Customize the map

The TYP files, such as 10010.TYP (OFM Benelux full version) 20010.TYP (OFM light version), define the layout of the map and can be adjusted. For instance if you don't like the colours of the roads/areas, want another map symbol, or want make the road-lines wider so it's better to see on your GPS.

Richard's TYP file

Antonin's drinking_water TYP:

- scaling up the pic for amenity=drinking_water
- removing the pics for benches and fences as they tend to bring too
much clutter in certain regions (especially because my GPS unit was
configured to display a lot of details, so that amenity=drinking_water
showed up at higher zoom levels).

Highlights the cycling and MTB routes for better visiblity on small Garmin screens.
