I am a newcomer here. I wish to use the OpenSreetMap in the future. Will this be possible with a GARMIN GPSMAP 60Cx?

Many thanks for your answers and help!

Best regards, vikinger

"Totally impressive GPS unit in every regard" says the OSM wiki: GPSMAP 60C(S)x and 76C(S)x series,

If you want a GB OSM I recommend http://www.talkytoaster.info/ukmaps.htm for a pre built map.I use Vista HCX with it but have helped a pal get OSM onto his gpsmap 60cx he is very pleased with this set up.

I use garmin.na1400.info/routable.php with my 60CSX. This allows you to select from prebuilt areas worldwide or just to generate specific area tiles. It also provides an installer so you can use your new map in Garmin Mapsource too. There can be a wait for the map to be generated for you by the server, currently at around 4 days.

However, due to naming conventions, you can only have one map at a time on your GPS; there is a hack to get round this but I've not tried it. My hack is just to rename the maps internally on the GPS as needed.

I have the same Garmin 60CSX and have been using: http://openmtbmap.org/ successfully for over a year now. It suits me perfectly. Have a look! It looks more frightening than it actually is and does take a little leaning. The instructions provided must be followed very carefully. If you do so you will be pleased with the results.
