Does anyone know the location of the favourites file(s) in TomTom 6? I want to upgrade to TomTom 7 and wish to copy them across.

You could try to copy the MapSettings.cfg. When I look at that file with notepad I see my favorites. But I think this file keeps more settings, like Home address and other settings.

quite correct.. just find the mapsettings.cfg in the relevant map and copy it to your new map directory.. all your favourites etc will transfer

Slightly off topic but a lot of people have complained of losing favourites when map updating, you don't get fair warning from tt either. I found this out by doing a search where others have had the same problem. There were weird and wacky ways of fixing prob but I had not done a back up for a few days so was able to retrieve favourite from a file before the map update.

Graycon is on the money,

I did the same and lost the lot, so before doing a map update copy the .cfg file.
