Last update was a couple of years ago

Geochapman, if you're looking to find a particular store and it's in the Apple Store POI, you're good to go. If you're looking to update that POI, it was last updated in August of '16. You'd have to contact the owner of the POI and have him/her update it.

POI... nostalgia of the past

With everyone having smart phones that can search for the latest and closest "store" "restaurant" etc... POI files are kind of redundant, and seldom kept up to date.. Sad, but that is progress.

Many people with SmartPhones

Many people with SmartPhones turn off the cell and roaming when travelling especially when they are travelling out of Province/State due to the huge costs IF they don't have a portable plan.

In that case SmartPhones are useless outside of Wi-Fi...

Updating Of POI Files

I certainly take objection to the "seldom kept up to date" statement. Most of the files that are used frequently are in fact kept of to date and these maintainers spend a lot of time on this task.

I agree...

Most of the files here on the Factory are kept up to date and there are some maintainers that I know of will update a POI as soon as you let them know about a change. I know I have sent various changes to some of the maintainers and the changes have been made within 24 hours. Pretty up to date, I would say!

Sometimes a maintainer loses interest or drops off the POI Factory altogether and their files become orphaned. One with interest and some time can request to pick up the ball and run with it. Those who maintain these files spend a great deal of time making them as accurate as possible. The nature of some files are that they are in constant change as businesses open and close locations. And yes, smart phones and Google Maps fill the niche for many, but those of us who travel know that in some parts of the US and Canada, our cell plans fail us and the GPS on the dash will not.

My .02

People like mahoney have many POI files and do an excellent job of it. As others do as well. In some cases many hours are spent doing that.

I just spent a whole Sunday completely updating one of my POI files.

One thing that ticks me off when someone posts the particular location is out by maybe 1,000 feet or so.

People who maintain these POI files cannot be expected to cover every location throughout North America personally. You use Google Earth, MapSource, BaseCamp etc. to try and get as close a location as is possible. As mahoney said, if you find a location moved or closed let the maintainer know.

Sorry.. I was painting everyone with my own brush. I made one for school zones in Edmonton.. then the city included all the playgrounds and I gave up.
