[mkgmap-dev] TYP compiler problems

Hi Ticker

That is correct: 32x32

Even though the typ files includes the xpm with each bitgmap polygon, I 
have a suspicion

that the firmware ignores these settings and sets the dimensions to 
32x32 by default

This certainly explains the gobbledygook you got.

I have yet to see a typ file which allows 16x16 for polygons

I have no idea if the TYP compiler sets the dimensions to 32x32 by default.
