I just played with the new garmin_gpi format to create POIs from
openstrretmap.org data. I noticed that gpsbabel makes POI names unique
by appending something like .1, .2, .3 and so forth. We even have a lot
of POIs without names in the database, e.g. people mapping a bank
simply as amenity=bank but omitting the name tag. Even if they tagged
the name, it would often read the same like "Royal bank of Scotland",
resulting in POIs like "Royal bank of Scotland.1", "Royal bank of
Scotland.2" etc. Not to mention supermarkets, parking places etc.
As Garmin allows for non-unique POI names, I wonder if this behaviour
can be changed or made configurable?
