Mac POI Loader 2.1.0 Proximity Quirk - Anyone Else?


Using OS X 10.4.11 and Garmin Mac POI Loader 2.1.0

I get the following quirky behaviour.

If I create a POI file using Manual Method and a Proximity Distance from a CSV file on my IMac and written back to the IMac then transfer the resulting GPI file onto my Nuvi 360, the proximity distances are not set in the GPI on the Nuvi.

However, if I create the same POI file but get POI Loader to write the file directly onto my Nuvi 360, the proximity distances are set correctly.

Anybody getting the same quirk? Anybody have an idea why beyond Garmin wrote "bad" code?


Not the Illinois one.

I am actually uglier than the GIF! <grin>
