How to add POI to VIA 52 from MacBook Pro ?

Hi,
I have a VIA 52, I have downloaded a .ov2 and .bmp file from the motorsport website I'm using, but don't seem to be able to add the files to my tom-tom using my Apple MacBook Pro laptop, can only find instructions to suit a Windows based computer.
Macbook running latest Sierra 10.12.6
I did manage to add a poi file last year and worked fine, but can't remember how. Only used this tomtom once a year ago when purcahsed, for same motorsport event info.
Any help be most appreciated.
Thanks, Deano

    As your device is updated via WiFi you need to add them to MyDrive then sync the POIs with your device see this video

    Hi
    @Deanom3
    The POI .Ov2 files are loaded using the MyDriveWeb Route Planner
    The MDW Route planner is Web Browser based and not O/S specific

    Note... You can't install the associated .BMP file, you can only use the Tomtom generic Icons for displaying on the driving Map
