If I remember correctly, the Edge 705 also shows truck stops in the fuel station menu. I look forward to GPS hardware becoming mainstream in mobile phones. Then the likes of GpsMid allow us to implement all sorts of features we might like: POI warnings, speed warnings, even multilingual map (you could select the map language, and it would display the selected name:* in your preferred order (say, name:de, name:en, int_name, name). For me, the Edge 705 is just a stopgap measure until someone makes an open source programmable replacement that is suitable for bicycle use. Marko PS: I repurposed the translation of amenity=recycling too. I guess that the POI code is meant to mark the offices of electricity companies and the like, for those people who drive by car to drop a cheque to pay their bills. :-) The menu item is "Versorgung" (supply), not "Entsorgung" in the German Edge 705.
