> Hi Gerd,
> I have compiled map of Poland using r3942, search looks OK in nuvi 1440,

> > The Nüvi2447 seems to work fine with maps created with --latin1 (also

> I have never seen that kind of message. I would expect something like

> Unicode, for example 23xx, 24xx, 34xx, 35xx.
> > Don't know if I should contact Garmin ?
> Would be nice to get support for mkgmap from Garmin ;)
> I think you can find developers on Garmin forum:

> I don't know how helpful they could be in case of problems caused by
> non-Garmin map.
