[mkgmap-dev] Change in Garmin IMG format?

No they haven't changed the img format, what they did is that for years
they designed the maps in layout for desktop size displays, and finally
discovered maps should be much higher contrast on small displays. So they
introduced (already sind 2-3 years) a high contrast layout that is more and
more independent of the .typ-file layout. Since the newest update this is
even more noticeable.

It can be deactivated by selecting classic map design or similar. While
high contrast or mountainbike or whatever will use the new layout.
