Map Making Support / Re: Descriptions in POI fields ?

>> Is Apple Tree Camp really a levee?

No, that's I use an obscure type which is not used elsewhere in the map for my POIs,  using a TYP file to provide the desired icon.

FWIW, since I was currently in the process of creating maps so had everything already setup, I did a test where I set "StreetDesc=" in an .mp file to some text and compiled with cgpsmapper (a full-feature version, not the free version)  - but when I display the POI information in my Oregon that extra text does not appear.

Map Making Support / Descriptions in POI fields ?
« on: May 14, 2012, 05:06:38 PM »
Did a search on POI, looked at all 6 pages but nothing useful so am posting here.

I'm creating POIs in a Garmin .img file using cgpsmapper.  When I display a POI in an Oregon, the POI lat/lon and elevation are displayed, but there is also much blank space.  I was wondering whether it is possible to include "description" text, separate from the label, which might be displayed there.  For example, if I put some text into cgpsmapper's "StreetDesc=" field would that appear there?

Also, anyone know where the elevation came from?  I certainly did not include it in the input to cgpsmapper.

Followup: When starting to insert some text notes to myself at  the top of file map_install_x64-x86.nsi file,  I noticed that the _correct_ lines to modify are specified there.  That gave more confidence as to what was needed, so made appropriate changes (to include TYP and MDX  processing) and it did compile with NSIS.  Tested the resulting installation executable and it did work!  Hopefully the instruction page will get corrected some day.

Are people creating setup (installation) files using the instructions
"how-to-create-garmin-topo-maps---part-9---compiling-data" ?

The instruction line numbers do not match what the current "setup template file" map_install_x64-x86.nsi file ("Updated 4 Dec 11").  For example, the instructions refer to uncommenting line 130 which is a blank line and line 122 which is a actual comment line, not a commented-out instruction.
