  • OCDE "Reference Point or Stage" has inconsistent mappings to GC (Reference Point) and OKAPI (Stage)
  • OCPL has two different GPX generators used in different contexts, that produce an inconsistent POI symbol
  • OCPL mixes Garmin (e.g. "Flag, Green") and Groundspeak symbols
  • Garmin symbols are not compatible with Groundspeak symbols
  • Trailhead is missing in OKAPI
