Because of the large dataset there is only a version available for Mapsource/Basecamp (no gmapsupp.img provided).
Windows users can place the unzipped maptiles from the archive into a folder of their choice and run install.exe.
To convert into Mac / gmap format, please use Javawa’s excellent Mapconverter tool.
Just drag the zip file on this tool and it will unpack, convert and install it automatically.
yes, avoid ‘toll roads’ and faster time will prefer those cycling routes.
So better choose shorter distance and don’t prefer highways (snelwegen) in Mapsource (put the road selection slider in the middle)
Yes that is intended. It has to do with the contours, if I want a green background, contours may fall under the green carpet (invisible) at certain zoomlevels in Mapsource.
In my BNL map I compose the contour lines in a different way, which doesnt have this negative impact.
Besides this, everywhere you will see “area” or in Dutch “gebied” and without green background there is no such label.
Well, I will probably wait for a while for the next updates because the odbl cleansing could be disastrous in Europe…
Probably this will be the only update for Europe this year so everybody out there can use it on their cycling holidays.
For the Benelux I will continue the regular updates, first with the light version, we will see what will happen next week.
