Alternative maps
« on: September 28, 2018, 16:39:16 »
Who is using here "alternative maps" as OSM (open street maps) in his device ?

which one have you choose and why?

Do you use only alternative or mix with manufacturer (Garmin, tom-tom ...) ones ?

I've tried an OSM DEM for my last off-road trip, and I must admit I have not found any best things, a lot of informations (too much...)

On the device (Zumo) it's something like this (haven't done screenshot in navigation configuration, but looks like the base camp screen shot ...  :( )



instead of



and on Base camp





So what are your experiences, with which declination, and interest compared to original  VCIF_ok  VCIF_salut

I tried OSM but original Garmin is better.

In Turkey I used local Topographic maps for off-road :D

I'm using maps http://www.freizeitkarte-osm.de/garmin/en/index.html -for me very good, tested on Balkans, North, Poland. CNE is only better for find adress, but I use only preloaded routs prepared on comp.

Tried the "Freizeitkarte" this WE on our last Off-Road trip ... I have to admit for instance it is not the panacea ... Yes a lot of information (too much ?  : not sure I need to know if I'm in forest, park, uncultivated land or vineyard : think I can see it; yes can be some interesting symbols as rocks ...) No more speed limitation on roads (yes not interesting riding off-road  :D ); and we have some deals off-road comparing with garmin's ... some tracks existing on one and not the other , and vice-versa; have to explore this area later  :D
Sure i will continue to ride both maps for instance; but not convinced one is best then the other  ...
