I successfully installed OSM to my Extrex Vista HCx (I downloaded gmapsupp.img), but there are some roads/paths I can not see on the GPS, although they are visible on the PC (QLandkarte). I changed settings to Most Details and zoomed to the maximum, but still no path. Example: a location on a path not in the GPS: N52° 03.699 E005° 57.033 (Netherlands) I also tried Openmtbmap, with the same result.

Any suggestions?

Whereabouts did you download the gmapsupp.img from?

Depending on what options the person that made that file selected (and there are lots of people doing this, and no "official" ones) you may very well see some features and not others.

Also, would it be possible to provide a permalink to the area where you're seeing the problem, like this:

or a link to an actual road that you can't see, like this:

(those links are just examples of course)

It could be that the missing bits were drawn in more recently than when the gmapsupp was built, it is possible to look at dates to find out. to edit my quick answer, I use for my GB maps and his latest edition is 11-07-22(YMD) and as its now the 30th July there is also the time taken for edits to be added to the render data that was then used to build a gmapsupp.img . (note gmapsupp.img is the only name and type of file that many map garmins can display) there's more on wiki as well.
