Saving POI's on GO Premium X

I have a GO Premium X and I have imported a work poi group. I would like to know how to add locations to this poi category. All I can seem to add is into the my places category and not in to the my places-> work -> new location.

Thanks
Roy

    Hi
    @RDickens
    You can't edit 3rd party POI Categories directly on the device....
    You have to use a 3rd party POI editor
