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....

Can my TomTom XXL 540-S be used with GPS coordinates?


If you are referring to Latitude and Longitude , yes. You can use those co-ordinates to navigate to a destination. This especially works fine in countries where the Avenue and street information is not available. Google maps can give you the latitude and longitude coordinates. 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.

Dell Latitude D510 Screen Failed


Hello,

The 14.1" inch screen is compatible with Latitude models D500, D505, D510, D600, D610 and Inspiron models 500m, 510m, 600m.

You may also need a screen inverter - in fact that is often the reason a screen is considered to be failing. The lcd inverter can be one of the most common items to become defective in a laptop computer. You may need a lcd inverter replacement if your screen is dim, dark, colored oddly, blinking, flickering or has dark stripes. Just something to keep in mind.
Hope this helps,

Chris

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.
