[mkgmap-dev] Garmin eTrex10 Map - POIs

From Neil Romig neil at sixtythree.me.uk on Sun Apr 16 13:12:48 BST 2023


Thanks for tip, I'll try that out. As for the POIs it is because I have tried to keep file size to a minimum (below 2MB) I have very few entries in my "points" file so the POI list is an assortment of
offshore islands and some ponds scattered across a 300km radius. Not very useful. I have remedied this by not having anything except towns, village and cities in the "points" file. I decided ti share
my UK map file at sites.google.com.view/etrex10 if anyone's interested.
