POI menu

In the POI menu ("POI" option in the main menu), you can change all the settings related to points of interest (POI).


In this option you can specify the categories of POIs displayed on the map; refer to section "POI on the map". For more details, refer to section "Displaying POIs on the map".


Displays and edits the user's favourite POIs.

Pop-up category

Pop-up - in this category, groups of frequently used POIs can be created for easy access.

Last used

Last used - this category contains the most recently used POIs.

Notebook category

This special POI "Notebook" category, coupled with the "(BP) Add to POI" function in the MENU | Settings| General | Buttons..., enables the user to save a new POI with a single tap of a hardware button or a screen button.



In this option, you can manage the POIs you have defined or added to the system.

The POI are displayed in the form of a list, composed of a category icon, as well as the name and description of the POI. A map square to the left means that the POI will be displayed on the map. POI can be filtered by name (by entering part of that name or description in the "Name" field) or by category (by selecting one category of POI after tapping the option "Any").

After selecting a category, you can easily delete selected POIs, as the category icon disappears, only to be replaced with a recycle bin. After clicking the icon, you can select any point to be deleted. After selecting POIs for deleting, click the Deletebutton and Delete selected. (You can also select all points in the chosen category, by selecting Delete, then Select All.)

Management, part 2

Use the File button to make the basic operations on the file containing POI (or actually on a set of files with extensions .amp, .ampdata and .ampdesc).

Menu header contains information on the currently loaded file. 

Load default file loads the default file (i.e. default.amp, default.ampdesc and default.ampdata files from the "Data Files" folder of the profile currently in use). 

New – creates a new empty POI file by providing its name and localization.  Note! For devices running Windows CE, we suggest creating files on the memory card. 

Open – loads a different existing POI file.

Save As– makes a copy of the currently loaded file and saves it under a new name and/or in a new file folder.

Add From – loads POI from a selected file to the currently loaded one, simultaneously turning on the map display of POI contained in the file. 

Import – loads POI from a text file (.csv format). During the POI import, the system will ask the user whether it should create a separate file for imported POI. Selecting "No" causes the points to be added to the currently loaded POI file, while selecting "Yes" results in the creation of a new POI file in the same folder as the imported file.

Tapping any point on the lists opens the pop-up menu which apart from the commands detailed above, also contains an "Edit..." option. By editing a point, you can change its category, name and description.

The user can edit and delete POI or import them as files obtained from other Software users or websites (such as miplo.pl).


The screen is used for selecting POI categories that are interesting to the user and for selecting the nature of "warning" of such a POI. For details about this option, refer to section POI Warnings.

Synchronize with Miplo

The option is only active in “Ekspert” mode. It can only be accessed after the configuration of Miplo services in Settings-> General-> Miplo. It enables additional update of POI file, independent of the synchronization cycle determined during the MiploSync program configuration.


Enabling/disabling the MiploLoc service. The LED located on the left side informs whether the option is currently active.
