An OpenStreetMap based map of Finland in Garmin Format

You can download here an OpenStreetMap of Finland in the format used by Garmin navigators. Read also OSM Map On Garmin/Download. Elsewhere, you can download a world map or desired parts of it.

Certain POIs can be found in somewhat unusual positions in the ‘Where To?Find Places’ menu of the Garmin Edge 705. The menu structure may vary between device models.

train stations TransportationGround Transportation
bus and tram stops and taxi stations TransportationTransit Service

The names of stations and stops may contain name, ID (ref), route IDs (ref of containing Relation:route, or route_ref) and one of the following special characters.

Code Description
- without shelter (shelter=no)
+ with a shelter (shelter=yes)
* with a lit shelter (shelter=yes, lit=yes)

The POI translations are defined in the mkgmap source file resources/styles/default/points. See also garmin_feature_list.csv and OSM Map On Garmin/POI Types.

Searching for addresses and intersections should work. Also address numbers are translated. It is not always necessary to input a city (or better, suburb or village) name.

Even you can refine and correct the map. Read more in the OpenStreetMap wiki, especially the Beginners’ guide, Editing and Map Features. Also visit the forum of Finnish OpenStreetMap users.
