I'm a new user, just coming to grips with loading POI files on my Nuvi 1390.

I find that POI Loader crashes on my Mac if I try to load a .bmp file along with the corresponding .gpx and .mp3 files. All the files are named identically, but with the three different extensions.

If I leave out the .bmp file, the POI loader works OK.

Has anybody else seen this? Is it perhaps a problem with Mac OS X Snow Leopard?

I have been using my 760 with a Mac for quite a while and have not experienced the problem you described. I have however, not "upgraded" to Snow Leopard out of fear many applications would no longer work. I suspect that is the issue you are having. Were you having that problem prior to Snow Leopard?

Thanks for your response roadrider01.

I don't know if it would have worked under a prior version of Mac OS because I had already upgraded to Snow Leopard several weeks before I bought my Garmin. I'm still finding out stuff about the Garmin and I'm hoping that I at least get the voice and/or beep warnings of speed cameras etc. I think I can test that with a simulation.

I certainly won't be buying a PC any time soon! I could run Windows on my Mac, but I think I read that the Garmin isn't recognised on USB under that scenario.

Any other ideas welcome.

Eureka! I have that issue solved. It seems that a .bmp file had been left open in the download process. POI LOader objects to being fed with open files.

Issue closed thanks.
