morocco, Nigeria, Sudan, Tanzania, Tunisia, Western Sahara
  • America: Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, California, Central America, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico, Peru, Texas, Uruguay, Venezuela
  • Asia: India, Philippines, Thailand Vietnam
  • Europa: British-Isles, France, Italy, Portugal, Switzerland, Turkey
  • Oceania: Australia

(***) Due to the SD cards limit, it is not possible to have the whole Europe map in a single file. So it is necessary to install the map in the computer and then transfer to the GPS card those parts of Europe you are interested in (aproximately half of Europe will fit in a single file).

Collaborate

OpenStreetmap is made by thousands of volunteers. The more we are, the best the map will be, and all of us will benefit of it. There are two ways you can collaborate:

  • If you have a GPS you can log all your tracks and upload your data to OpenStreetMap. Here you have information to get started. You can also collaborate fixing the errors you detect in the maps, adding missing information to the existing data, etc.
  • Hosting OpenStreetMap data requieres powerfull servers, informatic staff, etc. All of it implies expenses, so monetary donations, even small ones, are also important. From here you can make your donations.

This is a great site. Will the Garmin Nuvi 1390 cigarette lighter plug work in a rental car in Ecuador?

Admin:  I suppose so. I don't think cigarette lighter plugs are different in Ecuador.

Do your Spain maps have list of attractions, hotels, etc in them?

Admin:  Yes, you can find those elements under the different search items of your device.

I just downloaded Spain's map on my GPS following the instructions on this site. How do I test the GPS device to see it will actually work when I am in Spain? I tried going to various icons on the GPS, Food, Shopping, etc, but it said No Match.

Admin:  Many models let you simulate you are in a different place than where you really are. Just navigate in the map screen to any place in Spain, tell the device you are at that place and calculate a route from that place.

dont you guys have gps maps for fiji yet

Admin:  I'm afraid not. Please have a look at http://mapas.alternativaslibres.es/moremaps_en.php to see how to support new maps.

Thanks for your help. From what I understood, I have to add OSM + VFP and Contour lines into my Garmin device in order to have OSM + VFP working, correct?

Admin:  That's right for computer versions. If you download the file from the column "File to install on GPS" it already contains contour lines

Hello, I was just wondering what is the meaning of VFP. I have downloaded a map that says OSM + VFP. I have also downloaded the OSM only version and when I compare both maps they look the same. Thank you.

Admin:  VFP means ViewFinderPanoramas, the source from where I get data to build contour lines. OSM+VFP is for the topo map, which consist of OSM base map + contour lines. To use it, you need to download contour lines as a separate download.

What is the type of map compatible with Garmin Nuvi to be downloaded ?

Admin:  Both OSM Base mapa and topographic are compatible. As I suppose you use the nuvi for car navigation, OSM base map is recommended.
