Once you are logged into My Drive look at the foot of the screen and use the User Guide and Help links.

The Via Live 130 will accept POIs from third parties.

Some TomToms are like any other external storage device when connected to your computer. They have their own folder structure which can be explored and added to. However, unless you're confident with using a memory stick or a portable hard drive I'm not sure I can be of much help without actually sitting at your computer.

My Drive is an interface which allows you to manage your TomTom but I'm pretty certain it will only download POI's from its approved library, and not all of them will be free of charge. The thing to watch out for with My Drive is it takes bloody ages too update your map files. If you're going to try it, leave it running overnight. I agree with GJH - My Drive's your best starting point.

I've just had the chance to check with my TomTom (had to charge the battery first). You add third party POIs using the Manage Community Content tool.
