When u do this type of download this is always a problem with all GPS brands, there is nothing u can do but put the POI's back in manually. Sorry there is no way around the problem the info has been erased.

How do I use coordinates? I entered map coordinates and it took us to the wrong place.


Some Tomtoms can use latitude and longitude coordinates. They refer, of course, to points on the map.
To use coordinates on some tomtoms you tap the Browse Map option. A general Map of the route is displayed. The screen has three buttons at the bottom
  1. Options
  2. Find
  3. an icon for the point on the map.
  4. Done
Tap the Options button: The Map detail Preferences appears, offering the choice to put a check mark in POI, Favorites, images. At the bottom of screen you have 3 buttons : POI, Advanced, Done.

Tap Advanced: In thsi screen you can put a checl mar on Names, Markers, and Coordinates.
Put a Check mark on Coordinates and press Done, Then Done again until you exit all those options.

Now your tomtom is configured to display coordinates. Be aware that GPS technology was created for military purposes and its civilian uses cannot be expected to offer pin point accuracy. It took an act of the US president to allow its use for civilian localization.

When you plan a route you can use longitude and latitude. Here is the icon you should like for.

Churches are not loaded as POI's. on my ONE XL-S It usuall will not recognize any church a.k.a. place of worship, even if I enter the name. Please help!!


The Points of Interest (POI) database consists of two files:
An OV2 file, which contains the POI's information ov2.jpg A BMP logo of the POI (optional) bmp.jpg
Step 1: Download and unzip the POI file.

1. Download the POI zip file. Save the file on your computer by selecting “save” when prompted. Save the file in a place where you can easily find it again for step 3 of the installation (e.g. on your Desktop or in My Documents)
2. Unzip the POI file by right-clicking the file and selecting Extract All..

  • This will run the Extraction Wizard. Choose Next.

  • Click on Browse... and choose a location on your computer where you want to extract the files. Click Next.

  • Once the files have been extracted, choose Finish to view the files.


Step 2. Connect your TomTom to your PC

Connect your TomTom to your PC using the USB data cable or dock. When prompted if you want to connect to the computer, tap on YES.

Step 3. Copy the POI files from your PC

1. Go to the directory on the local hard drive of your PC where you extracted the files in Step 1.
2. Highlight these files then right-click them and choose Copy.

2. Double-click your TomTom under Devices with Removable Storage tomtom.jpg.

3. Then go to the map directory, for example the folder na.jpg.

4. Righ-click and Paste the POI files into this folder.

5. Right-click your TomTom device and choose Eject before removing it from the USB cable or dock.


You can now use the new POI on your TomTom device via Navigate to... > Point of Interest.
