POI Loader - Newly loaded files "Greyed Out" (MAC)

I have a Garmin Nuvi 3590 and in the past, from this site, have downloaded and installed custom POIs. Yesterday I downloaded more custom POI to my Macbook desktop. I used the most recent version of POI Loader, 2.3.0, that I can find. All my Custom POI info is in a folder on the desktop.

Basecamp Map Issue (MAC)

I installed Google Earth, then installed Google Earth Pro. Basecamp only wants to open Google Earth. I removed Google Earth and now Basecamp can't find Google Earth Pro.

Anyone got an idea how to make it recognize Google Earth Pro?

Troubleshooting BMP Icon issue w/ Mac POI Loader

I spoke with someone today who was having troubles loading BMP icons using the Mac version of POI Loader. He had done some troubleshooting with Garmin technical support, and they found that the icons worked with the PC version of POI Loader but not the Mac version. On the Mac, they would cause an "unexpected error".

GPX Editor (for Mac)

Thought I'd mention there's a GPX Editor for Mac now:

How do I load POIs onto my Garmin 3590 using my iMac?

I am new here. As stated in the subject line I am trying to load a POI onto my Garmin 3590. I did surf the topics and tried to use the search feature with no joy. I did find the instruction for using a PC.

Unlocking 2014.40 for Roadtrip

I just installed City Navigator North America 2014.40 on my Garmin nevi 2350LMT using Garmin Express v3.0.7.0. So while the unit was still hooked up to my Mac I decided to do some preliminary work on a drive to Gatlinburg, TN using Garmin Roadtrip. When the app launched I got the usual dialog reporting that the new map was locked and recommending that I unlock it online.

What do I dare erase from my SD card?

I have an 8GB sd card in my Nuvi 260W. I'd like to erase non-essential files to make more room. Here is a list of the files in the Garmin folder on the sd card at present.

What do you suggest I erase to create more space?


SD card format

What format do I need to use a 4GB sd card in my Nuvi 260W? I use a MBP computer and will format/reformat the SD card w/ Disk Utility.

Thanks for the help!!
