When you say POIs, do you mean
a. places that you can navigate to, or
b. places that will alert you when you are near as in a speed camera database?
The reason I ask is that the answer to your question is different depending on what you meant.
a. Yes
b. No

On GO 720 I can input own poiís and then navigate to them and get alerts when near them, such as parking places for motorhomes, I have them in my own poi file at present.

The 'problem' with the newer TTs is that there is no option to assiogn alert distances. This is OK for POIs that you want gto navigate to, but about as much use as tits on a bull for a speed camera database.
You need to be specific about 'alerts' when yo ask about POIs on TT.
