...just found the Problem:

My build Process (for a multi-layer map) includes setting the main
layer (roads, POI) to transparent using gmt.exe because mkgmap somehow
doesn't  manage to make this singe layer transparent.
gmt.exe seems to kill the road-searching information in this layer's
When I then compile all gmapsupp.img files into one with mkgmap, its
not included...

Did someone else also experience this transparency problem?

Maybe we'll have some more elegant way of creating multi-layered maps
with mkgmap at some point in the future.
