    I have now managed to load all my custom POIs onto my new Go 510 thanks mainly to the great help I have received n this forum.

    So now I can go to "My Places" and call up all my custom POIs and use them as destinations..

    Can I edit Custom POIs stored in folders under "My Places" and can I add POIs to a particulate custom folder shown under "My Places" or must I do all the editing on the PC and reload my POIs?

    If I reload a POI file that already exists on the 510 will the original file be overwritten or must i first delete it?

    Thanks

    You can't edit on the device. I think that redoing on the pc and then syncing with the device overwrites but wait for feedback from canderson and/or Arno. They know better than I.

    You can take a POI and make it one of My Places and rename it but it remains as original downloaded in the ov2.

    Any changes must be made on the computer with TYRE or what have you.
