What map version will you be using?

Both the 675 and 715 already have loads of Canadian POI's.

HOME 2.3 also has a number of custom POI's for specific gas companys, like ESSO, Canadian Tire, etc.

Cheers!

Im using map V 6.75 and the reason im asking is because i have lost the poi.dat file that comes with them. so thats why i wanted some gas stations etc.

The nice thing about Canada (especially depending on what area you will be visiting) is that there are gas stations on almost every corner.

Go to TT HOME 2.3, plug in your device and download the brand specific poi's for stations in Canada. I dont know how many it actually gives you, and for the most part they are more useful in Western Canada.

I have a 675 and a 715 map, is there some way I can supply you with the missing files?

Cheers

You could always upload the POI.dat file from the 7.15 map to a website send me the link via PM and i can download it?
Thanks
