Is there a way to transfer Favourites/My Places from MyDrive to Go Live 1005?

Hi everyone,
As far as I know (and hopefully I'm wrong) this device is too old to be fully compatible with MyDrive (http://uk.support.tomtom.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/19639/~/transferring-items-from-mydrive-to-your-navigation-device)

But are there any other ways how to transfer Favourites/My Places from the Route planner/MyDrive (See pic below) to the device rather than doing it manually directly in the device?

Sorry if it all sounds a bit muddled but I really hope you got the point :)

Thanks in advance!

    Hi
    I use this method as a workaround for my "AAAFavorite" POI Category... Your POI Category titles could be "ShoppingPlaces" in one folder, "MyCarParks" etc... in another folder

    Create a POI Category with your Favourite places
    Using your PC to build your own Favourites Database and load them into your NAV3 Device
    Download the Free Tyre to Travel Basic..... http://www.tyretotravel.com/download-tyre/
    Tyre To Travel uses Google Maps and the large screen on your PC to view the maps, it easier than to scrolling around the screen of your Tomtom NAV3 Device to add new Favourites

    (1)..... Run Tyre to Travel
    Wait for Tyre to stop being busy

    (2).....Double Click on the Tyre map at the position you would like to create a POI or use the yellow box in Tyre to search for addresses postcodes etc...

    (3)….. When you are planning your Personalised POI Categories and to prevent double entry's in your POI Category..... Edit the names of your individual POI's so they each POI has a unique name that means something to you or modify the Name offered by Tyre so it becomes unique

    (3.1)..... When you have finished compiling your list

    (3.2)….. From the Tyre "File Tab" select "Convert to a TomTom POI File”

    e5b145ab-3a27-4fab-8142-8acd71b104de.png(3.3)….. From the Tyre "File Tab” Select “Save as" I saved my file to the Desktop as "AAAFavorites"... The AAA prescript forces the POI category to the top of the POI Category list on the device so that it's easy to find

    Note: Saving a file is the only way I have found to give the file the name you want rather than the default name
    It’s also handy to have a backup of your .Ov2 file on your PC
