What is a POI file?

POI files contain coordinates and descriptions for a set of locations (which are commonly referred to as "POI" or "Points of Interest"). Many newer GPS models are able to use this data to show what's nearby or even give an alert as you get close to a location (such as a red light enforcement camera).

How do I download a POI file?

To download, you'll need a user account (which also enables you to post in the discussion forums). User accounts are free.
