    All of my POIs have both an .ovs and a .tlv extension. Do I need both files or can I delete one or the other?

    Will the .bmp file work with both .ov2 and .tlv?

    You mean ov2, not ovs, I think.

    No, you can't delete that file. That's the one that holds the data. If you have a .tlv file, you can dump that as it's just a text file of information about the specific ov2 file it relates to.

    You may also have an associated .bmp file. Don't delete that either. Both the ,bmp file and ov2 file go in the specific map folder.

    .tlv file seems to be a pointer file, which HOME using it to link to any specific folder.
    .ov2 is the correct file for POI using on Tomtom device, those .ov2 files must be placed inside the map folder.

    Not needed for custom ov2 files.
