    eehm.. no.. first i use some area around my home, which is in the UK.. but i presume there is no functional difference between european and usa version of mappoint in this aspect?

    the drivetimezone i made has plenty of locations in it, the ones that come with mappoint, eg. banks, petrol stations etc.
    it was my idea to get these "pushpins" in the recordset, not some pushpins i added myself beforehand.
    I tried to zoom in, but it didnt make any difference which zoom level i used, neither did the type of map: i usually have terain map but datamap didnt show any records either *sigh*
    i can find location objects with the findnearby method, but that gives such an ugly grid on my map.. so i try it with shapes as a last resort!
    so if the queryshape method works only with my own pushpins, can you let me know?

    thanks,

    mischka

    hmmm... bugger but thanks for the answer,at least i know now the problem is not in my programming-abilities...

    so, is there any other way to get all the "points of interest" within X geo-units around location Y? this excludes the findnearby, which makes the ugly grid on the map....

    thx
