    Is it possible to MERGE Favourite from many mapsettings.cfg files??

    In the past, while using different maps, I kept recording Favourites, thinking that they were map independent and that somehow that info would be retained through map upgrades.

    As a result, I now have a few mapsettings.cfg files, that I would like to MERGE in one, which then, per the instructions posted elsewhere in this forum, I shall preserve and update.

    Is that possible please? And if yes, how?

    Many thanks,

    GYFTOS

    I'm not aware of any tool doing this.

    As far as I know, this is not possible at this time.

    No tool for merging Favorites known. So the only way I see - convert all Favorites to POI and then merge them. After this - you can convert POI back to favorites

    I keep mine, and add to/edit them, in a POI I call "Favourites"; saves any hassle when the format of "mapsettins.cfg" is changed by TT.

    Could you please tell us how do you convert / import quickly POI's favourites to TomTom favorites (.cfg) format??

    I did already but it seems those tools are not able to work with the mapsettings.cfg file only with .ov2 (POI's). Am I wrong?

    No you're right, but some are helpfull for converting.
    I discovered the same problems, but as already written there if I want my favourites back, I do it manual
