discovered on the Garmin Website that the ique m5 is not one of the compatible devices that supports the POI software - might that be why it does not rcognise the device when i connect it? is there an alternative software that i can download that would load the poi files? what is the solution?
1. You need to download our POI files in GPX format (Garmin exchange POI format).
2. Install free GPSMapEdit
3. Load GPX file, export it as GDB file and transfer data to your Garmin M5 (use Garmin MapSource for transfer).
The MapEdit program appears not to be free but currently $65USD. Is there another way I can properly convert gpx files that I have downloaded (5 off) into gdb files for transfer to an iQue 3600 using Palm install utility ? There is no way to upload files to the iQue other than this install facility, I have tried everything - the device is simply not recognised in POI Loader, Mapsource or WebUpdater.
What would be really nice would be a merge and conversion tool that allowed all 5 gpx files to become a single workable gdb. Do you know if that can be done ?
Thanks in advance
