For anyone who may be interested, I have created a POI overlay for Maplin stores in mainland GB. I've done this using the addresses/postcodes from www.maplin.co.uk and coverted the postcode to longitude/latitude - may not be 100% accurate, but pretty accurate on the locations I know. I have submitted the files to PocketGPS but they haven't appeared on the site (yet?). In the meantime you can download them here.

Tim, I probably do have your email here, I just have a backlog of over 200 emails I'm trying to sift through which is taking a little time.



I'll whitelist you when I find your message which means messages will be highlighted quicker when they come in.

By all means send it to me and I'll add it to the TomTom POI page we have.

One of my interests is STEAM TRAINS and I am part way to producing a TTN POI file and logo with as many UK sites included as possible.

I currently have found about 50 locations where you can actually ride on a steam train, both full size and narrow gauge, and plotted these. Within a few days this should include about 75, with position checked as precisely as possible.



If there would be an interest I will copy files to Dave when they are ready????????

Are you aware of Miniature Railways of Britain ? They have some good A to Z links of sites there with full addresses.
