Just made some changes so that everything (POI, CSV, GPX, TOPO, MyMaps) works from one page...

All types can now be run statewide, whereas some formats previously supported smaller data sets only.
Also made the elevation ranges and county selects dynamic based on state chosen.

One more subtle change is files are no longer stored on the filesystem, so they are sent as headers to your browser, prompting you to open or save (old method had right-click on a link to save the file locally). The reasoning here is that files will not overwrite before you get a chance to save them if someone else is writing to the same filename with their export. Not sure if that has ever happened yet, but it is quite possible, especially with increased traffic on the site.
I plan to change all file exports/downloads to this method except the personal peaklist download.

Let me know if any issues arise on different browsers (tested in Firefox 3.6 and IE 8... ) or if other issues come up.
