          the source is the zips.dat file that should be included with the plugin. Open that file and you'll see a sequence of zip codes with their associated information. If such a database existed for the entire world, it could be easily adapted.

          Also, in order for the labels to populate you have two options. Either run the LOCATE command, or go into the rr.ini file and set localdatacaptureinterval to 1. This will update the labels once per minute.

            It's possible to do it for other countries but you would need internet access.

            I do this sort of thing in Fuelprices.

                sure, it could be done via geocaching, but that would require full time internet to be reliable. Consider that when i first made this feature available to RR back in like 2006, internet was in short supply in the car

                  your file does not have the proper categories, pretty sure you need 7 columns, you only have 5

                  The plugin works just fine. Just tested it. All i did was install the plugin, start RR, run LOCATE command and CURRENTCITY populated "Centreville"

                  Again, if a public database, online or offline, were available this plugin could be a bit more flushed out. I could query the nearest 100 zip codes each time internet were detected for example, but i do not have any information on where that would be available.

                      Possible zips.dat for France

                      pierrotm777, Give this a try and see if it works for France. I used that site you linked to, and think that I have it set up correctly.

                      BACKUP YOUR ZIPS.DAT BEFORE PUTTING THIS ONE IN THE RR FOLDER.

                      If this does work, then it is a viable solution for the countries available on that site.

                        Possible zips.dat for England

                        Enforcer, you can give this one a try for Great Britain. Make sure to back up the original zips.dat of course


                        Either one of these, France and England, are only going to be as good as the data that is supplied in that database of course.

                          not to mention, the plugin doesnt use the zips.dat file in the RR root!
                          it uses the one with the plugin...
                          -Thanks

                              yes the zips.dat goes in the main plugin folder, NOT the profile mode documents folder.
