interesting to know. I I'm still using osmgarminmap, atried it, but as 
the map was "not zoomable" I stayed with osmgarminmap for the time 

Just for clarification: I really like it that the combo 
osmgarminmap/qlandkarte *show* the faults in the database so I *can* 
fix it. But I wonder if there couldn't be an instance that avoids such 
errors much earlier.

Isn't the database the central instance? If one editor fails we will 
still have buggy data.

Have fun,
