    Thumbs up Garmin Routable IMG Files (Australia)

    Garmin Routable IMG Files (Australia)

    OpenStreetMap 001


    Open Street Map Australia

    The following Garmin files are an experimental set of routable Garmin maps based on the new routing version of mkgmap. I've yet to check these fully, so I have no idea how well they will work (however, reports so far from others running routable map creation seems pretty positive. That said, your mileage may vary...)

    I've had some reports of junk maps (including on my own GPS). The set below were rebuilt using a newer build of the software, so they may be substantially better.
    These are now being created nightly. The software used to create them is changing fairly rapidly, so hopefully there will be ongoing improvements for these maps.

    Each night, I'm generating five sets of maps for Australia, and now also for New Zealand, plus the OSM extract files for both countries
    I have changed the bounding area of each map for the Australia set, so there is now no overlap between maps, so routing should be improved
    However, this means that if you are in Western Queenland (specifically west of the NSW border), or in northern Victoria, you will have to get the NT or NSW maps respectively. Australia just doesn't divide into nice little squares easily...

    Lastly, I'm now generating the overview and TDB files for each set (see the relevant Overview package download) as a few people have requested them.

    This is the main set of Australian maps based on the OpenStreetMap data

    This is the main set of New Zealand maps based on the OpenStreetMap data

    For people who want to play around with the source data. The extract should now be refreshing every night at about 3am AEST (assuming I don't turn my computer off)

    Same as above, but for New Zealand.

    This is a custom set of Garmin files that I use when mapping missing roads out in rural areas. They have the zoom levels altered so all road types are visible at the 2km zoom level. The reason for these maps exist is because last weekend I felt very smug with myself mapping some of the unmapped parts of the Brisbane ranges (based on what I could see wasn't mapped on my GPS), only to discover when I got home that it had already been done. It turned out that my GPS did show those roads already mapped, but they weren't visible until you zoomed in to 120m, and I had the GPS zoom set to about 1.2km (which is far more useful a level when you are driving in sparsely populated areas).

    Bike track focused maps with the bike tracks given prominence over roads.

    Routable Garmin maps. These are still under heavy development, but seem pretty good so far. There's still a bunch of issue kicking around though - turn restrictions, searching and the like - that will get fixed over the coming months

    Maps where any streets that do not have a name are highlighted. Excellent for doing clean up work in a given area.
