[mkgmap-dev] garmin zumo XT

From brad bradhaack at fastmail.com on Mon Aug 10 02:59:07 BST 2020

Thanks Ticker
That helped a lot.    What I learned is that the Zumo does not like any 
custom types for points.   I tested it with my typ file and the mapnik 
one.   If there is something in the type file, nothing shows up on the 
zumo for that type code.   It does show me what the garmin icons are, so 
I'll have to work with that.   It really unfortunate, lesson learned: 
don't buy a zumo.
