    Agreed! Works very easily. (only problem was that the actual POI list I added was pretty hopeless once I got it running . . .)

    Hi @87Jessopp

    In what way was it hopeless?

    I installed a list of French picnic sites (downloaded from PocketGPSworld) that turned out to have only 3 picnic sites listed

    Hi @87jason87

    Just had a quick look on the PocketGPSworld website and it appears that the file you have downloaded is dated 26/06/2012 and only has 3 sites on it. When you look at the individual files you are given a date and number of POI's on the file.

    Thanks. Useful for future attempts but it was the only listing I could find. I then looked for 'aires de pic-nic' instead of 'French picnic sites' and found literally thousands (with a number of duplicates of course) on several sites and the http://169.254.255.1/pcmi/?locale=en_gb link above worked perfectly again
