For those of you who use TOM TOM sat navs, here's a POI file and CT image file that you can load up on to your device with all the RBRR Control stops.

It's in TOM Tom ov2 format. If you have another type of sat nav it should be possible to convert it using POI Edit software which is available for free download from:-  http://www.poiedit.com/downloads.htm

I had no luck converting the file to Garmin format using poi edit last time, fortunately my Sat Nav still has most of the control stops in it from 2012 that I put in using post codes and coordinates where post codes weren't available.

The post codes are shown in this months Club Torque.
The coordinates for those locations without post codes are in Andy's .csv file

Thanks, Andy.

This is his file converted to Navman. Even though it's the same as his and I've checked them myself I take no responsibility if it's wrong in your unit!

13/60 Herald - mx5 powered and other such fun things, legal enough...

If in doubt, do up until you hear the crack and then go another 1/4 turn to ensure tightness.

Chris,  
According to Mr. Google you can't for GO50. But I belive if you treat it as a hard drive . IE go to my computer and see the drive which probably be marked as Removable drive you should be able to open that and copy the file in there. But it will need to go in the correct folder. If you google it you should find out where to put it.

It may depend on the model whether the logo works or not. Mine is a Start 25 and it works as long as it has the same filename as the POI file and it's a .bmp file.

Useful web link, this takes you to the Tom Tom page with instructions of how to load POI files.   http://uk.support.tomtom.com/a.....-third-party-pois%3F

Unfortunatly the facility is not available on all TOm Toms, on the web page it states:-  "Note: This feature is not available on the following devices: START 40, START 50, START 60, GO 40, GO 50, GO 60, GO 400, GO 500, GO 600, GO 5000, GO 6000. "

According to the TOm Tom website the Go50 is one of the models that doesn't support POI files. Bit of a bummer that really!

Thanks for the file cookie - loaded it into our old TomTom!
Not that easy to choose a POI in the user interface - but we'll work it out as we go!

Mine is also a Start 25... I will rename the file then.
