[mkgmap-dev] Misc documentation fixes

From Steph st3ph.martin at laposte.net on Tue Jun 16 11:12:14 BST 2020


Mkgmap maps work with QMapShack. Not for routing, searching a POI or an
address using a mkgmap map (QLandKarte was not able to do that).
But as a map layer it's pretty fun. You can combine it with other layers
as hillshape, contour lines or maps !
