I don't have a server I can put it on, but I'm using Geofabrik's "Great Britain" extract, and this is the relevant line from the splitter: /-------- | 63240015: 2615296,-407552 to 2846720,102400 | # : 56.118164,-8.745117 to 61.083984,2.197266 \--------  <URL: http://download.geofabrik.de/osm/europe/great_britain.osm.bz2 > CG> Did mkgmap print a warning message "Non-closed coastline segment does CG> not hit bounding box: ..."? I didn't see any, but they may have been lost amongst a slew of "zero length arc" messages from the roads. I'm re-running the build, so I can throw grep at the logs. [time passes] No, definitely no occurrence of the word "coastline" in the output.

Obviously a landmass CG> with a non-closed boundary will be drowned by that approach :-) I would expect any non-closed coastlines to show up in OSM Inspector, and I'm not seeing anything there. I'm wondering how the closure of cut shorelines is done (having not yet looked at the code), and perhaps it is turning right instead of left for some reason?

As UK is a big CG> island, this should not be the cause of your problem, though. One big island and several hundred small islands, but yes, there's no coastline hitting the edge of the extract (Ireland is not included). Also, in passing, is it normal to have lots of little blue "threads" appear on the GPS display connecting the sea regions? I've not seen this with other multipolygons, so I'm wondering if this is also a symptom of problems.
