I have seen this when entering addresses with a letter in them such as 3N124. The address does not enter correctly you will get the wrong address and location. I am trying to find
out if the tomtom supports this address. So far I have been told, NO, by Tomtom support person, but have a hard time believing this since a Magellian accepts this and works. However I have seen a Magellian get my location wrong. I believe the map needs updating. Check the location by view route and zoom in on the location, does the address equal the location that is off if it does it is most likely the map is the problem. If the location equals the address entered maybe the sound is off, stop before entering your home and check the location vs your location on the map. Check you map year, also have someone else check with their gps, might help.

The GPS signal shown on tomtom HOME is a demo and in no way represents the actual funtionalitiy of your GPS unit. The GPS receiver if still not working after you did 'the obvious' needsto be replaced. Workshop repair required

Unable to change symbol on tomtom 920 sat navigation.


using TT home check that you still have the symbol you want installed on the TT. I had a similar problem where it would seem to forget what I had choosen on occasion and sometimes I had to use TT home to check and re-install. problem itself seemed to just go away. (Guess it got sick of me telling it LOL)

Tomtom home won't run on my computer


I have TomTom Home running on my Mac desktop and PC laptop. Can you tell me what computer you're using? If the computer operating system is older than 10 years, then I don't think any software would run on your computer unless the software was 10 years old. There's been alot of upgrades to hardware and software....

Attempting to download tomtom.com/home. Did not load automatically, so did as suggested and searched for tomtom.com/home. Google asks if I want tomtom.mobile, etc. Do not have broadband. What do you...


have you tried setting your home address on the tomtom itself? I was having the same problem until I did that and then it downloaded. But it wont download by itself. You have to go into your "my computer" file and find the tomtom device and select installtomtomhome

TomTom GO 910 - screensaver?


try this it does take a while to do.
STEP 1

Connect your TomTom to your computer1.gif via USB and open up your Windows Explorer and go to the drive. (It will be listed as TOMTOM (E) or some other drive letter).

Copy the Yellow Folders one by one to your PC. Ideally, save all the folders under a new folder that you name.

You may find that the folder ttntools and gns may not be copied. This is o.k. if they aren't.

STEP 2

Format your Tomtom via MY Computer.

STEP 3

Copy the Yellow Folders from the backup1.gif you made in STEP 1 back to the TomTom.

STEP 4

Open TomTom Home
Click on Upate Now.
Install the latest update onto your TomTom.
Once installed, switch your TomTom off, then disconnect if from the PC.

Thats it. From now on, make a full backup using TomTom Home prior to any updates.

Also note, that copying all the files will take some time.

No maps found??


The problem is caused by a version mismatch between the Application version and the Map Version. They must both be the same. For example, if the TomTom has not had the application updated, but you updated the maps, the TomTom will not know how to read the file.

Make sure that if you are trying to use a version 815 map, that you are using a version 8.XXX application too. I had to upload two application version changes before I could read the new USA maps.
