Points of Interest

This Points Of Interest page contains a list of POI's from all over the world.  Currently these are available in TomTom Navigator (OV2) format, but will be made available in other formats in months to come to include AutoRoute and CoPilot Live.  Points of interest are usually regarded as items like Petrol Stations, Hotels, Restaurants, but imagine what you can do by adding Speed Camera's, Clients, Castles, and many more items.  This doesn't have to be used just for work, or for tourism, it can be used for a whole host of new things.


Important: New PocketGPSWorld.com Launch a Dynamic POI Database system.


New! Over 300,000 POIs to Download for FREE!

PocketGPSWorld.com have well over 300,000 Points of Interest (POIs) available for download right now - for FREE!

As POIs have increased in popularity over the years, we have decided to promote this much neglected area of our site. Lutz and Richard have put together a brand new shiny interactive POI community section that we are inviting everyone to become heavily involved in. Although we currently have a comprehensive selection of UK POIs, we want many more! After you have downloaded your choice of POIs, we want your submissions and we want your comments! We are also asking the community at large to help us with our initial 'soft' launch of all other countries.

We currently have over 500 UK categories including Pubs, Hotels, Theatres, Supermarkets, Banks, Hospitals, ATMs, Wi-Fi Hotspots, National Trust and Cinemas to name but a few. We even have Dr. Who film locations - you never know when they'll come in handy! :o)

Click here for the POI download page.

Please click here to submit your own (non-copyrighted) POIs. Maybe your company or organisation wants inclusion of all its public offices/branches/facilities/areas in the database? Please send them in for consideration and, if accepted, we will include them for free.

To download the latest version of the PocketGPSWorld.com POI Database or to submit new POIs you need to be registered as a user on the site and currently logged in.

If you have TomTom Navigator, then why not get the best out of the POI's by subscribing to our FREE Pocket GPS POI-Sync Service. Please note that these datasets will no longer be updated. The latest POI data can be found in our Dynamic POI Database service.


Pocket GPS POI-Sync is a new service from the Pocket GPS Team.  This incorporates all of the POI's listed at Pocket GPS on this page, categorised into country sets, which you can download and sync to your Pocket PC in the desktop cradle whilst you're online.  Pocket GPS POI-Sync will work with all the current POI Warning Systems that plug-in to TomTom Navigator 1 and TomTom Navigator 2 including GPSAssist, POI-Warner, CheckPOInt and many more add-on POI programs.

Pocket GPS POI-Sync uses a desktop syncing program called POIEdit.  This allows you to dock your PC, connect to the internet and sync to our site and download the latest versions of POI's or new POI's, easily and without fuss.


Pocket GPS also has a very well known and respected UK Safety Camera Database.  This contains thousands of Fixed GATSO cameras, Mobile GATSO cameras, Frequent Mobile Police Laser Sites, Accident Blackspots and Red Light Traffic Cameras.


We put a great deal of effort into our database to make sure it's both accurate and useful, and because of this it's not just a collection of co-ordinates.  Therefore the database is copyright of Pocket GPS, and can only be distributed in other programs or on other websites with express written permission.


Submit POI's

If you have created any POI groups, and would like them added to our Database Service, please click here to submit them or email us with these and we'll include them.


Creating your own POI's

To create your own POI's, please see TomTom's article at http://www.tomtom.com/support/ce/support/nav_poi.php


Submit Safety Camera Updates

If you have any updates that require adding or removing from our Safety Camera Database, please email them to our Safety Camera Team.
