VP Update to fix missing Attributes and GC Owner

We all know that Magellan is working hard on making the GPS units work to their full capacity. And we all appreciate the effort. But part of the experience is getting all the info for your caches onto the unit.

Vantage Point doesn't transfer the Attributes, or the Cache Owner data when using the Sync feature, although it does send the cache page photos onto the unit. Are there any plans in the immediate future to fix these 2 minor issues ?

I'm not going to talk about GSAK in this post, as it's not what I want to use for geocaching. I know this CAN be done with GSAK, but unless Magellan wants to pay the price to remove the Nag thing after xx days, I won't use it. Besides, a 3rd party program should NOT be needed to use the unit to its abilities.

The tools are all there in VP to do this, there's just an issue with the transfer. Attributes and Cache Owner DO appear in VP when viewing the cache info, but they get lost in the transfer and are missing on the unit. The only way I've gotten all 3 items (pics, owner, attributes) on a cache is to use Send to GPS from the cache page on GC.com.

If the programmers could take a day or 2 to decode and fix this issue, it would be much appreciated.
