olley Not all the 9000 odd sites were from members, Nuke bought a load just before he launched Icampsites, I remember that some members (me included) thought this was a backward step.

One of the problems that Nuke never managed to resolve was that Windoze machines machines were generally more successful with this App than MacBooks. Mine's a MacBook.

I transferred the data to my MacBook hard drive when I first bought it. As long as I enter my old MHF (OutDoorBits) password it works well enough. It's the mapping that fails totally. Still, with over 9000 campsites entered by our members (people I learned to trust) and reviews from returning members, it's too useful an application to ignore and bin. For me..........

I certainly agree that remembering to change the date, and finding where it was hidden in order to do so was a complete nuisance.



PS: For interest, I set the date to a month before 6th February 2015 (my previous successful update with new sites) and the App found 7 more sites. Goodness knows where they came from.

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.

ambegayo 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..

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

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.

paulmold 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 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.
