Can I get my Recent Destinations from my old TomTom ONE, and get them downloaded on my new TomTom VIA1625M. Thanks. Dryidea

    This Tomtom video shows how to manually transfer favourites and Points of Interest (POIs) to your new device.


    But if like me you have Lots of Favorites.... This is the Method I use...
    Saving Your Favorites from your Tomtom using the free version of Softops POI editor
    Download SoftTop Tomtom POI Editor to a folder on your desktop; open the folder and un-zip the file.
    My Dropbox account...
    File checked virus free....
    Using Avast Virus Check & Malware Bytes Virus Check

    (1)... Connect your Tomtom to your PC USB port and turn it on
    (2)... Run the TomPoiEdrEn.exe file; you should now have the SoftTop POI editor running.
    (3)... Click on the Gold Star Icon (3rd Icon on the tool bar) a New filer Window opens
    (4)... Find the Tomtom drive (Or one of your Backups)
    (5)... Find and click on your installed Map.. (Mine was United_Kingdom_and_Republic_of_Ireland)
    (6)... Click on the 'OK' Box
    (7)... Click on the Softops POI editor... File Tab
    (8)... Click on 'Save As'
    (9)... Rename or accept the offered Name... Save to your Desktop

    Note...I think the development SoftTop POI editor has stopped as you can no longer access Google Earth or Maps from within the program and the author does not reply to Email
