Hi Minko, I am sorry for this awfully late reply.

Garmin has also a line type 0x0d [Pedestrian >area] which is routable as well. Your suggestion of replacing the 0x06 with 0x0d makes sense, provided that it is routeable and does not imply bicycle=no. (In Finland, bicycling up to 20 km/h is allowed on pedestrian areas.) >a suggestion could be to change this into 0x0d or the same as footway, 0x16 How would you identify a footway? There is some path/cycleway/footway controversy and ambiguity going on. Something like this? highway=footway & bicycle=(yes|designated|permissive|official) [ 0x16 ] highway=footway [ 0x0d ] # other cases than the above highway=path & bicycle=no [ 0x0d ] highway=path & bicycle!=no [ 0x16 ] highway=cycleway [ 0x16 ] >In my custom styles I use type 0x0d for footways, paths, pedestrian >ways and they route fine >Line Type 0x16 can then be used for cycleways, which are now rendered >the same as footways in the default style. Right, it could be useful to distinguish cycleways (or foot-and-cycleways) from foot-only ways. >Other line types that are routable can be used as well to distinguish >more type of highways that are rendered the same in the default map: >0x0e 0x0f 0x10 0x11 0x12 0x13 > >Think about bridges, tunnels, steps etc I am a little reserved about this, but I agree that this could be useful with a TYP file. >Polygons: > >add landuse=grass to landuse=meadow >add natural=heath [0x20 resolution 20]? >add natural=sand | surface=sand to natural=beach According to http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Editing_OSM_Map_On_Garmin/Area_Types the 0x20 could work, but I would have to test it. There is no natural=beach in the default style. What did you have in mind? >I wrote earlier about a proposal to put some kind of standard TYP file >to the default styles. The Mapnik ones from Lionel aka Petrovsk are >suitable for this and he already give his permission to enhance it. >Maybe this can be worked out and translated it into German, English etc I can help with a Finnish translation. How would this TYP file be maintained? Is there some editable (text) format and an editor that is free software? Quite a while back, I was toying with the idea of composing a TYP file from an assembler source file, but I never got around to completing it. Best regards, Marko
