I've searched but no joy (possibly the wrong search terms, Laughing Out Loud), so here's a few questions for you lot Smile

Is there a maximum number of POI files that can be handled by the igo8 software for PDAs?

Have igo fixed the SPECS area recognition problem yet?

Does the latest UK & Ireland map fix the central reading road priorities that happened early last year around the Oracle shopping centre area?

Thanks in advance Smile

No Sad They still think they only come in pairs.

Nav'N'Go don't publish a value, it would probably be the same as the database engine that handles the map poi's so it's not going to be a restrictive issue for anyone.

OK, thanks. Here's the problem though: I'm likely to use something like 20-30 POI files on a regular basis over the next year, including the PGPSW UK files; a definitive number would therefore be nice to know - does anyone actually know, or should I approach their sales people and ask (possibly having to wait a while for the answer) Question

I don't think you'll get a definitive answer, I've tested it with more than 300 categories, it just takes progressively longer to load all the categories in the background. Approximately 2-3 minutes for 300 and of course with only 4 categories per page that's around 80 pages of POI's.

The ultimate limiting factor will almost certainly be the device and not software.

ok, that's good news Smile Thanks - I'm hardly likely to use/load more than 30 or so, Laughing Out Loud Smile

OK, finally, anyone got any info on the latest maps? Have they updated the roads to reflect the new one-way and buses only routes in Reading?
