Hello

First of all I used to use Garmin drive smart until I switched to tomtom.

When searching for supermarkets, it is very difficult there is no category for it as it was in Garmin. I have to know the name of the supermarket to search for it. for example: when I am in Austria and I want to know the nearest supermarket how? Also the software dos not feel smooth some time and there are some lags. Garmin was better in term of POI Searching.

I also would love to support Arabic language in the interface and the keyboard

    Hi @mohanad

    If you have not done so already first of all I would recommend that you go to Settings/System and select the Search Mode as Quick Search which I find is much better than Step By Step.

    Then Tap Menu/Tap Search and input Supermarket. You will now see just below where you have typed 2 columns and the Right one says Shop (Supermarket). If you Tap Shop (Supermarkets) then you will get a list of Small and Major Supermarket stores radiating from where you are. You can when in Search Tap the World top right you can change the search to Near you, in a town or city or near a Long/Lat site. When you get a list of shops in the right column then Tap the .Blue Keyboard Icon then the 2 Ballons Icon you can see where the Shops are on the map.

    Hi @mohand

    The list should not be just of shops of any type but as I suggested small and large Supermarkets. Ie from the small local convenience store to a large supermarket.

    Hi @mohanad

    Try typing Hypermarket. This may eliminate some of the smaller ones for you.

    the problem is it shows all type of shops nearby.

    I just want the supermarkets to be appear in the search.

    for example: when I go to France and search for shops, How i know if it is supermarket or not. i don't know the names of supermarkets in France

    Hi @mohanad

    I have raised this with TT. The GO Premium and similar devices seem to have the issue but the GO Discover and the App I have seem to focus the results more on small and large Supermarket.
