POI collections - Free Download

This page contains POI Collections for you to download for free. These will work with all TomTom devices, including the TomTom GO series 3,5,7,9, Traffic, cracker, Europe, Special, Rider, Navigator, & Mobile. These files were made to solve the limitations of the TomTom's storage capacity. Now that's no longer an issue, they are still very useful to have all the brands (e.g. petrol stations) consolidated in one POI file. That means to hunt for a fuel stop, you only need to query one POI file not each individually.

Instructions for downloading files from this web page

Please download the POIs that you require below by locating the relevant POI set  in the box below. Then click on either the ICON or the TITLE of the box. This will then initiate the downloading procedure which is to download a .ZIP file.

TOMTOMFREE.COM uses a very simple file retrieval system. This is to allow as many users as possible to benefit from our downloads without technical difficulties.

Unfortunately we cannot test every system and the setup of every browser type. If for some reason your web browser prevents you from downloading the .ZIP files then you will have to change the browsers settings to download the files.

Some software firewalls on PC' will warn you when you try and download a .ZIP file because they can contain viruses. Some may also prevent you from downloading the files. If this is the case then please refer to your firewalls documentation and setup.

A firewall may warn you when you download a .ZIP file from an un-trusted source or website. In this case we are a trusted source and we guarantee that our .ZIP files contain no viruses. Our files also don't contain any programs that can be activated as you are only downloading tomtom data files.

HOW TO INSTALL THE POI FILES

 
NEWS

The POI files here have recently been extensively updated along with the rest of our data sets. We went back to primary data providers and verified details. The CD ROM that we sell (see box to right) contains all of the POIs here as well as many more we don't publish.  Plus they are all easy to use, don't require unzipping and you can download or buy them on CD ROM. 

We also create special POI sets for business to use - to ensure that their customers and partners can find locations. For info on this please see our group website www.landis-media.co.uk If you haven't downloaded tomtom HOME yet (it works for all tomtom's other than PDA's) then you should. The main advantage is that you can update your software to version 6 - and that increases POI limit up from the 29 up to 100 - a much more sensible number. 

Some of you may notice that the number of POI we supply here on the site has been reduced. We have been concentrating on trying to improve POI quality overall and therefore to push the CD ROM that we sell (for a very reasonable price). We think that the POI below provide a fair reflection of what the disk contains.

We are also working on a much more targeted set of data to complement the new TomTom devices, with their increased capabilities.

Make sure that you register with us by using this UPDATES LINK - for changes to the POIs and latest news.
