Question about Tomtom GPS

1 Answer

I do not know how to load latitude and londitude into my tomtom. I am going to Bad Liebenzell in Germany (with caravan) The Latitude is 48.87329 (I do not undestand that because lat/long is usually quoted in degrees, minutes and seconds) Longditude is 8.6923 Then I am going from there to Kossen in Austria. Longditude 12 degrees 24 minutes 56 seconds Latititude 47 degrees 39minutes 13 seconds There is an option on tomtom for North and South and I do not know how to pick the correct direction either. When I try to enter 47degrees 39minutes and 13seconds it always comes up with a letter N first. I try entering 47degrees and 13 minutes successfully but I cannot enter the double apostorophe for the seconds. Is correct to say that londitude will always be East or West and latitude will always be North or South?

Latitude is N or S, longitude is E or W, correct.

When entering degrees, minutes and seconds, you dont have to type the double apostrophe at the end off seconds, the device will understand...

ALT and LONG can also be seen as decimal degrees,
as in your case N48.87329 E8.6923
The TT device understands them both, just type them in....

Latitude & longitude


Here is the way to find the Lat/Lon Info on TomTom.
Tap on main screen. You will be taken to Main menu 1 of 2. Tap on the arrow. You will move to Main menu 2 of 2. Tap on Browse map. You will see the lat/Lon info on the bottom left hand corner (of a selected location) Tap on another location and you will see that the lat/Lon will change to that of the newly selected location. You can use the slider on the right hand side to zoom in or zoom out so that you can get the Lat/Lon info of far off locations. However, for this purpose, google maps would be a better option. But if you know the address, use the find button which will give you easier access to Lat/Lon info.

If you are referring to Latitude and Longitude , yes. You can use those co-ordinates to navigate to a destination.

You can fed those into the GPS and navigate. Please note, you will need the maps of the region involved. Click (Tap) on the main screen. Tap on: navigate to Tap on : arrow Tap on: Latitude longitude Enter latitude and longitude using keyboard, Latitude first and longitude next. Be careful while you do this and do not forget to enter the directions North, West etc.

How do I use coordinates? I entered map coordinates and it took us to the wrong place.


Some Tomtoms can use latitude and longitude coordinates. They refer, of course, to points on the map.
To use coordinates on some tomtoms you tap the Browse Map option. A general Map of the route is displayed. The screen has three buttons at the bottom
  1. Options
  2. Find
  3. an icon for the point on the map.
  4. Done
Tap the Options button: The Map detail Preferences appears, offering the choice to put a check mark in POI, Favorites, images. At the bottom of screen you have 3 buttons : POI, Advanced, Done.

Tap Advanced: In thsi screen you can put a checl mar on Names, Markers, and Coordinates.
Put a Check mark on Coordinates and press Done, Then Done again until you exit all those options.

Now your tomtom is configured to display coordinates. Be aware that GPS technology was created for military purposes and its civilian uses cannot be expected to offer pin point accuracy. It took an act of the US president to allow its use for civilian localization.

When you plan a route you can use longitude and latitude. Here is the icon you should like for.

TomTom One 3rd Edition - Latitute Longitude are Wrong


Are you sure that you have set the latitude and longitude units correctly? Under Preferences go to Set Units, press done until you come to latitudes and longitudes. You have three choices, Degrees in decimal form, Minutes, or Minutes and Seconds. Printed maps might use any of these forms of latitude and longitude. Avation maps are usually different than ground maps. Hiking maps also use either of the three forms.
