That looks fine to me Mike.

Is email the default option, because that will mimic the apps out there at present?

Email is just a tap away.

You type in a name, some details then choose how to send:

These are the options I have, most people will at least have email.

Very good app easy to use.

Very good app easy to use.

Just a reminder, or advice for newer members, this thread tells you how you can submit new locations easily whilst on your travels this Summer ...

Thank you :D

Just downloaded the app but it runs constantly and will chew my battery life down so uninstalled it. Like the idea and be happy to use it if can you let me know if there is any way to stop it and only go when l want? I would consider the pro if it can be stopped from always on. Even clicking stop tracking and stop (forgotton other one) it was still tracking :sad:

Which app are you using? I presume it's the GPS that's left on and reducing your battery life ...

Thanks ALSO Navigate

Another free app for Android (maybe others) navigation system.
Not as fully featured as TomTom etc BUT It is free.
You need to download the map of the country you are in.


Maybe good if you do not want to buy extra maps for your satnav for a 1 off visit somewhere.
Once you have downloaded a map it works without internet connection

The POI download includes files for use with Tom Tom, Garmin, Navigon and Navman.

That said, many sat nav devices use the Tom Tom OV2 format, or can import Google Earth KML format files which are also provided.

What make of sat nav do you have?

Mio Moov M410/M610 Series
If this one is no good could always buy a Garmin or Tom Tom if they are better as OH just wants to stay in England for now and Scotland:(

The User Manual for your device says that CSV and KML format files can be imported to create custom POIs (see page 42).

I suggest you try with the KML format first. CSV format files come in different formats and the MIO manual doesn't specify the format required.

Sorry for not replying earlier.
I have a TomTom sat nav with its attendant software.
I also use Google Earth (KML as you know) and Mapsme on my android. Samsung 10in Tablet

I have a easy program on my PC called TOMTOM POI editor.
It obviously does Ov2 files but you can also import from KML and export to KML (and others)

Your Multiformat POI set is excellent and I guess you have a similar "GPS interchange" facility
