Route planning

Hi. I have just bought the 520 truck sat nav. I'm using it for multidrop deliveries. Many of my stops will repeat every week, so I will save the locations in my places. Would it be possible to have the route planner use these saved places instead of putting in postcodes etc every time?

    What about taking different approach....
    Instead of planning a routes... Create a Personal .Ov2 POI Category for each Journey
    See.... https://discussions.tomtom.com/en/discussion/comment/1644581/#Comment_1644581

    Instead of using the MyRoute App
    Here... https://www.myrouteapp.com

    You could use the free version of Tyre to Travel
    Download the Free Tyre to Travel Basic.....
    Here... http://www.tyretotravel.com/download-tyre/
    Using the large screen on your PC to view the maps, it easier than to scrolling around the screen of your Tomtom GO to find your MyPlaces (Favorites)

    (1)..... Run Tyre to Travel
    Wait for Tyre to stop being busy

    (2).....Double Click on the Tyre map at the position you would like to create a POI (Favorite) or use the yellow box in Tyre to search for addresses postcodes etc...

    (3)….. To prevent double entry's in MyPlaces on the GO, when you are planning POI's (_Favorites), edit the names of your POI's so they each POI has a unique name that means something to you or modify the Name offered by Tyre so it becomes unique
    (3.1)..... When you have finished compiling your list,
    (3.2)….. From the Tyre "File Tab" select "Convert to a TomTom POI File”

    (3.3)….. From the Tyre "File Tab” Select “Save as" I saved my file to the Desktop
    Note: Saving a file is the only way I have found to give the file the name you want rather than the default name, it’s also handy to have a backup of your .Ov2 file on your PC
    (4.0)..... Use My Drive to load your New Favorites POI Category to your device

    Using MyDrive.....
