    Re: Australia POIs

    Hi, may i know the source of these POIs? I mean i did you get them or how were they created? Some of the custom POIs i downloaded were not very reliable. But i've found the standard or official Tom Tom POIs for a lot of places are absolutely incredible and accurate. Most of the business, parks and touristy locations are there in the official Tom Tom POIs. I'm talking about the Australian map and i'm in Victoria.

    Sure. I got them from the austech forum site a while ago. I think a couple of users gathered them from several sources and bundled them together. I've been using them ever since.

    I've also noticed that some of the POIs are not very reliable. For example, one day while I was on the road, I was looking for a Bunnings store somewhere in Melbourne and it guided me to a destination where there was no Bunnings. Also some POIs are way out of date and I'd like to get those updated eventually. If, for example, I download an updated Bunnings POI catergory, then I can just overwrite the old one with the new one, and do the same with any new POI categories I come across, thus gradually improving the accuracy of this POI bundle.

    There were a few sites which had updated POIs for free, but those sites haven't been updated for over a year now. If anyone knows of any such sites, please let us know.

    Great work there lemonfish!

    Certainly saved me lots of time downloading the individual POI's. However, if you shop at Coles & use the 4cent off petrol vouchers you may want to download the latest Coles Express ov2 file from their web site (last updated 20/4/2011):

    Download Coles Express POI Tom Tom files .ov2 (15.8 kb ZIP)

    Cheers.

    Re: Australia POIs

    Here is an Australian Poi for those gay Naturist- Ozzie travelers, who will be spending their summertime in the country!
    The list includes Clothing-optional beaches, Naturist camping areas and Resorts. It covers mainly the Legal-nude and Official-Clothing Optional sites.
    Un-rar this file and put both files in your "Map folder" (.OV2 & .BMP)Oznudebeaches4.rar

    Have fun!
