I want to thank you for your efforts but I will buy the Garmin maps. On my nuvi, if I don't type the country, there is no "region", only "Search all". Since, besides your maps, I must leave the 1,5 Gigs maps of North America - otherwise, I get a "No map data available", - every search takes many minutes and I don't get a list of matches as I type.
So keep up your good work and good luck with the Open maps project.

So, you need to search addresses.
First, please notice that we don't (and won't) have house numbers therefore you can search for streets only. And of course, you won't find any streets what aren't there on our maps yet.
As I wrote before we don't have experience with nuvi; but I made some screenshots how street searching works on a 60csx. See them below.
Before trying on nuvi, please double check that all the layers you need are transferred to your gps. You should see Zagreb_areas, Zagreb_routes (and maybe Zagreb_contours and so on) on the Maps tab in MapSource before transmitting to gps if you've selected the map segment that contains Zagreb. The important (searchable) layers ends with "_routes". For making the proper selection this page may help you: http://openmaps.eu/layer_en (Uploading maps to GPS unit)
The base street search screen:

Croatia is the only region uploaded to gps:

Croatia 'region' and Zagreb city is selected:

I've typed an S and the gps showed a street list starting with S from Zagreb:

Found Savska Cesta:

Ok, I have loaded all the maps with most layers (OMP CE (Areas+Routes+BHL+THL+TM+BM). Since I can't change country on the nuvi, how do I find an address in Zagreb ? or Dubrovnik ?
Will I be able to get the information to go to any place in Croatia ?
Thank you

Ahh, now it's something new info. You have tried to search something.
Unfortunately, the map you've downloaded is not search capable. Garmin needs some additional index data besides the map data itself to search. The maps divided into countries are our "older" products and they do not support search.
Please, try using our newer products: so-called "layered" products. They aren't divided into countries so you can download whole central europe only from here:
http://openmaps.eu/rdl.php?id=LOMP-3Dimg-exe
http://openmaps.eu/rdl.php?id=LOMP-2Dimg-exe
They're support search and they have some nice feature (highlight signed trails, bicycle roads, etc).

I now have also tried with 2-D and it doesn't work either. In the Maps Info, I still see the Openmaps files and they are checked but Croatia is not known when I try to change country to type an address.
Thank you

I have installed the one in 3-D. Today, I tried many times to download the other one but the server didn't seem to work.

Hm, I don't have any experience with nuvi.
Let's try to solve step by step: what exe file have you installed?
This one: http://openmaps.eu/rdl.php?id=HR-3D-exe
or this one: http://openmaps.eu/rdl.php?id=HR-2D-exe ?

I have a Garmin nuvi 295W. I have downloaded the maps for Croatia, I have installed them with MapSource. On the GPS, in Map info, I see the initial CN North America... [1]US & Canada and also OpenMaps [1]Zagreb 3D, North Central Croatia... but I can't see the maps of Croatia, whether the OpenMaps is checked or not.
If only the OpenMaps is checked (I uncheck North Amarica), i get a "no map data available" if I try to type an address.
What can I do ? Thank you.
