[mkgmap-dev] garmin zumo XT

Thanks from me too. I currently have two Garmin Montanas but have always
been curious about the more modern Zumo models. I can put that issue to
rest now because I make my own maps with mkgmap. It's tricky enough getting
everything right with a Garmin GPS that behaves "normally". My Montana
works well enough to do what I want with it.
