Hi Dani,

Welcome to the club. I guess everyone will sooner or later realize that 
the Garmin software is crap but the hardware is reasonable. I sort of 
knew that before I got the Edge 705 in January 2009. I will jump ship as 
soon as someone produces something reasonably open that I can use when 
bicycling in any weather (including rain or winter), with a sturdy 
handlebar mount and cadence/heart rate sensors. I hope that my Edge 
won't die before that. :-)

I don't really agree on the furniture shops, though. In a big city, you 
may have furniture shops in the outskirts, and you might pick up a 
carpet or some decoration items when travelling.

Funny, I just mapped a somewhat similar site, http://www.visulahti.fi. I 
did not use tourism=resort, but tourism=camp_site, leisure=water_park, 
tourism=museum, tourism=artwork, amenity=restaurant, and the like.

Don't get me started on that. In the Edge 705, Units is translated to 
"Laitteet" (Devices) in Finnish. Power is translated to "voima" (force), 
and in the Finnish translations, a possible unit of altitude is miles (I 
guess it'd be feet).

There is one, which I was just about to commit:

+amenity=nursing_home [0x3002 resolution 21]

But 0x3002 is already crowded (hospitals, doctors, healthcare=* etc).  
Nursing homes are a form of lodging, so reusing the code of resort seems

During my stay in Lübeck back in 1994, someone sent a postcard from 
Bavaria to the student dormitory. The address line included 
"Deutschland", implying that Bavaria is not Germany. But OK, I will 
comply. :-)
