[mkgmap-dev] Country unification in address search

From Felix Hartmann extremecarver at gmail.com on Thu Nov 12 20:43:01 GMT 2015

okay - I just tried out lambertus generic map (
http://garmin.openstreetmap.nl/ ) - AFAIK it's fully default style - but
for that map it seems to work more or less. More or less because it only
finds AUT and Austria (AUT). Under AUT every address is found twice - under
Austria (AUT) every address is found once only. I don't know.
So maybe this is due to the bounds file? I'm not sure what Lambertus is
using for bounds.

I would guess this can be fixed either in the bounds file creation - or in
the map creation itself.

I will try to find some more myself. But for my understanding such
countries should not even be selectable. The fact that such bogus countries
are selectable - must mean that some objects are found for them - doesn't
I will check up for Canada - as that's where I got twice an error report by
a user.

At least for single country maps - maybe there could be an option to
hardcode the country via command line options?
