I have read this e-mail, and I just wanted to write back and thank you for your response.
I do enjoy creating routes from my home to States that I will be visiting, so often I will do this just to see where it is that I am going.
So, I appreciate your imput and response to my enquiries.
Thanks, and happy Easter.

You are my kind of guy. Thanks for reading the documentation.Although the ReadMe specifies a limit of 75 POIs, I will update the documentation to emphasize even more clearly that the the total number of files for the US is more than 75. I am actually pleasantly surprised that someone other than myself cared about such a long route.
The 35Documents zip does have the manuals in KWT, TXT and Doc
Listers be aware that we do update the documentation as we findthings to improve. Although we can't change the manual file inside your BrailleNote, we will update the document and ReadMe files and repost them.
Mostly, it is the ReadMe that I will update. Mike

But since each of the 66 maps has 2 POI's a core and a bonus that is 132 poi files excluding any other commercial user poi files you may have as well. The system will only load the first 75 POI files it finds.
