Re: Worldwide routable Garmin maps: http://garmin.openstreetmap.nl

There is a problem showing Tortolì.

I have created a a Generic Routable (new style) map of Sardegna, downloaded the macosx maps and use it with Mapsource and Basecamp. The city Tortolì is shown as Tortol? in both Mapsource and latest Basecamp.

Re: Worldwide routable Garmin maps: http://garmin.openstreetmap.nl

The maps are not using (all) unicode characters because some Garmin devices don't support that. It is possible to create such a map with mkgmap but I don't know any provider who compiles maps with that codepage.
Or do you think that the name is Tortoli (with a normal i)?

Re: Worldwide routable Garmin maps: http://garmin.openstreetmap.nl

Noticed that on my Openfietsmap Tortolì is rendered fine (I use latin-1, code-page: 1252 characterset to compile my maps).
Any idea what could be the cause Gerd? As far as I know Lambertus also use this codepage.

Re: Worldwide routable Garmin maps: http://garmin.openstreetmap.nl

Maybe he doesn't use those option for the generic new style maps?

As far as I know he did use this but maybe his settings are messed up lately. I can't contact him though, he never responds so better use another map provider.

Re: Worldwide routable Garmin maps: http://garmin.openstreetmap.nl

I've just downloaded the map tile and analysed it with display tool. It contains two different spellings: TORTOL? and TORTOLÌ
I see two possible reasons: Either the used bounds file contains a wrong spelling or the actual OSM data contains it.

Re: Worldwide routable Garmin maps: http://garmin.openstreetmap.nl

Last edit is 3 years ago, so an issue in the actual data does not seem likely. I dont know what the bounds file has to do with the rendering of the place node?

How do you know that this is about a place node?

Well, you are probably right, the node with label TORTOL? is shown at https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/72990751

Re: Worldwide routable Garmin maps: http://garmin.openstreetmap.nl

Maybe it is caused by the transliteration that Lambertus does while processing his maps:

Sure, if that is still active it could be the reason.

I've ssen this thread before posting my question, but I thought it's 10 years old, so it should be fixed. Well, who knows.

City Navigator shows the correct name: Tortolì

Well, Lambertus the maintainer of the maps seems not very active anymore with development of the maps nor watching this forum so don't expect too much. We should be glad he still is updating them anyway.
