How do I transfer my favorites & POIs on my via 1525 to a new Go 620?

I have a via 1525 that is still working well and have used for several years. I have 100s of locations that we have visited and many favorites stored on the device on a micro-SD card. How do I transfer these to a new Go 620?

    Hi @macnicol

    To save and transfer the favorites of your VIA1525 to your GO620 Wifi see this FAQ and follow the process:

    https://us.support.tomtom.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/24868/

    You can have multiple POI files xxx.ov2 but maximum 2MB for each file.
