    Hi everyone.

    Another question about the R-Link in my wife’s 2nd hand Zoe.

    She borrowed my car on Saturday to go to work (for various reasons) and I took hers to go and meet up with a mate.

    I needed to charge, so I looked in the Sat Nav for a charge point in a nearby large town – none were listed! I know there ARE charge points in the town, but I couldn’t remember the name of the one I wanted to use. I knew it was in a car park, so I looked up car parks in POIs – the nearest car park was in a town 13 miles away! Eventually I found the charging post just by driving around.

    This evening I used the R-Link software to update the system in my wife’s car – it looked like it had never been updated – and I noticed that in her R-Link “products” list, there were no maps listed (and yet they are listed for mine). SO I decided to buy the maps – a very cool £45! I installed the update and then went into POIs, searched for car parks in the same location as on Saturday, and still nothing!

    What the heck is going on here? Is it normal for data to be missing like that? If it was some pokey wee place in the middle of nowhere I’d understand, but this is a major town of around 16 thousand people! Ok, small compared to London, but still, you’d think they’d list SOME car parks in the maps!

    At the risk of stating the obvious, is it possible that the two ZOEs have different POIs set to display? IIRC you can switch each POI type on or off.
