    Hi
    @Fulvio73
    Welcome to the site....
    Sorry NO... MyDrive is for the NAV4 devices and above....
    The Via 120 is a NAV3 device and is not compatible with the MyDrive App or the MyDrive Web Route planner....
    The NAV3 devices have a very basic Itinerary planning system....
    All the planning is done on the small screen on the device....
    The Itinerary Route can only have a Start --> Four Stops and one of those stops being the End Stop (Destination)
    Also, the route cannot be saved for later use....

    Hi
    @Fulvio73
    When I was using my NAV3 Via 120 Live... I used this workaround....
    Create a POI file using the Start, the Stops and the Destination a POI locations....
    To create the POI .Ov2 File I used the Free, slightly quirky, but very good ITN Converter
    ITN Converter has a huge number of Map types The Tomtom Routes Map is included, the ITN Converter also Saves/Exports a huge number of route file types
    Here... https://discussions.tomtom.com/en/discussion/comment/1712711/#Comment_1712711
    Using the large screen on your PC to view the maps, it easier than to scrolling around the screen of your NAV3 device to find your waypoints (Stops)

    You can compile a route on your PC, and save it a "POI Category"... Inside the .Ov2 POI file will be your POI's
    (To force the Category to appear at the top of the POI categories list in your Tomtom... I called mine "AAA Trip (Put today's date or some trip identifier here)”
    Inside the POI category will be your POI's: on your Tomtom they will show in the order by distance from your present location.

    If you use some naming system like the suggestion below, when you load them on to your Tomtom they should end up in Numerical Order inside your POI Category.

    While you are planning your route using the ITN Converter, if you edit the names of your individual POI locations so they each POI has a unique name (Say Start --> "01stop", "02stop", "03stop" etc ... then the last one as "##End" the ## being the last Stop number)
    After you have planned your route save the POI .Ov2 file to the PC Desktop....
