Hi I raised this in another thread, but nobody seemed to have the issue?!
I've seen on yourtomtom this issue discussed a little, and thought I'd start this as a new topic.

I have noticed that poi's are only displayed within 50 miles of the location I give, either home, current, or city.
I thought it was user created ones as i put friends and family into poi (from favourites) before updating - yes at last an update..., and couldn't see the furthest away ones.
But I've checked and if i say look for airports in Birmingham i don't get any in London or Manchester, and if i use London, then i only get those round London, and the magic figure seems to be just short of 50miles.
Now I don't recall my old tt working this way, and in fact if i edit a poi (user created) then i see all.
I have raised a query with TT, and they say there is no distance limit on poi's.
Anybody know if I'm doing something wrong here?
Thanks
PS it's a 1000 europe

You raised this issue in another thread and Anita gave you a link for a thread that was already discussing it. Specifically this thread Look for Tomos post at Mon Feb 21, 2011 4:04 pm

As the issue is being discussed there i'll lock this thread as there is no need for another one.
