I just ran across a great site that has custom POI files for the newer GPS devices that accept this. Also, this site has all of the red light camera locations nationwide. Kind of cool...

Another good site is <a href=""></a> . This site allows you to generate your own POI files from local business search data.

I found another free GPS points of interest download site called Gointu at It is a community run like a wiki that allows anyone to add, edit or delete POI entries. It's quite flexible and it integrates with Google Maps.

I think that is the best one out there. Easiest to use and lots of files. They even have ones put on their by the companies themselves so they are very accurate.
