Hi all,

I have a problem and really hope someone out there can help Smile

Basically I'm doing a roadtrip of California next week and I thought I had it all planned out, I purchased the Western USA map and wrote down about 80 points of interest across California that we would like to visit.

After entering in 48 favourites the tomtom says i cannot enter anymore! I have a 512MB SD card installed.

If I buy a larger SD card will I be able to add more favourites or is there a set limit regardless of SD card size?

If there is a set limit does anyone know a workaround i.e converting the favourites into poi's called 'California poi's' ??

Thanks for any help on this one,

Dave

Dave, the Favs are indeed limited to 48, what you should do is create a Custom POI category (call it Daves Places) and enter all your locations as POI locations within the "Daves Places" category - this way you can save hunreds or thousands of individual locations within the same POI file. You can still use the Nav to POI options etc - Mike

You should be able to copy the file "MapSettings.cfg" from your map folder to the PC then open it with POIEdit software (Available from Here for free) - this will allow you to save the 48 you have entered as favourites as ov2 which is a POI file - it might save you a fair bit of finger tapping - Mike
