Unfortunately I'm stuck with IE7


Can you not install another browser? Such as Opera or Mozilla Firefox?

Thanks Paul, just loaded Firefox and quite impressed by it as a browser and all the POIs downloaded first time.

Excellent :D

I am also having problems. Traffic Camera POIs load easily on both my Tom Tom and my Garmin.

However the new POIs download an unrecognisable file. I tried to download a group and single files. I get the same result. NO OV2 or CSV files and no bmp files

I am using Explorer 6 sp2 to download.

I don't know what else to do

By the way this new scheme is a fantastic one.

as I said we have a fallback solution ready but we want to try to fix the IE issues first. In the meantime, can you use an alternative browser for the downloads?

Maybe 'm teaching my grannies to suck eggs, but one can adjust IE7 to work with some websites better using MS User Agent String Utility version 2 available free from microsoft from here

The BTYahoo! browser also fails to download these POI's correctly.

However, I downloaded Firefox 2 (as suggested) and no problems at all.

Not criticising, just requesting information on whether updates will be compatible with poi edit

I have now downloaded Firefox and have no problems with downloading. However it is not my preferred option but it works as a stop gap
