The nearest mapper in the Davao-Samal Island area is Marloue/Murlwe. You can contact him via email (see the cc list).

I have been concentrating on Samal Island in the Davao Gulf just offshore from Davao City and have done a few farm roads around Davao on the mainland.  Samal Island only had a few roads on the map but I have been able to add most of the existing roads.  Most is dirt track roads - even the main highways so I do most by driving my old Land Cruiser and using the tracks from the GPS.

I do have a problem that maybe somebody can help me with.  Access to Samal Island with a vehicle is via vehicular ferry. I have tried may ways to define the ferry route but no matter what I do the GPS will not navigate if I select a destination that includes crossing from the mainland to the island or visa versa.  Can anyone suggest what to do?

I have been in Hong Kong for a few weeks but hope to get back to Davao in a week or two and continue with the map.
