    Looking for hardware stores in the in the cincinnati area. Ace Hardware is one chain. I'm a contractor and allways find myself looking for the closest place to get something to finish a job. It would be really nice to have Mom and POP stores catagorized along with the chain stores and the big box stores like Home Depot and Lowes. Thanks.

    unzip the files to your USA_Canda or North America Folder in your SD or HD.
    The zipped file contains Lowe's, Home Depot, and General Hardware store POIs in your area only.

    I have the same exact issue edshepard....I'm in Northern Ohio and when I'm out on the road I need to know where the mom and pop stores are as well as the box stores. That's really the only reason I purchased this device.

    I guess for mom and pop stores, it would take some yellow page research in your specific area for addresses and creation of your own POI file. It would be nice if all the mom & pop stores addresses were pre-listed...

    I use the program - MyPOI.
    If you google it, you will find it.
    I also made the icon to go with it.
    Here is your request for general hardware stores for the DC area.

    Pedro2NR, never saw this before (MyPOI). What a great little tool. I travel all the time (8 of the last 10 weeks). Anyway, this is perfect. I can make a custom POI for any obscure little town I go to. In fact not a bad tool to just get a quick phone number.

    Thanks for the tip! :)

    Hello. I just bought a TomTom 720 last week. It's my first GPS system and I am learning so much from reading this forum!

    1. Grocery stores - Albertsons, Ralphs, Von and Pavillions.
    2. Hardware stores - Lowe's, Home Depot, and General Hardware stores

    Thank you in advance!

    hd= hard drive. Refers to your TomTom's internal memory.
    sd= secure digital. Refers to a memory card that you can insert into your TomTom unit.
