Manual for CheckPOInt 3


CheckPOInt works with so called overlays. These overlays contain the positions of "points of interest" (POI's) of a certain type. The same overlays CheckPOInt uses are also used by TomTom Navigator to display the POI's on the screen.

When CheckPOInt is started, it checks which overlays are available for the map that TomTom Navigator currently uses.
Then it starts monitoring your current driving position and checks whether you approach one of the points of interest from one of the overlays it has found. It only detects POI's within a certain angle of your current driving direction:

As soon as you are within a certain range of a detected POI, CheckPOInt can give you acoustic warnings:

  •  When you're not really close the POI yet, it can play a sound file as a first warning.
  •  If the POI concerns a speed camera, CheckPOInt can also play a sound file that, for example, informs you about the maximum speed.
  •  Finally, when you're really close to the POI, CheckPOInt can play another sound file as a last warning.


But where do you get your overlays from? The simplest way is to make use of CheckPOInts synchronization features.

When you come across a POI that is not in any of your overlays yet, you can record your current position by pressing one of the so called "application launch" buttons on your Pocket PC: record your own POI's!

Finally CheckPOInt allows you to show the address of one of your contacts on TTN's map!

CheckPOInt is available in multiple languages: English, French, German, Italian and Dutch.
