While driving with a destination entered, the 700 will make a click noise and the screen will freeze with a message at the bottom "enter location". All buttons and commands are frozen. If I leave it alone for awhile, it will make the "clicking" noise and return to my destination map. The symbol at the bottom left disappears so I can't tell if it's black or not. If I touch the screen it will then allow me to enter commands. I've already reset the gps location with a CSR. Thinking it was a loss of gps signal I purchased an external antenna but haven't tried it yet. It's mounted on my dash the same place it was when it worked correctly.

Re: enter location message
Joe, have you tried the external yet? Did that fix it? This sounds like a Hard Drive problem, but I would try re-loading /reflashing nand flash before I went the hard drive route. Do you have the software?

if you enter a destination, you should then be able to go to settings, click on settings and go to favorites, then you should be able to select add and then you can pick from destinations you have previously entered, you should then even be able to give it a name

Refer to Page 8 of your owner's manual: On the main screen, touch "Where to?", then enter the state, city and address at the next screen. Once you've entered the information, touch the address and your unit will probably ask "Navigate to there?" and confirm... and off you go. You can save addresses to your Favorites list as well.
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. :-)
