Polygons

Garmin Nuvis do not use bitmap polygons . TYPWiz5 uses the most dominant colour when converting to kmtf.

Transparent colours are replaced with 'white'

Lines

For most highways and lines only solid colours are used - tracks and railway lines are the exception.

TYPWiz5 uses the most dominant colour when converting to kmtf.

Transparent colours are replaced with 'white'

My kmtf file is incomplete

Lines or Polygons which cannot be matched in a TYP file are not included in your kmtf file.

Instead, they are rendered using Garmin's default style.
