I like the opentopomap's style of map. To get up to date maps on my Garmins i download from opentopo. Recently the Garmin.img file seems to be much smaller than the PC basecamp version and i cannot get it to work. I have got the PC version to display with Basecamp running on a Win10 PC but it won't export the map to my Oregon 650 either. Any ideas please? https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/OpenTopoMap and http://garmin.opentopomap.org/

If you don't need all of the UK, maybe a smaller extract from bbbike might tide you over? They list that style as an option.

I wonder if the failure to send to the device is tied to the failure to generate an appropriately sized composite file?

Thanks I am a walker, but I'll try it. as an alternative I have download Talky Toasters GB.img but it's not as recent as opentopo's offering.

Hi Andy, The newer basecamp versions 4.7.2 breaks the mapinstall feature to export maps form basecamp to your device. Instead You can download the .IMG Format version from opentopomap en copy it to your device SD card manually. I think basecamp 4.6.2 is the latest version which still works. If I remember correctly, it also has been fixed if you install the mapinstall update package. https://www8.garmin.com/support/download_details.jsp?id=3291

kind regards, Joris

Problem fixed. opentopomap have issued a new download and it now works. The file sizes are now of the size i would expect to see jpeg. thankyou for your help.

If you compare the size of the offered files in the question, you will see the problem.
