    I've tried dowloading this on two seperate computers and each time I get message "the compressed (zipped) folder is invalid or corrupt".
    Am I doing something wrong?

    sorry, I can't help, I've checked and it downloads and opens ok

    compressed using windows vista

    the other method is to go to the google map , download the kml data and convert using POI converter

    to do this copy this string &output=kml and paste to the end of the map url .. press reload and the file downloads

    I dont have any problem in unzipping the file however when I unzip it I'm shown two icons.

    One being named maps, and the other being named maps Ov2.

    How do I then load these to my tom - tom or am I totally off beam ?

    Hi Jim .. that is correct

    one is the icon for the poi
    the other the ov2 data

    copy both and paste into the poi files on TT ..

    here is a tutorial

    just follow these steps:

    1. Make sure your TTG is connected to your PC via the supplied USB cable. Make sure your TTG is recognised as a "removable disk" in your windows explorer. It might also be a good idea to plug in the power adapter to prevent the TTG from loosing power during the installation. This isn't required though;
    2. Use windows explorer to copy the .ov2 and .bmp files to your TTG. Copy these files into the folder on your TTG that contains the maps of the country you want to use the POI's with. Eg. in case I've downloaded a POI file with all the MacDonald restaurants in Belgium, I will have to copy "macdonalds.ov2" and "macdonalds.bmp" file into the "\Benelux Navigator Map" folder. In case these are POI's meant for use in France, I'll have to copy them into the "\France Navigator Map" folder. Etc.;
    3. After having copied all the .ov2 + .bmp files that you want, disconnect your TTG from your PC;
    4. Now you'll have to activate these POI's. For this, go to the "changing preferences" menu. Tap "maintain POI" (second preferences menu). Tap "enable/disable POI". Scroll down until you reach the POI that you've just added. If everything is ok, it will be in the list. Tap on the POI so that it gets checked. Tap "done";
    4. If you also want to be warned by means of an auditive signal when you reach this POI, then tap "warn when near POI" in the "maintain POI" menu and just go through all the steps. For more info on this, check out the first part of this POI special.
