Towns as POIs for Magellan Datasend

The zip file below contains sets of towns across SA and VIC, set-up as POIs for Magellan Datasend.

Iíve found them useful, but I donít know if they are compatible with later versions of receivers or Datasend - Iím using the GPS 315 and Datasend Ver 2. (Both of which I have had for about 5 or 6 years. Canít remember, exactly.) The same is true for the backgrounds that I up-loaded.

I might up-date one day (any suggestions?), but the 315 and my ancient laptop have served me well. Perhaps Iím too far behind the rest of the world. Oh well, someone might find these useful.

The POIs are divided into the sets described below.

The form of the file names are shown. Each set contains the bmp, dbf, nic, shp, shx and stb files. The descriptions give a rough idea of the area covered.
