You should have a look at the tools mdrdisplay, srtdisplay, noddisplay, 
... from the author of mkgmap. This tools are displaying the data of the 
subsections in more or less readable cleartext.
One of this tools (ExtractFiles) is capable of extracting the subfiles 
from the img.

Subversion archive of the java sources is at 

IIRC the tools are based on parts of the mkgmap code.
