Hello, I often download small maps from specific regions in Switzerland. I can only download small regions, since my Garmin device can only handle small files. Up to some time ago, this worked fine on garmin.openstreetmap.nl, but since a while it says: "Sorry, due to server problems only country maps are currently available. You may need to refresh the browser cache first (CTRL-F5)." This message is there for a long time and I still cannot download regional maps. Does anyone have a solution? Are there other ways to download regional / cantonal maps from Switzerland? Many thanks! Bas

That site is broken and has been so for some time. I suggest that you use a different download site. Have a look here.

Hello SomeoneElse, thanks for your reply, but the links in your site also only provide for country maps, and I really need a regional map for my Garmin 520, otherwise the datastorage is full... Any other tips perhaps? Is it easy to create a split map myself from a country map?

Garmin Basecamp should solve the issue,it is available as a free download. BC will allow you to export a section of a Garmin map to your Garmin device. Most OSM on Garmin map downloads can be used with Garmin Basecamp on a Windows PC and maybe a Mac. Opentopomap have a a Win pc version as well as a Garmin one http://garmin.opentopomap.org/ Here's a link for Basecamp https://www.garmin.com/en-GB/software/basecamp/ Note: If Garmin offer to update your firmware do NOT accept, some users have suggested that third party maps, such as OSM may not work on the device if you up-date the firmware.
