Trying to transfer "my places" onto TomTom Start 62

Hi
I have 2 separate maps on my Tomtom Start 62. Online on Tomtom Mydrive Route Planner, I have created lots of favourites in "my places". I have tried clicking on "send to device" and the website says syncing was successful, but I cant find them on my Tomtom (I have tried changing between maps without success). Please can anyone help or advise what i'm doing wrong?

    Hi

    (1)... To Sync your MyPlaces.... From the MyDive Web Route planner to the device
    The NAV4 (None Live) Start 62 the device need to be connected over USB with MyDrive Connect running in the Background

    (2)... You will also need to be logged into MyDrive on the device
    NAV4 Devices Tap 4Dot (.... Menu) --> Tomtom Services... MyDrive
    Login with your Account... Email & Password

    Thank you so much - I hadn't realised I had to log in on my device as well (I didn't realise you could) - the minute it did that it all synced - all 85 "my places" are now on my device :) :) :)

    You're welcome, glad you're sorted :)

    Maybe Useful....
    Many users have asked for the facility to backup their MyPlaces to a PC
    The MyDrive Route planner allows you to download your data from the Tomtom Cloud

    The file looks like unusable Gobbledegook, the MyPlaces can be found in the file
