[mkgmap-dev] Resurrect adjust-turn-headings

From Ticker Berkin rwb-mkgmap at jagit.co.uk on Tue Oct 20 14:21:19 BST 2020

Hi Gerd

I kept the existing logic that takes all arcs within one degree and
treats them as one (and fixed the extra case where they straddle +-180)
so there should be no difference in this aspect.
