Hi

Newbie to the forum as I am trying to find help with creating an Oxford GPS POI tour.

Do you mean a POI list of Oxford tourist attractions or an actual tour of Oxford with POIs as stops or as an itinerary?

What SatNav (make & model) do you have?

Regards,

Think that you would have to do your own. I say that because if you look at just the Oxford City Guide HERE you will see that there are many.

Just a few mentioned:

Tours include:
Daily University and City Tour
Family Walking Tour
William Morris and Victorian Oxford Tour
Oxford Children's Stories Tour
Inspector Morse Tour
Oxford's West End Tour
Tudor Oxford Tour
CS Lewis and JRR Tolkien Tour
University and City Tour in Spanish/French
Stained Glass Tour
Women in Oxford Tour
Sciences at Oxford Tour
Literary Tour
Oxford Film Sites Tour
Gargoyles and Grotesques Tour
John and Charles Wesley Tour
Pottering in Harry's Footsteps Tour
Garden Tour
Jewish Heritage Tour

See what I mean Laughing

I tested some "tours" for the Garmin sat-navs from a company called "Roadtour" a few years ago, and I think Darren did the same - try a forum search for "Roadtour" to see a review and some previous discussion about it.

As far as I can see, the only "heritage" one available now covers the whole of the country, but it shows you what's possible on that system.

Although TomTom has the capacity to show extra detail from "rich" POIs, the software to create them is not easy to find or to use, and the results are only a bit of extra detail shown, nothing as impressive as an automatic tour.
