Is it possible to add markers with warnings from gps co ordinates.

I need to mark bridges that must be crossed at greatly reduced speeds due to excessive weight of my truck.

    Hi
    @Ikfoto
    Welcome to the site....
    The latests NAV4 or NAV5 (Wi-Fi) devices.... Installing 3rd party POI Categories... You use the MyDrive Web Route planner
    Here... https://mydrive.tomtom.com

    See Tomtom Video....
    How to import POIs, GPX files and Favourites in MyDrive


    Displaying Personal POIs on the Driving View/Map
    Be aware....
    You can't install the POI associated .BMP files or Warning Sounds

    You can only use the 5 Tomtom supplied generic Icons....

    But you can use one icon for for more than one POI category i.e... place all your fuel categories under one Icon, then if you tap on a nearby 'say' Fuel Icon a Quick menu opens --> Tap the 3Dot Icon for more options & more Information

    Setup... After installing your Personal or 3rd party POIs....Tap 4Dot (....Menu) --> Settings --> Appearance --> Show POI lists on the Map
    It says a restart is required, but I've never found it to be necessary
    After choosing the Generic Icon.. Tap the coloured (^) Icon screen top right... Pinch zoom the Map, the Generic POI Icons all appear live and working
    Note... The Generic POI Icons disappear when the Map is highly zoomed out (I guess so you can scroll around a clear Map to find your location)
    The Icon reappear as you zoom back in again

    Here I'm using the Yellow Pentagon Icons --> National Trust

    Thanks for that info!

    If I enter an address and the gps sets a route. Will these poi automatically be shown on the screen as I approach regardless of I select them?
