New maps generation procedure

Starting from map snapshot 2012-02-28, maps generating procedure has changed to Osm2garmin. The procedure change implies following changes:

  • Better maps are generated because of newer version of mkgmap utility built in Osm2garmin application.
  • Built in address search index – currently experimental, not working correctly in all areas.
  • Completely rewritten contours generation procedure. Contours density is more sensitive to the terrain shape in given area. Smaller contours interval is set in flat areas.
  • Changes in areas distribution – 12 areas are generated instead of former 10 areas. Introduced Central America area and Africa is newly split to North Africa and South Africa. Europe slitting moved further to the west.
