Hi John,

What system are you using?
Which country are you trying to download POIs for?

I'm currently using Firefox 8.0 on Windows XP and I can see and also download UK POIs from the web page.

Please try clearing the cache on your web browser. if that doesn't work try deleting all of the PocketGPSWorld cookies (this will mean that you need to sign back onto PocketGPSWorld) and try again.

Regards,

Hi,Privateer

Thank you for your reply.
Firstly I didn't mean to double post (slip of the finger)

I am trying to find the POI's for LPG stations/forecourts in the UK.
My system is Windows XP prof'.
I have been able to access these files before without problem, but now, for some reason. I no longer can. I get a message to say ' cannot access web page'.
I will try what you suggest and let you know.
Best Regards,
John

Something else that might be worth trying.

Try accessing the page with the PC firewall turned off. There might have been a setting changed somewhere.

Hi Oldboy,

Turning off the Firewall was one of the things I tried earlier, but that didn't solve the problem either.
I will try another search engine to see if that helps.......can't think of anything else!!!!

Yes, I'm a pedant but 'Firefox' and 'Internet Explorer' are Web Browsers and not Search Engines.

Just for info and future reference Very Happy
