Question about Tomtom GO 700 GPS Receiver
How do you get it out of this screen? Can't navigate to new address because there is a "Safety Lock Enabled" which grays out the button for "address" -- making it impossible to input a destination address. Can anybody help?
My son had this problem until we finally realized he had to stop his vehicle, perhaps even turn the engine off, before entering the address info, etc. If he tries to enter it while the vehicle is moving he will sometimes get the "Safety Lock Enabled" problem. So far this has worked.

Go to change preferences, then to safety preferences, chose either enable safety lock or disable safety lock. Hit done then choose to turn off map display , never or above a certain speed or always. hit done

Its a nightmare, the same happens to me, turns on at random and no options to turn off. I think it must be a design flaw. There is no option to for "saftey locks" in the menus.

For those of you who don't have the "heart" icon, you can go to "safety preferences" and make sure the first option "show only essential menu options while driving" is not checked. This enables to enter a adress while driving. Otherwise, you need to stop the car so the GPS knows you are NOT moving.

SOURCE: safety lock enabled
if safety lock enabled then some options are disabled.
Simply stop moving (stop driving) and all options will come back!!!
and go to Preferences and select Heart icon and select "Disable safety lock"
