Hi Steve,

thanks for testing. Please report anything that is different to the trunk version, also if it is better.

Hi Gerd,

I have compiled map of Poland using r3942, search looks OK in nuvi 1440, but we don't have characters like 'Æ' or 'ß', so I probably can't test your problem. I'm downloading data for Europe, will compile and test it later.

The only glitch I have noticed is in Mapsource. It looks like index doesn't contain references to last word of street name. For example, there are streets "Marszałka Ferdynanda Focha" and "Aleja Grunwaldzka". I can search for "Ferdynanda Focha" but not for "Focha" alone. I can search for "Grunwaldzka", which exist in another location, but I won't find "Aleja Grunwaldzka" with that search. This isn't new, the same behavior show my older maps.

Maybe there is something wrong with SRT? I have uploaded samples of original SRT, you can compare with srt from mkgmap:

Garmin uses 2 types of CP1252, I think one of differences is that "Western European2 Sort" expands 'Æ'.

You can check srt files, that comes with cgpsmapper too, there is file "sort.img" in cGPSmapper distribution, which contains multiple srt subfiles.

I have never seen that kind of message. I would expect something like "can't authenticate map", which means that Garmin doesn't want you to use free Unicode maps in this device. You would need a bit older model to test Unicode, for example 23xx, 24xx, 34xx, 35xx.

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.
