    It does not do any good because the GPS still knows where it is and no matter where I want to go it still tells me to go west on my street into the housing development rather then out to the main road to everywhere.

Was just given a TomTom and car adappter to use on my trip from MI to MD. I've never used a GPS and no manual was included how to program it from start to final destination


The TomTom only needs for you to enter your destination address. Once that's in, you're ready to go. Along your route you can tap the center of the screen to find POINTS OF INTEREST such as FOOD, LODGING, etc...but will retain destination info 'til either cleared or changed to new destination.

To enter your destination, tap center of screen. There you choose house address, business address or city's center. If you choose street address screen opens to:keyboard. Type in destination State, ie; Maryland. Once you've typed state, hit DONE in bottom right corner. The screen then goes to CITY. Type in destination city then hit done again. Follow the same steps for STREET NAME & HOUSE #. Click DONE & CONTINUE as prompted. TomTom will then target your location and you're ready to hit the road. It will show you your distance and time (ETA). It will also show you the speed limit where you are and the actual speed you are going.

When you pull over for gas, food, lodging, shopping, sight-seeing or whatever, it will automatically account for this and will continuously update your coordinates to get you back to the highway/road you need to be on. And when you're ready to come back to MI all you have to do is hit the home icon and it will automatically map your trip back.(Home is - or should be - set to the home address of the owner of the GPS).

All-in-All it is user friendly and very simple to use.

If you need additional info, please don't hesitate to ask.

I hope this info was helpful to you. Good Luck!
Have a great trip and drive safely. :-)

Type in address took me 4 house away from address type in home address said house was left and the house is on the right


The directions are for approximate location when using addresses. If a street has 10 houses on it, the GPS software assumes that each address is 1/10 the street length apart which is why the address might be a bit off. Even GoogleMaps has the same problem. Their locations are not always exact.

Wrong speed limit show


For posted speed limits, street names, etc, corrections can be made using the map corrections tab. For correcting a home address, I do not know. In fact, I have the same problem, i.e., an incorrect or unrecognized home address was enterred that I need to correct.

Can't get passed the searching for streets...


OK! I'll help you! read this fast! :)

I have a tomtom too, and it sounds like the map files are corrupt, it should have come with a CD, you need to plug your tomtom into your computer with the given USB, and turn on TOMTOM HOME. You'll then need to go to "Back up and Restore" and restore your tomtom to the factory settings! Also you might try to push the very small reset button located in a little hole somewhere on the device, you'll have to hold it down with a pin or something! THAT MAY WORK... but i know for a FACT that the restore WILL.

ALSO, if you dont have TOMTOM HOME, you can download it HERE: http://www.tomtom.com/services/service.php?id=16&tab=87

Hopefully this helps!!! :) Have fun on your trip!

Wrong address?


More than likely your house number is not in the data base. I have the same problem. What I have done is when you want to setup your tt home address go where you get full bars and are ready to navigate. Go to set home address and tap current location as your home address.
Hope this helps.

Text to speech incorrect info


Yes, this is basically normal. This is not a shortcoming of the GPS per se, but of the maps that it's using and where on the map it has recorded that certain addresses are located.

The maps that the GPS systems don't (typically, to my knowledge) have every building on them, instead they just have numbers recorded every so often on the street and then the machine interpolates where a particular address ought to be based on known intersections. E.g., 150 Foo Street ought to somewhere around the middle of the 100 block of Foo St. on the "even" side of the street. So this is probably why it thinks your apartment is slightly further up the street than it is; when people build things, we often don't allocate exactly the same amount of frontage to each street number, hence the offsets.

I'm still pretty impressed with my Garmin and doubt I could find my way home without it. Good luck!

Wrong directions


I believe the problem is the street address. If your address is an even number, the the unit believes the house is on the right in most instances.
