Good ideas are also welcome!

There is only one class that handles multipolygons: 

Can you describe your issues?

Mmh, don't know.

As far as I know two things might be relevant for this:

1. mkgmap converts all coordinates to an internal format which is also 
used by Garmin (?). This internal format only has a limited resolution. 
I don't know exactly but sometimes this has only a resolution of some 
meters, which is not very exact. Have a look a the Coord class and the 
Utils.toMapUnit(..) function. Maybe someone else could explain better?

2. There are different filters which removes unneccessary nodes from 
lines etc. Have a look at the package uk.me.parabola.mkgmap.filters.
