    Newbie here, 540XXL.

    I saw a post referencing "full poi list", but can't find it.

    Is the only way to get these pois to download one zip file at a time via the forum, or is there one big repository of them (like ftp) that you can grab them by name? I'm trying to get a big list of shops and pois for my wife, but doing them by name will take forever one post at a time.

    Thanks!

    Welcome to TTF.

    There is no consolidated file emcompassing all shops that I know of offered by TomTom but you have pages and pages of stuff you can search through. Try the filter, such as it is, to make things easier.

    You are not restricted to just poi files from TomTom. Lots of places on the web that provide them as well.

    Here are some:
    POIfriend.com: Free GPS POI (Point of Interest) Downloads, Maps & Community - Garmin TomTom
    POI Factory | new & interesting places for your GPS
    The United States - GPS POI Files for the United States - GPS POI Data
