    Ok, now we can sync favorites with mydrive, fine, but PDI can not yet edit :(:(

    I save a lot of points of interest, such as customers and restaurants where I eat, I have some 500 customers and 500 restaurants, I can not save them as favorites, I would have map full of stars. Every time I have to add a new client or change its name, I have to: copy to the PC ov2 file, edit it with pdi editor, add the customer, save, copy it on your phone, A BIG annoyance!
    The solutions are 2:
    - Add the ability to edit POI
    - Add the ability to create subsets in favorites and organize them by category, and you can decide which see more of the map (for not having the full map)
    I hope this problem will be solved soon (to be able to save your favorite, we waited one year ..)

    You can create an .ov2 database with POI Pocket. They must be sorted (I did by Lat) TomPOIEdr) before transferred to the phone. You can also edit with that. I posted links previously. Best solution I've found since MS discontinued Streets and Trips.

    Hi !
    I have just installed GO 1.13.2 and successfully added my ov2 file to
    sdcard1\Android\data\com.tomtom.gplay.navapp\files\files\personal\pois\
    Works fine
    Keep in mind that there are two place where GO creates catalog structure :
    sdcard0\Android\data\com.tomtom.gplay.navapp\files
    sdcard1\Android\data\com.tomtom.gplay.navapp\files\files\personal\pois\ (external SD flash card)
    you should place ov2 into second one
    sorry for necroposting :-)

    Thank you.

    So I understand that the final solution should be a png image 24x24 with the same name as the ov2 in:
    /com.tomtom.gplay.navapp/files/files/personal/pois/ov2_icons/ldpi/

    Are you able to confirm that this works?

    For me a size of 24x24 pixels is too small, mine are 44 x 44 large.

    Seems there are quite a few solutions.
    Instead of the LDPI-folder, I use a HDPI folder (/com.tomtom.gplay.navapp/files/files/personal/pois/ov2_icons/hdpi/)
    And then i use 64x64 pixel icons, just slightly sharper on the screen.
