I'm looking for maps compatible with Garmin that cover India, specifically Kerala.
Could someone please point me in the right direction?
Thanks in advance

Top job, thanks guys
Choose generic routable as they are clearest on small screens.
Sorry to be a pain but I *think Ive downloaded the correct files but they are just a number - no extension. Am I looking for a specific extension of file?
You should have something like "gmapsupp.img"
There's a good step by step guide here: https://www.dcrainmaker.com/2013/05/download-garmin-705800810.html
Thanks guys, really appreciate it
Rename it before you put it on your device otherwise you may overwrite your existing basemap.
Call it anything.img
Needs to go directly in the garmin folder on your device or microsd if you have one.
Still struggling here as am only getting a .gmap file
where are you getting the file from???
I have requested the map for India
It is here http://osm.pleiades.uni-wuppertal.de/garmin/generic/06-01-2020/3bed98c5eb9d8a403d6d303d836f41b5/
download the file osm_generic_gmapsupp.zip
unzip it and you should get a gmappsup.img file
That's cracked it. I was downloading the wrong file.
Thanks so much, we have it 100 percent now.
Really appreciate you bearing with me. I owe you a beer
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
