[mkgmap-dev] EE characters in Garmin

Hi Darek,

When mkgmap reads the command file (like template.args) it expects utf-8.

I think Garmin only uses latin-1 characters in the fields for description, map name etc, but I am not sure about this.
Did you already try it?

Betreff: [mkgmap-dev] EE characters in Garmin

Is it possible to display characters from Eastern Europe  code page in Garmin unit (Oregon 650) which are in description fields (e.g. "description", "region-name" ...) in "template.args"?
In which code page should be this file (utf-8,1250) and which parameter "code-page" ?
Best Regards
