how to delete or edit favorite?

is there a way to do that?

also, i wonder if it's me or is tomtom's poi search completely sucks?

i tried to search for dmv by the city, nothing.

then i searched for fry's electronics and only one showed up.

with garmin's, i remembered it'd give you a listing of all the fry's in the particular county i live in.

Edited:

Don't know which unit you have, but you can delete routes, saved as Itineraries, POI's and Favorites, but not individual Recent Destinations.  individual POI's or Favorites .

 

You can edit POI's, and Favorites by going to Change Preferences, then to Manage POI's, or Manage Favorites.

To delete a Favourite...


1. Tap the screen to bring up the Main Menu.
2. Tap Change preferences to open the Preferences menu.
3. Tap Manage Favourites.
4. Tap the Favourite you want to delete.
5. Tap Delete.

 

And as far as the POI your are right! As "they" say it ain't a Garmin...

Thanks for the tip Icole.

 

I have saved so many favourites because I like easy access to different places, but was worried about cleaning up old entries and deleting them. Your instructions were very helpful, for an old guy like me.

 

Cheers:smileytongue:

Why is there no way to edit Favorites? The POI list often does not give a distinctive name for stores with multiple addresses, but I'd like to retain the phone number while adding a more descriptive location. TomTom is a good product, but the interface looks like the programmers don't actualy use it or at least in the way  I need to.

Go to change preferences, Manage Favourites, then select the one you want to Rename or Delete.
