    I had a TomTom One V1 with the SD card and unfortunately had it stolen recently. In my job as an agency driver it was invaluable because for every client I could create a separate POI category , then when I arrived at the customers destination I could create the POI within that category. Unfortunately TomTom One v3 and above do not allow that and can only create favourites and thats limited to 142 or so.

    My question is this do any of the newer TomToms have the facility to create my own POI categories and if so could I use restore from TomTom home to put all the 500 POI's I have onto the new device

    Cheers

    I do believe all the newer models do have the capacity to create your own categories and, yes, simply copy the customer.ov2 file from your backed up map to the specific map folder on the new unit.
