I am trying to set a Guest House in South Africa as a favorite so we can locate it on our holiday. The name of the Guest House does not show up but they give GPS Lat and Long. I have tried to set it as a destination and I keep getting the message "no usable location near curser". I am trying to prepare a route from Cape Town to the GPS destination. What am I doing wrong.

When you press Where To you can enter an address. If you want to save the address instead of pressing Go press Save. The address will be saved in favourites. You'll be asked to give it a name and you type in the name you want. The house number and street is usually saved with the name.
You can also save a location when you arrive there by pressing the car icon on the screen. When you press it it asks do you want to save the location. Press yes and it'll ask for a name for it. This way may save a street name as the address but not the whole address. If the location is not on a named road it'll save a Latitude and Longitude of the point. You can select the place in favourites and again instead of pressing GO press EDIT. Change the name to something you will recognise again.
So the answer is you can have the name but not the whole address.
If you are parked there by pressing the where am i button you will get teh coordinates for the location, but you can simply select teh position on the mapping while you are there and you will have the option to save it on the map screen so it can be saved as a favourite which you can edit the name of and find for future journeys
How can I create a Favorite?
From the Main Menu, tap Add favorite.
You can then select the location of the Favorite from the list below.
Give your Favorite a name that is easy to remember. Your ONE will always suggest
a name, usually the address of the Favorite. To enter the name, just start typing.
You don’t have to delete the suggested name.
You can do this. What you need to do is choose Navigate then POI. In here there is a Search button that will allow you to search the address. Just as a warning: It rarely works. If this is a place you go to often, you can add it as a Favorite. Just go into Add Favorites and scroll until you see My Location. Then set it and name it. You will have it from then on.
not all locations are in TomTom maps this is not uncommon if you live in a new construction area that is newer than about 3 yrs old you can make a favorite location by turning on TomTom and navigating through the menu and mark the location the best way to do this would be to go into the street just infront of your driveway or parking area so you can use this favorite for routing info
Scroll down until you find "HOME", not the green bar on the top but scroll thru the favorites until you find "HOME" and select it.
Click on "EDIT", then on "DELETE".
Go outside your house, get a good satellite signal and click on "VIEW MAP".
You should zoom in or out according to your preference and click on the vehicle icon, as your are standing outside your house and...that's it! Just click on "YES" and enter the name as Home when it asks you "DO YOU WANT TO SAVE THIS LOCATION AS A FAVORITE?" You can even change the icon and enter other info...good luck!
