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

This must probably be the most stupid question ever on OSM-help. But nowhere do I find a download button nor a method to select an area which I want a map of. Why is it so hard to find?

I mean a map for a handheld gps. In my case Oregon 600 and/or Edge 705.

When you say "map" do you mean something that you can print out, something that you load onto a handheld GPS, satnav or mobile phone, or something that you can load into a graphics program to do more work on?

Openstreetmap is a project that concentrates on creating a database of open geodata. While there are some services on the main project website, we rely on other parties to provide a myriad of services based on our geodata.

In our wiki we have a list of places that offer ready made maps for Garmin GPSs.

P.S. Simply searching this help site for "Garmin" would have given you the same answer much faster.

Here is what I found to be a good guide to the processes of getting an OSM onto a Garmin the first time. It is done in a similar way at other 'OSM Map On Garmin' download sites. dcrainmaker
