OSM Map On Magellan

This page provides information on how to use OSM data with Magellan GPS units. Currently the map format of the devices is very good understood for simple raster maps. Support for Vector maps is intermediate (no routing, ...) with Open Source software, but there is a full featured commercial SDK by Magellan for creating maps. And you can also install third party navigation software (iGO, CityGuide, Navitel, 7ways, etc.) on touch-screen models (Triton 1500, 2000, eXplorist 510, 610,710) using microSD memory card and "tritonmod" or "eXmod" launcher.

Raster maps

Raster maps just include the images of the map. So zooming will reduce quality and you can't do any routing. The only step to do is, to embeds OSM prerendered tiles in the Magellan specific map package format.
