How do I get a location from only coordinates in EPE?

I was trying to put Long/Lat in Extra-POI-Editor. I know how to get the Long/Lat using the address part. But is there a way to do it if I only know the coordinates?

Most recent POI files (sort by date added/updated)?

Is there a way, for example, to see all POI files added or updated within the last few weeks? I can see the most recent 5, but I would like to see them for the past specific period.

Need help with a collection of POI's *Travel Guide to the USA*

As of recently, I have been creating my own POI's for a "Travel Guide to the USA" collection. My basic standpoint would be a collection of POI's and then subcategorize them by individual databases. EX: Fastfood, historical spots, museums, toll roads, rest stops, major gas stations, shopping centers, and so forth.

Gas Prices

As I filled my gas tank today at $3.23.9 cents a gallon I wondered what happened to the $5 "DOOM & GLOOM" prophesy to come?.
As you GPS people transverse the USA today I want to inform you of how much in federal and state taxes you pay in each state for each gallon not effected by the Wall Street Speculators. This is cents per gallon.

Alabama 39.3
Alaska 26.4
Arizona 37.4

Texting while Walking Banned in NJ

Smartphones are getting smarter these days. Too bad we can't say the same about the users.

Avid texters beware: Fort Lee, N.J. police said they will begin issuing $85 jaywalking tickets to pedestrians who are caught texting while walking.
