Got my new 6250 yesterday and it has some pre installed poi's in my places. Has anyone any idea how I can get rid of them please?

Hi Gershie,

Welcome to the Community!

The GO Professional indeed comes with some pre-installed POIs for truck and bus drivers. You can find more information about them here.

You can choose which ones show on the map while you're driving at Settings - Appearance - Show POIs on map.

Cheers, Mikko

    Hi
    There should not be any MyPlaces or POIs in the MyPlaces Menu
    Was it sold to you as new or pre-owned

    See Tomtom video to give you an Idea how to use the MyDrive (Web) Route planner

    Hi YamFazMan.. Unfortunately there are and they are totally irrelevant. The device is brand new and the entries include DKV Gas stations, Park your bus, Veda Autohof and Truckers Life Foundation. They cannot be deleted using the Edit List function and nothing appears in the User Manual. I just thought I would enquire on the Forum in case someone else had encountered this. I will get in touch with Support if no one has had the problem, I do not want a device with 'Product Placement' on it.

    Thanks for responding

    Thanks Mikkok but I have decided to return the device as Support say the entries cannot be removed. I particularly do not need Bus entries in My Places. I notice that some of these POIs appear on the box the device came in, it appears to me as just advertising. A pity but I'm not paying for something I don't want or like.

    I`d just like to say I find these Pre-Installed POI files totally useless too as I`m in the UK and as a Trucker none of them are relevant to me at all, and also, its a nuisance having to scroll past them just to get my own POI files which are the useful ones. Being able to completely delete the Pre-Installed POI files would be good for some of us who would like the choice... Cheers

    Hi
    May be worth a try.....
    If you have a backup of your personal POI files stored on your PC

    Try renaming your POI files with an underscore " _" as a Prefix, for example, _Favorites (Note _Favorites.ov2)... The Underscore before the "_F" is not displayed on the Tomtom screen but it forces the POI Category/s to the top of the list
    Try renaming a POI Category, see if it is ranked above the Preinstalled POIs

    I agree to. Just got the 6250 and the pre-installed poi in the uk for a lorry driver are as much use as a chocolate teapot.
    Not sure what TOMTOM was thinking??
    Why no UK FUEL? Why no Key Fuels? You know TOMTOM the UK fuel site cards
    Why no TRUCK STOPS just bus parking?
    Why can these useless poi's not be deleted?

    Hi Jullian,

    Welcome to the Community!

    You can find list of the preinstalled truck POIs and their sources here.

    I'll log your feedback to be reported to the product team.

    Cheers, Mikko

    Cheers please also pass on the stupid little squares and triangles etc for added poi instead of icons like those on previous models.
    You really should be able to see clearly what poi you are looking at and not have to think...."Now then was the little blue square a truck stop or a fuel station or was that the circle"
    Who ever came up with that idea really does need a good moaning at.

    Regards
