Agreed. The default is close to that - what a 'normal' user would want. > I must say that I have not played with other styles than the default. > Is it possible to include the definitions of another style by reference > and override them?

There seems to be perl code to run as cgi that does text/typ, so it should be possible to turn this into something that can checked in and part of the build, or of mkgmap. Long term, it would be cool to have a design for a joint style file and TYP file that maps OSM objects to codepoints beyond what base garmin can do and then makes those codepoints show up sensibly with a TYP file. This is currently beyond what I grasp. -------------- next part -------------- A non-text attachment was scrubbed...
