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

I downloaded the .img files for Europe. It doesn't come with a tdb file. I tried to create this file using this command line: java -jar mkgmap.jar --tdbfile gmapsupp.img I get an error message: jar: illegal option

I'm using the most recent java in WindowsXP.

How do I fix this? Dave S.

There are lots of different OSM-based map downloads for Garmin devices. None are any more "official" than any others. Which ones are you asking about?

Also, why are you trying to create a .tdb file?

"java -jar" should work. Please add the output of "java -version" to your question. Maybe you have an old Java version?
