But how do you show opening times / where to get the ket on the POI as viewed on TT for example.

What about:Thame Radar,Market Car Park,Key at Cab Office. I am sure this will show when poi highlighted, perhaps someone could post the limits for text within the Mainentry, I am sure this would help to configure an entry.

You could put the contact telephone number on the POI. Most people would realise ( they would wouldn't they?) that the public loo has not got a phone, so it must be a contact number.


Yep, but I was posting this and other toilets before this became an issue, i could go further, i have submitted 'automatic' (the coin operated type) toilets some are disabled and others are not, some are side by side. But there was not an option to distinguish between them.
As for the RADAR, like I said, they were less than helpful in the first place, and i wasn't sure I could supply a phone number as they wanted me to pay for the data and list.

I am trying to add a Public Loo on A35. It's not really near any major location, so do I just name it after the nearest (as the crow flies) village or nearest Town via the road please.

MaFt has solved the problem with capitalisation - he has set the code to automatically capitalise each word in the Title Field. Saves you thinking Wink

1315 locations so far - keep 'em coming!

I believe he's rigged up a system where a big hand emerges from the perpetrator's computer and clips 'em round the ear! Razz

As a child of parents who are getting on a bit, I spent quite some time finding public toilets in various towns of New Zealand when i took them there for a holiday.
I will read up on how to post them. They can be confirmed using the Wises online maps http://www.wises.co.nz/ or the very good Kiwimaps road atlases.

EDIT: Posted first antipodean one, so will continue to post all the ones I can remember!


I have now updates the NZ toilet list to include a total of 94 khazis, so relief is at hand....
