Odd App not Ready for Primetime

I have Garmin’s Fenix 2 which I love but find it does not locate the points of interest by my home. I simpy want to download some POI but instead the app asks me to create a file on my on my computer so I can download CSV files from my computer to the Fenix 2 watch. This does not make sense. I agree with a previous reviewer that Garmin should have the points of interst uploaded. So far I see this as a worthless app. Can anyone enlighten me? If POI actually exist somewhere on the Internet, where do I locate them. This app in my mind needs to be thought through. I look forward to a revamp of this app.

Out of Date

Web version has been updated to v2.3.0 since December 2013! I don’t understand why the developer hasn’t submitted an update that’s a year and a half old now.

Quick and Easy

This is not totally worthless, and in fact is needed if you use trapster. I'm glad this program will add the csv files (and remove them) with no fuss, and without trying to sign me up for a bing or google toolbar. haha
