+Crid Posted December 22, 2008 Share Posted December 22, 2008 In the Colorado 2.9 firmware thread there was a mention of TYP files and how they can modify how various attributes appear on the GPS (I compared it to CSS, perhaps incorrectly). I don't seem to be having much luck finding a decent walk-through showing me exactly what I need to do in order to use a TYP file on the Colorado. It appears I have to use genTYP and/or MapSetTookKit, but that's about as far as I've managed to get. I'm not sure if I have to extract the TYP file from the map file and compile it somehow. In particular I'm interested in changing some attributes on OpenStreetMap maps I've generated using mkgmap (so I can distinguish between non-road lines like footpaths, bridleways, byways, etc). At present I'm cheating by using things like contour lines and depth lines, but it's far from ideal. Can anybody point me in the direction of a decent walk-through showing me the steps I need to follow in order to end up with customised map features? Thanks in advance. Quote Link to comment
