Just wonder these files are free of virus?
I have not had any problems with files from this site.
All the files that I downloaded were fine.
If you are worried, make sure you have the latest copy (and definitions) of antivirus.
100% safe.... if in doubt, save to a location on your computer and do a virus scan before opening the file.
If you are referring to the POI files, there is no executable code in them so they won't have viruses.
If you follow a link to a software program that loads or modifies files, those are executable files and you would want to virus check them. Although most of the links are for commonly used software within the GPS world and have a very low probability of containing viruses.
The .csv files are text files; and the chances of these being infected is virtually zero. (The files you have to be careful with are .exe files.) It's always a good idea to check the .csv file with a text editor to make sure it is, in fact, a text file and not an .exe file camouflaged with a .csv extension.
You can never be too careful. If you're working the internet without an updated anti-virus program, you're playing Russian Roulette. It would not be a matter of 'if' you're going to get a virus, it would be a matter of 'when'!
