How to install it on your GARMIN device:
•Connect your GARMIN device to USB, and copy the file into the POI folder.
•Restart the GARMIN device, the Extra POI Pack Database will now work. It is stored either in the Extra or Other Categories section.
How to it was created out of OSM data:
•Reverse geocode OSM data to determine country, city, street (Reverse geocoding process to identify the street, zip, city and country, given the only coordinate of a POI.
•Since OSM data doesn’t have this information and since our framework requires that the countries be split, this step is mandatory.)
•Remove data which is already contained in our set
•Normalize” OSM data (The normalization is a complex process whereby OSM-categories and sub-categories are mapped to our categories.)
•Add any missing names
