Have you tried the POI download page to see what's there

http://www.pocketgpsworld.com/tomtompoi.php

You may need a converter for your unit

That link is dated now.

Have you tried the POIs at http://www.pocketgpsworld.com/modules.php?name=POIs

Under category Attraction, sub-category Theme Park.

I've just tried the POI File and Alton Towers takes me to the Car Park entrance.

Which file format are you downloading?

Is it the only POI category you're downloading?

Have you tried the Show Link Option?

Yes -- use Navman's PC software that you got with your unit.

Get CSV file (text file with comma separated values, one POI per row), Navman's desktop software will do the rest.

How do i do this.????

Navmans own site states that custom POI uploads can only be done on the Navman S50 and up. Not the Navman S30.


Custom POI
S30 NO
S50 YES
S80 YES
S90i YES


SO IF THIS IS THE CASE, MY ORIGINAL QUESTION STILL STANDS.
ANYONE KNOW HOW TO UPLOAD CUSTOM POI's ONTO A NAVMAN S30?
