I finally fixed the problem myself(TomTom support not open on week-ends).I deleted all TomTom software and files,added an SD card for more memory,and then reloaded everything including new maps.Seems to be OK now.
Use the Manage Bookmarks (Firefox) or Organize Favorites (IE). A panel opens listing all your favorite bookmarks. Select 1 or a few (use the CTRL key and keep it pressed to select), then press the Delete button. Confirm the deletion. Move on to other favorites.
To add a bookmark/favorite: Open the page you want and press CTRL D. Give the bookmark a name or leave the default one and press OK. later on, when many favorites are added, you can use the procedure above Manage/Organize to open the panel, Create new folders, move bookmarks around. Close when finished.
Press the favorite that you want to delete. When the map display with the location comes on, press the data box that comes up on the display. The delete key should appear. Press it and verify. The listing should be gone.
The internal memory of the nuvi is full. Some maps will need to be delete before any new maps can be added. Typically, the map in the nuvi is named GMAPPROM.IMG and a map installed to an SD (or SDHC) memory card is named GMAPSUPP.IMG.
1) Remove the SD card from the memory slot
2) Connect the nuvi to the computer via USB cable.
3) Open the nuvi drive.
4) Locate and delete the GMAPPROM.IMG (or GSUPPROM.IMG) file(s). Optionally copy (instead of deleting) them to your hard drive in case there is a problem wit the new map file(s).
5) Empty the Recycle Bin.
6) Retry the map update of the nuvi.
This method will take some time to perform depending on how many map segments you are sending to the nuvi. Transferring the entire map can take over an hour. A quicker way is to send the maps to the SDHC card directly by inserting the card into a card reader. This eleminates the slow Garmin card reader from the equation and transfers are done in a fraction of the time. No maps will be on the nuvi - they will all be on the memory card instead. To update the SD or SDHC card, do this:
1) Repeat steps 1 thru 5 above. This removes the maps files from the nuvi.
2) Disconnect the nuvi from the computer.
3) Connect a card reader to the computer.
4) Insert the SD or SDHC card into the reader.
5) Locate and delete the GMAPPROM.IMG (or GSUPPROM.IMG) file(s).
Optionally copy (instead of deleting) them to your hard drive in case
there is a problem wit the new map file(s).
6) Update the map to the SD or SDHC card.
When either method is employed, only one map file set will result. GMAPPROM.IMG or GMAPSUPP.IMG is the name of this file set. You should ensure / change the name to GMAPPROM.IMG. Any subsequent file set added should be named GMAPSUPP.IMG.
I hope this helps & good luck! Please rate my reply - thanks.
Press "where to", Press "favorites", Press "all favorites", his will list all favorite points stored in the unit. Scroll down til you find the point you want to edit. select it. It will show up on the map, and in the info bubble, it will say in blue "click for more", touch the blue words, and it will take you to a screen where you can select edit or delete.
There is no solution, and the manufacturer is not amenable to any news of this.
It used to be possible to remove the mapsettings.cfg file from the TomTom unit's maps before downloading and installing a new map, then to replace the file; however, TomTom changed the coding on the latest maps so that the software no longer recognises the old cfg file. There is a complex workaround where you change your favorites, one by one, into Points of Interest - but it seems pointless having a Favorites item when you have to do this.
Go into 'Where To', 'Favorites', 'HOME', 'Edit...', 'Delete'. Then from the main map screen you can tap the screen and 'Save' the location as your new home. You can't save a 'Home' location if there's already one called that in memory, so you have to delete the old one first.
