Calling all TomTom owners!!

I recently picked up a Tom Tom Rider, and am a total noob to GPS. I'm wondering if anyone knows how to create custom routes, or has any other good info/links about using this lil machine to its max potential.

Thanks in advance!

Use these to convert a google route to an .itn and then follow the instructions. You don't need to move the first and last points though. Check your route on the tomtom to be sure that the route is in the same form that you made on google. Modify as needed.

POI Factory has TomTom info.

They are focused more on Garmins, but the site has a wealth of knowledge.
