This is going to be a strange post as I have a problem and working on it but I'm doing it the forum so people can chip if they have an answer before I do! Hope this makes sense! Thumbs Up

Right the problem is that I'm using a Mac to create master POI files which I want to convert to use on a Garmin 770LMT-D. Unfortunately a lot of the POIs have descriptions that contain diacritical marks (i.e. accents on letters, e.g. ΰαθιη etc.).

I'm using Mac MS Excel to create the .xlsx master file and then convert it to .csc file. I use GPSBabel which was good when I was using the Mac to create TomTom POIs with diacritical marks. I know that Macs have a problem with UTF-8 character set so this could be the issue.

To recap: Diacritical marks not display correctly in custom POI on Garmin:
1. I'm using a Mac
2. Using Mac MS Excel to create original master file (.xlsx) and then .csv file.
3. Using GPSBabel.

My current line of investigation is to see if GPSBabel can create .gpx files, from Mac .csv files, which can be correctly processed by POI Loader into a .gpi file.

Regards,
