Have you tried?For the raster-based maps that I make, I actually created my own icons and generated points along the roads to display them. This was a lot of work, but gives me the control I like. My maps cover relatively small areas however. You can see examples in the screenshots herehttps://boydsmaps.com/boyds-map-of-the-pines-hd/This could also be done with Garmin maps if you really want to, but probably not worth the effort.Regarding cgpsmapper vs mkgmap, I'm still very happy with cgpsmapper and have made some very complex maps with it (also on my website). I don't know what you're trying to do and whether mkgmap would have any advantage. Of course, cgpsmapper is "dead" software so it might make sense to use something that is actively under development. OTOH, Garmin's dedicated GPS devices are also "dying" with fewer models and fewer people purchasing them.
