  • Create custom map including strava heatmap layer


    I do a lot of MTB and I like to explore new routes. To do so, i've been using combination of strava route planner + to export the route on my vivoactive HR.

    Now I would like to invest on a garmin edge 820 because in MTB it is sometime tricky to follow a route using a watch, especially on technical paths, when you absolutely need to keep your hands on handlebar. I've seen that you can import custom map in edge 820. So my question is : can we create a custom map including the strava global heatmap in order to have it on the edge 820 while riding? It could be usefull for example when you did not plan a route and want to discover "live".

    As starting point, I downloaded JOSM ans succesfully imported the HD heatmap layer based on TMS server, but now the process is quite unclear to me to generate a map. Does anybody know the process to do so?

    Thanks !
