How do I store "Where I am right now" as a favorite? — TomTom Community

How do I store "Where I am right now" as a favorite?

Using a TomTom Via 1525M 5" TouchScreen. Our older TomTom would let us input a new "Favorite" (I think they changed the name to something annoying like "My Places" ??) and tell it "where I am, right now". This was highly useful for when the street address was not recognized or the TomTom thought it was somewhere other than where we wanted to be taken. Or when we didn't *know* the closest address and weren't near a cross street.

Has this capability been removed? I can't find a way to store a new named location without typing in an address as if I were inputting a destination. I want it to save "where I am, right now" as the location.

    Saving your Current position as a MyPlace

    Tapping the Direction of travel pointer (Above the + & - signs)

    Toggles the map view between the Driving & Planning views
    If you are using the North-up overview planning Map
    The direction of travel pointer... is flatter more squat

    If you want to save your present location to 'MyPlaces'....

    (1)... Switch to the North-up overview planning Map
    Long Tap on the Chevron Location cursor (Tap and hold for + 1 second) a Quick menu opens... Tap the 3Dot Icon Tap 'Add to MyPlaces'

    (2)... Switch to the North-up overview planning Map
    Long Tap anywhere on the screen (Tap and hold for + 1 second) a Quick menu opens... Tap the 3Dot Icon Tap 'Add to MyPlaces'

    Note... Long and short taps give different menu option

    For example... Short Tap of the screen
    (1)... With the screen displaying Driving View Map... Tap in the Arrowhead Location cursor --> Tap Mark Location
    Tap 4Dot (.... Menu) --> Myplaces... Scroll down to Mark Locations --> Tap on the required Marked location --> Tap Add to MyPlaces --> Rename the location as required

    For example... Long Tap of the screen
    (2)...With the screen displaying the North-up Overview Planning Map
    Pinch Zoom the Planning Map to Max --> Tap in the Arrowhead Location cursor --> Tap Mark Location
    Tap 4Dot (.... Menu) --> Myplaces... Scroll down to Mark Locations --> Tap on the required Marked location --> Tap Add to MyPlaces --> Rename the location as required

    Hi @AHunter3

    Think the following is what you do.

    Tap your Current position Chevron. ( Black marker appears and a sub menu)
    Tap Mark Location
    Tap Menu
    Tap My Places.
    Scroll Down and Tap Marked Locations ( at the end of you Favourites list)
    Tap the time the Location was Marked
    Tap Add to My Places and Name as required.

    The position will disappear from the Mark Location List and appear in your My Places list .

    I haven't done it but my partner took my printout of this thread and successfully entered two locations. Thanks! I don't know which of the two instruction-versions was the one that "answered the question" but one or the other did.
