Escort Defender Database...Type of File Format?

Hello all! I'm new to the forum and thought I would make my first posting. Does anyone know what POI file format is used in the Escort Defender database? I have an Escort 9500ix radar detector/gps unit with a Defender subscription and I'm curious if it is possible to manipulate the files. I'm interested in personalizing the information uploaded to my unit.
