    if you have a dat file the quickest way would be to just rename it

    Don't understand, Mapmonkey Garonav and Freedrive use same Destinator application and same settings.

    In freedrive, you only can edit "My favorites" but if you see with mapmonkey "xxx.dat" on the map, you will see the same in Freedrive.

    All .dat you want see must be checked. So : three differents methods

    use mapmonkey for your destinator settings if allready installed

    if no mapmonkey : C_Client (in destinator folder) then menu, destinator's dialog and favourites dialog.

    or get freedrive full screen, click the map, choose favorites in contextual menu, select cancel then categories (a bit complicated but works !)

    This make around helps, if you only want to see the favorites. But I want to navigate to one favorite, e.g.lpg-gas-station. Therefor you had to have this special favorite-list with all the favorite-entries. Now I have all the entries in "my favorites" and cant differ between gas-stations and mcdonald or another favorite place.

    what is the problem ? you can save your favorites in different sorted lists with differents BMP icones: one list for
    macdo.dat and.bmp
    Lpg.dat and .bmp..... and so one.

    I know, but I have tons of .datīs and freedrive only shows "my favorites" and nothing else. thats the problem! MM shows all the .datīs in the favorites list and the .bmp on the map, if the special .dat is checked.

    Freedrive shows the same favorites than MM but you only can edit "my favorites"

    did you try my method (cf post 4) to access all favorites ?

    get freedrive full screen (with the left upper icon : it's only to have a contextual menu and not freedrive menu when you click the map), click the map, choose favorites in contextual menu, select cancel then categories (a bit complicated but works !)

    Ask Cdr ? but i think you only need "my favorites" and history to navigate. and CDR only coded my favorites for an one click access.

    If other favorites are important for you you can have better access without going fullmap :

    Choose an area to define a menu button (by exemple direction or info area)
    then
    edit your skin.ini :

    #TOUCHMENU 0-off 1-on
    touchmenu =0

    and code a new button Bx like this :

    b1=0,0,650,50,menu1

    be carreful, all buttons must be differents : two B1 are not allowed.

    Now when clicking the top of freedrive screen you have freedrive menu
    when clicking the map you have directly contextual menu.
