Is the one you submitted with this e-mail different from the one you sent around a few months ago? - I noticed that with the original patch the shelter (+/-) character would be truncated if the operator name was too long. You appear to have moved the shelter character to before the operator text now. Is this correct? I at least have been using the new POI types, and they work OK for me. - What I have also been experimenting with is a public transportation overlay map. This is a transparent map which I can place on top of the regular map. In it, bus, tram, and subway routes, stops and stations are emphasized using a special TYP file. As such, I can turn on and off the public transit map when I need it. This may be an interesting area of pursuit for you. In the long run it may be a better option than trying to add a lot of information into the standard map where Garmin has just not provided space for it (alas, Garmin seems to be rather uninterested in public transportation). Cheers.
