    Hi
    Maybe this has been covered but can't find it!
    How do you install the Poi's on a tomtom?
    Is there a limit to how many POIs you can have on?
    Can u have selective POIs loaded like French campsites open all year?
    Is there one for French petrol stations?
    Thanks
    Barry

    I can't fathom how to ad a downloaded list of POIs
    I cant watch the vidie as its asking for an apple plug in and my PC is saying....computer says no ?
    Ive downloaded MyPOIworld but when I copy and paste and try and insert it I just get error messages ??
    I know how to ad one at a time and have added some LPG stations off the tomtom site, most of the files on there seem a bit useless to me, and only one file of 11 campsites ??
    what am I doing wrong ????

    If you want to select things from other POI files or create your own, there are several free POI editors available for download.

    The only limit is your available memory and POI files are quite small.

    I have loads of POI files on mine with spoken warnings, my sat nav talks constantly so nobody else gets a word in edgeways :Rofl1::Rofl1:
