Toll Avoidance

I have a JDM Zumo 550 with the toll avoidance turned on, but automatic routing from Kitakyushu to Fukuoka city routes using toll roads.


I downloaded OSM for Garmin devices. It seems that integration of Map has a mistake in April although it is an updated part. There is a zone which is not displayed with a map. I wish-do. Thank you always.

Sorry about that. The problem may be related to the database purge due to the license change. Where is the bad area? --Gribeco 22:36, 13 April 2012 (BST)

The center in the Keihanshin area has dropped out sideways.

Okay. I also discovered that a good part of Tochigi-ken is now under water. I just generated a new map using the latest dump. (I'm traveling right now, so it's hard to make verifications, but I can still run the generation scripts.) --Gribeco 23:09, 18 April 2012 (BST)

Thank you always.

Small problem in

I am an OSM mapper of Japan. I appreciate very much that you are continuing making By the way, there is a small problem in present It is that way as which highway=construction was specified is also a routing object. If it can do, please remove such ways from routing. Thank you. Show-ichi 12:04, 30 May 2012 (BST)

Okay. In theory, this is already covered; here's how my TYP file handles it:
# Treat ways under construction as highway=path
highway=construction | highway=* & construction=* {add access = no; add bicycle = yes; add foot = yes; add mkgmap:dead-end-check = false } [0x16 road_class=0 road_speed=1 resolution 23]
I made changes to restrict this even futher. I tried to generate a new Garmin image based on the latest OSM dump but I'm having trouble; the conversion tool (mkgmap) is unable to finish. I'll try again with a new dump in a few days. --Gribeco 03:38, 3 June 2012 (BST)
I uploaded a new using the same dataset (from May 6) but with the new construction configuration. --Gribeco 00:24, 7 June 2012 (BST)

Maps for Mapsource?

I'd like to have a map that I can also use in MapSource, not on the device itself only. Can you provide such a map, please?

Thanks in advance.

Okay; I just added a Mapsource installer. Let me know if it works. --Gribeco 19:56, 24 June 2012 (BST)
Worked just fine. Thanks for the quick solution! --Sbreit 20:31, 25 June 2012 (BST)

No labels showing?

Hi! I've just tested the most recent gmapsupp.img on my Oregon 450 (SW 6.10). It seems that no labels are displayed. IOW: I don't have no text on the map at all. I also tried the other fonts as described in Mkgmap/i18n with no effort. Other japanese maps work as expected, so I don't suspect the fonts as such... Do you have any idea? Thanks in advance!

Okay, here's an update: As long as you compile the map with codepage 932, no text at all will be displayed on the device. In Mapsource or BaseCamp, everything works as expected. It seems that the only thing one can do (for now) is to compile a map with e.g. "--name-tag-list:ja_rm" if you want to use it on a "western" device.
I'm wondering if the maps still are OK for japanese devices (e.g. Oregon 450TC)?

I have the same problem on my Garmin etrex 20. I replaced the font files with the ones from the nüvi update as explained in Mkgmap/i18n, but there is no text at all on my display. This is with the most recent map image.--Adriann (talk) 12:28, 27 March 2014 (UTC)
I have the same problem on my Garmin 600 (Western version). The fonts are OK since I was able to install a Japanese.gtt file and get Japanese displayed in the menues. However, there is no text at all (not even ASCII text) in the Japanese map. There's a hint on [1] that this could be a firmware bug ("Dropping the mkgmap option "--ignore-osm-bounds" does the trick to me.") Do you see any chance of trying this out?
Update: The problem seems to have been that my device can "only" display UTF8 but the map from uses SJIS. After downloading a UTF8-coded map from everything works fine and Japanese labels are being displayed. --Jcsjcs (08 Dec 2015)
