No, I actually tried that months before, on a different device that had 
a slightly different basemap. A button stopped clicking, and I returned 
the device for warranty service, a couple of weeks before the end of the  
2-year warranty period. The new try was on the replacement device, with 
originally clean history, but admittedly with some gmapsupp.img 

The "Recent Finds" menu is often corrupted after a gmapsupp.img upgrade 
on the Edge 705. When I dare to select an item in the menu, the device 
may crash or at least lose the map until the next reboot. But I was 
using the Shops/Special menu.

I have never experienced anything like that. Only the Recent Finds menu 
gives trouble for me.

I suspect that the problem was that the nearest way to the POI was a 
routing island, not reachable from the rest of the map (including the 
source point). I added some bicycle=yes footways across the 
highway=pedestrian area. (That should not have been a sin, because the 
bicycle route is marked on the plaza.) Let me retry with those ways in 
place. Yes, it works, using the way that I added.

My Edge 705 empties it as part of a full memory erase or firmware 
upgrade. :-)
