Anything, just any POI. Will include if logical. :mrgreen: Better if you can include the perimeter fence and building of the factory as well (from GE ma).

My idea of important POIs are:

1) Petrol stations
2) Places of worship
3) FOOD (halal and non-halal)
4) Budget hotels
5) Police stations, Clinics, Hospitals
6) Banks and ATMs

11) Tourist and historical place

Just to expand this category. Inclusion of waterfalls or picnic areas would be a boon. I have always wanted to go to the "Cheras" waterfalls but selalu sesat jalan when i reach the kampung area, dang!

Bro Buaya69,

Thanks for the feedback. What we are trying to achieve is a list of handy POI (important) that travellers need when an unplanned situation arises. POIs like medical, workshop, fuel, lodging are some example of POIs that's handy when in a strange land. We like to bring some awareness to our memebers to lookout for such POIs so that all of us can benefit. Others , good to have, POIs will certainly make our maps useful to its users.

Keep the feedback coming, we will try (hopefully able) to compile the POIs in its level of importance....cheers!

There used to be a Pasar malam GPI but the person doing it has stopped citing lack of interest.

I guess it kinda depends on the users themselves. What exactly is the motive of the user in getting a GPS. Like me, for example my focus is in places like the courts and govermental bodies due to my nature of work. As I need to travel to these places all over the states in the country. Hence the need for a GPS. :wink:
