What is a POI?

A POI (Point of Interest) is a dataset containing GPS coordinates that represents interesting and important locations in navigation applications. The most popular POI categories are for example speedcams, accommodation locations, restaurants, petrol stations, parking lots, wifi hotspots, attractions, etc. POIplaza portal – similar to navigation applications – is able to plan routes to POIs, or to warn of their presence when passing by.

POI contains the name and address of the Point of Interest, phone number in international format (that can be dialed from an appropriate navigation device), and of course geographic coordinates: latitude and longitude. Ultimate applications may handle other data, like detailed description, working hours, other contacts, and even photos (rich POI).

Downloading POI data to your GPS navigation system or PDA couldn't be simpler. You simply choose a country and list of services then download the .zip file that corresponds to the navigation software you use to your computer. Once you have connected your device, unpack the data into the relevant POI folder on your device following easy, step-by-step guide, and you are ready to go.
