Re: Problem in Font

I think the map uses latin1 codepage because this is supported by most of the devices.
The tool used to create the map (mkgmap) can be configured to select e.g. the int_name tag in preference to name.
I assume this feature is not used and so the program tries to translate the aracbic (?) name اهواز to latin.

The program mkgmap also supports unicode, I think your device also supprts it, but I don't know if you can type arabic characters
in the search fields...
