Now with FULL UK Postcode Lookup!

We have now updated navPOInt to include the ability to add full UK postcode lookup to your navigation disk. Thatís right, over 1.5 million UK postcodes directly mapped to their individual destination streets! No more annoying part postcode, part street name address lookups. Simply enter the full postcode and house number like most other sat nav users have done for years, and you're ready to go!

Once you have entered the full postcode, you can chose to either select the individual street automatically and then enter the house number, or navigate directly to the postcodes geographic co-ordinates as supplied by the Post Office and Ordnance Survey. For some addresses, where the original Audi DVD does not contain a matching street name for the given postcode, only the option to navigate to the geographic location will be available. However in a large number of cases we find the Ordnance Survey's geographic co-ordinates to be more accurate than the Audi house number database.

The trial version of navPOInt limits the number of postcodes you can add to a DVD to a single postcode area (for example BR6 9) so you can see for yourself how our product works. The full version of course adds every single postcode from the national database.

About

navPOInt is a tool for adding custom Points of Interest (POI) to your Audi Satellite Navigation Plus (RNS-E)*. Without it, there is no way to add your own POIs - the Audi DVD comes with a selection of pre-defined POI categories (petrol stations, hotels, etc) as chosen by Audi. You can NOT change these ordinarily and they do NOT include, for instance, safet camera locations.

Add your own categories, each with a unique custom icon of your choosing, to the navigation systems map display. Using NavPOInt you can add safety camera locations, or any other more specialised POI you wish, to create your own uniquely personalised navigation DVD!

This highly useful feature, available as standard on most after market GPS systems, can now be added to your Audi system with our simple and easy to use PC software. Download our trial software, add your POI, re-author your DVD, and you are ready to go! Full integration with the RNS-E menus allows you to select which POI appear, just like you can for the existing built in categories such as Petrol Stations, Cinemas, Shopping Centres, etc.

All you need is a PC running XP, Vista or Windows 7 (32 or 64 bit) and the ability to burn DVD+R DL (Dual Layer) disks. Simply download a safety camera or other POI database from one of the many sites available (we recommend PocketGPSWorld.com or SCDB.info) and our unique software provides everything else you need to create your customised navigation DVD.

Start using NavPOInt today and enjoy a safer and more fun driving experience!

* RNS-E is the DVD based navigation system available as an option on Audi A3 (8P 2003 on), A4 (8E 2001-2008), A6 (4B 2001-2005), TT (8J 2006 on) and R8 models. You can tell if you have an RNS-E system because it says "Audi Satellite Navigation Plus" on the unit.
