Yeah - just delete any duplicates.

You may also find that some of the sites are not available now - I can't check them all

Indeed there is, our very own Richard Davies (Oldie in the forums) has authored POIConverter for this very purpose.

Download it here.

Try changing the CSV extension to ASC.

Or use Makeov2.exe, it's on my WWW ;)

Is there no way to import Points of Interest into destinator? the POI menu has a "near" function that would sort by distance nicely? the favorite menu "warns", so is better for speed cams, but such as WiFi would benefit from being a POI.

Tried both these software options. Unfortunately, I coule get neither to generate the correct file.

The first errored at the first line of code, the second could only generate the bmp Sad
