  • Hi Christine,

    Yes, this is doable. If the websites of the businesses don't have downloadable files with store locations, you will most likely be able to find alternate sources by searching the web for e.g. "download poi home depot". Once you have the locations, you will be able to import them to Streets & Trips.
