Hello

Since Tom Tom stopped people downloading the Pocket GPS World POI'S speed camera database I was wondering has anything changed is it still the fact no longer does the new Tom Tom's allow custom poi's as regards to the speed camera database being able to be updated onto the Tom Tom in particular their latest GO Discover as I am thinking of swapping from Garmin to Tom Tom, just fancy a change, as I believe the Tom Tom to be the better sat anv. Unfortunately, no Pocket GPS World POI'S and no GPS World subscription which is a pity as tomtom know what they are doing locking up their Tom Tom's so people cannot upload custom poiís such as camera database.

Can anyone respond

Thank you.

Hi ROBBIE_1,

As a TomTom user, I tried the Garmin Camper 770 and never really got on with it. Especially on the narrow roads that you find in Cornwall. Just my personal findings - others may disagree.

I don't have any recent TomTom PNDs, the latest is my 950 Live, so be aware that I have no experience of current TomTom units.

I believe that current TomTom units allow you to add your own (or custom) POIs to MyDrive, the only downside is that all of your categories are mixed into one single MyDrive group of POIs.

If you have an iPhone then consider the iOS TomTom GO Navigation app and then using the third-party app "POIViewer", you select the POI (from the list of categories) and hit the "Directions" button in POIViewer which starts the TomTom GO app and sends the coordinates for the destination to it.

EDIT (Saturday 15/05/2021 11:50)

TomTom released version 2.6 of the iOS TomTom GO Navigation app yesterday, 14 May 2021 which now has 'My Routes sync with MyDrive'.

This also allows for custom POIs to be synched between your TomTom MyDrive account and MyPlaces on your iPhone. Although as this has just been released, I have found that you can't search for a POI in MyPlaces.

I don't know how many POIs can be sent to MyPlaces, nor do I know how easy/quick it is to remove POIs so that new ones can be installed, i.e. temporarily remove you business POIs and replace them with holiday ones.

Regards,

Sorry to trouble you, but how do I get this? I fired up GO and nothing happened - I innocently thought it might say an update was available and when it didnít I tr ied to find an update thingy but I couldnít. So Iíve got v2.5 and seeing as Iíve paid for it I think I should have the latest.

Hi Dennis,

V2.6 of TomTom GO Navigation is on 'limited release'. I guess I was lucky that my Apple ID was picked as I've updated my iPhone 12 but left my iPhone 6s Plus on 2.5, even though that also has the update available. This is so I can compare the two versions.

Go to your iPhone's App Store and update the list of apps that you have, and you may see the update.

I hope that this helps.

Regards,
Robert.
