Hello, I'm new here so please bear with me. I have a new VIA1415M. My first Navigation GPS. I'm trying to pick a destination using the select point on map function. It says to use the "map browser" for this. What and where is the map browser? All help will be greatly appreciated.

    I take it you are referring to page 19 of the manual http://download.tomtom.com/open/manuals/non-LIVE/TomTom-US-non-LIVE-RG-en-us.pdf
    Tap this button to select a point on the map as your destination using the map browser.

    "map browser" in this instance refers to the 2D map visible on your device which you pinch and slide to get to the position you want to use as your destination.

    Here's a guide:

    Where exactly do you see that 'map browser'? What steps did you take for it to appear?

    Sorry, yes that is the page in the manual I was reviewing. Your suggestion works for me; however, it's a bit tricky on this 4.5 inch screen. I'm sure with practice it will be fine. I will probably use this function quite often.
    Thanks very much for your response.

    I made a mistake when marking response "best answer". I'll learn.
