    Hi there,

    I live in the Kitchener-Waterloo area which is located in southern Ontario.
    I have compiled a ZIP file that contains over 15,000 POI locations and POI icons (22x22) for your use if you live in this area. :D

    Most POIs are focused on the major cities of: Windsor, London, Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge, Guelph, Hamilton, St. Catharines, Niagara Falls, Mississauga, Brampton, Toronto, Oshawa, Barrie and Ottawa.

    They include locations and points of interest which cover some of the following:

    Airports
    Banks
    Casinos
    Colleges
    Fast Food
    Fire Stations
    Gas Stations
    GO Stations
    Hospitals
    Hotels
    Nightclubs
    Police Stations
    Popular Box Stores
    Restaurants
    Shopping Centres
    Speed Cameras
    Sports Stadiums and Arenas
    Tourist Locations
    Universities
    Via Stations

    It also includes markers for:

    All major 400-series highways interchanges
    Ferry Crossings
    Border Crossings
    Provincial Highways

    Even if you don't live in the area you can still download the high quality icons (22x22) for your TomTom

    Enjoy!

    Sounds impressive, you must have been busy! Thanks.

    Just one small spanner to throw in the works... TomTom in their wisdom have managed to produce a set of latest software for the older NAV2 models (Gox20, x30 x40 x50 etc) that does not like their own "standard" of 22x22 icons!

    Any of your own 22x22 icons are now liable to get squashed or corrupted by the software. 24x24 seems to be the new norm.

    They also messed up the old "full red goes transparent" feature for them.Here's what some test icons of various sizes look now.

    The ones on the left are 22x22 and the ones on the bottom row should all have a transparent bacckground.The 48x48 icons work on NAV3 but are squashed down on NAV2
