TOPO France V4 PRO Spanish & Italian TYP file

It seems strange that both V3 & V4 TYP files only cater for English,French and German but not Spanish and Italian l

We have added these languages using TYPWiz5 Translator

Download i0000c08 revised TYP file with Spanish and Italian Labels.

If you select Spanish or Italian on your GPS ,the labels should appear in either Spanish of Italian,not English or French!

Active Routing

It appears to support active routing for Cycle modes only -

Not only does the TYP file not include any lines for say hiking ,mountaineering etc, but even when adding the full range of active highways for hiking with the same type numbers as for cycling, none appear when selecting 'hiking'.

 
Cycling Tour Cycling  

Using TYPWiz5 the active routes have been made larger and each mode given a different colour.

When you set Basecamp to its lowest level , the active routing can be seen more globally.

In many cases, all modes of cycling seem to be following the same route.

Extra POIS

Original TYP file TYP file with new extra poi
   

There are no City Navigator Extra POIs, ie commercial pois, included in the TOPO France V4 eventhough the TYP file has not been cleared of irrelevant data concerning C N maps.

However,there is at least one extra POI which does not feature in the original TYP file, ie Campsite!

This seems to support the idea that extra pois need to be linked via 'normal' pois and cannot exist by themselves.

There may be more.

Contours

Perhaps to reduce its size, Garmin seems to have dropped contours <50 m and only uses 0 x 10902 .
