I’ve just recently updated the POI (Point-of-interest) files for my sat nav using the freely downloadable POIs from PocketGPSWorld. While I was doing this I thought that I’d like to have some of that, especially wifi hotspots, on my HTC Desire as a map layer. Here’s how I’ve done it.

There is one unfortunate problem I’ve come across - only the first 1000 markers seem to be loaded by Maps on my Android phone. Anyone know why?
