I downloaded and tried to install speed camera and red light camera files for France, Spain, Belgium and Switzerland T but when I tried to install them on my Nuvi 3590LM with POI loader I get this message during the installation process:
There is a data format error on line 2 of file /Users/XXXXXXXX/Desktop/Custom POI's/Road safety Belgium/Mobile_Speed_Camera-BE.gpx. The data earlier in the file will be written, but no more data can be read from this file.
I get this message on all the speed and red light camera files for all the countries I've tried to install so far. I have tried loading the files several times and in both formats without success...always the same message. Can someone help please.
I have had the same errors on a 765t Garmin Nuvi and experimented and found that if there were too many POI's in the same sub directory I received that error.
I just made separate sub directories for the POI's (for each catagory) and all has been ok since.

Could be just luck that it solved my problem, but worth a try.
Hi The Garmin POI Loader will not save any csv or gpx files to my PC as it says there must be at least one file with a gpx or csv suffix in that folder? Any ideas what to do? ta Chris
Why are you using POI Loader to save files to the PC ?
POI Loader is used to load files to the GPS, but you just save downloaded POI files to a directory on the PC.
There is a problem with loading the latest map update to BaseMap or Mapsource which Garmin are attempting to fix. Haven't heard any more back from then for a couple of weeks apart from acknowledging the problem..
