I have just downloaded Mapopolis demo maps for london to compare with my Garmin Emap since they both share navtech's maps, I noticed there are no shopping centres ie no Lakeside shopping centre, bluewater, Brent cross shopping centre also there are no cinemas(movie theater). I am missing something here.

Which type of maps have you loaded? Make sure to use the NC version (the one with the biggest size) not all map types include all POIs.

Generally speaking - Mapopolis may not have such a great POI coverage. But their map accuracy is unsurpassed, at least in the US. (I am not talking about map completeness, just about accuracy!)

Thumbs Up I actually downloaded the NC demo for London area , about 4 in all and looking through the download area was the section for the platinum place guide, I downloaded the London version but on looking at the file seems its the same as the file (platinum map gps.) for London.

I ‘have come to the conclusion there isn’t one for Europe just yet. I am just about to send an email to their tech-support.

Apart from the issue above, Mapopolis Rocks. I will keep the emap for the Points Of Interest till I get a confirmation from Mapopolis that there is a European version of (platinum places guide).

The Demo Navigator maps (NC) contain all the info. If it's not in there then it's not yet included. Probably also a question of money. Mapopolis is relatively cheap, and somewhere they must have saved when purchasing map attributes from NavTech.

you are quite right, i will recommend this software to anybody who doesn't want to pay too much for a navigator software...

i think not including any cinemas for the whole of the uk amongst other things may have being oversight or a simple mistake.

i hope am wrong

just an update to the query above, i just received an reply from mapopolis

they confirmed that they are no platium place guides for the uk.
which means no petrol statiions , cinemas or shopping centres.

well it looks like i will have to try designator 3 or copilot 4.

If the POIs are the most important item for you then you should go for Destinator 3 - they have the most POIs

after reading various forums on (copilot and destinator 3)
i have decided to stay with mapopolis
i think i found a solution to the poi issue
i will try convert some of the poi listed for other softwares to mapopolis maplets, hopefully that should work
i think in time mapoplis would release fully featured poi for the uk.

for now they need all the help(feedback) we users can give them. Thumbs Up
