The best way I have found is sending them one by one from Google Maps. I don't recall reading anything about importing POI files.

Are you equating POI with Address Book entry or am I missing something here?
I can search POI's in the Nav. Are Address Book entries included in the search?

I confused the issue. It's really an address book or a destination entry, but I don't use it that way. I just retain a list of favorite destinations under "messages". I don't know how to get them in the searchable POI database and I don't believe the address book or messages are included in the POI search.

Yeah, I wasnt looking for an address entry, but more like a list of POI's that I can load by myself (ie radar traps, list of whatever store, just something I dont need to rely on whatever BMW provides.)

So based on the lack of responses, I'm guessing this is not possible?
