[mkgmap-dev] Problems with -- gmapi (and possibly --gmapsupp also)

Hi Patrik,

I did not yet try to reproduce the problem. What jumps into my mind first is that the previously computed overview map is not found with
the argument 6442*.img. Or maybe you have to specify option --tdbfile to get an overview map.

If that doesn't help please post also the 1st command.

I've just noticed that the quite new option --gmapi does not work properly regarding overview maps:
- I first build the img files where all is correct, overview maps are properly built and set at the different needed locations (*.tdb file, elsewhere ?)
- running mkgmap with the option --gmapi (complete output shown below) causes that the overview maps are not anymore shown in BaseCamp

I've tried different versions of options but I do not get the overview maps working with --gmapi.

BTW: Something similar happens probably with --gmapsupp: there are now overview maps visible on the GPS itself.

Here the call of mkgmap and its output:

Am I doing something wrong or is this a 'defect' in the newly implemented gmapi option ?

Thanks for helping
