    I think TT removed a lot of POI in new map 8.65_USA, I upgraded to 8.65 from V8.25_USA_CA cuz I dont travel much. I thought buying USA only map will have more POIs than US and CA, but I was wrong. I did a test, I searched for "Baggs" (Bill baggs cape state park, Florida) which I went last year with my 8.25_US_CA maps, but I dont see this POI in the newest map 8.65 even by searching by category.
    Suggestions?

    Still have a copy of your previous map? Check the size of the poi.dat file in the older map with that in the new one. If the older is larger, try copying it to the new map folder, replacing the new one.

    But, just to play safe...............back up the new map first. (but you would have already done that, right? :D ).

    Use Explorer.
