[mkgmap-dev] garmin zumo XT

I took a look at those, thx.     Unfortunately they don't really tell 
you what feature you're editing if you've created a map with mkgmap.   
typwiz is a windows program, which doesn't work for me.

What I determined is that these typ codes don't work :
     0x2c, 2f, 10101, 2d, 33
These work as expected: 0x2a, 0x02, 0x01, 13

The theme file has names such as MAP_PLTCL_INTL_CLR, 
translate to a typ code, and overwrite what is coded by mkgmap?
