Hello fellas.

I'm the whole night looking for contour overlays or something to put contour lines over the OSM map, and after several tries, I gonna just give up and find some help here. :(

So the question is that simple, where can I find overlay transparent maps with contour lines for the OSM map for garmin devices (http://garmin.openstreetmap.nl/) and how do I use it as a overlay of my current map if that is even possible..

I saw some people scripting it out to put contour lines in the same .img (phyghtmap) mixing maps but the links were dead like almost every post I saw about this.. people tend to just download the map with the contour lines preinstalled. :mad:


*IF YOU DON'T KNOW HOW TO PUT CONTOUR LINES BUT TO SHADE THE ALTITUDE YOUR ANSWER WILL BE USEFULL TOO!


I also tried to use:

  1. https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Srtm2Osm
  2. https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/SRTM
  3. http://www.openfietsmap.nl/downloads/osm_combi

I saw this post which is asking almost the same as me but it have no answer (I hope this doesn't get unresolved too):

I got my contour lines from Freizeitkarte-osm.de, they are already prepared in OSM format. Use Mkgmap to add hill shading. See http://www.openfietsmap.nl/procedure

Yes I did, I used to use opentopomap but then I wanted to share my paths and roads so that's why I'm using OSM at the moment.
