    1. Pick your smartphone from the pocket
    2. Open the camera app
    3. Focus & take the shot...

    You may mark a location if that’s what you want...

    I'm sorry, I guess I should have been more specific when I wrote my question. So let me try again:

    What is the procedure for capturing an image directly from the screen of a Rider 550, then transferring that captured image from the Rider to a computer so that it can be edited or saved?

    An example of the type of screen capture that I want to get can be seen on any of @YamFazMan 's or @Lochfrass 's posts, for example, here:


    In the above example, it is obvious that the image has been directly captured from the display of the device - it's not a photograph taken of the screen of the device.

    Hi @ST1300_PanEuropean
    I use mostly a screenshot from the Go Mobile App.
    The Layout is mostly identic with the Nav 4 or Wifi devices.
    Often a pic can say more than 1000 words.


    On the second pic you can see the stausbar from the Smartphone on the top.

    Thanks very much for the quick reply.

    So you are not actually capturing the screen display from a TomTom navigation device (e.g. a Rider 550), you are capturing the screen display from your smartphone when it is running a TomTom app, is that correct?

    Do you know if it is possible to directly capture and export a screen image from a TomTom navigation device?

    Yes thats correct.
    Therefore I use the smartphone and an app to fake my location. So I can recreate many situations.... Some other Pic like the Poi icons, i have from the Manual

    And No it's not possible to make a screenshot from a device.
