POI Error Correcting (Love's Travel Stops)

 

cool I have noticed there are errors on the Love's Travel Stops POI. I am willing to make the necessary changes to the file. I am not so sure which is the best method to make the changes. I have downloaded the Excel file and I am very familiar with Excel. My question is which is the easiest and fast way to reference all of the coordinates within the file? I can look them up on google maps and correct them one at a time. Is this the only way? I do not have MapSource(I have also read how to get around this on this site but i cant find it) and currently cannot find it on the net for download. cool

Much Appreciated !

If you know the address of the incorrect place use this: to get the coordinates:

Perhaps I am missing something

On my way up I81 I noticed when I got to the Tom's Brooks Love's it was sending me way out of the way. I again noticed this on another Love's location.
Earlier today I went to Google Maps and put in the address and it showed the correct location. I am assuming it is based on the coordinates while I am traveling and not the actual address. The coordinates appear to be to the center of Tom's Brook and not the address. cool
