[mkgmap-dev] POI index issues

From Brett Russell brussell237 at live.com.au on Mon Nov 11 01:11:57 GMT 2013

I have loaded my latest img made using 2800 of mkgmap and a custom style along with typ file on to a Garmin Rino 650.  This unit has only ever had the OSM maps that I have created on it.  The POI lookup has been causing me a few issues in the past with my 62S being much better but that might be due to it having Garmin's own Topo map loaded.  I am at a loss how and what index from what img file my Garmins use.
Anyway, the problem is nothing comes up when I select all POI so I went into geographical features and then water features to find a lake.  No water features showed up.  I then selected land features and then could find the lake that I was after.  It appears that at least on the Rino 650 the POI index has issues.  
It the above a known problem with mkgmap or is their something wrong with my style and/or typ file?  I use the following bat in Windows 7 to create the img.
