Question Tim Hortons locations on GPS in Ontario ?

OK, this is a stupid question...but... anyone ever find POIs (or whatever... I'm new to the GPS thing) of Tim Horton's locations in Ontario?

Let us assume that one may be so obsessed with Timmies coffee, that being out and about on a new adventure suddenly gets a craving and says..."well, let's just see what the GPS says where the closes TImmies is so I can feed my addiction"

I'm just asking for a friend...

I found this one after a few mins on google, bust since i'm still waiting for my GPS to show up at my door, I can't try it out... it's a zip file containing a .csv file, which I don't think i can open with GoogleEarth (i think it only takes .gpx and .loc)

The Zumo map software installed has them all listed. The guy at the bike show this weekend went to pains to explain to his audience how you can easily find the nearest Tim Horton's.

I swear the raspberry filled timbits are laced with narcotics.

If I knew I could find timmies w/ a gps I would have bought one by now.

In Columbus, maybe.

Load the POI's, and they're all there...

I use a Garmin GPS 60CX with City Navigator North America V8.

There are lots of Tim Hortons listed. there are variations on the spelling.. Tim Horton, Tim Hortons, Tim Horton Donuts, Tim Hortons Donuts.

You sure a hell don't need a gps to find a tim's in canada. There is one on almost every friggin corner. They are more common than gas stations. If I can only jet my bike to run on doubledouble, i would never run out of fuel.

When I lived in London, it seemed that there were two on every corner, i.e. Wharncliffe & Southdale, where there was one by Hully Gully and another one on the opposite corner.

Now it's accurate for me.

The question was asked a long time ago but here goes anyway:

PoiFriend list 3385 locations in Canada and the US.

Tim Hortons locations

Compare that to Starbucks - 6312 locations in the US only!

But I bet this number is going down by the minute...
