[mkgmap-dev] Changing the name of a garmin img map?

You probably use the template.args<http://template.args> from Splitter which overwrites the --description. Make sure to place options description and gmapsupp after the template file.

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.


(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

        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 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 ?
