Awesome. Are there any docs anywhere being made for the routing format
similar to the venerable
http://sourceforge.net/projects/garmin-img ?

Also, when I was putting it together yesterday I saw osm2mp.pl
suggesting it was dealing with turn restrictions (although on reading
the code, it's not exactly sophisticated logic!). But when I was
playing with it last night my eTrex it was ignoring them. Am I
expecting too much, or would you expect turn restrictions to work?
