    I just got a VIA 1535 today and updated the Maps and Navcore. My guess is when the next map update comes out the favorites will get gone just like my Go 720. On the Go it is easy to restore the MapSettings.cfg file. I see how to backup the favorites but not how to restore them on the Via.

    When you connect to MyTomTom's desktop icon, there should be a new menu option of 'Add Community Content'. You can copy Favourites to the computer that way and, when the next map update comes, use the same menu option to copy to the unit.

    .....Although to be honest, I don't think you will lose your Favourites any more on the new models.

    They pretty much sorted it out so you don't lose them by the end of Navcore 9 versions, and I think it's definitely sorted in Navcore 10
