    Hi,

    I'd want to copy the places I defined in Google Maps to my Tomtom. I've found a method that works partially (Use Google takeout to export places from maps that generates a GeoJSON file, use https://mygeodata.cloud to convert GeoJSON to a KML or GPX file and then use GPS Babel or RoutePlanner to generate Tomtom OV2 file. My problem is that I'm not being able to get the *names* of the POIs into the OV2 file, the coordinates of the POIs are correct, but the names are some uninformative labels with numbers in all the combinations I tried. The names *are* in the GPX or KML files. Has anyone succeeded?

    In case anyone is interested, I just wrote a tiny Python script to do that.

    I left it at https://github.com/jesuslop/geojson2ov2
