Are you aware that there are various alternatives to garmin.openstreetmap.nl? See https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/OSM_Map_On_Garmin/Download

Unfortunately people usually in the loop have not been able to communicate with the garmin.openstreetmap.nl operator for a long time. The webpage itself mentions there's an issue and maps are dated back in June 2020 for the last update. I have used it as motivation to get back to trying to generate maps myself (having moderate success but still working through learning issues). There are other sites where different maps can are generated and available for download. https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/OSM_Map_On_Garmin/Download has many sites that can be reviewed to see if they have content you can make use of.

Thank you for replying Hendrik I'll try again... I downloaded all the individual country maps ( France, Spain, Swiss etc) from garmin.openstreetmap.nl back in May 2020

I have RE-downloaded all the same maps from the same site a couple of weeks back ( late April 2021) - then compared to those I downloaded a year ago found that they ALL are the same size in bytes and show the same date 20th June 2020 which leads me to believe the maps were compiled a year ago and have not been updated. And this is why I ask, as I cannot find anyway to email the site owner, if anyone knew if that site had effectively been 'abandonned' or at least the updating of it. If anyone know the email of the site owner, please do either tell me so that I may write or could you send him/her a mail to alert him/her of my post here???? to ask the question: will there be updates to the mapping available on www.garmin.openstreetmap.nl ? thank you

Hi En3route, did you take a look here ? https://www.openstreetmap.nl/content/kaartmateriaal.html What do you mean by 'the same size' ? Did you match both images to be alike ? Or better whats the size or subject of the selected map, country, provence, city or region ?
