    Hi

    As Doug says to Convert a Marked location to a MyPlace

    Further to Doug's post... Maybe useful....
    Note the images are from a Tomtom NAV4/5 Car Satnav

    Tapping the Direction of travel pointer (Above the + & - signs)

    Toggles the map view between the Driving & Planning views
    If you are using the North-up overview planning Map
    The direction of travel pointer... is flatter more squat

    If you want to save your present location to 'MyPlaces'....

    (1)... Switch to the North-up overview planning Map
    Long Tap on the Chevron Location cursor (Tap and hold for + 1 second) a Quick menu opens... Tap the 3Dot Icon Tap 'Add to MyPlaces'

    (2)... Switch to the North-up overview planning Map
    Long Tap anywhere on the screen (Tap and hold for + 1 second) a Quick menu opens... Tap the 3Dot Icon Tap 'Add to MyPlaces'

    Note... Long and short taps give different menu option

    thanks, appears to be easy - press the market location in myplaces which opens the map and 3 dots bring menu add to my places which gives option to rename it. A bit confusing because this location is already in my places just with marked name, so you technically adding to my places second time.

    A 'Marked location' is not in the list of MyPlaces... Its in a Sub menu called 'Marked locations' at the bottom of the Myplaces list

    Sorry but you are incorrect... My Rider 550's, MyPlaces list

    The Sub Menu called 'Recent destinations' is at the top of the Myplaces list

    The Sub menu called 'Marked locations' is at the bottom of the Myplaces list

    Tap on the 'Marked locations' Sub menu --> A new screen opens and displays the list of 'Marked locations'....
    I Marked a random location at 11:36 today

    Tap on 'Today 11:36 am' --> The Planning Map opens with a Quick Menu displayed... Tap on 'Add to MyPlaces' --> Edit or accept the Name offered --> Tap 'Add'
