I have done it before through Tomtom Community and made a bookmark on Google to go there quickly, but now I get a message "page not found".

Can anyone help me with this matter please.

    Hi
    @KwirkeeBirds
    I cannot use MyDrive to upload POI. Does anyone know how to upload POI to older devices such as my VIA 125? (Snip)

    You should be able to do it via the MyDrive Connect app. (on a PC or Mac). Start it, right click on its icon in the task bar and "Manage Community Content".
