Will Cycle Travel work with the above?
cycle.travel uses openstreetmap data. What do you mean "work with"?
We use the maps from Garmin of Northern Europe. But looking at downloading OSM maps to a micro SD card and using these. I understand that they have more detail.
I use a Garmin 810 and have only ever used osm and I plan the vast majority of my routes using cycle.travel on a desktop PC, download a .gpx file than manually add it to the newfiles folder on the microSD card on my Garmin. I used the method described here https://www.dcrainmaker.com/2013/05/download-garmin-705800810.html
As far as I can tell, the occasional hissyfits my garmin throws are no more or less than on devices running the Garmin proprietary maps.
I can't comment about the relative levels of detail, however I find the OSM perfectly fit for purpose. I have planned and ridden a few thousands of miles with cycle.travel when running OSM.
Thanks. I tried by picking Estonia. The file/map arrived in my email. I downloaded it but could not uncompress it. We think we may not have enough space on our computer. I tried doing it on my Android tablet but no go.
Indeed – the maps that come built into many Garmins are now made from OpenStreetMap data (just, as mjray says, as cycle.travel is), in Europe at least.
A cycle.travel-planned route will work fine if you have an OSM map loaded into your Garmin.
