that is not custom POI,
after couples of times i open my eye big enough to see both my GPS & mapsource, i suspect that is my 'saved' location, i think that is the only reason why i can see in my device but not in mapsource. :oops:

Try redownloading the installer, uninstall MFM using C:\Garmin\Malfreemaps\unins000.exe, and then only reinstall.

Well, initially I had hoped that you don't have to uninstall Mapsource and the map products completely and reinstall them. However, since simple map product uninstallation does not cure the problem, I think you need to start from fresh.

First uninstall all Mapsource map products, and then Mapsource and any other Garmin software. Then run Regedit, and delete the whole Garmin folder at My Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Garmin (see pic below). Finally reinstall Mapsource and MFM.

" There is a problem with the gmapsupp installation
Please re-install gmapsupp and start MapSource again"

I have try to restart, uninstall and reinstall for several time. Anyone can help to share what is happening ? Thank you.

Hi guys ... i'd like to ask how to import all my favorite from my nuvi 255w to mapsource? I tried clicking "receive from device" and receive "waypoints" (i assume that is favourite?) and it come out error as "There was a problem communicating with the Garmin device"

But it works when i "Send to device" the map to my nuvi
