[mkgmap-dev] Which options apply when.

Hi Karl,

--net is about putting address data into *.img tiles, so this is your 
step 2. Others are about creating index file *_mdr.img, this is done in 
step 3.

TYP is combined with *.img, you do it in step 3. You can add any TYP to 
any set of *img. Technically TYP is linked to img by FID/ProductCode and 
family-id/product-id. Probably mkgmap fills FID/PID into TYP file in 
step 3, but I have no experience with this process.

You can simply create a config file with all options and use it in all
