Does this product actually do ANYTHING?

I purchased a GARMIN because I THOUGHT it had Mac support. They don't even have TELEPHONE support. You could die of natural causes waiting for them to answer the phone in Australia! :(

Truly disappointed by an otherwise EXCELLENT product.

My pal, using the Windows Garmin POI Loader has a choice, in the first window, of Garmin Device - MapSource (Advanced) - Custom Folder (Advanced) and, in the next window of Remove POI's or Add POI's.
This Mac version has offers no such choices. Once it finds your device it offers only one choice: add POI's.
Come on Garmin! We paid as much for our GPS units as did the non-Mac using purchasers. How hard would it be to offer comparable software for Mac users???
