Hello - I need some help. I have installed an OSM map of Romania on a Garmin, but when I look for something it says that it can't find it. Thanks in advance

ok i have a PNA NAVON N260 I unlocked to be able to put more navigation software I installed on it "Garmin GarminMobileXTforWindowsCE_50020w" then I downloaded basemap "gmapbmap.img (official which offers garmin map) and the Romanian map found on the Internet "Romania.RO.AD2008" then update "Romania.RO.AD2009.10.v3.02" until everything is perfect here every search I found (street or other location) I did everything I go on the road test behave perfectly. if I delete map "Romania.RO.AD2009.10.v3.02" and add the Romanian map OSM streets I found only that he had not the ones that Garmin has OSM map and here I refer to streets Constanta (Putna Street; Arnota Street, Street Prislop). Which I added them a few days ago I downloaded a map from the same place from http://osm.stilpu.org/garmin-routable/ (Garmin-routable-20110313.zip)

If I'm wrong somewhere please tell me.

The way the forum should work is you ask a question, a comment asks for more information,another comment gives it. the question is answered,if it is correct from the questioner's point of view they should tick it,or comment not quite right because....Its good you now have your map.I could not find forum instructions on the wiki they are only easy when you know how as they say.

Well, Strada Putna's in OSM OK (http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=44.191748&lon=28.612595&zoom=18&layers=M). I'm not familiar with the Garmin-for-Windows-CE software but it sounds like you're hitting the general "address search" problems with mkgmap. There's work going on trying to improve address search, but it's not there yet.

I'm guessing that searching for "points of interest" should work though? There aren't many POIs added to the map in Constanta, but there's a supermarket here:


can you find that OK?

How about http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Gosmore ? I've never used it myself but the wiki page says that it supports CE.
