Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I understand that ways can be tagged as maxspeed=, though, what I would like to know how to do is, taking an osm file only containing ways that have maxspeed= tags, take the ends of those ways and create POIs for those maxspeeds where they differ from other ways or against a way that isn't tagged with maxspeed, and isn't an intersection. Goal being to get maxspeed alerts into a Garmin at zone changes.

Do you really need to create a node POI ? As in, is the Garmin software unable to make use of the information on a way and need the information to be provided on a node instead ? That seems unlikely to me, because a speed limit realy only has meaning on a way, not on a node. Also, how do you distinguish which side of the node the speed limit applies to ?

Alternatively, knowing how to get mkgmap include speed limits...
