I think I know the answer to this but worth asking anyway -
Is it possible to somehow combine several different POI categories into one and thus save space for further POI categories. For example can merge all the Asda, Tesco & Sainsbury POIs into one and just have Supermarkets; or all the filling stations? If I am away and need petrol I am not fussy where it comes from but it seems a shame to use up half a dozen POI categories for Texaco, BP, Shell, Esso, Q8, etc if I can merge them.


Just a thought.....

Are you asking about the default TT POIs or custom ones you have added? If the former, No, if the latter, Yes (Search the forums for DumpOV2 & MakeOV2).

Also POIConverter from http://rjdavies.users.btopenworld.com/html/poiconverter.html is good.

Have you tried the combined File from my WWW?

Many thanks indeed Oldboy :D :D That is very helpful and your website is now bookmarked for future updates!

I am currently going through my 'wish-list' of POIs that I would like to add and their likely usefulness. It is gradually getting shorter. I have also deleted the Speed Camera Continental as there were none close to me and it refused to navigate me to them also.
