Sorry if this has already been covered.

Is it possible to display POIs on my GO Premium as I did on my GO 940 LIVE. Previously there was a menu to click which POIs to display in the map view . Now it seems that I have to import POIs from my old device but the only ones that I can do this with are ones downloaded from the 'TomTom Community' and these are not displayed in the map view as they were with the GO 940 LIVE

    You use the MyDrive Web Route planner

    See Tomtom Video... How to import POIs, GPX files and Favourites in MyDrive

    Displaying Personal POIs on the Driving View/Map
    Be aware... You can't install the POI associated .BMP files
    You can only use the Tomtom supplied generic Icons
    But you can use one icon for for more than one POI category i.e... place all your fuel categories under one Icon, then if you tap on a nearby 'say' Fuel Icon a Quick menu opens --> Tap the 3Dot Icon for more options & more Information

    Setup... After installing your Personal or 3rd party POIs....Tap 4Dot (....Menu) --> Settings --> Appearance --> Show POI lists on the Map
    It says a restart is required, but I've never found it to be necessary
    After choosing the Generic Icon.. Tap the coloured (^) Icon screen top right... Pinch zoom the Map, the Generic POI Icons all appear live and working
    Note... The Generic POI Icons disappear when the Map is highly zoomed out (I guess so you can scroll around a clear Map to find your location)
    The Icon reappear as you zoom back in again
