    Hi @woldsweather

    Go to My Places on the GO Camper and scroll down to the end of the My Places you have saved and the Installed 3rd party POI files are listed there.

    Also if you

    Tap menu
    Tap Settings
    Tap Appearance
    Tap Show Po lists on map

    you will also see the files listed there, along with the Camper specific files that come with the unit. You can now Tap Hide and you will be offered 5 generic icons to select from which will then be what you see on the map. As there are only 5 icons to choose from it is an idea to collate similar POI file types under the same icon. When you Tap the selected icon on the `map it will display a short description of the POI ie Sainsbury's , Morrisons, Tesco etc.

    Hello;
    To check that your email address identifier + GPS password are the same as Mydrive.

    Hi @woldsweather

    Are you logged into the same account on the Go Camper and if you go to My Drive on the Camper does it say Stop Syncing bottom right.

    If the Go Camper is logged into the same account and says Stop Syncing then I would suggest the following.

    Load the files into something like POI Edit on your PC and resave for a Tomtom there. After doing that delete the existing files from Your account in My Drive and Import the newly saved files.

    Hi @woldsweather

    Tap Menu
    Tap Settings

    There you should find a My Drive icon. When you set the unit up you would have been asked to log into your My Drive Account. If you did not do it then when you go to My Drive in Settings you will be asked to input the account details.

    Hi @woldsweather

    As I described above you

    Tap menu
    Tap Settings
    Tap Appearance
    Tap Show Poi lists on map

    you will also see the files listed there, along with the Camper specific files that come with the unit. You can now Tap Hide against any you want to display on the map and you will be offered 5 generic icons to select from which will then be what you see on the map. As there are only 5 icons to choose from it is an idea to collate similar POI file types under the same icon. When you Tap the selected icon on the `map it will display a short description of the for example Supermarket POI ie Sainsbury's , Morrisons, Tesco etc.

    Please note that you can import OV2 files with a maximum size of 2 MB from your computer by proceeding as follows:

    Hi @woldsweather

    Yes when you select one of the icons then that Icon will appear on the map where a POI is. The shapes or colours do not have any significance other than which one you would like to represent the POI.

    Should you decide you don’t a particular POI set to appear on the map then you do the reverse so that the word Hide appears against the file

    I chose the squares and they are now appearing on the map but clicking on them just says null.
