Long time no post, I know But now I’m back again :-p
As an owner of a Tomtom via 120, I wanted to update the POI’s, but I didn’t want to pay for just updating the Points-of-Interest. As I’m participating in openstreetmap.org, I’ve decided to use those POI’s and upload them to my device.
Sadly, most or even all providers of these files seem to no longer update their data for Switzerland (http://eofw.org/osm/ for example). Therefore I decided to generate these files on my own, shouldn’t be too much of a hassle.
My tool of choice was osmosis, which uses the planet.osm (or an extract of it) and lets you filter based on your own criterias.
