The GPSmap 276c used to exhibit this same duplicate waypoint behavior...
every GPWPL sentence that came it caused a new waypoint to be created that
was sequentially numbered.  I wrote Garmin about it, and they fixed it way
back in version 4.00.  Maybe writing garmin and mentioning this problem will
help expedite a fix for the NUVI series?

Changes made from version 3.70 to 4.00:

   - Corrected duplicate waypoint creation with GPWPL NMEA sentence

Failure is success if we learn from it.
