I can see on the map in which city and region the POI is in and in most cases I can also see the distance to my current location. So if I don't have at least a street name the information about the city and region alone (which is most likely autogenerated and therefore error-prone anyway) doesn't help. For my maps the additional size reduction of this is less than 1 % (which I don't understand BTW, should be more).

Actually it is much more. 0x4100 and bigger show no contact Information 
(this of course also includes all 0x1???? ) - Or has someone found any 
POI above 0x4099 show any kind of contact information????
We would also need to exclude all cities (0x0*) to 0x1199 do not show 
any contact information (I'm not sure whether 0x13?? to ox1f?? do show 
contact information - as I never used any POI inside this range). I 
don't know how to adapt your patch to ONLY put contact information for 
0x1300 - 0x4099 - but that is what we essentially need (maybe it is even 
0x2000 - 0x4099). Plus we need to exclude 0x0???? (e.g. 0x01709)

As a second patch I think we would really need an option to switch of 
the "fix my address" nonsense. It only takes up space. So either replace 
that text by a simple dot "." or get rid of adding contact info 
alltogether if there is no address/or other info we want to put once we 
have several keys that are added!
