[mkgmap-dev] [POI Categories Mismatch]

From Stéphane ALLEMANDI s.allemandi at soneva-sbh.com on Wed Dec 9 07:51:41 GMT 2009

Hi Stéphane,
>> I get some categorie mismatches between an OSM map and the result in Garmin.
>> For example, I define a point as a tourist office in JOSM and it appears 
>> as public toilets in the Garmin map.
>> The tourist office doesn't appear in the POI Menu of the Garmin, only on 
>> the map.
>> I've read on http://www.polkupyoraily.net/osm/ about correspondance 
>> trouble with the POI IDs :
>> - From the mkgmap source file resources/styles/default/points :
>> 	amenity=toilets & tourism=information [0x2f0c resolution 20]
>> 	tourism=information [0x2f0c resolution 20]
>> - On http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/OSM_Map_On_Garmin/POI_Types : 
>> 	I didn't find anything about a tourist office...
> On the POI types page, 0x2f0c (search for 0x0c in the section
> 0x2f (Auto services)) is documented to be listed in the following menus:
> Auto Services - All Categories
> Auto Services - Rest Area/Tourist Info 
> When I filled in the Edge 605/705 column on Monday, I also wrote down that
> the icon represents a man and woman (as in toilets).
> When I select the French menu language in my Edge 705, the
> Where To? - Find Places menu is called Où aller ? - Rechercher lieux,
> and 0x2f0c appears in the submenu Centers Auto - Aire de repos/information.
> I will document the discrepancy at http://www.polkupyoraily.net/osm/,
> noting that all tourism informations are displayed with a toilet symbol.
> I will also document that embassies will be listed under city halls.
> I welcome any other suggestions.  For now, I plan to only document the
> oddities in the POI mapping, not things that make sense (such as restaurants).
> Best regards,
> 	Marko

Thanks Marko.

But There is no way to resolve this trouble?
I don't know... Maybe change manually the POI type on the OSM side in 
order to match the Garmin Poi's type.
Does it seem possible?
