Here's the disclaimer page for the Kamloops data:

You're right about the tags. i will clean up those before I go any farther.
I also won't get around to adding more data right away, besides I want to
hear everyone's opinions first.

Either of you have an opinion on a good GPS that plays well with OSM?

Thanks for replying.
