Installation on a pc (Mapsource/Basecamp for Windows)
(Mac OSX users need to download OpenFietsMap(gmap).zip and install it with Garmin's MapInstall / MapManager for the Mac).
Unzip the files to a random place on your hard disk and run setup.exe. Make sure Mapsource and/or Basecamp is installed but not active. Previous versions will be uninstalled automatically. The map tiles will be extracted from the gmapsupp.img file: this file must be in the same folder as setup.exe
Double clicking on gmapsupp image file has no effect because Windows sees this as an CD image and wants to burn a CD.
If you have problems with the installation Javawa GMTK might help to find a solution.
Installation on a GPS:
Copy gmapsupp.img to a Garmin folder
on a micro SD card or the internal memory card from the GPS.
On newer GPS units the gmapsupp.img file can be renamed in order to install more mapsets on the memory card.
Installing on micro SD card is recommended to avoid booting problems in case of map errors.

Routing in Mapsource:
Vehicle:Bicycle, calculation shorter distance or faster time (cycleroutes preferred).
Routing preference for cycle routes: Use 'Avoid Toll roads'option or set the road selection slider to highways
Avoid unpaved: no routing on tracks, steps and unpaved (foot)paths, except gravel bike path. Also roads paved with cobblestones are avoided.
Vehicle:motorcar/motorcycle (suitable for racing bikes, velomobile). Routing on paved roads only, avoids unpaved tracks, paths or gravel bike paths. Not suitable for car navigation
Use Vehicle: Pedestrian to ignore oneway traffic. However, routing is often blocked by tileborders. Workaround: use toll road avoidance plus many via-points.
Routing in Basecamp (v3.3 or later)
Select actvity profile on Automotive or Bicycling (please note that this last option will avoid all unpaved roads)
Calculation: faster time (cycle routes) or shorter distance
Road type avoidance: Never avoid major highways because the cycleways are the major highways! Residential roads can be selected if the routing prefers too many footways/forest trails
Toll roads avoidance will route on bike routes only (NOT available in the cycling activitiy modes!)
Carpool avoidance: avoids unpaved roads, footways and steps (by default selected in the cycling activity modes!)
So if you dont want to avoid unpaved bike paths, select automotive profile (completely the opposite as in Mapsource!) and deselect carpoollanes avoidance
Routing on a GPS:
Make sure other routable maps on the device are switched OFF (except Basemaps)
Vehicle:Bicycle, calculation shorter distance. Shorter time will choose bike routes. Newest GPS units with activity profiles better use the automotive settings (see Basecamp 3.3)
Vehicle Car: longer route calculation, but only on paved roads (suitable for racing bikes, not suitable for car navigation). This setting is also recommended on the latest units / firmware
Don't avoid HIGHWAYS because the cycleroutes and cycleways are the main highways.
Pedestrian mode routes faster and over longer distances (>100km); ignores oneways (better in cities)
If routing via adress search doesn't work, routing via pointing on the map works maybe better.
Toll roads and unpaved see above
Carpool: avoids unpaved roads, footways and steps in newer GPS series (Etrex 10/20/30, latest firmware on other devices)
Address search is experimental. Some streets are only found if the place name is not specified. Entering a (random) house number is needed (depending on GPS unit) but searching for a specific house number or postal code is not possible.
If address search fails use the map and point to an address (address search fails if an adress is on a road where cycling is not allowed)
Cycling nodes: use City search or Other> Communication
Bike shops: Auto services->Auto repair
Steep hills (inclines): Other (Repair service)
