    The Go 1535 NEVER used Home, it requires MyDriveConnect. Get it at tomtom.com/getstarted.

    I have MyDriveConnect but I still cant find or install 3rd party branded POI's.
    How do I do this? I have them on my go live.

    When the device is connected to the computer and MyDriveConnect is running, there will be a small tomtom icon in the notification area of the computer (next to the clock).

    Click the icon and links appear. One is 'Manage Community Content'. Click that and you'll find the opportunity to add various items to the device, including poi files.

    Thanks dhn, my big problem is that the brand logos (Tim Hortons, 7/11, Walmart, etc.) are BMP and won't show on my GO520 WiFi

    Sadly you are correct. May we all live long enough to see that functionality return.
