The only time you've wasted has been your own when you contacted TomTom for help. They have absolutely no idea about it, they don't support it, they don't want you using anything except their own inferior stuff, so they have no idea how to deal with PGPSW and your own stuff. They have no interest in learning how to support somebody else's stuff so they won't train their staff to do it.

It goes back to their decision to stop allowing third party access to their more recent satnavs, because they were unable to come up with a solution to people pirating their stuff. In theory it makes business sense for them, but for savvy users like us, (and we do NOT like pirates either) it's a disaster area.

Quite. It became apparent pretty quickly that they didn't really know what it was all about (incl. the relevance of POIs which weren't theirs).

Now what I need to figure out is where to locate the Favourites file on my original device. I'm sure there'll be a thread about it somewhere on here.

Thanks again to everybody for the input. Thumbs Up

Iím assuming you mean your Favourites on the previous TomTom which you have replaced with your new VIA135.

On your old device, Manage POIs. create new Category, call it _Favourites (Note the first character of the name is the underscore, which gives it the first alphabetical position). Add POI, select your first favourite and add it to the new POI Category. Do it for them all. Copy this POI category from old device to new device in the same way you used for your POIs and Pgpsw cameras.
