Would you propose using the Mapnik.TYP file? I share Charlie Ferrero's 
concerns about the spaghetti appearance. Being an owner of an 'old' unit 
(Edge 705) I would prefer a plain drawing style that omits any borders 
around ways.

Where can I access the Mapnik drawing rules?

I tested the line types 0xe..0x13, and all seem indeed routable in the 
Edge 705. Just like the 0xd, all display as a thin black line and carry 
the default label 'Line'.

If the 0xd works like this on all units, I would translate cycleways to 
it in the default style. The current 0x16 (brown dashed line) would be 
for footways and paths that are not (primarily or at all) for bicycling.

Best regards,
