+1. While I have gone a little inactive, mkgmap is still useful. The USB 
data transfers on my Edge 705 died some years ago, so I cannot use it 
for mapping. (But I do not update OSM that much either, given that it 
already is good enough for me.) I have been using OsmAnd on a 
smartphone. In some ways, the old Garmin is still better.

Me too. It would be nice to have properly shaped polygon around the map 
of Finland that I still update every now and then.
