Japan POIs

#1 Post by motz88 » Thu Jan 05, 2017 12:32 pm

Hi there...anyone can help me with Japan POIs? Or even the map.
I downloaded Japan Map from OpenStreeMap but can't seem to search for anything, even streets or rail station POIs etc, such as Osaka Universal etc.

Appreciate any help from the members here.
Thanks & Regards..... Motz

There are few English Garmin map for Japan. What I did for my friend is to search the POIs in Google maps and then transfer it to the GPS.

Hope this helps.... cheers!

1. Garmin.co.jp got updated maps but paid version.
2. Japan Navigation & Topographic, also paid version and the data updated until March 2012 @ RM360.00 (¥9,720)
3. The only updated map for garmin devices is from OSM but as you said, POI data very limited except in a big city like Kyoto & Kobe.
