Can Custom POIs be Loaded into a Subaru TomTom

With stand alone GPS units, custom POIs can be loaded into the GPS unit.

We recently bought a 2019 Subaru Forester that comes with an in-dash TomTom based navigation unit. Can custom POI be loaded into in-dash navigation units?

    Hi @Steve_R.

    Welcome to the community :)

    The Subaru built in TomTom updates using TomTom HOME.

    So I think it should support adding custom POI's.

    I would recommend that you try this- Connect your SD card to your computer and copy the two files(*.bmp to match the *.ov2 file) in your map directory.

    Remove the SD card safely and then try to see if you are able to the loaded POI's..

    Regards

    The question concerns an in-dash navigation unit, no a stand-alone unit.

    PS: To my knowledge there is no SD card associated with the Subaru's In-dash navigation device.

    @Steve_R.

    I am not 100% sure about the adding of POI's for this model.

    That was the reason I said that "you can try"

    As per the documentation, we have the technical specification say that the SUBARU (H001SSC800) has an SD card slot.

    Btw.. How do you update the device maps?

    Where would the SD slot located?

    There are two USB ports.
    I had previously loaded a POI file that should have been in the TomTom format onto a USB drive, but the navigation unit did not seem to recognize any files as being available to load.

    The Starlink documentation refers to using the USB ports to update the maps, but is silent concerning the presence of an SD slot.

    I just tried to do an image search on "H001SSC800". Surprisingly, I didn't get anywhere. Very unusual. Is the Subaru H001SSC800 an n-dash unit?
