[mkgmap-dev] Changing the name of a garmin img map?From Hadmut Danisch hadmut at danisch.de on Sun Sep 16 20:22:08 BST 2018
Hi, I'm not sure whether this is an issue about options or their documentions. I'm using mkgmap to generate maps from openstreetmap for a garmin etrex. Although I am using all possible options as described in the --help=options output to set names, i.e. --description=... --country-name= --country-abbr= --region-name= --region-abbr= --area-name= --series-name= --family-name= (with option values, of course), but the map name contained in the file header and displayed in the etrex is still some generated by mkgmap and build from a 2-character County code and the first major city it finds, e.g. MV-Male for Maldives. As I do understand the --help=options output, the options listed above should change this name, as the help text says --family-name=name If you build several maps, this option describes the family name of all of your maps. Garmin will display this in the map selection screen. Example: --family-name="OpenStreetmap mkgmap XL 2019" --area-name=name Area name is displayed on Garmin units (or at least on eTrex) as the second part of the mapname in the list of the individual maps. Although I use this options, e.g. to call a map something like „Maldives”, it still shows this „MV-Male” (or „AE-Dubai” and so on). How can I change this name ? regards Hadmut
