Not to stir up any discussion, but Mapsource >6.13.7 is full of crap and 
faults. The worst the scale being completly wrong in the north/south 
direction, so 1km to the north on the map does not equal 1km to the 
south. Even with cache bloody slow and graphics that at first view look 
a bit more pleasant, but the more you work with it the worse they look. 
Also many possibilities to display things that work on all Garmin units 
with typfile support as well as Mapsource <=6.13.7  don't show up 
anymore, so the map display is really different from GPS. The biggest 
being that if you use overlays for lines they will allways be drawn in 
the middle of the line, independent of what you put into your typfile. 
The only advantage is that maps without typfile will look better and 
have some advantages (which go away once you define objects in typfile).

Impossible therefore to check whether a change you made in mkgmap will 
show up on GPS too!!!!, With Mapsource 6.13.7 you could be pretty save.
