The Geofabrik process does not have multiple steps (and thus no "map
combining" step). I use the following parameters with mkgmap:
-n 80000111 --description="OSM Map of Haiti dated $DATE" --country=HAITI
--region-name=HAITI --region-abbr=HT1 --country-abbr=HT --latin1
--road-name-pois --gmapsupp --draw-priority=99
The "-n" and "--region-*" were requested by someone who needed the older
.img files (not gmapsupp.img) for installation on an older type Garmin.
I don't even specify --route - should I? Nobody ever complained.
I'm happy to modify that to whatever makes sense but admit to having
absolutely null knowledge of "installers". When I add --nsis to the
above, I get the following additional files: osmmap_license.txt (192
bytes) and osmmap.nsi (1916 bytes). What do I do with them? Simply put
them in the download directory and everything works magically? Would be
too easy wouldn't it ;-)
