Garmin maps

Overlays for missing maxspeed/surface, etc?

Notes on Garmin custom map making (mkgmap)

  • Styles maps OSM elements to Garmin types
  • Garmin types can be customized with .TYP files. (road color/width/pattern, POI icons, etc)
  • Styles can have a parent. style/info base-style: BASE_STYLE_NAME (does works for multiple levels?)
Produce a test map with all(?) known Garmin types (the default lat/long is 51.7/0.24)
   export BASE_LAT=50.0
   export BASE_LONG=10.0
   mkgmap test-map:all-elements

.TYP files
Garmin types
  • Are the type ids restricted to the ones garmin understand natively, or can one use the whole range in combination with a external TYP file?
  • IMG format has only 6 bits available for storing a polyline type. So only 64 polyline types available.
