PoiEdit is a program for managing your Places of Interest files. With it you can not only download poi files to your computer, but also transfer them to a mobile device if you wish so. The poi items can be displayed on your screen using programs such as Map Quest® or Microsoft Map Point© (version 2004 only). You only need to connect your ActiveSync or other generic USB device or drive to your desktop PC.

The user interface is nice and easy to use. A significant advantage is that the pois can be updated in any supported file format regardless of the file format the site of the update uses. Updates for the poi files can be done with one click of the mouse from special auto update sites to your desktop computer or Mobile device (Smartphone/Pocket PC).

Poi files are used the world over but in this program automatic poi updates are from European countries like France, Netherlands, Spain, UK, etc. The program has multilanguage support. PoiEdit supports English, Dutch, Spanish, French and Italian languages.

There is also a multiple batch converter, which can convert multiple poi files instantly to another format or merge them together.

The program is fully integrated with Windows -you can drag and drop files from Windows or open the poi files just by double-clicking on them.

The program is shareware and supports Windows XP and Windows Vista.
