Why are some POI's not showing up?

 

Hello everyone. I'm new to the whole GPS thing, but am starting to get used to it a little. My brother has one and loves it, so he got me one as a B-day gift. I have a TT1, 3rd Ed. My question is, I dowloaded a POI listing from the HOME site for a nationwide restaurant chain, and several in my area of New Orleans are not showing up. Any ideas as to why? Thanks for the help, I'm sure I'll be on here a bunch.

Welcome to the site

The reason could be that whoever compiled that list forgot to include the ones you are missing or wasn't aware they existed.

I've downloaded some POI's from TomTom with correct coordinates and incorrect/inconsistent information. rolleyes

Now you have a good reason to make your own POI's! mrgreen
