I am not going to publish the site I am using because that will be the quickest way to have page changed and the plugin will need to be changed or altered to stop us using this way.
Does this mean you use one of the above gps engines, feed it a lat/long (via KML file) from gps dongle, then gps engine gives you a postecode?

sorry for the hijack Michael. I think this is an interesting project. Cant wait to have fuel prices for Au!
No you feed it lat/lon via KML and you get a POI you can bring up in the GPS software.
I still don't get how you get post code from the lat/long as a poi in a gps engine. And once obtained, how does that post code return to your plugin? Just trying to learn from the masters
I understand what you mean.
We use the internet to convert the lat/log to postcode and vise versa.
once we have a pertol station lat/lon we then feed it into the GPS software for guidance.
It's also possible to use the GPS2City within RR (I think it's now a plugin), you would just need to compile a zips.dat file for your country.
post 10 in that thread has a link to postcode files for a number of countries.
I used the internet because it was assumed the internet was available for the rest of the plugin to work.
Great work, I am very interrested with your plugin, I have been in touch with Enforcer on his forum for the Australian prices, but I'm guessing the website I provided didn't have the right data or it was tricky to achieve.
I am not sure if you still need testers, but I would love to give it a go, I am using DFX5 so your skin file would do nicely
