Well done, Dave and all at the site.

I've just downloaded and setup POI Edit and I must say what a clear and concise walkthrough. I am new to PDAs as well as GPS (I've got a HP2210 and a GlobalSat 307 CF) and am finding this site to be one of the most comprehensive and helpful.

Keep it up!

Hi there - great sight by the way - really excited about the whole POIs for TomTom. Only problem is is that the link isnt working - does someone have a mirror or a different link?

Thanks in advance

Nope, nothing we did as we don't operate the dnote.nl website, and the website has been operational all last week and over the weekend, so it's probably a localised problem with your ISP not routing traffic to the website correctly.

Does POI Sync have only data for UK or for US as well? I haven't seen any good POI databases for TomTom for US? Any links out there?

It covers the entire Europe and USA, but most of the POI's do tend to be in the UK.

Who contributes most POIs? Is it just end users or it's actually purposefully collected? It would be really nice to get a large US POI database, but not sure how to do that? Does POI-Sync need more advertisement in the US?

We added a huge selection to start the ball rolling but most of the additions lately are from end users.

So how can it be increased for US? Looks many people don't know about it here.

If you find any POI's or locations that have lat/long addresses we can add them to the sync service.
