    text/plaindThis file enables you to navigate to a location in the UK, The Netherlands and Singapore via the entry of a full digit postcode on your device. In the UK and the Netherlands, postcodes are detailed enough to identify a house on their own. In other countries you can enter a postcode to identify a town or area. You will then have to enter a street and house number.+e€*tomtom, dTomTomdGreat_Britain.postaldGreat_BritainPostal.ver

    Well, you KNOW my answer "fiik" and I doubt TT will ever explain them either.
    Please do not just post "thanks" but use the "thanks" button bottom/right or the reputation star "*" bottom/left

    Not a full answer but from PGPSW:-
    "As far as the TomTom units are concerned, it contains information that the HOME application uses.
    If a .tlv file is removed it doesn't stop that function from working"

    and also from there:-
    "From personal experience in the UK, the .tlv files are only used by Home as a sort of "index file". They let Home know where they were downloaded to andfrom and also contain the secription that Home shows you if you click on "More info..."

    But I've seen reports from our transatlantic cousins, where they say that sometimes the .tlv file IS needed for US/Canada maps to work if you have copied them to your PC and then back again"

    The tlv files have been around eons.
    Speedcam info goes in \poi
    fuel prices in \fuel_prices
    gps position in \ephem (short for empheris if you didn't know)
    hotels and other stuff in \poi
    voices in \voices etc

    They can be removed with no problems, but it is one way TomTom keeps abreast of the versions on your units.

    If you need to submit system info to them when they need to fix one of their problems, be wary of doing so if you have "extras" not paid for. (I have a legit 4GB SD Card for this)
