Garmin Waypoint transfer to TomTom

I have been able to transfer all of my Garmin waypoints to my Rider 450 by converting the gpx file to .ov2. The issue that I have is that the unique name given to the waypoint is lost in the transfer (eg campsite) and replaced by a street address or just a date in some cases. Is there any way to keep the original name given?

    I assume this is a .Ov2 POI Category ???
    Have you tried loading the .Ov2 POI Category onto one of the many online POI editing tools....
    Then edit the individual POIs locations to the correct name
    Save the corrected files and reinstall....

    You can use the JaVaWa RTWtool to convert GPX Waypoints to OV2 POI’s.

    Thanks again for your help YamFazMan and RoadRider! I initially used GPS Babel to convert the waypoints from gpx to ov2. When I tried the same process with JaVaWa RTWtool the names all came across without any issue!
