new poi loader released by garmin:
POI Loader at Garmin.com
EDIT: Users should note this is still a Beta version - JM
This new version has some pretty nice features. Here are a few examples:
* uninstall all custom POI's from a device.
* support for contact information and address information that can be specified in a GPX (.gpx) file.
* ability to choose POI files to ignore.
Being a beta version I have my reservations about stability. Have you tested this or do you know of others that have used this new version?
I haven't tried it yet. I'm keeping my focus on writing code right now...
Makes me think that a gps software review section would be a good idea.. Have you considered this and/or a way of doing polls at the forum? I use Delphi forums as an advanced member and they have some cool features. Just thinking "out loud" here..
The software we're using has some of those features as well. I'll look into them after the new POI database module is released and stable.
I just checked and it seems as though the latest version is POI Loader software version 2.3.2 as of August 21, 2006. I could not find the Beta version though!

That is the beta file that was mentioned. It isn't really a newly released beta. Wondering when Garmin will declare it a final version though. I've had pretty good luck with late beta's but would avoid Alpha's as they tend to be flaky.
In reply to your post, yes, I have already downloaded and have been using with NO problems. Seems very stable.
Thanx Skip and nice bike! Thinking of selling mine before my luck runs out. Had a few close calls, too many distracted people out there.
The current beta version is 2.4.0. It's available from the link in RFB's post at the start of this thread.
2.3.2 is the current stable release version. It doesn't include the new features that are in 2.4.0.
which is the 2.4 beta as opposed to your site 2.3:
hope that helps-
