How navigate without adresses

I have GO Premium 6 X but I have not found a way to navigate with the map on the device.
Is that possible at all?
On the old GO 950 navigator, it was possible and I used it often.
I also use the navigator when I go to pick berries, but there are no addresses on the forest roads

    Not sure what you mean to do. You certainly can use the device without entering a destination to see what roads are around you. Or you can search for a business name or an address or even the Lat/Lon coordinates of a destination. And in some cases you can see more generic things, such as petrol stations in the area.

    But with new devices you can't have it show you every business of a particular type in the area (except for parking or petrol/charging stations). So you can't ask for every school, or every airport. But that said, you CAN load your own list of places which you can obtain from elsewhere and have them show on your map.

    In all three Modes, the device warned of.....
    Exceeding the Speed Limit
    Fixed Speed cameras
    Mobile Speed camera Hot Spots

    I can't see any reason why.....
    Approaching Stationary Queuing Traffic

    Any 3rd Party POI you have loaded and set to display on the Map... All display the Tomtom generic Icon OK

    Sorry for my bad English.
    I use a translator to help
    I mean, I want to pick a device on the map where I want to go.
    Tomtom GO 950: first select the button "Navigate to ..." , then select the button "Point on map and" finally tap where I want to go and last go there

    How to do it with GO Premium X?

    Hi
    @MJH48

    You cannot Pan/Scroll the Driving view screen, you can only zoom the Driving view screen
    You have to switch to the Planning Overview screen to Pan/Scroll the screen
    ________________________

    The default view at Start-up without a route planned is normally the North-Up overview Planning Map
    Pinch Zoom and Swipe the screen to the required location
    'Long Tap' (Tap and hold for +1 second) on the required location --> A quick menu opens --> Tap the ( Drive ) Icon... The device will calculate your route to your new destination

    Note... (1) A 'Quick Tap' and 'Long Tap' of the screen gives different menu options
    Note.. (2) In the Quick menu if you tap the 3Dot menu there are more options available
    _________________________

    Tap the Direction of Travel icon to to cycle through the Map view options....

    If you repeat tap on the Direction of Travel Icon, above the + and - Signs
    the display will toggle between the North-up Overview Planning Map and the Driving Map view chosen in the Setting menus i.e... 2D (In direction of travel) or 3D

    mulqpd39pdff.jpg
    The direction of Travel Icon is thinner more pointed in the 2D in direction of travel or 3D Driving view

    The sequence as I see it....
    I'm driving using my chosen driving view in the Setting Menus...
    For me 2D (In direction of Travel)
    1st Tap --> North-up Overview planning Map
    2nd Tap --> 2D (Indirection of Travel) Max Zoom ???
    3rd Tap --> Return to my chosen driving view (2D (In direction of Travel) Normal Zoom

    Hi YamFazMan.

    Sorry this is not answer my question
    I mean, I want to choose where I want to go on the map of navigator .
    I also want to navigate without addresses, for example, an unnamed road to a friend’s cottage
    I can do it with my Tomtom GO950, but I couldn't find a way to do it with my GO Premium 6X

    This was exactly what I was looking for, but I couldn’t find.

    There is how adding a stop to your route using the map.
    There don't tell how you can planning route to point of map

    Sorry YamFazMan
    Your story was too long and I couldn’t find the crux of it.
    I'm a simple man, so the thing must be to keep it simple
    All I needed from your story was this.
    Zoom and Swipe the screen to the required location
    'Long Tap' (Tap and hold for +1 second) on the required location --> A quick menu opens --> Tap the ( Drive ) Icon... The device will calculate your route to your new destination

    Thanks anyway
