Creating new POI files!


I want to start creating my own POI files, what is the easiest/fastest way to do that? I need to know the best way to get the coordinates or is there specific sources that can do that as a list. Where do you guys get yours?



Creating POI files

You can also search this site for creating POI's and that will give you other options.


Welcome to the site.

Be sure to click on the getting started and faqs sections linked at the top of each page.

Check out this page to see the proper format for the POI files.
