This Garmin map was made with data from © OpenStreetMap contributors and covers the area shown in the image to the left. This is a map for motorcyclists and therefore roads that should not be used by motorcyclists are shown as grey un-routable roads. These roads are typically toll roads and overpasses over major intersections and primarily located in Bangkok. This map uses the English name tags by default, if an English name is not present in the data the local name is converted to Latin characters. If you see a name that appears a bit garbled it is probably because it is the result of an automated conversion. OSM is free and not copyrighted with worldwide coverage. It is made and updated by it's users. Please use and distribute this map. If more people use OSM, more people will also in the end contribute to it. If you want to participate a good place to start is The OSM data, which is in a generic format, was converted into a Garmin map with the free mkgmap software. You can also download free worldwide Garmin maps from Lambertus.

Mapping bikers: OSM provides tagging to differentiate between the many scooter shops and shops that deal with offroad-, dualsport- and sportbikes, see motorcycle:type for info. These tags could be used to find shops that deals with a particular type of bike, like this for example: Offroad and Dualsport Shops, Sportbike Shops. There is also tagging for motorcycle friendly accommodation, see motorcycle_friendly for info. These tags could be used to find bikers accommodation, like this for example: Motorcycle Friendly Accommodation. Accommodations have their names suffixed with * for motorcycle customary and ** for motorcycle friendly on this GPS map. This way they can be identified on a GPS, not an ideal system for sure, but better than nothing. The already established brand tag is also very useful for finding shops: KTM, Husqvarna, Harley Davidson, Honda Big Wing, Suzuki Big Bike, Kawasaki Big Bike, Yamaha Square, Garmin, Shoei.

This map contains all updates made before 2020-06-04 (Updates Thurdays)

Garmin GPS

Download map suited for older GPS units. The roads are styled to resemble Basecamp style.

Download map suited for newer GPS units. The roads are not styled.

If your GPS has an Apps icon on the start screen it is a newer unit. Both versions work on all units, the difference is only cosmetic.

Save the map on your unit's memory card in a folder named garmin, this garmin folder must be in the root folder. If this folder does not exist you create it.

Older units can have two additional maps in your Garmin's \garmin folder in the internal memory. If you save two maps in the internal memory you save one as gmapprom.img and another as gmapsupp.img.

Newer units can have multiple maps saved on the memory card named as you like as long as the names are suffixed .img.
