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 tomtom software to version 7. 

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 have also a new MAP SERVICE - where we can provide your TomTom with a new set of up to date maps. We will do all the installing and setup required as well as cleaning up the software on your TomTom. To see details of this then CLICK HERE.

The well know building supply merchants. They don't seem to advertise on television any more, the catchphrase was "we've got the Jewson lot". Well they still stock building materials and are a useful source of goods.

 

 

Methodist Churches

 Just to show there's no bias we pout up Methodist churches. This is a great POI set from Peter Howarth and very thankful we are for it. As churches are often coded to the vicars home address and not the church itself. A handy guide for all Methodists.
