SOLVED: Download for Garmin Oregon 450?

I just tried to download OpenSeaMaps for my Garmin Oregon 450.

I tried both methods suggested on http://www.openseamap.org/index.php?id=kartendownload (sorry, this is in German)

The OpenSeaMap_EuCentralWest.zip downloaded from https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/ … G1OYkZrTjQ does not work at all on my Garmin Oregon, I don't see anything when I deactivate everything but this map on the device.

I then tried http://extract.bbbike.org/?format=garmin-oseam.zip. That's better - I do see something, but colors are awfull. Water is brown, for instance, rather than blue like I would expect.

I remember I dowloaded OpenSeaMaps for the Baltic Sea about a year ago and it worked great. But I don't remember where an how I did that.

Where / how can I download usable OpenSeaMaps parts for my Garmin Oregon 450?

I found the problem - OpenSeaMap_EuCentralWest actually only covers Great Britain plus a bit of Ireland and a smal strip of the French coast approx. up to Calais. That's it. No Belgium, nothing from the Netherlands.

After trying OpenSeaMap_EuCentral everything works as expected.

I really appreciate the efforts people put into providing these maps. It would be even better if there would be some coverage information available rather than just posting a few files on Google drive.
