    I have downloaded a TT Poi file named. TomTom.ov2

    All the other TT POIs I've downloaded come with two files with extensions .exe and .bmp

    How do you extract the two files from the .ov2 file

    Hi jim the ov2 file goes straight into tomtom, the bmp file you download separately or make your own, its just the icon, any pic. will do, must be 60x60 pixels and with the same name.

    Whatever you do, Jim, make a backup of your TT SD card first - then if something does go wrong you can reload from before the change.
