Railroada
« on: July 06, 2016, 09:00:51 AM »
I am building a Garmin map, one of the items being maps is a railroad. I am using the standard type X14 and have made a custom TYP file :

[_line]
Type=0x14
UseOrientation=Y
Xpm="32 5 4 1"
"= c #202020"
"  c none"
"3 c #202020"
"4 c none"
"================================"
"     =======         =======    "
"     =======         =======    "
"     =======         =======    "
"================================"
;12345678901234567890123456789012
string1=0x04,Railroad
[end]

Display in Basecamp is perfect - but on a Garmin Oregon some sections of track are displayed with spaced pixels - see attachments. Also, the railroad only appears on the Oregon when zoomed in much further than specified.

Any help much appreciated!

I would try to remove "UseOrientation=Y".

Most GPS doesn't display object 0x14 when zooming out, use other object for railroads if you want them visible.
