Converting mp files, Garmin GPS object type

How do you translate Garmin maps to OSM data? There is a guy who wants to translate some mp files to osm, and I know there are people doing it the other way around, so how do you do it?

Re: Converting mp files, Garmin GPS object type

It appears that Mkgmap can convert .mp to .img. As it knows the .mp format it therefore shouldn't be hard to add conversion from .mp to .osm. I don't know of any other way currently.

Re: Converting mp files, Garmin GPS object type

I haven't looked at the code of that java application yet, but I thought I would link some stuff here:


Here is the data:
http://www.calgarycachers.net/trailmaps … source.zip

This is the thread:
http://lists.openstreetmap.org/pipermai … 25979.html

There is an index of the object type ids in the manual (page 90 - page 105), the are also listed in a  RGNtype.xls and .txt file that I can't get because the program is distributed as an executable.
http://cgpsmapper.com/download/cGPSmapp … -v02.4.pdf

The list below contains the map element types and their associated codes in both
hexadecimal and decimal format. This list is distributed with cGPSmapper in two formats:
a text file (RGNtype.txt), and an Excel spreadsheet (RGNtype.xls). Both of these files can
be found in the cGPSmapper installation directory. The Excel spreadsheet contains a
graphical representation of many of the element types.
