[mkgmap-dev] Garmin colour palette

I am not sure whether this is the correct ML for this posting, but I 
think it is not completely wrong.
I saw that the colour palette used in the online Typ file editor has too 
few and some wrong colours, almost for my Garmin Etrex Legend HCx.

So I extracted the colour palette of a Garmin waypoint icon and built a 
webpage that shows the correct colours (at least for my L:egend, I don't 
know whether it is the same for other Garmins with 265 colours, but I 
think so):

You can also download all the pages for offline use:

When you click on one colour you get a page completely coloured in this 
colour with the hex representation for better cutting and pasting it 
into the editor.
And also because a colour can better be judged when a big area is 
coloured. (A wall painted looks always different from the small sample 
in the shop ...)

Perhaps someone will find it useful.
