(from my point of view ;-))) You have to write your own BoundaryPreparer. All you have to do is 1. Load your data 2. For each boundary create a Boundary object. For a Boundary object you need: 1. The shape (as java.awt.geom.Area object) with Garmin coordinates 2. The OSM tags 3. Save each Boundary using the BoundarySaver.addBoundary method. 4. Call BoundarySaver.end() => That's it You receive extra points when you call BoundaryPreparer.workoutBoundaryRelations(boundsDirectory); after that :-) WanMil
