Why is it that CVS Pharmacy is not available???

 

Let me re-phrase that... Why is it that the CVS file that exists contains just a few locations? (I was looking at the csv file, not gpx)

????

Would love to swap out Wallgreens which is convienet, but we don't regularly use..... for CVS (which we use often)

Walgreens for CVS

I used CVS for years, my insurance to wanted me to switch to Walgreens.
I tried that and found Walgreens was a lot cheaper for the same script.
CVS was a lot closer to me but the difference in price makes up for it.

Yes, it pays to shop around. Even with insurance.

Yer right

Yep. My wife and I have used Walgreens for several years and are really happy with their prices.

It appears that one file has not been updated since 2008 and the other not since 2014.

ALL POI files are made by someone, using his/her time and resources to make a POI file.

Since you want the newest, maybe you can take the file over and keep it updated ! Try and contact the last updater for his/her OK !

I wouldn't have a clue as to how to do it...

I contributed data to a writer for a POI years ago, only to find out a month or so later that he and I were using two different styles of co-ordinates.... Now that was painful!

Compared to you I have only been a member here for half your time.
I have taken over a couple of "ORPHANED" or dormant POI files and also created some of my own making !
