is there a way to do that?

also, i wonder if it's me or is tomtom's poi search completely sucks?

i tried to search for dmv by the city, nothing.

then i searched for fry's electronics and only one showed up.

with garmin's, i remembered it'd give you a listing of all the fry's in the particular county i live in.

    Edited:


    Don't know which unit you have, but you can delete routes, saved as Itineraries, POI's and Favorites, but not individual Recent Destinations.  individual POI's or Favorites .


     


    You can edit POI's, and Favorites by going to Change Preferences, then to Manage POI's, or Manage Favorites.

    To delete a Favourite...


    1. Tap the screen to bring up the Main Menu.
    2. Tap Change preferences to open the Preferences menu.
    3. Tap Manage Favourites.
    4. Tap the Favourite you want to delete.
    5. Tap Delete.

     

    And as far as the POI your are right! As "they" say it ain't a Garmin...

    Thanks for the tip Icole.

     

    I have saved so many favourites because I like easy access to different places, but was worried about cleaning up old entries and deleting them. Your instructions were very helpful, for an old guy like me.

     

    Cheers:smileytongue:

    Why is there no way to edit Favorites? The POI list often does not give a distinctive name for stores with multiple addresses, but I'd like to retain the phone number while adding a more descriptive location. TomTom is a good product, but the interface looks like the programmers don't actualy use it or at least in the way  I need to.

    Go to change preferences, Manage Favourites, then select the one you want to Rename or Delete.

    That if fine if all you want to do is change the name or delete the favorite....but how do you just change the addres?  For example, I entered address for my daughter who moved to Texas...could not find address as new development so I got closset address....now I want to change that to the correct address in my favorites.

    You will have to create a new correct Favorite and delect the wrong one. Since Favorites are limited in number, for addresses you want to save, you can save as POI's. You can create up to 100 POI categories (Goceries, Friends, etc.) but the number of POI's within thosse categories is limited only by the space on your GPS, and POI's take up very little space.

    I am trying to delete a POI, but that function, as well as "edit POI" and "delete POI category" are greyed out and inoperable.

    Presumably you are starting at Manage POIs? From there you should see a screen to give you six options including Edit, Delete, and Add. Which model do you have? I think I have seen where some have the option to show more or fewer of the Preference options.


     


    Try a reset, which depends on your model; either hold the on button till the double drum roll, or push the pin hole reset for the same purpose.


     


    Also, make sure you are updated with maps and software, but do a computer backup of your device first:

    The orignial question is old but I want to tell everyone how to delete addresses and names on the TomTom. All I did was go to: Change Preferences, Manage Favorites. Your list of addresses will appear on the next screen. Just touch any address you wish to delete and it takes you to another screen. A map of the address will appear and on the bottom there are three choices: Back, Delete and Rename. All I did was press "Delete" and it will ask you if you want to delete. Choose Yes.

    I found a bunch of addresses without names and since I didn't remember why I added them I deleted them. It's good to do this to make space for new entries.

    Here's a tip that you might use...........


     


    When you name a favourite, do so like this:


     


    123 Main St--Mom's house, rather than just Mom's house.

    I just found out. Goto settings==>favorites. Click on the one to be removed. A pop-up will appear to rename or delete.

     

    That is all.

    I read all the entries here but was still left confused as I couldn't find a 'Preferences' option.

    The last entry advising to go to Settings, Select Favourites and select one to get the option was FANTASTIC!!

    Have now clearec out all the junk.

    Thank you SO much!:smileyvery-happy:
