I give up with POI, For POI I will use waze or google maps. Yes they are not 100% perfect as no-one is but they are more reliable for map position and details especially waze. Generally tomtom is very very good but really let themselfs down with POI

    Hi
    @cbrfireblade.....
    POI Categories Install OK for me....
    I have 107 3rd Party POI & Personal Categories installed on each of my Tomtom devices, several of the POI Categories have a couple of thousand individual POIs, one of the POI Categories has 31,184 individual POI locations....

    Hi @cbrfireblade

    Just wondering if you can provide some examples of these POI's, I noticed that these all have to do with TomTom crawling the web and sometimes there are these weird websites that store these business data that always have the location wrong. I noticed; can you provide those examples.

    Wish TomTom was like Bing that says in the description of each POI which source they used, thanks :)

    There are tons of reliable Government and business & park databases and still, I see tons of random duplicates or non-exist or misspelled parks. I agree with you, POI's are awful and it's affecting every map that uses TomTom including Bing. :(

    Hoping Bing comes up with a mobile navigation app :)
