There are three types of POIs
Targets - the points you specify in Orbis (for instance the starting point of your trip, which will be continually displayed on the map, will help you with orientation and in case of an emergency may help you get into safety)
Points of interest - points provided by third parties, such as GeoNames. These points may be searched by criteria you fill in.
Waypoints - the points you are instructed by the navigation to change direction at.
