    My advice would be to post in the thread I gave a link to. This way everyone who took part in that thread will get an email notification of a new post. At least one of those participants has the answer you need.
    Use the "like" tab too and you will be more popular and attractive to responders :xlaugh:

    darren if the folder you need is not in the sat nav then you cannot just add the folder it wont work
    mine has sites already installed so check your as well
    put in a destination say benidorm once the sat nav finds it and starts then click search then custom search
    then pick at your destination
    then click accommodation then campsites see how many come up if any i have never had to add poi

    As you get to know other members it will become apparent who is adept at what and I am priviledged to get my Cinkynav sorted by another member for me. It would not be fair of me to say who as that may place a burden that is not welcomed. I would make all posts in the other thread that has a stronger subscription base and more likely for the clever folk to help

    Download the manual from the Resources Section here and follow the instructions. There are also some POI files here.
