As of the POI, will it be sufficient if I get the updates from Garmin website alone or I need to download from elsewhere such as here to get the latest POIs. For eg, ABC coffee shop in Sabah which is famous for its Mee Tuaran. If there's a need for me to download from here, how do I install it into my GPS. I have downloaded the Garmin Express but the options to customise the GPS seems a bit limited. There's no direction to install anything extra apart from installing updates from Garmin and I don't think Garmin knows where the coffee shop to get the Penang char kuay teow...

Dear Bro alfredphua,

:welcome: to MalSingMaps.

POIs are part of the map so if you use the most updated map (which you can download from HERE), theoretically you should have the most updated POIs. However, we depend on our members to submit to us the info on POIs so if you have the latest map and you do not find the POI that you want. it could mean nobody has contributed the info so you could post the info in the Forum and the appropriate mapper will insert it into the map so that you can see it in the next revision.

Hey. That explains it. Thks bro

Look under "Community POIs" sub-forum. Plenty of such gpi files there.
