In TTN5, I'm able to use the "call number" icon to initiate a call to a POI via bluetooth to my mobile phone. Fantastic.

It doesn't work for all POIs though.

How do I configure my own POIs so that I can call them in this way too?

Try specifying the POI description with a "greater than" symbol

"My POI>0744123456"

The ">" character is not available for POI names in TTN5.

I've set the keyboard to be small/qwerty.

Oh, I didn't think you want to do it on the device. For that just leave a space between the name and phone number and later use a POI tool (like dumpov2/makeov2 or POIConverter) to edit the entry and replace the space with the ">"

to get the standard format of the TTN5 I had to put two plus signs in my asc file before I converted it to get one plus in TTN5 phone window yet on the browse map it shops 3 pluses?

asc file would be:

-1.00000,52.00000,The Red Lion Inn>++44-1625-123456

TTN5 phone window shows

+44-1625-123456
The Red Lion

Yet the map browser when you tap my created POI's shows this

The Red Lion Inn
(+++44-1625-123456)



Am I doing something wrong by adding the two plusses initially in the asc file or is it something else?

Thanks

Having a device with a built in phone is very handy for using the phone call facility on POI'S, but how do I attach a phone number to POI'S that I have created myself within TOM TOM.
Lutz's solution is beyond my ability, have TOM TOM got an easy solution within the application?

No, not yet. Maybe someone will write a tool with the SDK. But for now you need a PC for the final steps.

Having tried to create my own POI's via winOV2 on my PC, following your instructions, I managed to tag on phone numbers to a list of POI's.
I surprised myself, many thanks Lutz.

You need to convert the ov2 file to a text file, with one of the several converters.

Make the changes in the text file and then convert back to a .ov2 file.

Ahhh 8O basically it can be done by transfering the POI to your Pc open poi.ov2 with notepad & after the address put >07816****

So example: 20 london road ba1 (larkhall), bath>07816*****

..... after converting poi.ov2 with something like Dumpov2 or POIConverter.

A pointer - don't make the text to long, unless the first part is easily recognisable.
