Betreff: [mkgmap-dev] Having 2 mkgmap-generated files on one device at once

Following on from the other question about setting the mapset name, the
other problem is just having both files on the device at once.

Both .img files were created using mkgmap using the --gmapsupp parameter.

I have an existing "gmapsupp.img", and I've renamed the new test one
that I am creating to "ajt2supp.img" and have also tried setting the
description of it via '--description="AJT2D" '. Setting the description
works, in that if that's the only mkgmap-generated map on the device
that's the description I see from the maps available from "select map".

However, if I have both the old "gmapsupp.img" and the new
"ajt2supp.img"on the device I only see "OSM Street Map" (the old
description), not "AJT2D".

I'm guessing it's some other name or perhaps the argument order that's
the problem.  I've tried other name settings such as --family-id=3
--product-id=44 --mapname=63240002 --product-version=2
--series-name="AJT2S" --family-name="AJT2F" --area-name="AJT2A", as well
as --description="AJT2D", but to no avail.
