    Extract the attached zip file to somewhere on your computer. Contains the ov2 file and associated bmp file for KFC in USA & Canada.

    If your model uses Home 2, then just use Explorer to copy the ov2 & bmp file to the map folder.

    If it uses MyTomTom, use the Add Community Content link in the desktop's icon.

    Make sure you set the Manage pois on your device to show KFC on the map.

    On my GO 930

    Navigate to ... >
    Point of interest >
    POI near you >
    Search POI >
    type kfc
    click OK

    and 37 show up.
    Unfortunately, typical, the nearest at 800 m doesn't show, leaving the 4.7 km as the closest.
