the XT uses themes not typ files. According to this page: https://www.pinns.co.uk/osm/theme_editor.html the TYPWiz editor can convert typ to themes.

I have not tried this myself yet, I did however edit my themes.

Look for some more info about editing themes in this thread: viewtopic.php?f=48&t=730&p=4641&hilit=themes#p4641

I hope you can find out if converted .typ files will work on the XT :D

would you be willing to share your .typ file from ts post? looks much better than the garmin version!

Typefiles for various maps are here. Currently not tested on Z-XT....

I have now tested installing own typfiles in maps to be used on Zumo XT.

It works fine. The installation procedure is not different from what you use with other Garmin models. But the map needs to be licensed for the GPS.

Within a few days you can download typfiles for Zumo XT for City Navigator 2021.1 and Swedish Topo PRO V6 from http://resmark.se/gps/hmrtyp.zip
