I have never seen a thing like that, and I'm "inside" Garmin for almost 15 years.
Anyway, since I've NEVER had issues due to Hiden files (I ALWAYS show and see anythings, anywhere and anyhow).
I dislike Windows limitation, they could be frustrating ...
Try to enable showing Hidden and System files in Explorer and go search for GPI files, thy should be exist.

It's a complexe problem...
It doesn't seem like it was a hidden file ...
I'm stubborn ;-) I've been working on this for many days !
I'm a tech and used to figuring out wierd problem, but this one was tough !
I just solved my problem :-) : Conclusion : One or more files were corrupted in the "Garmin" folder on the SD.
I figured the problem by putting my backup in the "Garmin" folder on the SD and now all the POI files are finally gone :-)
Out of curiostity, I compared all the files in both the new "Garmin" folder on my SD and the corrupted "Garmin" folder on my computer.
Oddly enough, the file size and dates all seem the same in both folder ???
Still the conclusion remains : A corrupted line of programming somewhere ... Where I don't know or care really as long as my nuvi works properly LOL
I can now concentrate my time on my European vacation itinerary
Anyways i hope this helps someone else eventually :-)

Okay, I'm glad you fixed it somehow.
Meanwhile, I say "Welcome to Europe", I hope you have also planned a visit to my city: Florence
I went to Canada in 1996 with my wife. I was a guest of some relatives in Woodstock (Ontario) for 1 month.
I visited Canada north to Ottawa, east to Montreal, west to Lake Eire. I have also visited almost the entire east coast of the United States, from Niagara-Buffalo to Philadelphia

Hi again, I downloaded your radar GPIs " Cyclops Safety camera data (radars) " and when I copy them to my POI folders either on my nuvi or my SD card I don't see anything In my customised POI categories in the menu ? I presume this is not normal since your radar files are unlocked ?
What am I missing please ?

I think it's normal.
Cyclops Safety camera are not normal POI's.
You cannot make a search on one of them but if you drive on a road where there are Safety Cam, you will be warned when you approach.

Hi Pilou, Thanks for your input,
i suspected as much but what i don't understand is it doesn't show up in the nuvi at all no title.
I can't even tell if it was installed or not ???
