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

Ahh, ok, that should be --series-name. The help says:
	This name will be displayed in MapSource in the map selection
	drop-down. The default is "OSM map".

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?

Hi Greg,

I am not sure what you want to achive. When you use the option --geonames-file in splitter
it adds location specific description options for each fie in the generated template.args:
mapname: 63240001
description: ET-Addis Ababa
input-file: 63240001.osm.gz

If you edit those lines before using it in mkgmap you probably get what you want.
Of course it makes no sense to do this each time when you run splitter, so I suggest to
keep the modified file and pass it to splitter with the --split-file.
While OSM data grows you have to repeat the process.
I see no easy way to automate that with a script.

Another option could be to modify the content of the cities file.

I am trying to label different maps for each state and the map name seems to be comming from cities15000.zip

Here is my splitter command:

java -Xmx1024m -Xms1024m -ea -jar \MKGMAP\splitter-r560\splitter-r560\splitter.jar --max-nodes=700000 --handle-element-version=keep --mapid="12380000" --geonames-file=\MKGMAP\cities15000.zip --description=OH-greg --max-areas="255" --no-trim --status-freq="600" ohio-latest.osm.pbf

Here is my mkgamp command:

java -ea -Xmx1024M -jar \MKGMAP\mkgmap-r3742\mkgmap-r3742\mkgmap.jar --gmapsupp --mapname=Ohio --description="OH_1-5THIN_BC" --latin1 --index --x-split-name-index --bounds=\MKGMAP\bounds.zip --location-autofill=bounds,is_in,nearest --housenumbers --overview-mapname=OH-ov --overview-mapnumber=12380000 --remove-ovm-work-files --style-file=\MKGMAP\BaseCamp-style\openmapchest --check-styles --family-id=665 --family-name="Ohio" --product-id=3 --series-name="OH_1-5THIN_BC" --area-name="My_maps" --min-size-polygon --route --drive-on=detect,right --check-roundabouts --check-roundabout-flares --remove-short-arcs --add-pois-to-areas --add-pois-to-lines --pois-to-areas-placement="entrance=main;entrance=yes;building=entrance" --generate-sea=extend-sea-sectors,multipolygon,floodblocker,close-gaps=6000 --make-poi-index --process-destination --process-exits --tdbfile --poi-address --verbose -c template.args master_thin.txt

I have used 'description' 'mapname' ' family name' 'series-name' I still cannot seem to get my maps to be labeled correctly.

In BaseCamp v4.6.2 the map is labeled "US-Mansfield" and on my Garmin Montana 600 it is also labeled "US-Mansfield"
