Have loaded osm tiles downloaded using sd card link img file but when i scroll onto them on world basemap they only appear as white tiles with faint crosshatching. World map display ok at tile edges. Any suggestions?

How and from where are you downloading the .img files? You cannot use .osm tiles directly.

@Wafbob: Please could you correct your spelling and use more words to describe what you want to do and what does not work. Currently it is hard to understand.

nevw - They are .img files. I have downloaded several map tiles before onto a micro sd card as an .img file and they have always worked when I installed them into the gps device. I downloaded the current one exactly the same way but when I scroll into the OSM base map from onto the area I downloaded the tile for the area only shows up white with no detail other than a very feint crosshatching. When I scroll out of the area the standard base map re-appears. Hope the spelling is acceptable.

Perhaps this means "map tiles" from ?

Yes, that was the download site. Always downloaded map tiles from here onto sd card and has always worked, up till latest download.

As you have used the service successfully many times prior, but the latest has not worked, I suggest that something has gone askew with the map generation/download and that you should try a fresh extract.
You could raise the issue on the Garmin Maps section of the OpenStreetMap forum where the developer of the map service, Lambertus, is one of the moderators.
