The --description=XXX is displayed in mapsource in the user data tab 
when you select a map for upload, and forms the first part of the map 
name in the GPSr. If you are not using mapsource to upload maps then 
this could very well be different.

Are you confusing this with the series-name option which assigns the map 
name in the "Select a Product" drop down list in mapsource?
