[mkgmap-dev] maps overlaying each other

Hi Gerd and Michael.
Yes, i should have been clearer.
I do combine countries and have maps around 4GB each. I often disable one map, 
but sometimes this is not convenient. Such as when driving over a border or 
hiking in a border area, one usually wants to see both sides.

Anyhow i will try to generate the tiles differently.
If i use splitter for a larger area to make sure i get one tile only for one 
area, but do not have a tool to see which tiles are crossing the borders 
(which can be many for long borders), what is the best way to know which tiles 
should go into both maps?
