Question about Tomtom ONE 130 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

In the last week I have bought 2 tomtom ones. one was a 125 the other a 130. Both have given me the same problem. On arrival of my destination it is taking me anywhere from 1/8 mile to 1/2 mile away from my address. Same road but wrong place. I have dealt with tomtom tech but never got a solution. CAN U HELP?

First thing to check is make sure your maps are up to date. Run your device through TomTom Home and make the proper updates. 1/2 a mile away seems too far of a distance to be off by. I've taken trips on my TomTom and even other brands for that matter, and it is not unusual to be slightly off or announce the arrival a few hundred feet too early. If it is navigating you to the wrong street, you need to update your maps. The maps are very reliable on my device so use that as a starting point.

This is a very common problem with ANY brand of GPS. Even if you have the most current and updated map, there are some mistakes in the GPS addresses. It should only happen occasionally, maybe once every couple of weeks. As I said before, it's not unheard of for TomTom, Garmin, Magellan or any bradn of GPS

it may be trying to get you back on track or if when turning it on it trys to take you a previously sort location you may have set this as your home. make sure your actual home address is stored as your home address on the gps unit.

GPS does not receive signal


Anyone who has a unit INSIDE its year warranty should either take it back for exchange or refund, or if the people in the store you brought it from are no help, tell EVERYONE about your poor service, then contact tomtom via their website. they will arrange for the product to be picked up, repaired & delivered back to you.

If its a battery problem the unit still works while charging!

If not it sounds like the OS or SD card has become corrupt.

you'll have to wipe both clean & start again...

tomtom will talk you through this either via an email or on the phone.

Tomtom - time of arrival


It is possible that you have the TomTom set for "walking routes" or "bicycle routes" or "limited speed." (I have a TomTom One 3rd edition, so if you have a different model the menus/icons may be different, but it's worth a shot.)

Click on the main part of the screen, while on the main navigation screen. Then click on "Change preferences." Then click the blue arrow to scroll to the Preferences 3 of 5 page. Click on "Planning preferences." Choose the planning preferences that you want. Hope this helps...
