OK, if that is the case I was thinking that the overlap might be
better as a percentage of the size of the area.  In areas where there
is a straight road that continues for miles and miles nodes might be
widely spaced, but that is unlikely in densely mapped areas.

The Garmin units have different sizes depending on direction
and latitude, but 2000 is over 4km(?) and that might be too
much in any circumstances.

That is an interesting area, as it appears that buildings are mapped
so there is a much higher node density than normal, but only the main
roads are there.
