The Jollyinteresting site is only a source of waypoint data (or POI
stuff as everyone seems to want to call it these days).

Any display/show nearest will be a function of the GPS device.

Try going to this site and search for POI's (point of interest)

http://www.pocketgpsworld.com/

I have got a Tomtom one and have inputted all the CC,CCC, CC.cls and CCC.cls
sites
You can also download speed camera sites
I believe that Garmin are covers as well as Tomtom. Tomtom ones are on offer
at a very good price at Argos at the moment and Halfords also have offers
available.

Cheers

Also pushpins for loads of French sites.
Friend bought that latest Garmin 2720 in Florida and returned it to the
store. Had been told that European mapping would cost $140 but it's
closer to $300.
Also, it's only alive when powered from the car socket or a mains
adapter. That's a lot of use when you want to locate the car in a theme
park, or go on a bike ride.

Yep ..... charging in car only is very naff idea and limits use(s) a fair
bit. Also, the screen on the less expensive Garmin range is small and I
understand the battery, once charged, only lasts a couple of hours (don't
know about the more expensive models).
