I posted this at but cant put any links there so have posted it here for everyones benefit.

All programs included are freeware!

projects homepage:

UPDATED 6 March 2008

Requirements: .Net 2.0
.Net 2.0:

I have changed the way the files are downloaded. Basically from now on I hope to only change the main executable while all the .dlls and supporting files won’t change.
The supporting files can be downloaded from:
The main executable can be downloaded from:
You need to extract them both into the same folder.

The program is run from the command line it takes no parameters unless you want to automate the downloading of the database. In this case you need to pass in your username and password.
zenbu4TomTom username password
I have included 2 batch files:
zenbu4TomTom no download.cmd double click on this to run zenbu4TomTom if you chosen not to use the automated download.
zebu4TomTom Download.cmd you first need to edit this file with notepad and change username and password to your zenbu username and password. Then just double click it to start the process.

If you choose not to use the automated download need to visit login then click on "Zenbu Complete Export" to download the zenbu database. Once the download is finished extract zenbu.csv to the same folder as zenbu4TomTom.exe.

I hope you enjoy using zenbu POI on your TomTom.

Please provide me any feedback or suggestions via this forum.

This has been tested on a TOMTOM ONE XL – Latest version of Maps and Firmware as at 29-Feb-2008.
