Help please - Is there a way of deleting single destinations from the list of Recent Destinations on a TomTom One?  The only option visible seems to be to delete ALL, and I don't want to do that. But the Recent Destinations list is now quite long and there are some that I'll never use again.  Thanks

    Thanks for the swift response.  Shame I can't delete one at a time, though.  Is there a TomTom sat-nav that does have that facility, please?

    Why tom tom din't create an option of deleting destinations one by one .It wasn't a difficult job.There are some which are worthy to  keep and other to delete.It's a simple IT phenomenon------Not a rocket science ?Please just create it and send it through TomTom Update.

    Thanks ....

    If its like the START2, save the ones you want to keep as Favourites where you can delete them individually under Managing Favourites. Then delete the recent destinations which has to be all of them. Every time you wish to keep a destination repeat the above instructions and save it in Favourites.

    Regards,

    You sure you want to delete them?

     

    If so, the easiest way is through preferences-->Restore to factory defaults. It'll remove favourites, recent destinations AND custom settings. It takes the unit back to out of the box............

    Every time I update my tomtom, the update erases all my recent destinations.  As a programmer I can tell you that it is not that dificult to save the recent destinations in a file prior to the update, and restoring the file after the update.  

    Please provide us that feature.  I'm tired of having to find my addressbook everytime I uddate tomtom. 

     

    Regards,

    After reading the discussion site, do I understand that it is impossible to delete individual destinations?  If so Man can travel to the moon but ....  The software couldn't have been tested by 'ordinary' users.  Help please

    You need to keep the destinations you want by saving them as Favourites. The remaining destinations you do not want delete them in a block

    Why can't we delete recent destinations individually, it was in my Mio gps from years ago.

    It's ridiculous, that we have to delete all recent destinations

     

    It's so annoying in fact I'm just using my android phone instead.

     

    TomTom techs you need to sort this out, this is basic usability that your rivals offered years ago!

    Save the destinations as Favourites and then delete the destination you do not need.

    Hi gwb007,


     


    Welcome to the forum!


     


    There is no way of editing your recent destinations. You only can delete them all.


    (There is a way for nav2 devices, but then you have to be quite experienced in Linux)


     


    Greetings


    Andreas

    Then obviously it is something that TomTom needs to update in their software.  Because it is EXTREMELY annoying.

    This is extreme annoying I can not delete a single or multiple recent destination favorite or address.

     

    I added a new address then clicked "Add Favorite", added a name but I made a mistake

    on spelling and incomplete after I finished.   A favorite was added above the new address

    in the recent destination with wrong spelling and incomplete information which the name

    is not easy to identify what that is.

     

    Next I went to "mamage favorite" and found the favorite, this time I corrected the spelling

    and finished the name description.  The name got update.  BUT the name of favorite in recent

    destination did not get update.  I could not find anyway to delete the favorite from the recent

    destination.  I DO NOT WANT TO DELETE ALL RECENT DESTINATION AND START ALL

    OVER.

     

    Another issue in "Manager Favorites" software programming is that lack of favorite attributes

    to provide the full address viewing and editing.  In my favorites I usd both name and brief address

    to provide meanning ID, but it is not always work due to limitation of number of words allowed.

     

    Please advise.

    You are correct that deleting recent destinations is an all or nothing proposition. Dumb design.


     


    You could do this:


     


    1. Make a new custom poi category. Call it 'Recent Destinations'


    2. Add points to the category using the recent destinations, one by one.


    3. Once done:


    3a) Delete all the recent destinations


    3b) Delete the improperly named one (if you added it in the first place)


    4. Manage pois-->Show on Map-->Select your new custom category.

    It is still required works. I like to place all recent desination in that folder as an address book.

    Worst case I have to redo about 50 addresses, and absolutely MAKE NO MISTAKE IN TYPING

    for each address entry.  Currently I have about 7 typo favoitors and few addresses were type in by

    mistake resist in the recent desination folder.

     

    Your IT should improve software on the database entry and editing functions, make it use it friendly.

    This is the worst forum implementation I have ever seen...

    I check the link. Typre-Basic is free, Other two require purchase. 

     

    What we like TomTom is to look in to improve the functionality of handling

    the file management for the "recent designation" so that the address(s)

    and favorite (s) can be selected, edited or deleted without delete all.

     

     

    Thanks

    You can edit/delete favourites one by one.


     


    Unfortunately, the same can't be said for the recent destinations.
