sat nav question..

im a bit confused about my satnav... can anyone help?

when i go into p-o-i and choose restaurants,
then for example i choose by name and type mcdonalds, it seems to think the nearest mcdonalds is in holland! i know that we all crave a big mac from time to time, but not that much!

is one of the settings wrong or has anyone else experienced this?

That's very odd! Mine works fine as I actually used it to find McDonald's in Blackpool the other week. What version are you using?

I've never seen that problem before, but I'm sure it can be solved with the latest version installed

My old 3.05 set used to tell that my nearest pub was in France !!!

That was subsequently solved with newer disks.
