Hi Frank.

Try this utility: http://extract.bbbike.org/

Hopefully, your device supports one of the many formats available, and you
can limit the extent of the coverage to your area of interest (e.g Davao
region, instead of just Davao city, if your device supports it.)

I use the same site to create custom extracts for OsmAnd, which happens to
be my favorite navigation, routing, and POI editor while on the go.

Cheers,


*Erwin Olario*
