The POINTS OF INTEREST LOADER software is freely available to download from Garmin's website (click here). However, when downloaded to my WinXP (service pack 2) box it fails to open properly when I run it - only the upper part of the control panel displays - the 'next' and 'quit' buttons are missing so I cannot use it. However, downloading it to my son's box (also WinXP pack 2), it works perfectly. So, I burnt the proven-to-be-working-version onto a disc and brought it home however, when I loaded the disc the software still behaves on my machine as it did from the download. There are a few separate files in the download and the error infers that the application is not linking together on my box. It is so frustrating as it probably means other applications are not running properly too. Incidentally, I've emailed Garmin on this but they haven't responded and in fairness, it seems that their software is probably fine - it's my box that's at fault. Has anyone any clues that could shed a ray of light on this one? Many thanks Mike43
Thanks rawprawn - perhaps my use of word 'box' was unfortunate. In all cases this means the PC as the POI LOADER is downloaded and the application runs on the PC. It is then used (if I can get it to work!) to collate and push data down a USB to the Garmin Satnav. So at this point the issue of space on the Satnav itself doesn't arise.
