GPS Taking to teh Wrong Direction

Hi,
I have a Tomtom GPS. Last night it took me in the opposite direction. I needed to go North and it took me South. Today -- same story. I was near the railroad tracks and they were on the right, it showed they were on the left. It told me go left on a one way street alloing only right turns. What is going on? I never had thsi issue before? Is it toasted?

Thanks,
EW

If maps get outdated enough, any device can go awry. Keeping your maps updated should keep it working fine. TomTom has Tele Atlas map updates at their map store here: http://www.tomtom.com/products/maps/select.php

If your maps are in fact updated and you're still having difficulty, it might be time for an upgrade

Was going north and the map said i was going south


Are you sure you were heading north at that particular time?
Gps show your direction at that moment and time. Just because your road is going north does not mean that the road is always going north, sometimes they change directions to go around obstacles that were in the way of the road design, IE mountain, town, river.
The sign for the highway may say your are heading north when in actuality you are heading south to go around something.

The gps will not take into consideration the curve of the road, it just tells you the direction you are heading. Hope this helps.

Try putting your gps on the shortest distance not the scenic route. That is in the system menu area.

Latitude is N or S, longitude is E or W, correct.

When entering degrees, minutes and seconds, you dont have to type the double apostrophe at the end off seconds, the device will understand...

ALT and LONG can also be seen as decimal degrees,
as in your case N48.87329 E8.6923
The TT device understands them both, just type them in....

Wrong Way


Mine does the same thing, I think it's because of the settings to "find fastest route". I just ignore what it says and go the way I choose, it recalculates the route and all is well.

Compass pointing in opposite direction


Do you have your unit set for north up or track up? This might cause this problem.
