I don't know of a poi for them. However you can tell the gps to avoid toll roads in the preferences.

Tolls

I made a trip where I went on I294 in SW side of Chicago. At every toll Booth the GPS said stay left. Since I did not have one of the RF toll payment boxes, I needed to stay right, going though the manual payment line.

I thought if you had out-of-state license plates (and did not live in the jurisdiction of any of the EZPass states) they couldn't make you pay the tolls.

We had a new toll bridge open up here recently and although they have license plate scanners to bill people, they admitted that they could not bill anyone who did not live here in BC.

Not so in the US. Everyone

Not so in the US. Everyone must pay the toll. It just depends on how vigorously they want to persue it.

On some tollways, you won't make it to the next toll booth before they chase you down.

Interesting. I drove to DC a couple of summers ago and dutifully paid all the tolls along the way--except for one in Illinois or Ohio that I missed because I wasn't paying attention to being in the correct lane. I didn't see any flashing lights behind me and got to wondering how they would get me to pay by mail since I had Canadian plates.

Ironically, I have one and my GPS keeps wanting me to stay right at all of the tollbooths.

In GPS we trust...

Reading this type of comments about gps I wonder when somebody will complain that gps doesn't tell him when to press brakes or use turn signals rolleyes
Just treat gps as some more convenient type of paper map and pay attention to signs on the roads. Otherwise we got news about people driving off the cliff because "gps said so and I have to follow".

GPS Instructions.

I do not follow the GPS blindly... but there are times I overrode the instruction that I should have followed.
