Typical Screen Shot of MagWay (1.1.0)

|Added the ability to set the datum used in your GPS. TAKE CARE, see the|
datum notes in the readme.txt file.

Here are some waypoint files to play with:
London Underground stations - 270 records
Scottish Munroes (peaks over 3000' high) - 517 records
UK Motorway Junctions and Service stations (zip file) 
 This is based on Garmin data originated by Paul Ross, I have updated it for recent motorway name and junction number changes around Manchester. I've also split it up into individual files, one for each motorway to keep the number of waypoints you need to upload more manageable.
