I went to this wikilinked page http://ulrichkuester.de/OSM/CoordinateToOSMTile.html I picked my 4 tiles using the directions and I get this information at the bottom of the page. OSM Tile Numbers sendmap20 -l 63278643.img 63278642.img 63278823.img 63278822.img

Now, I can not figure out how to get the tiles to download?

That page is for downloading tiles from ComputerTeddy's maps. You can download them from one of the servers listed on this page: ComputeTeddy Downloads.

Specifically, try this website http://ftp5.gwdg.de/pub/misc/openstreetmap/teddynetz.de/latest/img/ The tiles are in directories depending on the first part of the tile number.

Or you could try using this webpage: Garmin image tile calculator. Pick the area you want on the map, then it will generate a list of URLs for the tiles you need to download (also from ComputerTeddy's maps).

Or depending on what sort of maps you want, and what part of the world, there are a range of other OSM Garmin maps available. Some of them might be easier to download and install. See the list at OSM Map On Garmin/Download.

Here is what worked for me. 1. Go to to this wiki page http://ulrichkuester.de/OSM/CoordinateToOSMTile.html and follow the directions to pick your tiles. 2. Copy this line of code ”sendmap20 -l 63274155.img 63274154.img 63274335.img 63274334.img 63274515.img 63274514.img” (which is at the bottom of the page) 3. Go to this site this website http://ftp5.gwdg.de/pub/misc/openstreetmap/teddynetz.de/latest/img/ The tiles are in directories depending on the first part of the tile number. You need to find the folder that matches the first 6 numbers- open the folder and download the “tiles” 4. Download the sendmap program. 5. Create a file folder for your expanded maps (I used winrar) 6. Expand the tiles in the folder- include the sendmap program in the new location 7. Open a command Prompt window 8. C:folderfolder etc>cd “Map Folder” 9. Now paste in the sendmap code and wait 10. You might want to rename your gmapsupp.img" file to something meaningful. 11. Now when I put the new maps into my gps-drag to sd card- sometimes I needed to use a 8#name like 12345678.img.
