You basically place it in your map folder on your TomTom device. In your case, the folder would be called USA_and_Canada. Copy it there.Hi Digital flex,
I tried to go through all the thread in this series. I recently bought TOMTOM ONE XL-S. Can you guide me where should I copy the Unzipped stuff for POI of timmys.
When you connect your unit to your PC/Mac the unit itself should be displayed as a removable drive on your computer.Hi again,
thanks for your prompt reply, My problem is that I could not find any folder with name USA_and_Canada or even any folder with name of map or anything with the files of OV2 extension.
please help me in this regard...
Thanks again .....
Since it really is a ZIP file, just change the .php to .zip and you should be able to open it.I am new to this and having some trouble. When I try to save the .Zip file to my Mac, it saves it as a .PHP file. I can not open it? Any suggestions as to how to save the POI's correctly? Thanks.
If I'm understanding your post correctly, you can only make changes to custom poi's, not default ones in terms of name changes, etc. So, it may be a reason custom ones 'rise to the top'.I've copied over the .ov2 and the .bmp but I'm having two problems when I browse them through the tomtom 130s. The first is that I've added a bunch of custom pois and they are not interspersed in alphabetical order with the default ones. First it lists the new ones I added in alpha and then it lists the default ones in alpha. How do I get them interspersed. They all start with a capital letter so it shouldn't be a case thing.
Second, some of the custom pois show up twice. First, with a red square indicating a missing .bmp and without any actual poi's in it and then further down in the list, with the correct icon and with the poi's in it.
I have exactly this issue. I know they are named the same so that is not itSecond, some of the custom pois show up twice. First, with a red square indicating a missing .bmp and without any actual poi's in it and then further down in the list, with the correct icon and with the poi's in it.
Are you using a PC or MAC as I have seen this behaviour before from MAC based computers but not Windows based machines, I just cannot find the exact post that mentioned what causes this file duplication, something about the way the MAC works IIRC - MikeI've used your instructions to successfully install several third-party POI files, but now I have a question. Each installation creates the appropriate file -- say "Wal-Mart" -- but it also creates another file, like ".Wal-Mart". (Note the . at the beginning.)
