POI grouping in 'Find'

The PIO are grouped in to categories, these may have a second layer menu/selection if there are sufficient PIOs to warrant it. In the second level menu, some of the POIs are 'greyed out' indicating that there where none of that category in the current/active map (I therefore assume that there are no more POIs grouped into that top level category, although there may be more top level categories which are unseen at the moment).
