Good morning. I would like to remove two items from My Places.
First, Charging Stations. these are of no use/interest and I would prefer not to have them or be reminded to update the list.
Second , when I got my 6200 I transferred a file of destinations from my old Via 135 thanks to help found in the forum. The list which I called ''All from VIA''has now been weeded out and can be removed, but how ?
Grateful for any advice. Best wishes
Oars

    Hi @oars
    The charging station updates are a part of the embedded service for your TomTom GO 6200 like TomTom Traffic and map updates. The service cannot be cancelled, the updates can be avoided by de-selecting them when offered,

    All your favourites/ my places should be listed when you are logged into MyDrive web.

    We can go to 'My Places' and click on the delete icon to remove places you don't need.

    To remove the charging stations tap on the screen of your device:
    menu/Settings/Appearance/show Poi-lists on map and there set "chargingstations to hide

    I don't know how you saved your last destinations from the via135, but if you saved them as a Poi list, they can be deleted from MyDrive.

    Excellent response from Vikram and Lochfrass. Thank you. My 'all from VIA' file has gone and I understand that there is no way to permanently delete the charging points listing.
    Never mind !
