I have 120 My Places Pins in My Google Maps.

I want to import these into my TomTom GO 520

Is there a simple (Batch?) way of importing these into my TomTom?

I have been at it for a couple of days now and I have converted files and imported files and done everything known to mankind but no method is perfect. Surely there must be a really easy way of doing this?

If so can anybody give a heads up as to how this is best achieved?

Cheers and thank you in advance

Easiest if you convert them into a custom POI file (a TomTom *.ov2 file) and use their web system to upload it to your device.
I am trying to recall if Google Maps will export to a *.gpx file. If so, those can be readily converted into TomTom *.ov2 files, but the export from Google Maps needs to be the first step. I'm pretty sure I've exported a full MyGoogleMap full of locations at some point in the past. Having done that, we can steer you through the TomTom side of the process, which is fairly easy. It should really only take 3 steps:

1) Export from Google
2) Convert to *.ov2 file
3) Upload using MyDrive Web cloud service at TomTom
