[mkgmap-dev] EE characters in Garmin

From d.kwapisz at onet.eu d.kwapisz at onet.eu on Sun Oct 1 17:16:38 BST 2017

Hi Gerd,
In my estimation my file is in utf-8, but when in file are national characters (Ł: U+0141, utf8 C581; ó: U+00F3,utf8 C3B3;ź: U+017A.,utf8 C5BA) mkgmap report an error (I attach 2 file - one with arguments  and second with command line and error message)
Best Regards

>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" ?
