Hi , My Name is Erick

I have a Tomtom GO 610, with many favorite places stored, now I bought a kadjar renault, with navigation system R-LINK that includes tomtom gps, can I transfer my favorite places from my GO610 to my Kadjar ?.

    Hi Erickt

    Welcome to the community and sorry for my late reply..

    The cloud storage through MyDrive which is available for the GO 610 is not supported for the built in devices.

    Unfortunately the transfer will not work..

    Hi Erickt,

    If you could save all your Favorites as TomTom-POIs (OV2-Format) on your PC, then there is a solution ...

    For long Time, when I have a Renault Kangoo with Carminat TomTom Live 2.0 always the Favorites are gone, when I made an Update and after that the Carminat starts in a reboot-loop. Then I decided to use a own POI-Category "My Favs" instead of Favorites. In the Folder "Europe" (is the Map-Folder) then was a file MyFavs.OV2. This I could transfer with a trick to my actual RLink Evolution.

    Oh,... just a moment ... is it a new Kadjar? Then it is the RLink II with only TomTom-Maps and Services. Then the Navigation-Software is iGO-Primo from NNG. Then as intermediate step you must convert the TomTom-POI (OV2) to iGO-Primo-POI (kml-Format). This you can do via Web-Service Online.

    Many users have asked for the facility to backup their MyPlaces to a PC
    The MyDrive Route planner allows you to download your data from the Tomtom Cloud
    The file looks like unusable Gobbledegook, the MyPlaces can be found in the file

    Hi Erickt,

    to convert OV2 in KML (or other formats) here is a online-tool

    To manipulate a RLink-SD-Card with a Windows-PC you can use (at your own risk) the RLink-Explorer by Djeman
