Hi, does anyone know where I can get poi's from and how to add them to maps.me? Cheers sean
Most poi's are for satnavs and come in different formats ie .ov2 for tomtom, .csv for Garmin etc.
Once you have found the poi file you want you need to convert it to .kml format for use on maps.me.
There are several converters you can use - poi editor - gps data team - poiconvert etc etc just search for them online.
Once you have converted the poi to .kml format email the file to your device and when you open it, it loads onto maps.me.
That's how I do it with my tablet, there will probably be better ways.
if you subscribe to searchforsites they provide data that you can download to maps me. you just need to contribute to searchforsites in order to build up points sufficiently to be able to download.
Second search for sites, pity he hasn't made an offline app.
I agree, but I found the downloads to maps.me very useful last year
Ian (the site owner) has confirmed that it is on the cards, just not available yet.
Thanks guys for the info
Just tried this maps me thingy but too much downloading, couldn't get France.
I have a lot of campsite poi's for France and Spain complete with gps co-ordinates for maps.me which I am prepared to share, if interested pm me with your email address.
Pois are ok it's the map me thingy I'm having trouble with
