Really funny.
I must confess that I didn't think about the subtype. I just wondered, why an Island was under "water types" in my menu. And so I suggested to change the type.
But I learned a lot of interesting things in this discussuion. :-)))

Summasummarum my point of view of the Garmin devices has not changed:
They make really good hardware but the software would really need to be improved. When I look at the chaos in an official Garmin forum I doubt that they have a software development process.
