> Does someone know how to use .osm files with tangoGPS ?
> Because lots of countries seem ready to be downloaded here :
you can't use the .osm file with tango
they are text files, that need to be processed by a renderer. there
are several of these used by osm, including osmarender, mapnik and
it is possible to download the .osm, install the renderer and generate
your own tiles, but last i looked it wasn't for the faint-hearted.
check out svn in the openstreetmap wiki for more info; at least the
first two listed above are GPL
> If it's not possible I think I will use osmtiles ;)
this will certainly be the easiest and quickest, although you get what
the renderer maintainer decides is important in the tiles
