I believe that TomTom displays POI within a certain distance of your location on the map. If you are in the UK and your only map is of Eastern Europe, your location will not appear on the map, and the POI will not appear, even though they may be local to you.

I believe that the only solution to your request is for you to purchase and install the UK map. As far as I know, the only place you can purchase TomTom maps is on their web site, which is at:

I see a few possibilities, although each is just a guess.

First, you originally mentioned that you had a unit with an Eastern Europe map. Depending upon the specific model, your TomTom may have the space to store both the Eastern Europe map and the UK map at the same time. Am I correct in assuming that you currently have the UK map selected for use?

Second, when you go to the "Show POI on map" option, does one of the POI files listed have the name that you are seeking? If it does, have you verified that this file is checked to be shown on screen?

Third, what icon is associated with the POI in which you are interested? If you have not associated a special icon with them, the GPS will display a generic icon that you may not recognize as the POI you desire.

With best wishes,
