You can now use that “Find Places” search window.

Choose your own style

A new map style is added in the installer. Big thanks to Rally for providing additional TYP styles. You can find in the c:\Program Files\OSM-PH Garmin maps\” these files:

  • OSMPH_RALLY_TYP_v2.6.exe

To load any of the map style, simply double-click either of the file and then open MapSource.


Different map styles rendered in QLandkarte GT. Default map style (right), OSM-PH Minimal (lower left), Rally’s map style (upper right).

That’s it! Enjoy! As we prepare for the next batch of improvements, please continue updating the map and report bugs. Happy GPSing!
