Hello all,

Does anyone know how to add map features to a Garmin via Mapwel without using a name or comment.  When I place my conductor, which is user defined lines, into a map and upload them to my Nuvi or Dezl unit they are visible.  Anytime I try to add a user defined point like fuses, for example, to my unit without specifying a name or comment during import-they do not show up on unit.  I am looking into this because I am adding poles, fuses, recloser, and other electrical devices that are points.  I discovered today changing the family and product ID for each map and that has helped the visibility of poles and meters I added, but still not all of them are. In areas where there are several lumped together in a small area some are just left out.  I think that either the points themselves or the names/comments are getting in the way. i wanted to be able to add map features without name or comment to see if i could make more map features visible in these areas.  Other than that I have had success and our field employees have liked my maps for searching and navigation. I am just trying to make viewing the map look better.

I hope I made this clear.  Any help or suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Thank you all,

Blake Jones
