All POI files need to be placed into the map folder they are intended to be used with, they will comprise of two files ov2 which contains the database of locations and a coresponding bmp file which is the icon.

The built in POI files reside within the POI.dat file which is a special format, best left alone, for any custom POI files just download them, unzip and put them in the map folder, for cameras you will then need to go to Change Preferences/Manage POI/ Warn when near POI and configure each category - Mike
