POIViewer is a POI management tool with a lot of features.

POIViewer can load, manage and display POIs (Points of Interest) on maps.
Places, waypoints, placemarks can be imported and exported, show as pin or configurable icon on maps.
This universal app is very fast even with thousands points, making it the perfect complement to existing apps for navigation or route planning.
And if you really have a lot (>10000), you can selectively show/hide groups of POI on the map.

A few reviews from App stores (thank you):

Excellent app

Really handy for my job and the locations I access use the ov2 format file, saves having to use the TomTom all the time. One less thing to carry.

Also my phone is a lot faster than the TomTom

Great. Sorry Diskaid

Ok, I was using Diskaid to import my Work and Favourite POI's into my TomTom app. Then along comes the new IOS 1.6 and Diskaid no longer has access to the TomTom folders for writing files!! Well thanks Apple :-(

Anyway, did a little investigation and found this app. It doesn't save anything into the TomTom app, but it does allow you to import .ov2 files (and many other formats I believe) using the file transfer facility in the iTunes APP page for your iPhone.

Once imported, the POI's are viewable in the App and there's an option to get directions which opens the TomTom app and starts direction finding as usual. One thing I did notice is that it appears to always give you the fastest route, so if you want Non-Motorway or Twisting roads simply do a route recalculation and tell it what you want within TomTom. Sorted :-)

At last my poi back

Have got over a thousand work places that I visited over the last 9 years. Been saving them since my PDA then my 720 ( which I have been using to create the latest poi files )
I can now use them again on my iPhone 5 and get tomtom to direct me there
