Various Audi navigation systems can be equipped with additional POI's and locations of mobile and fixed speed cameras via POIbase. With POIbase the data can be installed in a matter of minutes, and the new POI's can then be transferred to the sat nav in your car.

  •  Audi A3/RS3 (8V)

For these cars we recommend our POI Pilot 6000 POI and Speed Camera Warner, which can be used independently of the vehicle and offers a directional voice warning. The device does not have to be mounted on the windscreen, but can also be placed freely e.g. in the centre console.

Especially for the Audi A4 Facelift 2020 we recommend users to contact the manufacturer directly and expressly ask them to enable the import function for POIs. For this is only a matter of a software change that the manufacturer can easily implement.

Video

The following video demonstrates the installation of POI's and speed cameras in the car (enable subtitles for English).

Access the POIbase Web Edition

You can access the POIbase web version via this link: POIbase Web Edition

Log in or Create Account

Currently only registered users can use POIbase. Registration is free and you must use a valid email address you have access to, as the download link with your selected POI’s will be sent to your email address.

Select System

After logging in, a popup will appear in which you select your sat nav system. Scroll down the list until you find Audi and confirm with "Select this device". POIbase will remember your selection, so you will only need to do this once.

Create your POI Export Request

Go to "Load POI’s and Speed Cams" and browse through the available POI categories under "Download Speed cams" and/or "Download POIs"”, and activate any you wish to download via the "Add" button. Use the "Back" button to return to the main categories. You can double check your selection under "Load POIs and speedcams > My selected POIs".

Use the yellow "Download approx xx POIs" button to initiate your export request.

Our servers can take between 1 and 60 minutes to process your request. Once it is ready, you will receive the download link via email. You cannot send any further requests while your current request is being processed.

In the case of speed camera POI's, POIbase creates bundles sorted by both speed camera type and by speed on the data carrier.

As a maximum of 10 categories can be selected for acoustic alerts (not available for all models), the speed camera types should be selected for this setting.

When it comes to displaying the POI’s on the map, the categories sorted by speed should be selected. More information is available in the video below.

Downloading the POI Package

Click the download link in the email you received and save the file locally on your PC/Mac. The file name will look something like this: 443394-2019-10-28.zip (where the latter part of the name refers to the date the package was generated on). Unzip the file locally.

Preparing the data carrier

After unzipping the package, copy the folder "PersonalPOI" as well as the file "metainfo2.txt" to a FAT32 formatted SD card or USB stick. These must be placed directly in the data carrier’s root directory, and not in any other folder.

Installing the POI's in the car

How to install the POI's in the car is explained in our video and also under the "Instructions" tab above. Enable the subtitles for English subtitles in the video.
