  • Thank you all for your consideration in clearing up this mystery. I bought the 1525m as a second GPS for my wife because the interface is similar to my Go 50, which I like very much. For now I plan on manually creating a My Places list for her, but eventually I would like to experiment with the techniques which you have…

  • I have followed your instructions and tried several times. My 1525 has approx. 30 Favorites, but MyDrive is not transferring them individually from the device to MyDrive/My Places. As a result of previous attempts, there is a Favourites.ov2 on my computer's drive. In My Drive / My Places, there are selections for Favorites…
  • Thank you very much for the information. The Via 1525 does not have voice control. Regarding the list of instructions, much of the time, if not most, the driver is concentrating on driving and it is not a good idea to start flipping through screens. With the feature that I mentioned, it is only necessary to touch the…
