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.

Amazing GPS: I once was lost but now am found.

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).

Languages on XL 340

How can I delete unused languages to create more unused memory?

i need my favorites from my via 1605 into my new garmin 2689lmt

Hello all! first post here and of course it's all about questions:) I love my via 1605 but alas the unit is having some serious hardware issues. I purchased a garmin 2689lmt and I need the favorites file out of the 1605 to install on my garmin. Believe it or not, there are still addresses in areas that tomtom nor garmin can find. Is there anyway to do this?

POI files and TomTom VIA 1605

Since purchasing my new TomTom I've been customizing it with the same POI files I had on my old one, most of them I got here. Anyway for the old unit I would download the CSV file and convert it to .ov2 with POI Editor. Is there any way to convert the CSV files so that the addresses of the POIs are displayed on my TomTom?

Info needed on VIA 1605M

I posted a similar thread about another unit. Sorry if I'm a bother. I am looking to upgrade my XXL 540. It's 4 years old and has served me very well but has run out of space. I'm very leery of the new GO series because of mixed reviews I have seen and limited functionality. I am looking at the VIA 1605M which is still available at Amazon as a possibility.

Seeking info on TomTom START 55M

I'm possibly going to replace my XXL 540 and was looking at this unit. Even though it has been discontinued by TomTom it is still available on Amazon. For anyone familiar with this unit i have a couple of questions about it. Does it have Itinerary planning like the XXL 540? Also can 3rd party POI files like those here be loaded to it.
