Subaru Forester In-Dash TomTom Navigation Current?

I am beginning to suspect that the base map in our 2019 Subaru Forester is obsolete. The base map is labeled "North America 2017.03". An update was released on April 4, 2019, but it does not seem to have made the base map current.

We recently took an extended road trip. Too many roads were "missing". We also took along our Garmin Nuvi 650 and it did better.

POI proximity alerts on TomTom?

[I posted the below earlier on another thread as a comment, but decided on second thought that I probably should have asked as a separate post. Apologies if anyone is reading this twice.]

Hi Everybody!

I just bought a new TomTom Start 52. I can't figure out how to enable an audio warning when I get near red light cameras or to display them on the map while driving.

Check your TomTom for potential April 6th issue

A review of the TomTom GO 620

This is a replacement for a TomTom VIA 1605, which was my 3rd TomTom unit. I've used TomTom's on many trips and relay like them. The GO 620 has features I really like, WiFi connectivity, voice recognition and the interface to use my phone hands-free. I like the display and it seems to respond quicker then the 1605, giving a more accurate real time representation of travel.

POI's on new TomToms

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

Does anybody use a TomTom on this site?

TomTom GO 600 6" GPS

I just picked one up and find its one of the best option out there. I love the option where it syncs to my pc or phone automatically. Has anyone used the the thrill route option on it?


TomTom bmp icons

Does the *bmp icon file need to have the same name format as the *ov2 file. i.e will the shell.bmp pop up on the screen for a POI in the shellcanada.ov2 file or does the file look for a `shellcanada.bmp` etc etc


Dollar Tree US Stores csv


The Dollar Tree csv file seems to be incomplete.

It does not have city, state, zip, phone number.

Would be great if someone can share some information about the availability of same.


Updating my wifes tomtom

Can I update my wifes tom tom in POI Factory

Hello everyone!!

Tom Tom GO 50 and current update 15.600

Greetings, Being new to the nav world and new to Tom Tom I want to pass on that there is an issue in updating their new version 15.600 software. It effects the sound level of the nav unit and will not allow you to adjust the sound level. The sound is lower that the road noise and makes it very hard to hear directions.

Shout out for TomTom Support

I've read a lot of posts, not necessarily here, but around the web, that TomTom Support is not that good. Well, after reading this, you decide.

Recent problem with TomTom freezing up, but it may happen to other brands as well

Recently after uploading several large POI files to my TomTom Pro 7150, it started to freeze up every time I tried to "edit" the POI file (like putting an audible warning on the POI for example). I guessed, and guessed correctly, that the huge POI files (containing over 8000 entries) were just too much for the unit to handle, memory-wise.

Uploading Basecamp files to TomTom Rider

Can I transfer routes created on Basecamp to a TomTom Rider? I realise its not as simple as plugging in the TomTom and pressing upload, but could I export the route as a .gpx file (say) and then import it into TomTom, or do I need another software tool to convert?

POI Editor for TomTom

I found this great piece of software while reading through the posts here at PF.

I highly recommend this program. Been using it over a year now and I can attest that it is fast and very stable (don't think it's ever crashed).
