Generated a report with the variables mentioned above, by case, in csv format. Cleanup and review was needed to get the data ready for transfer to the Nuvi.

Data was reviewed to remove data points with invalid location information and reviewed for reasonable fit within boundaries via import to Google Earth (after KMLCSV Converter manipulation). Please let me know if you spot errors and I will correct and update.
