[OSM-dev] OSM on Magellan

I've been using this converter for some time. It works fine for small osm files, but crashes system while processing big files of about 2-3 gigabytes. It seems that converter loads whole osm dataset in memory at some point and crashes if system has not enough resources.
I wonder whether this can be helped easily or this is an inherent problem of magellan format?

> Some of the features are:
> * Can create maps for Magellan Meridian, Sportrack, Explorist and Triton 
> series GPS devices from Magellan
> * The map generation is highly configurable using a Osmarender like XML rule
> file
> * Can generate POIs sorted in categories and sub-categories
> * Topographical maps can be created from any GDAL supported raster DEM file
> The latest release can be found at http://prdownloads.sf.net/pymag.
