Europe (2014)

  • Openfietsmap Europe is divided into three areas: East/West/North.
  • For every area there is a version for the PC (Mapsource/Basecamp for Windows, Mac OSX, Linux OS) and a GPS version (gmapsupp.img) for Garmin GPS devices.
  • The pc versions have their own ID and it is recommended to store and install each area in a different directory.
  • You can combine the three areas with a separate installer, see the installation instructions below.
  • To put multiple areas on a gps, rename the gmapsupp.img (e.g. ofm_2014e.img, fm_2014w.img and ofm_2014n.img) and store the files in the same garmin folder on micro SD card (16 Gb is needed for all areas). Please note that older gps units only support one gmapsupp.img mapset!
  • The GPS versions can also be used on Android smartphones/tablets with the Oruxmaps app. Other dedicated GPS devices (Mio, Teasi, Bryton, TomTom etc) are NOT supported!
  • Use a download manager to accelerate the download speed
  • If this all sounds too complicated, you can buy ready-to-use maps on SD-card

Instructions for installation

Pc version (Windows installer)
  1. Unpack the OFM(EU2014_x).zip file to a location of your choice, e.g. C:\Garmin\Maps\OFM(EU2014_x). If extracting doesn't work, try
  2. Existing maps from previous EU versions have different ID's so no need to remove them (unless you need disk space)
  3. Run Install_OFM_EU2014_x.exe to install each mapset into the registry of Basecamp/Mapsource (this takes only a few seconds). Depending on your windows configuration, you need to right-click install.exe and run as Administrator.
  4. You can safely move the map later to another location and run install.exe again to update Mapsource's register.
  5. Make a combination of all three sections (optional, for experienced users): Download and unpack to an emtpy folder, copy 1014*.img files from ALL 3 mapsets here and run the install.exe. See the instruction in the readme file. Mac users have to use Javawa's Mapconverter, see below.
  6. Read the tips & tricks section how to use the maps
Mac OSX (gmap format):
  1. Install and run Javawa's Mapconverter to convert and install the zip file.
  2. Just drag and drop the zip file on this tool is all. Also compatible for Windows users.
  3. Please note that this procedure needs at least twice of free disk space!
  4. Read the tips & tricks section how to use the maps

GPS version:

Unpack OFM(EU2014_x_GPS).zip and copy the garmin folder with gmapsupp.img on a (micro) SD-card
  • On most modern GPS units you can rename gmapsupp.img to a different filename.img in order to use more mapsets
  • You can view the gps mapsets with Basecamp (with a SD card reader or GPS connected to the pc)
