POIfriend.com is a GPS tagging community based in Toronto, Canada, that aims to connect people based on interest and location.

"Most users agree that many standard POIs pre-loaded on your GPS device are either out-of-date, incorrect, missing, and not personally relevant," the site says.

POIfriend.com was created to act as "An environment where the community builds content from 'bottom-up' to benefit everyone."

POIfriend, which stands for point-of-interest, covers a broad range of interests including Arts & Entertainment, Attractions & Events, Business & Industry, Family & Friends, Food & Beverage, Health & Fitness, Real Estate, Shopping, Sports and more.

Companies like Ford and Denny's use it to promote their businesses, by making it easy to pinpoint individual locations. Not surprisingly, the highest rated POI at the moment is Tim Hortons
