    TOMTOM POI Installation.



    CLICK HERE TO REMOVE THESE ADVERTS
    First if you have not already done it you need to download the latest POI files to your computer by downloading the ZIP files and unzipping them on your computer.

    You can find details on the POI Downloads page:

    http://www.wildcamping.co.uk/forums/POI-DOWNLOAD.php


    Since we first started providing the POI files for TOMTOM devices there have been many new models and changes from TOMTOM. Different models now require different software and different methods to install POI files. TOMTOM now has it's own guide that covers all it's models and I have been able to successfully install the POI files and every TOMTOM model that I have tried using these instructions.

    Here is the link.

    How can I install or remove third party POIs?

    You can also try this link that works with older devices:

    No Mac Directions

    I have a Macbook Pro and can't find directions on how to add POI to my TOM TOM START 25 anywhere. I can only find directions for windows. Does anyone have Mac directions? I've installed TomTom MyDrive Connect, but can't find "My Places" which is what the windows version asks you to click into.

    TomTom Start 25 - Cannot locate device area for download

    Well, This is really difficult and time consuming...

    I have the My Drive icon on my desktop, but it does not open 'Manage..' when I right-click it.
    So I've searched in My Progs and not found anything else to do with Tom Tom or My Drive...
    All I can get on the website when it opens is how to download updates which I did recently...
    I've also tried the other way on the other link... no joy.
    Do I have to give up?

    Unfortunately, TOMTOM has made this difficult by having different methods for different models. The best way to get instructions is to do a Google search for "how to install third party poi files on a TOMTOM [add your model number]". Replace [add your model number] with you actual model number.
