    How can I generate a list that has all the (US) locations for a particular store brand (i.e. RadioShack)?

    Thanks

    Go 720
    Still isn't working...

    EDIT: That Java App is PHENOMENAL! Making POIs is pretty easy with that thing!

    Rusty,
    Email sent.

    MyPOI is the easiest method to get POIs but not the most accurate. I prefer contacting the Vendor and asking for a spreadsheet list of all their locations. If I have that, I can modify the spread sheet and save it as a .csv file. Then use POIedit to convert it to a .ov2 file. Then I have a complete list of actual company. I've done this with a few POIs such as Starbucks.

    Is there a certain number of mile radius you can input or a max number of results found. I have tried large mileages just to test it out and it is only pulling up locations that are very close to the city I type in.
