I have found a France web site with lots of information about Motorhome free Aires and downloads indicate that they can be marked on a Tomtom
here is the address. I-CAMPINGCAR.FR/accueilcartes.htm
can i download all the POI,S in one hit and install onto my tomtom so as I drive along to Portugal ( after the covid season ) So I can see the Aires as i pass By

thanking you all
regards Richard

Select the picture below "COORDONNEES GPS".
At Choisissez, select the TomTom logo in the lower right of the box.
Download the offered file. It will come to you as tomtom.zip.
Since your GO 60 is a 'Nav4 generation' device, the only file inside the zip that you can use is Aires Camping Cars.ov2. Extract that from the tomtom.zip file, and have it at the ready.

Now ... I don't have a GO 60 handy. My similar vintage devices are all WiFi connected, and use a different method for transfer of POI files.
So this next bit is going to be from memory.

Does the GO 60 have WiFi capability? If not, I believe you'll need to have MyDrive Connect loaded on your PC before we can move the *.ov2 file.
dhn and Arno, feel free to back me up here (or shoot it down!) For the non-WiFi versions, I recall that you right click the systray icon for MyDrive Connect to 'Add Community Content'. Or am I misremembering this for Nav4?

I believe Add Community Content was only available for Nav 3 devices.

The reason I asked is because the GO 60 manual doesn't discuss custom POI.
One assumes, then, that using MyDrive Web with a USB cable would be the answer, but I see no option for Cloud services login in the GO 60 setup manual.

I thought that Community Services were available in non WiFi NAV4 but I only have 2 working WiFi devices.

Were you able to use it using the MyDrive Connect app? All of us here are on WiFi units it seems, so we'll be curious to know how it went for you in some detail.

You could try to run a Demo at home.
Plan a route past an area with camping spots.
Click Settings >> Current Route >> (go to the end) Play Route Preview.
