New Zealand Routable Garmin Maps do not work

Hi, I have been trying to get New Zealand tiles to work in MapSource.  I just downloaded the latest build (29-09-2010) using the dropdown for Oceania/New Zealand which yields these tiles:  NZ-Dunedin; NZ-Auckland; WS-Apia; NF-Kingston.  I have achieved the best results so far, however there are still problems.  In MapSource, the north and South Island of New Zealand show at 700, 500 & 300km scale, however as I zoom in, it disappears.  I tried downloading just one tile and it exhibits the same behavior.

Any ideas as I want to plan a bicycle trip in New Zealand and would like to have this working.

Thanks,

Peter

Ouch!

I just installed the New Zealand map too and the way MapSource (6.13.7) shows it is truly bizarre.

<100m and >200m shows nothing, so I have only two resolutions that show anything... :?

Re: New Zealand Routable Garmin Maps do not work

If you have a Garmin GPS and you want to cycle in NZ May I suggest this map: http://www.nzopengps.org/public/Latest_ … g_Mapsets/

It contains pretty much every lane and alleyway with names and most of them even with house numbers. Routable and searchable.

Cheers,
Peter.

Re: New Zealand Routable Garmin Maps do not work

It took a while but it seems like this bug has finally been fixed recently around Mkgmap version r2630. Current and newer maps should be alright near the -/+ 180 degrees meridian.

Edit:
At least it seems to work in MapSource, but Basecamp still doesn't show a map mad

Edit:
New Zealand seems alright, but the Fiji islands are still not showing up...

Edit:
For Fiji, the minimap in MapSource does show map features while the main map remains to show the faint yellow background. I can't find anything in Basecamp.

Re: New Zealand Routable Garmin Maps do not work

Not the solution, but may be a hint:
I observed also empty areas at some places and some resolutions. Some tests gave the following result: The behaviour depended on the parameter --max-nodes in splitter. A high number (1 600 000) resulted in empty areas, with a low number (--max-nodes=300 000) the map was OK.
