We would of course point out that you can also LOAD all of

We get asked by quite a few people:
"What a POI is and why they
would need one on their sat-nav units ? "
A POI - is simply a "Point Of Interest" that is a place you
might want to visit. Its different from a postcode, address,
co-ordinates or favourite that you have on your sat-nav because
its already "coded". We have already pre-calculated where the
place is for you. It can also hold some extra information -
like a phone number, description, opening times, road name,
brand or shop name. To use a POI you just ask for it when searching
on the satnav.
For example: I want to NAVIGATE TO - POI - MY NEAREST TESCO
and a list appears of the nearest 10 TESCO - and shows which
ones are metro, superstores or express.
As you can imagine - these are very useful when you are in
a new area. Lets say you a driving on the old North Road and
suddenly note you need some fuel. You have no idea where the
next services are -especially ones open at midnight !
You tap into the satnav for 24hr petrol stations nearby and
get a list of 10.
You select the third one
and to make sure dial its number (to make sure its open) - it
is and so away you go, saved by technology !!!
Without a 24 hour petrol stations of the UK POI set - you
would be in trouble ! You could get very stuck just guessing
where to go at midnight !
WANT TO TRY ONE ?

We host a number of free Points Of Interest as well as providing
a disc/download with a huge collection on. Our Points Of Interest
are well categorized, and we provide POI's by "brand" as well
as by "group". This helps searching and using them easier. You
may only shop at Tesco, but when running out of fuel - you will
settle for any petrol station !

easy and effective way to find what you want without searching

slow down trying to display too many POIs. You will find for
instance a DIY collection made up of B&Q, Homebase, Wickes,
