POI's on new TomToms

 

Do the newer TomTom models still allow POI's to be uploaded to them from a PC?

Yes, but they do so in a different way, using different software.

Instead of the old Home application, which essentially worked as a file manager, you will need to install TomTom's MyDrive application and use it.

What he said,
mydrive creates a web portal to the gps, allows file transfer,
not as intuitive,
something to do with file system being not public domain

My Drive

The MyDrive is used for updates also. Not to bad to navigate once you get the hang of it.

Thanks!

Thanks for that info! So I won't be able to go directly into the MAPS folder on my TT to upload POI's like I do on my current TT? Is the file format (.OV2) the same on the new TT's or has that changed too?

Same .ov2, .bmp format, the

Same .ov2, .bmp format, the transfer sends image and data files as one, no direct access to the gps file system
