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

I've been mapping bike trails and foot paths in Red Deer, Canada. An example here:


You can see that the tags for the Bob Johnstone Trail are set at "highway = cycleway" and "motor_vehicle = no". So a routing program should NOT route motor vehicles on these trails.

Unfortunately, the Garmin compatible map (including my trail additions) downloaded from osmmaps.com to my Garmin Dakota 20 does exactly this, even though the Dakota routing is set to "on road for distance" and "routes for car/motorcycle".

Have I tagged incorrectly? Or is the Garmin simply unable to distinguish between a road and a trail?

You have tagged it correctly. The problem might be that the motor_vehicle=no tag does not get transferred to the garmin format. This is a bug in the way osmmaps.com makes the garmin map. Submit a bug report at osmmaps.com.
