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

From greg crago gregcrago at gmail.com on Tue Jan 10 16:11:04 GMT 2017

I want to make sure I understand how the ORDER of the OPTIONS are to used.
I was using the "options.txt" file to determine the order of the options.
Is that correct?

Why exactly did you recommend putting the --description AFTER the -c
template.args option?

Can you add a note to "options.txt" and using SPLTTER (template.args)
OVERWRITES --mapname, --description, and --input-file?

I have --area-name and I cannot see it anywhere in BaseCamp or my GPS.
I used --x-mapeset-name=blabla and I cannot see it anywhere in BaseCamp or
my GPS.
