Hi, I have just upgraded my Start 25 to a GO 61. I backed up my favourites on 'MyDrive Connect' but I can't see to find a way to import my old favourites onto my new device. Can anyone help?

    Thanks. That is exactly what I was trying. Seems like it will import other ov2 files, it just doesn't want to import the one I created with my favourites. The only difference I can see is that there is no bmp file to go with my favourites ov2 file whereas there is with the others.

    Unfortunately, I have traded my old Sat Nav in so to get this new one so I can't even go and back it up again. However, I have downloaded an application that allows me to look inside the ov2 file and I can see all the addresses are there, so worst case scenario is to add them all in again manually

    Hi kaulpage,

    Unfortunately, POI icons are not currently supported.

    Please, make sure your file doesn't exceed the maximum size of 2 MB. For more information and troubleshooting tips for MyDrive, please see this FAQ.

    Cheers, Mikko

    Hi, you could try with an online ov2-csv file converter like this https://tomtom.gps-data-team.com/poi/ov2-to-csv-process.php;
    than edit the cvs file and re-convert in ov2 standard.
