      How up to date are the POIs?

      For instance..... Jerry's Pizza in Middletown, CT is at a new location, but my GPS still thinks it is at the old location.

        When was this list last updated for GPS? There have been a few additions since it first became available. I have not downloaded anything into my GPS for about 2 years.
        My problem is that I had a heck of a time figgering it out last time and if there was a new update I would forget how I did it. That said, I see a multi-state road trip coming up very soon. I would hate to miss something.

          In past discussions Stephen has said the POI files are updated weekly. I know I hadn't updated my GPS in a year, so a recent update brought lots of new places.

          Check the review for Jerry's to see if address is updated there. If review isn't current, POI's won't be either. Any updated info is appreciated.

            I had the same issue Mark...I had to learn how to update and install stuff all over again! If you are making a big trip an update is definitely worth your time.

              The address is up to date on the Restaurant page.  I must have uploaded the POI's before it changed then.

                  I have the same problem as Kreeger.  Could someone step me through what is needed to download the POI file from Roadfood to a Garmin GPS via a MAC and how to go about doing it.  If this has been already spelled out in terms a computer illiterate such as I can comprehend would someone please where to find it.

                  Thanks,

                    I have downloaded the POIs into my Garmin, the question I have is how do I find them, there does not seem to be any way to find a Roadfood POI versus one already in the “food” POIs for the Garmin?  Is there a way to find the Roadfood POIs?
