Dear Garmin OSMers,

Just a couple of minor update re: OSM-PH Garmin Maps you guys might be

Firstly, since I launched the daily updates, I am receiving more than
usual bug reports about the map (both in the wiki and trac).  Thanks
to all bug reporters!

As a result, we were able to fix a several minor bugs in the map
mostly on the style and routing.

Details in my blog:

And the README.txt:

Secondly, I have added a debug logging report in the daily map compilation:

The generated report indicate routing issues, that needs fixing the
data.  This is very helpful especially for routing.  One example
report goes like this:
2010/03/25 20:07:04 WARNING (RouteNode): philippines.osm: Outgoing
roundabout flare road
(http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/way/45176106) points in wrong
direction? http://www.openstreetmap.org/?mlat=14.16571&mlon=121.23975&zoom=17

This means that an outgoing way from a roundabout may have a wrong direction.

Another one goes like this:
2010/03/25 20:05:32 WARNING (RestrictionRelation): philippines.osm:
Turn restriction http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/relation/456684
(at http://www.openstreetmap.org/?mlat=14.55841&mlon=121.02640&zoom=17)
'from' way http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/way/32946692 doesn't
start or end at 'via' node or way

This means that this particular turn restriction relation doesn't have
a via node/way

I suggest you take a look at the report and fix what you think is an
actual map error.  This report is also updated daily.

At the moment, please disregard the error like this one:
2010/03/25 20:05:32 WARNING (StyledConverter): philippines.osm:
Motorway exit null
has no motorway! (either make the exit share a node with the motorway
or specify the motorway ref with a exit:road_ref tag

Thirdly, I launched an appeal to raise donations in order to upgrade
the trac/svn site.  This tool is important for me to monitor progress
and track reported map problems/issues.


After 3 days, I reached the target for upgrading the site for one
year!  Thanks to all the donors (they are listed at the bottom of the
map download page).

I intend to continue the donation request and this time around, I plan
to use the donations to purchase more GPS data loggers under our
GPStogo Program.


Any idea on the price of small bluetooth GPS dataloggers?
