[mkgmap-dev] Compiling INFO.XML file

From Gerd Petermann gpetermann_muenchen at hotmail.com on Tue Oct 10 20:11:54 BST 2023

Hi Diego,

maybe you use the options in the wrong order or maybe you are looking at the wrong xml file?
I just tried with these options
java -jar dist\mkgmap.jar --overview-mapname=xyz --series-name=myseries --family-name=gerd --family-id=1234 --gmapi d:\mkgmap\bin\resources\in\osm\is-in-samples.osm
and I get a folder
containing the attached info.xml file.

Hi Diego

If you use the --gmapi mkgmap option it will make the folder (named with --family_name option) and contents, including Info.xml

Hello guys
When I create the map for Basecamp, I get a folder under ProgramData\Garmin\Maps with a INFO.XML file inside.
There are many fields, but I am able to fill only some of them.
Could you please tell me what options I need to use in Mkgmap to fill these fields ?

 <Name>OSM map</Name>
 <Name>series name</Name>

Are they really important for Basecamp map or for the Garmin one ?

Here are the options I am actually using:


Many thanks
