Go Live 825 - How to transfer OV2 POI files onto the device

I have previously transferred OV2 files to my Go 825 device via either the the My Drive App or the Community pages.

However I haven't done this for some time and it appears that these features have been removed (Deprecated)? WHY?

Personally I would prefer to just drag and drop the OV2 files into the relevant directory on the SD Card (or main nav unit)but this is no longer a supported feature.

I am getting to the point where I would like to throw the unit at a TomTom Design engineer as the features that were once available on a XDA PDA are no longer available on these alleged full function Sat Nav units.

If it is still possible to transfer OV2 files (I create tours for a car club I belong to) then would some one please advise either

1) how to do it with the available software products we are forced by TomTOM to use
2) tell me that it no longer exists and I will get my copper mallet out and take my frustration out on the sat nav unit itself and then bin it.
