    Default POIs - Fuel Stations, Restaurants, ATMs etc - NOT Cameras

    Whilst trying to sort out the Speed Cameras on my refurbished Nuvi 270 I removed all the files in the POI directory.
    After rebooting and looking in the 'Where to?.....Food, Hotels....' section, all the information seems to be there.

    In which file are these Points of Interest held?

    I'd like to check the date to see if they are reasonably up-to-date.
    There are 10 types of people in the world.....those who understand binary and those who don't.

    It's in the map file.

    I'm not too surprised to hear that but whilst in California in April (using 2010 Maps) I tried to visit a restaurant near LAX and
    found that it was a multi-story car park. This made me think it was perhaps using an old file in my original 2007 unit. Probably
    the info in the map was out of date.
    Thanks for your answer Andy1 because I couldn't find them anywhere else.
