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.

Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
The use of this monitoring feature to provide speed camera detection might be forbidden in some country.

Ratings and Reviews
The Absolute Best!!!
I have been using stand-alone GPS units for years which have POI saving and ready recall. I have wanted that same feature on the mapping apps on my phone and now I have that capability using this app.
It permits me to download POI csv files that I have created, it sorts the names alphabetically and lets me choose which map app that I want to use.
This app is the absolute best for POI management; thank you for its development.
I use this constantly
I can’t imagine life without this app. Seriously. It’s so nice for finding work locations that we have stored in Garmin CSV. I hope this stays around for years.
Developer Response ,
I hope too ! Thank you.
Excellent for real estate use
Our firm has embraced the tablet revolution and this app allows me to export our data into kmz format and add to our users iPads for client tours. The information screen that mimics the Google Eart pop up is key because I enter data and link to pictures that appear right on screen. The streetview plug-in is also very useful. If I may suggest at least 3 enhancements: 1) Allow for different symbols to be used for the pushpins, 2) Allow for a full screen pop up window without a limited zoom when accessing the point data, streetview, foursquare & picture data, and 3) keep the folder structure of the kmz file in tact. I had a very nice file created with multiple folders for different sites and they all came in together. Other that that keep up the good work and we look forward to any updates you may have planned.
