Another Suggestion


I've done a lot of reading and there are a load of interests and resulting POI files here.

Now... on one of my journeys recently, I wandered past an RC Airfield and I have no idea if it's in the POI file we have for them.

Wouldn't it be nice if I could access the file on the site, do a simple search by name or coordinates, and determine whether or not the file needed my new info, without me having to load it (or even download it to my PC.)

You can open the file in

You can open the file in excel and take a look that way.

Miss POI

Just in case

Just in case you don't have excel here is a free viewer.

You get extra online tools as a file maintainer, allowing you to look into your own files that you are the caretaker of. When you start building POI's you will receive the tools and then have a better grasp of things. Plus you get a new badge.

Until then just use excel.

True but...

Doesn't that take up more bandwidth than a search?

I'm just thinking why download the entire file if it's not one I use... but I know others do.

For your own files using maintainer tools you can search for a custom poi and if found click on it and all the info comes up including coordinates.

Looks like that could also be included with all files as a search feature just to see data on a custom poi or if it missing.

To be honest though I may be wrong but I doubt if that many users would go that route.Pretty fast to just use the view part insteading of saving the file to your computer and do a search.
