POI Loader 2.4.1 for Mac (64 bit)


I am not a Mac user but ran across this in another forum and don't know if it has been mentioned here.

Changes made from version 2.3.0 to 2.4.1:
Updated app to 64-bit.
Fixed issue with detecting Garmin-mode USB devices.
Dropped support for Mac OS 10.7, 10.8 and 10.9.

System Requirements:
Intel based Mac running OS 10.10 or higher.
Older OS users should use POI Loader 2.1.0

Downloaded and installed on a 2012 15" MBP with no apparent problems.

This replaced the 32bit version with a 64 bit one which will be required for MacOS 10.15, Catalina, which should be out this month.

Thanks, will try it

Thanks, will try it


Thank you.

I found a bug in version 2.4.1 ...

When creating a POI file using manual mode, all filenames show up only as a character set: %1$@

Perhaps this will be corrected in version 2.4.2. It's kind of unusable the way it is.


Follow-up: I have sent a report to Garmin about this bug and hope to receive a response within five to 10 business days. I'll be waiting by my computer for this, and will keep you updated.

it's the dog's fault

Garmin nuvi 2455 - nuvi 350, 260 (spares) - my other toys: IMac quad-core i3, Mac Mini, MacOS: Mojave 10.14.6/Catalina 10.15.7. and introducing The Beast, a 2013 Dodge Charger Pursuit and his Garmin DriveSmart 5. The dog's name is Ginger.

POI-Loader 64-bit

Well found. It was not posted, or if posted, not well, when I was looking a short while ago.

This will complete my 64-bit applications for Catalina.
