I can download some combined POIs (ATMs for example) but others (Food & Drink for example) give me a 'web page is not available in Chrome, FF & IE. I've tried this now at work and at home on different ISPs, same error.

If I don't combine they are all fine.

any ideas?

Thanks

JP

are you exporting them as ov2 files? if so then there is a limit of around 22 sub-categories so we'd recommend expanding the food and drink bit and selecting fewer sub-categories.

I did wonder that but it seemed to work for some of the others with more than 20 sub cats... oh well.

thanks for reply

If you download the POI files in batches of 20 sub categories and then concatenate (DennisN hates that word Laughing ) the downloads back to a single POI file using POIEdit (click the red text for the download) you will have a single POI category with everything in it.
Use the File open and select the first downloaded POI file then use File/ Append to concatenate the the other downloads in to a single entry - Mike

I did think about doing that. I downloaded POIEdit earlier.

Just a couple of questions if I may?

1, do I have to append a file one at a time?

2, what happens to the .bmp icons if do this?

Thanks

You can use the File/ Append control as many times as you want prior to saving the resultant creation with all the locations stored in it.

As for the bmp files each of the downloads will contain a single bmp file that will be the same so just use one of them - As long as the resultant POI file name exactly matches the bmp file name the device will associate the two files automatically - Mike

Right... That makes sense now

Thanks both for your help
