New tomtoms use a new sytem called Mytomtom. There should bean icon at the bottm left of the windows toolbar. With the tomtom connected right click on this icon and choose Add community content (you may have to sign into your tomtom account). then click on add poi, you then add the poi, then the .bmp file that relates to the poi

Sorry Pete but with the new type tomtoms you can't put pois on that way. It has to be via Mytomtom
