    Have downloaded POIs to maps.me on my iPad many times. Just tried it and after 'copy to maps.me' it says 'Loading Bookmarks. Bookmarks upload failed. The file may be corrupted or defective'. In maps.me under 'Boookmarks' it says 'New files detected' and when I press 'Convert' it says 'Error Some files were not converted'. On the POI Download page it says I have 0 activated devices.

    The way in which the POI files are produced changed recently.

    I have tried the download and it fails as you describe. Sorry ...

    I have asked Phil to investigate.

    Can I ask if you are downloading these from the Maps.me section of the POI downloads page or from the POI Zip file?

    It's from the POI Downloads page, Phil.

    I have tried it and it fails as described.

    The issue is now resolved and I have tested all the POI downloads.

    For those interested...

    The new software does not output the character & in a way that maps.me likes. So changing it to & in the KML files fixes the issue.
    Thanks POI Admin thanked for this post

    POI Sets

    Hi

    I am really having difficulty using this app. I cannot get the POI sets to show up. I can get wcs to show up on the map but thats the only choice I get and not wild camp, pubs etc. What am I doing wrong? I really do need to be spoon fed!!!! Am I right in thinking that you can only use the app when you are in the location of where you want to stop? (see - totally oblivious or dumb!)
    Many thanks

    Please have a look at the app instructions which you will find here:

    If you are using the online POI Map you can choose which types of POI are displayed by clicking on the tabs beneath the map.

    If the tab shows green that type will be displayed. If grey that type is hidden.

    Still puzzled

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    Just to confirm I have the app on my Galaxy Samsung mobile. Everything appears to be ok except I cannot find the option to chose wildcamp, pub, taps, water. Is this available via my mobile or do I have to search these on my laptop via the maps.me? Sorry for being a pain...........

    Please ensure that you have installed the Wild Camping POI app from Play Store. There is an earlier version which is named Wild Camping which causes confusion on occasion.

    Have you referred to the instructions?

    These answer the question you have asked ...

    If you want to use maps.me on your phone please read the following thread:

    Using POI kml files with Maps.me - Maps with me.
