    Hi @chrismars

    Don’t know if you can. Maybe @VikramK can help on this matter. Look back here later.

    Hi @chrismars

    Welcome to the community!
    The Citreon built-in unfortunately does not support sync with MyDrive Cloud so transfer using it that way it not possible.

    Welcome to the site....
    Can you install 3rd Party or Personal .Ov2 POI Categories to the Citroën built in satnav ???

    If 'Yes'....
    Many users have asked for the facility to back up 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
    Click on image to enlarge....

    User Ethoz....
    Posted a link to a excellent Tomtom MyPlaces to .Ov2 POI file converter tool

    There's a Mac & PC version ....

    Download and install TomtomPOI.exe from the above link
    Note... I have Virus checked the file with Avast Anti Virus all OK
    Run TomtomPOI

    1st Click on Open...
    A New Filer Window opens
    Find & Select the (Your user name goes here)_MyDrive.json.gz file
    Saved from the Tomtom MyDrive Web Route planner
    Click on the 'Open' Box

    2nd Click on Copy
    3rd Click on Yes
    4th Click on Yes
    5th Click on Save
    Name the .Ov2 POI file Something like 'My Places' & Save to the PC Desktop

    If the Citroën built in satnav allows the installation of 3rd party or Personal POI Categories... Install the 'My Places' .Ov2 POI file....

    Stay Safe.... ATB YFM
