How do you download free Open Street Maps (OSM) data on to an SD card for garmin edge 800 / 810 for use in navigation and turn by turn directions?

Unfortunately this won't be of help to you, anyone from the UK viewing this question can obtain free maps here: talkytoaster.info/ukmaps.htm –  Alan Shortis Feb 21 at 14:14

You can get map files that work on Garmin devices (I haven't tried with Edge) from this site. You can select predefined areas (countries, provinces) of the world you want, or create custom selections of just your area. They generate a map of your desired area and send you an email when its ready so you can download it.

Had anyone tried with this and verified that the map and turn by turn navigation actuall work with this map set? –  Benzo Feb 19 at 13:05
    
Haven't tried yet (maybe I will tonight if I have time), but the first set of radio buttons gives different options, one of which is "Routable Bicycle", which sounds quite promising. –  Kibbee Feb 19 at 13:42
    
Do these maps have POI? –  Benzo Feb 19 at 14:36
    
I can confirm that these maps have lots of POIs and navigation works fine on Garmin Oregon 300 device. Quality differs by region, as it is anywhere on OSM. –  Papuass Feb 19 at 15:49

Also worth saying that you can download several of these maps, and as long as you give the maps unique names on the micro SD, there's no problem with the device reading them (true for the Edge 800 at least). The map doesn't have to be called gmapsupp.img, you can have france.img, italy.img etc. if you wish –  PeteH Feb 23 at 14:34
