    Adding POI's in iGuidance???

    I saw a few posts about this in other threads, but they were pretty scattered around the forums, so I thought I would start a new thread with a catchy title. Basically has anyone figured this out. It would be really cool to add POI's for lots of reasons. I know the POI's have their own .bin file in the mapdata area, but I have no idea how to mess with it...way over my head.

    I'd like to reiterate the need for this. POI is SEVERELY lacking if you ask me. I drive thru the nations capital and hardly EVER see poi's on my screen.

    Hmmm.. never seen that option before. I'll check it on the way home. But how are you entering them into iguidance? We should be able to import the POI from say Streets and trips or tomtom into iguidance.

    What the coustom option displays are the POI's that are already in the program. I was hoping to be able to add my own, i.e. WIFI hotspots, and being able to navigate to them.

    Edit: Yay...I just noticed I am not a newbie anymore.

    I've fooled with this and it doesnt work the way we're speaking of. The favorites list is fine and dandy but it doesnt give me a icon on the screen to notify when ur close to one of them. Another thing witht he POI database is its about goin to places you DONT know where they are.. like if i'm driving in another state and wanna go to a local park, gas station or atm. Thats why the POI is really needed.
