I've completed the revamp to my styles.

There are two:

1) CF_GPS is designed to work with old GPS units (such as mine, the 
GPSMap76csx) which do not display roads with borders properly

2) CF_Mapsource is much prettier and I use it in Mapsource.  People with 
more modern GPS units may find it looks good on those too

Both styles are identical except for the lines file.

3) Both styles work with the same TYP file (but use different parts of it):

Obviously the family ID of the TYP file must be altered to match that of 
the maps it is applied to.

The styles create routeable, single layer maps, with variable road 
thicknesses depending on zoom.

Screenshots of the CF_Mapsource style in action are here:
