New Maps


O.k. there are new maps currently being built. They have autorouting that blows everything what existed here before away. Just play around with them and please comment back on how you like it, and if there is something to improve.

I had no single Mapsource error anymore (found a bug this Morning, and Mark Button was so kind to produce a patch to solve it – there could be errors associated to the patch, but I haven’t found any). The biggest problem therefore are unconnected roads as of now and missing tags.

— Have Fun!

Still missing a few POI in the Typfile though (you can identify them in Qlandkarte GT or Mapsource looking at the map legend). Autorouting improved once more.New lines visible on GPS and/or Qlandkarte GT Search for roadnames. Not as good as real address search but better than nothing. Icons for Polygons Many more small things. ATTENTION ON UPDATE – Delete all old *.img before copying in the new data. I patched my mkgmap installation to allow for less layers. Now there are only 4 layers (main, main2, mtb1, mtb2). This means you can’t simply overwrite on updating but you need to delete all […]
