    Open Street Map Philippines - Garmin compatible map

    "OpenStreetMap is a project aimed squarely at creating and providing free geographic data such as street maps to anyone who wants them. The project was started because most maps you think of as free actually have legal or technical restrictions on their use, holding back people from using them in creative, productive or unexpected ways.

    OpenStreetMap has created an online editing interface to allow anyone to contribute to the map. The editor allows you to upload, share and trace your GPS tracks on top of free aerial and satellite imagery. The data created can then be used for free in lots of different ways that often aren't possible with commercial mapping."

    The FREE Garmin compatible map can be found HERE

    I wouldn't know

    Since I found OSMPH, I don't give a crap for roadguide.

    I loaded the latest OSM map on my Nuvi 1300. I can't use address search. Is it just me or has anyone else experienced this? In the other thread ( Roadguide 1.24 mapsource) there was a similar problem, and someone was able to enable the address search. Can it also be done with the OSM?

    Thanks everyone for this forum!

    Sadly, the address search for OSM maps doesn't work. However, I find it more detailed than the latest roadguideph map. I keep both maps on my unit, using OSM as my
    primary map then switching to roadguide if I need address search

    Roadguide.ph (contributor version v1.25) beats OSM for me especially when it comes to routing.

    RoadGuide has more coverage but not necessarily better coverage. You can compare the RoadGuide demo map with OSM to actually see for yourself in the locations that matter to you. I think it's worth it to aim to get the RG Contributor's map but OSM is a viable tandem map to use.

    Here's a somewhat dated comparison of OSM vs. RoadGuide (v1.21) in several places where OSM shines to show that RG does not have a monopoly of better GPS maps: vaes9: Is RoadGuide.ph Really Better Than OpenStreetMap?
