Why bother? Just install both.

How much work do you anticipate to convert all the filenames?

Combine using something like Excel.

Hi Lincoln,

Unless you have a good reason (e.g. your SatNav has restricted number of POI categories that you can use), I'd just leave the POIs as they are.

The PGPSW camera database is regularly renewed (normally once a week) so you're going to have to regularly manipulate the POIs.

However, if you really need to then I'd import the POIS as .csv files and combine the files (via MS Excel) and then convert the .csv file to .ov2 file.

What computer are you using, Windows or Mac?

Regards,
Robert.
