I generated a map from with the latest maptool and navit on my freerunner shows the following error:

map_binfile:map_binfile_open:invalid file format for '/media/card/nvmaps/planet.bin'

The command used is: bzcat $srcFile | $mapToolBinary -z 9 $destFile

Replying to

map_binfile:map_binfile_open:invalid file format for '/media/card/nvmaps/planet.bin'

If you're looking for the entire planet, can you please try (~4GB)

If that fails, can you please supply the map data line(s) from your navit.xml file.

Can you try using

bzcat planet.osm | ./maptool -6 planet.bin

The -6 generates a zip64 archive and fixed the problem for me.

Please let me know if using the -6 fixes the problem for you, so I can close off this ticket.
