I never bother using TT Home to transfer PoI sets, I just drag and drop using Windows Explorer - much simpler and quicker.

Maybe we could have a meet to learn about this type of thing from some of our obviously "advanced" TomTomers
I never seem to get the files to go anywhere and end up deleting them, but then I am a dinosaur

Hi Keith, What I usually do to make it easy is...right click on your desktop/new/folder. Name this POI and put your POI files in this. open windows explorer (with your tomtom connected and switched on) Got to computer/tomtom/POI in explorer open the POI folder. Shrink your screen to half size. Then open the POI folder you created on your desktop (shrink window to half size) You can now see both folders the contents of your desktop folder and the contents of the tomtom POI folder. Simply drag all the contents of your desktop folder into the Tomtom POI folder. Shut your TomTom down and restart and all your POI's will be there. Hope I've explained this OK and it helps.
