Must Waypoints be named?

1 post in this topic

A couple of days ago, I sent my ExpertGPS file to my new Garmin.  I wanted to remove a LOT of waypoints, so I erased the .gpx files I had sent to the GPS. I used Windows File Manager to delete the files. It deleted all of them that I uploaded on 6/18/2016.  I tried to send to the GPS but got a message that I need to name my waypoints. I did not get this message when I sent to the GPS on 6/18/16.  Is there a way to turn off this message and make the transfer anyway?

I am a real estate agent and most of my waypoints are points on lot boundaries. I sometimes name them but most often do not.  The download box says I have 1237 waypoints.

Another question:  I would like to show names on some of my waypoints but do not want the "active log" labeled. Is there a way to shut this off and still show the waypoint names?  It seems to me there should be a way to turn off the labels on a track by track basis.
