I have downloaded the zip file of POI's from here and tried to open it with WinZip on Windows and stuffit on mac.

WinZip says "Cannot open file; it does not appear to be a valid archive"

Stuffit just creates a duplicate zip folder.

What am I doing wrong? I have done this in the past but I can't remember how I did it.

Help please.

Have you tried a new download? Sometimes they can get corrupted for some reason or other.

Have you tried Ticking the Show Link Option?

How many Categories and how many SubCategories in each are you downloading?

Is it OV2 or CSV file types?

Yes, I tried the show link option.

One categories with two sub categories.

CSV file types.

On another note...

I have just bought a Garmin Nuvi 1340 and I have read about people having problems when installing too many POI's.

What is the maximum amount of POI's I could install without encountering any problems?


Many thanks.

Not a lot more to say, I'm afraid....

All I can suggest is trying the download itself (rather then just the unzipping)on another computer if you haven't tried that already.

I just tried test downloads of
1. just the Bed and Breakfasts in the "Accomodation" section,
2. the entire Accommodation Section - Separated and
3. the entire Accommodation Section - Combined into one file

....all with or with out using the "Show link" button.

They all downloaded and unzipped fine, with a simple right mouse click and selecting "Extract all".

Yeah, I've tried it on a macbook and a windows laptop.

WinZip gave the error I stated in the first post and stuffit on the mac just creates a seconed zip file.

Got a friend coming round later with his laptop to give it a go for me as this site wouldn't work earlier on another friends windows millennium desktop.

I'm going away to Belgium and Holland on the 31st and a few POI's for different things would be of great help.
