[mkgmap-dev] Garmin Marine Devices

From RheinSkipper rheinskipper1000 at gmx.de on Sun Mar 4 09:59:14 GMT 2012

Dear developers,


there was a discussion about changing the header of the img files in a way
they will load on a newer Garmin marine device (e.g. GPSMap 4xx, 5xx):



As a workaround, a tool called Marinator can patch the img files for making
them usable on newer marine devices:



Having to use this tool, there is no way to produce a gmapsupp that works on
marine devices directly with mkgmap. You will always have to create a
MapSource version, patch the imgs and then create a gmapsupp. This makes it
impossible to produce marine maps automatically under linux.


Is there a chance to modify mkgmap in a way the maps do not have to be
patched anymore?
