Has anyone tried organising POIs into subcategories on an i3. I've tried loading POIs from MaFt's site and the various categories show up but inside those categories I found a single unsorted list instead of separate entries for eg travelodge. I then thought that maybe new folders for the individual subcategories were needed, but if you do that POIloader reports that the folder contains no suitable files. Is this a bug or does this feature not work properly on the i3?

I'm not sure - it's not in the list of new features, but then the list is from 2.3.5 to 2.4.1, whereas the previous list of features is from 2.3.1 to 2.3.2, so it may have been added to the never released "2.3.5" version.

I may try it to see, but it won't be for a while.
