Hi Everyone. This is my my first post and I'm learning tons of information on this website.
The question that I have is that when I connect my Nuvi 680 to my Macbook Pro, the Nuvi icon shows up with the different folders, like:
I transferred a bunch of MP3's into the MP3 folder and another bunch of pics to the Jpeg folder. The Nuvi had no trouble getting the songs and the pics. As soon as I turned on the Nuvi, the songs and the pics were there.
The problem is when I want to delete songs and pics . I connect as usual and go to the MP3 and Jpeg folder and delete the songs and the pics that I don't want anymore. After deleting then and disconnecting the Nuvi from the Computer, the Nuvi still have the songs and the pics that I just deleted ??????
Anyone knows why this is happening?

Total guess on my part (having never laid a finger on a mac)...
Is there some sort of 'Safe disconnection' process on the Mac? -- it sounds like the changes made to the file system haven't been committed back to the Nüvi. Maybe even just allowing 30 seconds, before disconnecting, would have an effect?
(Windows has a 'Safely Remove Device' function - though it's normally unnecessary for a removeable disk device (unless you've changed the policy to 'Optimise for performance', rather than 'Optimise for quick removal'). I'd be surprised if there aren't equivalents on the Mac.
Take a look at this thread where another user was trying to delete POIs using a Mac. He had tried "emptying" the trash can, but they were still there.
This was his original post.
For some reason I cannot get rid of my old POI's that I have loaded on my c550. If I delete everything out of the poi directory and RESET my device, I can still go to Custom POI and select a location without any issues. I’ve even tried overlaying the file with a single location using POI Loader… the old ones are still there. Any ideas on how I can clear all my custom POI's?
Here's what the he ended up doing.
OK, I figured out how to empty the Trash! The trash directory is .Trashes. The "." in unix is a hidden directory/file. Since the MAC OS X is bases on Linux I just accessed the C550 directory via Terminal. Issued the rm command in the .Trashes directory and now my trash is empty. And the c550 says I have no Custom POIs.
