Don't use subtypes above 1f - (e.g. 2a or 20) they will break the search 
indexes on some units, and might even cause some GPS to not start up 
Also 20 will display exactly alike 10 (either like the inbuilt style - 
or like the icon you have defined for 10) at least on etrex.

If you run out of POI, simply use extended types (of course they are not 
searchable though). Else you run risk of bricking your GPS (if you put 
maps on internal memory, if on sd-card you can put whatever you want of 
course, but then don't be surprised if POI search or similar things 
don't work as expected anymore).
