When you upload files with Garmin POI loader it will give you a choice as to destination, choose SD card and thats it. Of course make sure that the card is properly inserted into the device and that your MacBook is showing both the device and the card on the desktop. You do need to create a new folder by using "finder" and name it Garmin POI. You save the downloaded files there first by dropping them from your downloads folder,then when you use Garmin POI loader you choose that file as the upload and the SD card as the destination. Stay clear of the Garmin device content and only use the SD card, they you won't spoil anything on the device. If you use a decent size SD card say 16 gb you will never ever even approach filling it with POI.
I should add that when you create the folder "Garmin POI" you will want to create separate files within it for each set off POI. I refer to take the bmp. file and the csv file for from downloadstothe desktop then I can drop them into the Garmin POI file I have previously created for that individual file.
when you go into the device these files will show as a new category "Custom POI" which you canned to the main menu for easy access.
Whatever your thinking of doing. Do it now!
