Hi guys,
Just wondering if anyone knows is it possible to import POI from someone like google maps.
I have done so many reports on mapshare in and around the Estepona and Marbella area where the POI is either incorrect map position, incorrect street name, duplicated etc etc that I have no trust in tomtom POI.
So was wondering when planning a route for a rideout using my rider 550 and want to add a stop for coffee break or stop for lunch is it possible to import a coffee bar etc from google maps to my rider 550.
I know google maps are not 100% perfect but having checked quiet a few of their POI they are more accurate and better details than tomtom.
Everything else with my rider 550 and my go 6200 works very good.
No problem if not possible was just wondering if it was as no trust with tomtom or tripadvisor with POI.


cheers guys.
