[mkgmap-dev] How does cgpsmapper / cpreview work

Just as I don't want to post this in other threads as O.T. here seems to 
be the bext explications on how cpreview works (and why mkgmap maps are 
unsuitable for further processing to create an index using cpreview).


As you can read, cpreview needs an idx file created by cgpsmapper (and 
cgpsmapper needs properly prepared maps by gpsmapedit, it does not have 
any "intelligent" function to create an address search from scratch as 
does mkgmap). We cannot use cpreview on osm map data for address search.

The only thing I could image for testing is asking Malsingmaps authours 
or someone else if he could give us both a proper mp ready to be handled 
by cgpsmapper professional version, and the finished outcome. Maybe on 
could use mapcenter2 for this too ( if we had a proper mp to start with).
