Can anyone tell me if, after subscribing to GPS World if I can actually load the POI database onto the Start 25 model?

If your device is newer than the via135 then unlikely. TT have restricted the camera database to its own on recent devices.

Thanks. I was just going by the fact there's an install guide on the GPS site for this model which seems odd. It doesn't work hence my post!

TT have started re-issuing old device numbers to further confuse the issue.

The Start 25 was part of the same release as the Via135 and it should work.

Which method did you use, the TomTom OV2 or the TomTom (My TomTom Zip)? I always use the OV2 file and extract the files before installing them using MyDrive Connect. The instructions are here.

The zip file instructions are here but I've never tried that method.

No need to do that! You said

which is correct. You can't be expected to know when every TT model was released! Very Happy I only know because I recommended the Start 25 to my sister whereas I bought a Via 135 because I wanted bluetooth so I could use it as a hands-free for calls and texts. I think that's the only difference between them.

Thanks for replies. I followed that to the letter but when I right click on "My Drive Connect" I don't get the option "Manage Community Content" or "Add community content" only "TomTom My Drive Connect" "Pin to Taskbar" or "close window" so that's as far as I can get. Any ideas? PS I have downloaded latest updates for my sat nav too

Others have sometimes reported the same problem but, as long as the device is connected to the pc and switched on, I have never experienced it.

I'm sorry but I can't offer any other solution.

I entered* Start 25 *into the search field , top right of this page, and it returned several pages, one of which was this ..

http://www.pocketgpsworld.com/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=97055&start=0&postdays=0&postorder=asc&highlight=

Not sure if it gives you the answers you need, but, if not, perhaps another reply shall?.

Reading various replies, loading the Speed Cams is definitely possible, but sadly not as straight forward as it should be.
