Go Premium X, I wanted to know how to proceed to insert a POI?

Good evening, I purchased Tom Tom Go Premium X, I wanted to know how to proceed to insert a POI in the memory card and not in the internal one. Connecting the Tom Tom to the PC does not make me see the memory card and therefore to download on this card how I must proceed. In the old Tom Tom GO 930 I had the power to choose via the tom tom home app if I wanted to enter the data on the internal card or on the memory card. In the meantime, I extend my best regards.

    Thanks, but this file Then where it will be downloaded to the internal memory or to the memory card since I would like to download it to the memory card and not to the internal card, using this procedure I cannot understand where it will be downloaded.

    Hi @tony1948

    You cannot choose where to download POI files. They are loaded as required by the operating software into the internal memory.

    Hi, I'm trying to synchronize my .ov2 file with my Premium X.
    I followed all steps mentioned in the guide but have yet to succeed.

    I uploaded the file in the MyDrive portal and it's now visible under the 'POI Files' tab under My Places on the portal as "Favorites.ov2".
    My Premium X GPS is connected to my MyDrive account but it doesn't show the Favorites under My Places on the device.

    I tried creating a regular POI via the portal and it sync'ed without a hitch. But for the life of me I can't seem to sync a .ov2 file with my device.

    Any suggestions?

    Hi @demude

    It could be that the Unit does not recognise the file despite it being an .ov2 file and worked an old unit.

    Try opening POI Editor on your PC and import the file to it then resave as a .ov2 file for Tomtom and you may well find it will then work when you reload it into the Premium.

    Also you can try to rename the Poi file. Some devices dont like the poi name "Favourite".
    Try it with the name e.g. "own poi" or testpoi

    Alright! This worked for me.

    Also I already tried importing it into an editor and re-saving it but that didn't work either.

    Thanks to both of you ;)
