    The program found 3 duplicates around my place, 2 are small local business and 1 is car dealer.
    The search within group "American restaurants" (3.5 miles) did not show any duplicates of POI :-)

    I guess extended one is a add on to regular. I'll keep them both regardless of some duplicates.

    So I was looking into this a little more - it seems that the extended POI files have a very limited selection of POI categories compared to the normal POI files - for example there isn't even a restaurant category at all in the extended POI files (at least in my search area) - so it's pretty obvious that the extended POI files are meant to be used along with the regular POI files and are not replacements for the regular POI files (like I had originally thought they were).

    I did find some duplicates too - Starbucks (in the "Shopping" category) seems to have duplicates as well as some gas stations. I even found duplicate entries for Starbucks just within the regular POI file alone! :-)

    Can someone post a link to the extended POIs again?

    I am seeing the same, i.e., very few category in extended only. But, with both almost all POI shows up twice. Some of the duplicates are in different categories.

    That's really strange - I see *very* few duplicate POIs when using both the normal and extended POI files at the same time... I guess it all depends on the exact location.

    Which version of the app are you using? Maybe that makes a difference somehow - maybe the newer versions are better at filtering duplicates?
