Where I find the community dBase with POI's/OV2 files for the GO mobile app?

The maps for my TomTomGo Mobile have no POI's so I have to import them.
It seems there exists a community dBase with POI's.
But I can not find it. So where?

    In the old days there was one but try here for starters:

    Thanks for the links but these are most or commercial or outdated.

    I try to find OV2 files as normally used in the TomTom NON mobile navigation products and wonder why these files are not standard available for TomTom customers.

    Even asking this question to the TomTom Help Desk gives no answer.
    For me it seems TomTom is now slowly dying.

    In the TomTom NON mobile navigation products there are no "normally used" OV2 files.

    I am waiting for an answer of the TomTom Helpdesk on the OV2 files to use in My Places of the TomTomGo Mobile. I got already 1 answer. The Helpdesk is not a fast system.

    When you go to Search do you not see these three tabs: Addresses, Points of Interest and Contacts. What more do you need or want than are under that second tab? If you find a more specialized collection of POIs in .ov2 file format, they can be imported via the MyDrive site.

    I like to see TomTom POI's and specialized POI's on map while driving.

    You will not, neither TomTom POI's nor specialized POI's.

    Why NOT ?

    ... because TomTom did not provide it.

    At last I got an answer from the helpdesk.
    The same as yours - they do not provide it as on my TomTomGo25
    I got no answer on my question on reliable OV2 files to import via Drive.
    Thanks for your help

    You can import POVs via TTmy drive online. I did thus ages ago they appear via search on the app.

    The searching and import is not the problem.
    Indeed ages ago - they are nearly all outdated and inaccurate.
    I like to have OV2's from professionals like TomTom
