The Itinerary option looks really good.

How do you select/add waypoints for your itinerary - can these be POI?

I would like to use Autoroute to plan a route and add 'pushpins' save this data and then convert to POI and add to the TomTom go and use this data to set up my Itinerary - It this possible?

Thank for your advice

Thanks for your reply.

I have a pre-defined route for which I want to use the TomTom Go to help navigate.

Currently I use POI's set up via Autoroute and set a route point 1 to point 2 and when I arrive at point 2 I set it to point 3 - very longwinded when you have 30 points to ensure the Tomtom takes the route I require!!

As I now have these POIís in the Tomtom I am pleased I can use them to define my Itinerary and save it for further use.

Great addition to the Tomtom Go and hope I can soon download the V5 update!!

Does the itinerary option work out the best route to take or do you have to put the waypoints in in order of visit?

As I understand it, the route is not optimised and you have to input the waypoint order yourself.

Shame that wasnt an option. How cool would that be to give our drivers a list of delivery site and the Go work out the quickest route to cover them all... ah well version 6 maybe...

No it's a manual configurable list allowing you to move up and down each item.

I think the processor would need to be a hell of a lot more powerful before it could start calculating such 'what if' type scenarios
