How to transfer my place's from a 5250 to a 6250?


I resent bought a new TomTom.
Is there a possibility to transfer the "my places"for my old TomTom to the new one?
The old one is a 5250 and the new one is a 6250.

    Hi @Aai

    If you add your new Go Pro 6250 unit to the same Tomtom account as your GO Pro 5250 then the My Places and any My Routes you have on the old unit ,which you should be able see if you look in your account on MyDrive Webpage, will be synced to your new unit.

    One potential downside if you retain the 5250 is that when you create a route on MyDrive and send the Destination or Stops it will coco to both units even if someone is mid journey. The only solution to this situation is to log out of My Drive on the units until you need to do updates etc. Logging out will not affect Traffic etc..

    Thanks doug for your answer.
    I Tried to add my old tomtom, but it wouldnt connect because my old tomtom has a webfleet function on it.
    I never openend a account to this webfleet….
    Is there no other way ???

    Re... Your NAV3 Device.....
    Get the latest MyDrive Connect Here.....

    Method (1)
    (1)... If you’re running the latest MyDrive Connect… The menu has changed slightly.....
    (2)... With your device turned on and plugged into the PC USB port
    (3)... MyDrive loaded and the MyDrive showing on the PC Taskbar
    (4)... RIGHT CLICK On the Tomtom Icon on the PC Taskbar
    (5)... Click on the link "Manage Community Content" (See below image)
    The below image is 2X normal size


    Note... If you're using Hidden Icons on your PC's Task Bar
    (1)... Click on the up arrow ^ Icon on the task bar to access the Tomtom Icon
    (2)... RIGHT CLICK on the Tomtom Icon
    (3)... Click on the link "Manage Community Content"


    Method (2)
    Direct Web Address link to "Manage Community Content"
    (1)... With you device turned on and plugged into the PC USB port
    (2)... With MyDrive loaded and the MyDrive showing on the PC Taskbar
    (3)... Click on the Link below to open the "Manage Community Content" page

    After using Method (1) or (2) to access the "Manage Community Content" menu
    Scroll to the top to the top of the list to 'Favorites.Ov2' and select 'Copy to computer'....
    Scroll down the list to copy any other 3rd party POI categories and select 'Copy to computer'....


    When you have your Favorite.Ov2 file saved to your PC

    Run the MyDrive Web Route planner

    Click on image to enlarge
    (1)... Import your Favorite.Ov2 file that you saved to your PC...
    (2)... Follow the on-screen instructions on the MDW Route planer to import the Favorite POI Category
    (3)... When importing the Favorite POI Category you can rename the file... I import my file as "_Favorites (Note "_Favorites.ov2" The Underscore before the "_F" is not displayed on the Tomtom screen, but it forces the POI category to the top of the list

    See Tomtom Video....

    If required you can now delete the MyPlaces that aren't required (Saves the MyPlaces blue star screen clutter) and use your New Favorites POI Category instead

    Hai YamFazMan,

    I tried both methode, but they didn't work.
    With the first methode:
    I installed the latest mydrive connect…Followed all the instructions, but when i right click on the icon....."Manage Community Content"....was'nt there…

    With second methode:

    I pressed the link and got a 404 error

    Thnks for all youre time, I think there nothing must to it then to transfer all the adresses from my places manually….
