    Mapsforge POI specification will advance to version 2.

    That will provide “proper” multiple categories per POI and more efficient storage (as had discussed with Christian and Tobias).

    – POI writer will produce only the newer v2 .poi files
    – POI readers will be compatible with both v2 and v1 .poi files

    Thanks to community work and more info is in Mapsforge forum announcement.

    Thanks Emux, great news (again). Lots of good developments at the mapsforge community at the moment, I’m looking forward to test it (when I have a bit more time at hand)…

    Mapsforge POI version 2 is now available.

    You can use master poi-writer to produce poi v2 files.

    Cruiser (Android + Desktop) was also published with POI v2 (and v1) compatibility.

    Hi Emux,

    If I got this right – POI_V2 files will be compatible with (eg) Oruxmaps when the Orux will implement the new Lib in the App?

    Best regards

    Hi Christian,

    Mapsforge poi reader(s) are compatible with both v1 and v2 poi files, so you’re right!
