HOME 2 VIA 52
Hi All,
My old Home 2 finally decided it wouldn't work for me anymore so I've decided to purchase a VIA 52. I haven't got it yet but I was wondering if I could use the old map settings file on the new device to save me from retyping all my destinations.

Thanks

Afraid not. The user has no access to the file system on the newer devices.

If the old one is still alive, can you save them, one by one, as individual POIs in an .ov2 folder.

Thanks, I thought perhaps not. So the VIA 52 uses a different format of file to that in the older version.

You can import .ov2 files by logging into MyDrive (not MyDriveConnect) and then syncing with your device by logging into MyDrive on the device. But associated .bmps you might have had on the old device will not import.
