POI Downloads Get An Upgrade!


Article by: maft
Date: 27 May 2010

pocketgpsworld.comThe POI download area has had an upgrade. We can now offer even more formats for you to use! Previously we only offered OV2 (for TomTom and CoPilot) and CSV (for Garmin etc).

You can now download the POIs as ASC files (for Navman etc), Tab Delimited files (for McGuider and Sygic) and KML files (for iGO, NDrive etc).

We may also add further formats in the future.

Good work guys. Although I only have a TomTom, I know that a lot of work must have gone in to arranging this.

You all deserve a medal! First

I'm a TomTom user but I know a few friends who will be pleased by this.

Now, how about adding the ability for registered users to save a favourite list of POIs so we don't have to go through and select them all each time? Pretty please ;-)

I notice that TYRE has the functionality to check for updates to your installed POIs, but I don't understand how it works. Can this be used here?

'select all' would likely kill the server, or your browser!!

do you REALLY want all the categories?!

Would it not be possible to have a programme on our own computers that could go through our list of POIs and download them automatically from the POI site.

A question which has been asked many times and sadly the answer is no. Something to do with the way the database is managed...

What about an RSS feed to show when each category has been updated, to save having to check which ones are new?
