 Description: Graphical User Interface for mkgmap
- mkgmap is a very useful and free command-line utility for making map 
- files for GPS devices. It is used to convert an Osm file into an Img file 
- and combine multiple Img files into one big Img file. 
+ mkgmapgui is a GUI front end to mkgmap, a command-line utility for
+ converting OpenStreetMap map files to files that can be uploaded to a
+ Garmin GPS device.
- There are lots of other things that mkgmap can do too, 
- including complicated style files and other configuration options, 
- but these two are the functions which most people use.
+ While not all the advanced features of mkgmap are implemented in
+ mkgmapgui, the most used are. mkgmapgui implements the following 
+ features:
- mkgmap works great, but it's command line only. 
- mkgmapgui is just a front-end to mkgmap.
+  * Converting an .osm file into a Garmin .img file
+  * Combining multiple .img files into one .img file.
