    Hey Guys,

    Just wondering on the 1415M can it sort by distance as opposed to alphabetically?

    First off, welcome to TomTomForums.

    If you are talking 'Favourites' and POI categories it is alphabetical.
    In a custom POI (,ov2) it is by distance from current location.
    The same should be with a search by ~ 'Gas Station'.

    I preface items that I want in order by 01, 02, 03, etc. for priority start with an under score.

    Can you give a typical example of what you are looking for?

    Thank you for the quick response!
    Ok so I do territory sales and have a little over 600 clients and see about 100 every month and the other 500 I'll either just call or see them when I'm in there area. But i can't remember 600 address or different areas. So I used to have an older Garmin GPS the nuvi 40 and on it, I could see which one of my customers were closest, by looking in the address book or if i would open the map I would see the pins and if I touched any of the pins which were only for my address book it would tell me which customer it was

    I know this is kind of a weird discription but Is there anyway of doing that with a tomtom?

    That should be relatively easy.
    You can break it down and refine it later but, for starters, lets' say you divide your territory into 4 areas (1 a week).
    Number them or give them more meaningful names like Kitchener, Barrie, Oshawa, etc., and make them custom ov2 categories and preface all with an underscore..
    In those categories you put the names of the 25 'must see that month' customers alphabetically and preface them with an underscore. then add the other 125 'good to drop in' customers.
    The underscored ones will come first In alphabetical order and then the rest.
    If you now go
    Drive to ...
    Point of Interest
    Poi near Home
    --> more ...
    the POI category: screen opens, starting with your 4 areas.
    Within a POI category entries are sorted by distance from current location.

    If you do not remember those 5 a day must see customers, make new POI categories, again for those 4 areas. Double underscore them as __11, __12, __13, __14, __15, __21, __22, etc. and put the names of the 5 customers of the day into them. They will still be sorted by distance from current location but since there are only 5 to look at you will know which one to choose for the day.
