Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Several years ago I downloaded maps for a GPS,and somehow got them to work.I'm old and don't remember how it went.I am leaving for Europe on Monday and would like to have maps for my Garmin 500 Nuvi.2 years ago I took a motorcycle trip through South America and couldn't couldn't figure it out.But in Mexico I met a guy that loaded maps on my GPS that saved me.I have spent a lot of time trying to figure this out.But it seems that all the forum talk is geared to people that are well versed in this stuff.Nothing for the idiots like me.

The one time I managed to download maps to my GPS from OSM,it gave me a world map that I could select areas from.It's not the same now.I am completely lost.There is nothing that helps the below average GPS user.I have spent a lot of time trying to figure this out.And I would rather spend the time figuring this out by myself.But at a point you realize you are over your head-hopelessly and have to ask for help.Please,if you can,direct me to a good link that has instructions that an idiot can understand.

I'm guessing you are looking for this: http://garmin.openstreetmap.nl/

It lets you select individual boxes on the map or countries from the dropdown menus and will give you a file you can put on your Garmin device.
