[mkgmap-dev] How to label maps generated by mkgmap -r3742

From greg crago gregcrago at gmail.com on Sat Jan 7 14:15:14 GMT 2017

I understand that --geonames labels individual map tiles with the largest
city name in 'cities15000.zip'.

I am trying to generate a gmap for each state in the USA. The example I
gave was for the state of OHIO. The generated gmap file, when opened in
BaseCamp and my Garmin Montana 600, has the label "US-Mansfield" instead of
"OH" or one of the other labels I was trying to associate with this gmap of
OHIO. It is very confusing because I am generating about 10 states, and
each one has a label that seems to be extracted from the cities15000.zip.

How do I control the text I see in BaseCamp or on a Garmin GPS when I look
at the list of installed gmaps?
