Ok, I have possibly a simple question. I noticed many custom POI files are for stores/restaraunts that are generally included in the POI database for most units. For example, someone has one for "Applebees", but my Magellan, and I assume most other GPS units seems to have all of the local Applebees in the built in POI database. Are the custom ones more detailed, or is it just to keep them updated since stores open/close, etc?
In some cases the included databases on GPSs are outdated by 2+ years, so we are trying to ensure the most up to date and complete information we can get our GPS lovin hands on.
That is kind of what I thought. Thanks! Boy, with all of the different POIS's, it would be a ton of work keeping them all updated!
