Route planning / maximizing screen real estate

wschomburgwschomburg Posts: 5 [Apprentice Seeker]
Hello;
1) Is it possible to display only a subset of favorites on the route planer?
I have a collection of Favorite places that I have collected over the years. Now I would like to plan a trip but having all my favorites on the screen is making the screen very cluttered and busy making it difficult to plan.
2) Is there anyway to disable the very large white TomTom banner in the top of the route planning screen?

    The MyDrive Route planner allows you to download your data from the Tomtom Cloud

    b]Name the .Ov2 file & Save to the PC Desktop[/b]
    I saved my .Ov2 file to the Desktop as "_Favorites (
    Note "_Favorites.ov2" The Underscore before the "_F" is not displayed on the Tomtom screen, but it forces the POI category to the top of the list....

    You can now delete the MyPlaces that aren't required (Saves the MyPlaces blue star screen clutter) and use your New Favorites POI Category instead
