You cant increase the 48 fav limit, but there is another way to handle the problem.

1: Download and install http://www.poiedit.com
2: Find the file Mapsettings.cfg on device
3: Open this file in Poiedit
4: Delete unwanted positions
5: Save as _fav.ov2
6: Place _fav.ov2 in map folder.

Then, navigate to poi, choose _fav and choose location from there..

When doing a map update, just copy over _fav.ov2 to new map folder...

Address delete


I don't think there is an option to delete an address or your recent destinations. If you really want to delete an address, because nobody needs t know, the only option is to set back to factory options. But that will also deleet al your settings and favourites.
If you want to edit (and or delete favourites) there is a menu optie in Change preferences called Manage Favourites

If you want to hide your destinations, you could protect your device with a 4-digit password, but for that you must connect the device to a computer and use TomTom Home.
In the menu preferences choose Set Owner.

An address appeared on my gps, however, it is an address I don't recognize and never entered.\r\nHow would this happen?


If you were browsing the map on the satnav it's possible that you pressed the screen at that point which would give the option of saving it to the favourites folder. If you then pressed SAVE it would save to favourites.

Another possibility is that when you were driving the car you pressed the car icon, which shows your location. This can automatically save the location to favourites if the car was moving or if you were stopped it would ask you if you wanted to save it.

How do i save add to fav place


Favourites are places / addresses that you want to keep on file.



To add an address to your list of Favourites ...



From the Main Menu, tap Add Favourite.

You can then select the location of the Favourite from: an address (that you enter), your Home, or a recent destination, a point of interest, your current position/location, or a position that you tap on the map browser.

I have a Garmin Nuvi 205W and have saved a number of places as favourites. However, when I want to share the location with friends by giving them the map coordinates of these places I cannot find how to...


To view the coordinates of a saved location on your nuvi

  1. Touch Tools (wrench icon)
  2. Touch Settings
  3. Touch System
  4. Turn ON the GPS Simulator
  5. Touch OK
  6. Hold Back to return to the main menu
  7. Touch Where To?
  8. Touch Favorites
  9. Select a favorite location
  10. Touch Show Map
  11. Touch Set Location
  12. Hold Back to return to the main menu
  13. Touch Tools1
  14. Select Where Am I
Here you will see the coordinates for the saved location.
1. For nuvi 200 series units that do not have the Where Am I feature, skip the above steps 13-14. The coordinates can be found by pressing the vehicle icon on the View Map page.

Instructions on Backing up and restoring Favourites can be found at

Can you put in house names as part of address


Not when you search for an address, only the house number. You can give houses names when you save them to Favourites though.

TOMTOM one XL has deleted favourite locations


I think that just means there are no favourite destinations.
Just add a destination and save it as favourite. The button should be enabled again.

Not sure if I down loaded the CD right to TomTom GO 7720--Cannot get Home and Favorite's to light up


Visit www.tomtom.com and download Tomtom Home 2.5 for your system. You will need favourites stored to access favourites tab and likewise with the home tab. If you believe that your installation of the CD went bad uninstall Tomtom Home first before visiting www.tomtom.com .
