Having picked up and looked at the wife's TomTom for the first time yesterday I decided to stick these bouldering POI's on them at the same time.

Checked a few for routes to Eastern Grit venues from home and it all looks good.

Good effort on compiling these Jim, much appreciated.  Will by trying out the ones for Font in a few weeks  :thumbsup:

Thanks, there will be another updated version coming out very soon. I'll be updating the font one to include every area on bleau.info now they have gps co-ordinates of the parking for each area on the web site, at the moment its just the ones in the 7+8's guide (new one)

Cool will keep an eye out for them in case you up them before I'm off.  Should come in very handy as I'm keen to check out some of the less frequented areas.

Just got back from font and used the POIs to find all the car parks. Totally amazing. Last time we kept getting completely lost. So a big thanks for sorting this out.  :thumbsup:

Got these working with Copilot 8 on Android (HTC Desire running 2.2)

Didn't work initially, not sure why, possibly due to the file name or a duplicate POI (there's one called 'ro' that duplicates one of the Rocher's)

Used http://www.poieditor.com/ to delete the duplicate and resave and it worked.

For info, Copilot should open .ov2 format natively, you put it and the .bmp file in the 'copilot/save' folder and next time you start Copilot it tries to install it.

Its dead easy to convert these POIs from OV2 to KML and then import them to Google Maps.  Hey presto, you have on your phones Google Map all the bouldering areas & can Navigate to them very easily.

Thanks to those who contributed the originals.
