Maps with Digital Elevation Model (DEM)

Information: a Digital Elevation Model is a file which contains information about land height in each point of the map. Garmin maps format can include a DEM, so that a hill shading like in the image below can be shown.

It is also possible with a DEM to see maps in 3D on BaseCamp and devices with such option (Oregon 600 for example).

Additionally, maps with DEM are able to calculate vertical profil of routes created in a computer or in a GPS device (if the model has such capability).

I've downloaded the Europe map with DEM. I installed it and can use it in Garmin Basecamp. However when I want to install (part of) a map to my device, Garmin Etrex I cannot select the Europe map as a source to select the parts of the total map that I would like to send to my device.

I can't do it from Basecamp and neither can do it by opening MapInstall seperately.

I have some older OSM based maps installed (2016 versions) on my D:// drive in a folder. I could only get the DEM map to show in Basecamp by installing it along the path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Garmin\BaseCamp\Maps To test things further, I installed Basecamp on my laptop completely fresh. It installs with a basic world map, which also installed in the program files directory as shown above. I then installed the Europe DEM map on the laptop, using the installer's default path: ...

Hi,
my edge explore (2018) performs miserable in precalculating elevation for a route. By miserable I mean it's at least 300% off.
Can I fix this by installing your DEM map or is it just the device?

Thanks!

Hi Alberto
It is in my TODO list, but most probably it will still take some weeks.

I'm tryng to install DEM map of Costa Rica. But also in this case I'm not be able to install.
The program install show me:

I don't change the directory but after the installation in this directory I'can't find anything.
Thank you for the answer that you will give me.
