I kept away from your hyperlink, but I've checked my iCampsites USB Edition database as purchased from OurDoorBits.

It still contains 9465 campsites, although when I logged in with my old ODB password it told me there have been no new updates since 6th February 2015.

I can still find sites using "Search by Type" or "Filter" but not when using the "Map" option.

The link was just to download the Safari browser as far as I could see John.

Yes, Kev, but the only safe place to update Safari is from the "App Store".

The linked download is listed on Google as being potentially dangerous which I why I kept well away.

My USB version went in the bin shortly after this site changed hands as it wouldn't update and in fact wouldn't search either.

I usually go straight to the programs web site for anything these days, then follow any link they have, carefully checking each OK button.

I got no warning at all, and Virgin is usually very good.

Sorry I may have not made myself clear, the point was that the 'compass' design on the USB
campsite database fob was exactly the same as on the safari internet search engine. Pretty pointless really but they did use it for the design of the fob. I felt it was a waste of money!! Those who had one will know what I am referring too..

My USB one still works and still updates - although the number of updates has dropped markedly....

Updating was always a bit hit or miss as you had to manually change the day of entry for some reason..... there is a screen where you have to enter and OLD date, in place of the current one as otherwise it checks for updates today - and funnily enough, that is usually zero....

No idea about the artwork - it really never worried me and the bulky nature of the rubber case was a PITA as far as I am concerned.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.
