When you have finished creating your POI set, it should consist of the following files:
|•||my_poi_set.bmp file (optional but recommended)|
|•||my_poi_set_x2.bmp file (optional)|
|•||my_poi_set.ogg file (optional)|
Retrieving a POI set from a device
If you created your POI set on a device, you will need to retrieve those files:
|1.||Connect your device to TomTom HOME.|
|2.||Select Copy to computer from the main menu.|
|3.||Select your POI set(s) and click Copy items to computer.|
|4.||Open the folder on your computer to which the files have been copied. |
Note: You can configure the folder that the files are copied to by clicking Folder Preferences in the Preferences menu in TomTom HOME.
|5.||Copy your POI set files to a convenient location.|
Note: If you wish to retrieve the files from your device manually, without using TomTom HOME, you will find them in the map folder on your device.
Creating a compressed folder
To make your POI set available to others from your web site using TomTom HOME, you first have to put the file(s) in a compressed folder. Create a .zip file containing your POI set files.
Next step: Decide where to host your POI set.
