OV2 files


Hi all,

Hope someone can help. I'm looking for any tomtom ov2 poi files that cover the US, but they must have record types other than 2 (the boring standard).

I've grabbed a few from tomtom's site (mostly type 8/9), but they dont seem to have many - I need more to thoroughly test my POI software.

Does anyone know a good source for these ov2 types?




Any reason you can't convert some of the csv files on here to ov2 for your testing?

I think most converters tend

I think most converters tend to use the easy type 2 records. I don't really want type 2 pois.

There may be converters out there that generate the encoded/compressed ov2s, I'll have a look.
