Question about Tomtom One XL GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Map directions I am having a lot of problems with missing roads, directions that are not accurate and add travel time and reversed hundred blocks on roads which take me miles out of the way. Is there any indication that Tom Tom will be switching to the NAVTEQ mapping instead of using Tele Atlas

TomTom has merged with Tele Atlas so that's a no go on the NAVTEQ maps. Newly built roads may not immediately show up on your TomTom, but you can definitely try upgrading your maps and using the Map Share feature to keep your maps as up to date as possible

As you push remote door travels a shot distance stops,push button and travels short distance again and again. What is wrong?

Most common failure is internal plastic gear. If we assume that this is the failure i would suggest disconnect the travel engage latch to the non engaged position. Cycle the door and observe if there comes a time that the motor is humming and the chain or latch is not moving. Other than reversing for just a brief moment at the end of travel at no time should the motor hum as turning and the latch feature not move.

What I suspect is happening in the down direction door wants to close and as the gear rotates the gear slips . This repair is not so difficult for the DIY with some mechanic skills and tools. Lots of u-tube showing you how, Parts are available. Confirm the right part for your specific model. Purchase the gear and shaft as an assembly if you not sure about the difficulty. Part prices are all over the map. Shop around. You can buy just the gear a little more difficult to replace.

In rural areas does not foliow most direct route

You can try and see if the right Preference is chosen on menu..... Tools ..... Settings.....Map.... under Avoidances press the Tab..... make sure you just have the correct things you want to avoid chosen if Highway is checked uncheck it.

When you travel and set a place to go to, go down the turn by turn direction before you go and see if its the way you like to travel..... if not you can go to the main menu and take a Detour, it will reroute to a different set of road

Many times my navigation system leads me to roads that are unnecessary to follow (like a tourist-view route), it only costs me more time if I follow exactly the same ways he asks me to follow. I wish it...

Go to Tools.... Settings....Navigation.....under Route Preference set it to Faster Time if you need to change it just press to Shorter Distance or Off Road.... if you change it make sure you press OK n bottom screen

Faster Time I use


Avoidances.....should be it....make sure Highway is Not checked... if you make changes here also press Ok on bottom screen

I only keep checked U-turns ...Traffic...Car Pool ...Unpaved roads

Before you travel, add your route to the GPS, do a trial run from home and see which direction it is taking you by pressing the turn arrows
If that isnt the way you want to go, on the map screen press menu then press detour, this will take you in another direction again scroll down the turns and see the route

Bike has 16000 miles. ran ok until 3wk ago, now takes multiple tries to start, occasionally misses at constant speed, misses at idle, cuts at first when throttle slowly turned at idle. local shop with...

The "mechanic" who told you that is lying or stupid. Bikes come from the factory set to run properly, not miss and cut out. The first thing you need to do is find a different mechanic. I would try some different gasoline, perhaps add some "Seafoam", check the spark plugs and spark plug wires, and look for vacuum leaks. Good luck.

TomTom GPS actual position does not line up on the map

This may not be the answer you are looking for but here goes.

#1 Is this occurring in one area all the time or randomly?

#2 how far are you traveling when ou notice these type of problems is it just a few miles or have you made a large trip.

if this is in a small area and does deviate all the time in the same area I would expec that this is a map issue.

I see that you did mention that you have the most upto date map possible that would be version 8.15

Just remember the map information in your gps is only as good as the map that is in there and it may not be accurate.

With all that said if you could post back the latitude and longitude of where you are discussing i maybe able to check for you if mine is done the same way.

Some roads missing from the map

you want to ensure that you have the latest map available for your unit for this model it would be version 8.15 but do keep in mind before purchasing that this may not solve your problem as the maps may not be updated yet to reflect the changes in your city it may take 2-3 map revisions before you see the most accurate data for your location
