Garmin OSM and Birdseye Layering

Recommended Posts

This may be a bit of a noobie question, but I have downloaded several Birdseye areas for my location, and I have the OSM map for the state.   In BaseCamp I can see the OSM streets on top of the Birdseye images.

 

Is there a way to get it to display in the same way on my Oregon 700?  I can't seem to find any settings for draw order or layering.

 

Thanks!

Enable both the OSM map and BirdsEye maps on the Oregon 7x0 in Setup > Map > Configure Maps 

 

The specific workflow is illustrated at GPSrChive > Oregon 7x0 > Maps > Garmin BirdsEye Maps > Garmin BirdsEye Tutorial

I had downloaded the OSM files and then used the OSM Combiner on them.  It appears that the combine failed.  When I enable the combined map, even with Birdseye off, nothing is showing.  Thanks for the point in the right direction.  I think I will just send the original OSM maps to my garmin.  I doubt I will need that many at a time, so it shouldn't really be an issue.

Not sure what you combined, but you should load your OSM and BirdsEye maps separately, as they do not even reside in the same directory.

I combined three different state OSM maps.

Finally got it working.  Installing the .exe files into basecamp and then transferring them to the GPSr using basecamp was not working at all.  I instead downloaded the .img and copied them to the device manually.  I am finally seeing the roads and the Birdseye imagery with no issues.  Thanks for the help!
