I wonder if you can make any suggestions as to what the problem is?

I have a POI file of 149 entries which is in my GO500 (map 6.75, app version 7.xx). The problem is that there are only 24 entries showing when I go to the "Navigate to POI" & select the POI. I can use the Find function & type in the first few characters of the name and find the location that way but why doesn't all 149 entries show in the POI category display on the screen? I can browse the map and see that they are all there but only 24 are listed which means I have to type a few characters in to make a selection if it isn't one of the 24 shown in the list. Maybe a small issue but a bit irritating. Surely all 149 should be listed?

Can anyone confirm how things should be or is this correct?

It isn't a fault, that's how it is now. In previous versions the nearest 100 could be seen.

Presumably TT doing a cutting down exercise.

Agree, it's annoying, but TomTom say that is how it is meant to be.

As a "get-round" you can navigate to 'POI near destination' or 'POI in City'
which will then show you the nearest 24 to those places.

'POI along route' still only shows you the nearest 24 to where you are now, not necessarily the nearest ones to the chosen route (as indicated by the little green and yellow arrows).

Thanks for the reply chaps,

So, it seems that TT changed things in ver 7.xx. At least I now know I'm not going mad - I distinctly remembered a shed load more POI's showing before I "upgraded".

In v6, you still didn't see all of them in a list, but you saw the nearest 100, I think.
