Hi, we purchased a Garmin from the new DRIVE series and installed the OSM map for Chile, the map was downloaded from this website

When we want to calculate a route (eg. Santiago-Valparaiso) it shows "Route cannot be calculated".

I can view the maps and search locations, it shows all of them, but the possibility to route is not working.

Could there be a compatibility issue with the new Garmin Drive series? If not, what else could be causing the issue.

Thank you.

I have a Nuvi 1310t Garmin and "Where to" search often fails but browsing the map or using Co-ords always calculates a route. My garmin can be set to accept decimal degrees, same as OSM, just use negative values for west or south. Just take lat long from

You could test that map by using Garmin Basecamp

It may in fact be a incompatibility. As far as I know, Garmin did not release the specifications for their map format.

We do not yet have OSM-relevant information about this device series in our documentation wiki.

I would try other OSM-based maps for Garmins. Info: there is no single official download of OSM maps for Garmins. Have a look there: .

Hi Garam I am still unclear as the address of the OSM maps on your attached lists are the same as I download from OSM for adding to the micro SD card. So my reading would be that I keep doing what I have done for micro cards maps on Nuvi Gps , now on Drive Gps. Do you think that is right. Thanks

Anyone with a Drive 40 able to check this. I see no reason why routing would not work on this model apart from operator error or map compilation error. I assume that the op has tried other routable osm map versions by now.

It doesn't support the loading of routes or saving of pre-planned ones but the using the “Where To" should guide you to your destination.
