I decided that it was time to update this file. In the past updates,it was an extremely slow process that included going to a state listing and next to a city listing and hoping that all cities were listed. In the process of this update, I found that a total listing was available on the BK website.I compared this total listing to the existing file, consisting of over 8100 line items and to my suprise, obtained the following results:
Added 804 locations
Deleted 529 locations
Relocations/address corrections 139 locations
Net increase of 275 locations
A lot of time was still required, but having a total listing made this review a little easier. Too bad that other business's don't provide their total listings.
NOTE: Due to the amount of time on this, I used GPS visualizer to obtain the coordinates for most of the new locations. Please send me any corrections that you find.
for the work that you do.
That sounds like a lot of work. Thank you mahoney
Thanks for the time and effort.
It would be nice if businesses would offer a file like BK does. I am of the opinion it would increase their traffic to their locations, Maybe not a lot but I don't see a downside to it.
Don't see how "it would increase their traffic to their locations".
Most people don't use POI locations, they use their cellphones or Google.
The days of needing to download POI's being are numbered.
Thanks for your hard work.
I guess if you never leave the safty of citys or towns and allways stay on major roads then there is no use for GpS, but I end up in lots of places that have never heard of cell phones and ask what is a cell signal...... will keep gps thanks
...when I am on the road to find POI’s. I seldom will use my phone to find restaurants, etc. And, there are places where cell phones do not have reception. (I am thinking about the hills of WV or the empty spaces of Montana. I’ve been in both where I have searched for a POI and haven’t had cell service.) So, I will keep my GPS and its ability to find a POI when I’m out in the middle of nowhere.
