I would like to add other points of interest (POI) to my GO ESSENTIAL, for example "Methane Distributors", but I can't find anything, what can I do? is it possible to insert other points of interest, as I did with the old GO500?
it's all new, it's all technological, but it can't find a supply of methane. With the Navigator I can go almost anywhere but I stay still in the middle of the road because I can't refuel my Fiat Multipla, it seems absurd to me !!!!
Please help me!!!

    You can add new points of interest with the Mydrive route planner.

    Thank you for your reply but the problem is to have a "database" of "methane distributors" to select during a trip, along the route or in the vicinity of the route. This is possible with the "charging stations" but my car is not electric but "methane gas". I am sure that my problem is also of many motorists who like me use methane gas. With the "Tomtom GO500", (no longer updatable with the new maps because it was obsolete), I had a database of CNG distributors that I could view on the map during the trip and decide to go and refuel or to continue and refuel at the next one. It was also possible to create a custom POI category, for example of restaurants, customers, or anything and save it for later viewing on the map. With the Tomtom "GO Essential 6" I don't understand if it's possible or how to do it. HELP!!!! HELP!!!

    Welcome to the site...
    Re... your GO 600... Only the early NAV2 GO 500 devices are Eol (End of Life)
    For the remaining range of NAV4 devices....
    See... The NAV4 devices the Maps fitted easily onto the 8GB of on-board Memory, but the Map sizes increases with every update...
    The GO 500 has the 8GB limit on-board Memory size on the NAV4 devices is an unfortunate, but real Catch22 situation....
    @VikramK or @lampard one of the Forum Moderators should pick this on Monday and add a new Smaller Map or Smaller Map set to the Account to get past the 'Catch22'
    Note... You may also receive a 'No Maps Found' error warning on the device....

    See Catch22...

    Further Info maybe Useful....
    Re your GO Essential... Displaying Personal POIs on the Driving View/Map
    Be aware... You can't install the POI associated .BMP files
    You can only use the 5 Tomtom supplied generic Icons....
