I asked the client but she doesn't know.

POI is probably "point-of-interest", however, I can't make sense of the sentence as is. I wonder if the POI, as used here, could refer to some sort of gadget?

Any insights appreciated:-)

Digital maps for modern GPS devices typically include a basic selection of POI for the map area.[2]

However websites exist that specialize in the collection, management and distribution of POI which end-users can load onto their devices to replace or supplement the existing POI.

You could also use POI files:

Here you can download POI updates and free GPS POI files for supported GPS receivers. You need to select a country and a category to see the list of available free POI files - points of interest for your selection.
New and recently updated POI files will appear at the top of the list for selected country and category (registered users will see the sign). The most frequently downloaded POI files will be at the bottom of the POI list. All free GPS POI files are available for download in multiple GPS POI formats, to suit the most popular GPS navigation receivers and GPS software (Garmin CSV, TomTom OV2, Navman CSV, Nokia LMX, Google Earth KML, etc.).
You can easily create, edit and share POI files.
