    Yes it is a database - currently just under 2,500 spots throughout England, Wales and Scotland. And the next release will have lots more

    I have attached the readme file so you can learn more - and yes it is fine on a Mac ...

    Google maps not happy

    Hi,

    I've got the Google maps on my PC and downloaded the fantastic set of POIs. Everything works fine until I click on the "tinyurl.com" bit of a POI and then Google encounters a problem and insists on shutting down. Any ideas?

    Check that you've got the latest version of Google Earth installed - go to Help, Check for Updates Online.

    If you have the latest version, try uninstalling it and reinstalling it.

    If that doesn't work, use Google to search for the specific error message that you get on screen.

    Good Luck!

    Regards

    Chris

    key to POI map

    This isn't a reply, more an 'adding to' ...I can't work out how to create a new post. I don't know what the symbols on the Google Earth map mean. 'PH' is obvious but 'CU' etc baffle me. Please can someone enlighten me ?

    If you click on "POI Downloads" at the top right of this page, you'll find this....


    CR - car park rural
    CU - car park urban

    LR - layby rural
    LU - layby urban

    OR - other rural location
    OU - other urban location

    PH - pub stopover

    The prefixes are particularly useful on a satnav to help you choose a location that is suitable for you.

    The prefix is followed by the place name.

    All descriptions have the county name appended.

    If it's a pub stopover, the description includes the pub name after the location name.

    If a location is accessed from a dual carriageway, the description includes the direction of travel for access.

    Comments have been added where useful. These are only accessible in Google Earth and AutoRoute.

    For example, the comments contain information about:

    - Places that charge
    - Access restrictions
    - Pub phone numbers
    - Toilet facilities
