I have noticed that most all POI file names have no spaces in the file name and many use the "-" or "_" characters where a space would be appropriate.
Most alway I rename the files to suit my taste and this normally involves introducing spaces into the name. I have not experienced any problems with POI loader loading them. I use a 765T.
So the question is: Is there are technical reason that POI filenames seldom, if ever, have a space in the file name?
Is it because some GPS models do not support them?
Is it because some older versions of POI Loader did not support them?
There's no "technical" reason.
Just likely the preferences of the file author.
Some operating systems just don't like spaces in file names so they add the underscore when they encounter a space.
Or the OS truncates the file name at the first space, so a file named "a b c.gpx" becomes "a". By naming the file "a_b_c.gpx" you avoid the problem entirely.
