[mkgmap-dev] DEM file and the block-size option

Andrzej, Steve,

not sure what to do here. I agree that 2048 looks like a good default, at least for DEM tiles.

Hi Gerd,

For small img yes. For bigger img larger block-size results in smaller
img size, since FAT contains less records and is smaller. I think you
simply could set block-size 2048 as default.
