The city seems to be more or less correct now. The state/county 
information is still a bit on the weak side but a lot better. Strangely 
Vorarlberg and Tirol are often replaced with "Hall" which is a city. 
Maybe if unsure, addresses for several counties could be made up? This 
way if something is wrongly placed the chance to still find it gets 

Also the "country" is sometimes AT and sometimes AUT. I noticed that 
official garmin maps often have several records for the same country 
(e.g. Austria AT; Austria AUT; Oesterreich) - maybe it is possible to 
associate points/adresses with several countries or put up placeholders? 
I am using the --country-name= option but it seems not to be used for 
the index.

However - how are the cities determined?
Is this dependant on the POI stylefile? - If so please tell which 0x are 
used - or put up some documentation in which file in the source this is 

As for compatibility with GPS - I last tested with 1268 on GPS and it 
worked well - if I only sent one tile. When I sent whole of Austria I 
had problems finding "streets" far away from current position, while the 
street was found in Mapsource.

Hope my feedbacks contains something useful.
