You're right. After switching to Mercator I see objects just like it's
rendered on online map.

The question is now which one projection is correct? I think gps
tracks displayed using Mercator are much more like I expect them to be
(now tracked parking has roads connected with right angle which is
what I observed in real). If so, why JOSM doesn't use Mercator by

Jozef, you wrote mail to me skipping mailinglist.
