Important Note

The data for outside the US is badly out of date. It is recommended that you do not use these databases for anywhere outside of the US.


I've changed the extension schema as of 05Aug2006. If you use a program like EasyGPS or GPSBabel which doesn't use the extended schema, this won't make any difference. But if you're using or writing a program that uses the extended schema, it may need to be updated. By the way, if you're writing a program that uses the extended schema, let me know.
