I transfered my POI from my old 5150 tom tom, but when i save a new POI on my new tom tom Pro 6250 there isn't an option to add to these files e.g. I have group just for Tesco Stores so i can keep them all together making it easy to locate

    How to import POIs, GPX files and Favourites in MyDrive

    MyDrive Web Route planner here...

    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

    Archie's POI Category has 31,184 POI locations, so the Map can be a little overcrowded ;)
