I used to edit open street maps and download often but then we could only select a very large map with makes my GPS so slow its almost unusable so I haven’t updated for a long time.  I have been trying again and can’t download at all.

Can someone please tell me where to go to select and download an up to date map, preferably of only Davao city and surrounding area.

Many thanks


Frank Woolf
