DE talk:OSM Map On Garmin/POI
Whith the OSM maps for garmin I am happy. At least what the graphics and routing concerns.
But I am not very happy with the POI.
POI in my garmin Nuvi are in 4 different places: Points of Interest, Favourites, Extras and as icons on the map. As far as I know some of the POI from OSM when converted with mkgmap are shown in the map, some are in Points of Interest.
I would like to have a list of POI which is filtered so that only such (but all of them) which I interested in are shown. In 'Points of Interest' they are not grouped after my desire. For example, on a tour I would like to see the nearest landmark, historical building (also ruin), Park/Garden or viwpoint. It is not practical to search all 4 groups one after the other.
So it seems to me that I have to make my own list of POI in Favourites and/or Extras. How to extract the desired POI from OSM (xml) ? And how to merge it with POI from other sources (gpx) ?
POI in OSM lack often of tags e.g. name and description. At least here in my region in Germany around the town Ulm.
Is there a possibility of automatically set the name of a POI if it does not exist (tourism=viewpoint -> name=viewpoint)? This is useful for garmin devices where only the name is shown in the selection menu.
