I like it as a start; the colors of the main roads are muted which is good.
And I like the map legend which is necessary for visitors to understand the
map. There are some other items on my wishlist:
A regional view should highlight regional hike/bike routes. I like the
dashed footway renderings within a park or between buildings, but the dashes
are lost in the surrounding features for a regional 'greenways trail' for
example. One way to do this is for any route relation=bicycle/foot/hiking
, render in an 'important color'. Optionally, use the colour= tag of the
Route planning - choose start / end or manually set waypoints to create a
GPX track that can be downloaded to a navigator. This would include auto
or public transport routing.
A complete Garmin map download - I could probable rig this up myself with
the Mkgmap toolchain.
