I have been trying to connect my 2720 to my LCD iMac to load POI's via MacGarmin tools. Whenever I attempt to convert files I'm getting an error (Apple Script error, NSInternal script error (8)).
My Mac also doesn't seem to see the GPS at all. I've emailed back and forth with the developer of MacGarmin Tools and we're kind of stuck.
My question: Has anyone been successful connecting and loading POI's to a 2720 using a Mac running OS 10.3.9 (If I was running 10.4 I'd try Garmin's beta.)
Any advice is welcome.
Figured it out.
Would you care to share the solution? Other Mac users, like me, would like to know.
Used my sister's PC. Apparently the 2720 isn't Mac compatible. Used poi loader on a Vista machine but I was hoping that the mac garmin solution would work and it may if you're using OS 10.4. If I update I'll give it another go.
I realize it's probably not the answer you were (or for that matter I was) looking for. I was hoping someone here would have been down this path already but it doesn't appear so.
Sorry, I missed the "solution" on the thread. I'm running OS X 10.3.9. I get the same error message. So what's the solution?
I can load POIs onto my SP 2720 from my PowerBook G4 (OS 10.4) using the POI loader I downloaded from Garmin. I don't know what the MacGarmin Tools you speak of are. It does work. Maybe the MacGarmin Tools require Tiger (10.4) instead of Panther (10.3).
I can second what jcf2001 wrote. Garmin's recently released Mac tools work flawlessly for me on a MacBook running Mac OS X 10.5.1. Give it a try. You can download it directly from https://buy.garmin.com/shop/store/downloadsDetails.jsp?id=36...
I couldn't use the Garmin loader because it won't run on my 10.3.9. Instead, I tried to use the MacGarminTools at
