[mkgmap-dev] What's the meaning of the 'has no region' warnings?

Hi Thorsten,

If I got that right we are talking about two different things.
The code that handles the exit:to and similar variables would stay,
means, the possibility to add infos to an exit node would still
work although nobody seems to use it.
I am talking about the code that adds the exit nodes to special
sections in the index and LBL file (e.g. LBL9  + LBL10).
I think that this info in the img and the corresponding code is obsolete.

My problem: The talks in year 2009 / 2010 suggest that it was possible to search 
for exits at that time but that the search always used the basemap that came with
the device. One possible explanation for the - now missing  - search  is that the 
Garmin software was faulty and that Garmin simply removed the option 
instead of fixing it. Or maybe it comes only with specific devices or with special
maps ?
