[mkgmap-dev] Wondering about mkgmap usage.

Dear Marco,

Typ files allow you to customize the look of your map.  Think of it as
different cartographic design in the main OSM map (mapnik, osmarender,
cyclemaps).  Many mkgmap users use different typ files depending on
the map purpose (road, cycling hiking, etc).

A good howto and explanation here:

If no typ file is included in the mkgmap parameters.  It will default
on garmin's map design.
