Take out the memory card and then reset the tom tom (with a pencil or something sharp), and then put the memory card back in and push the on button. let it charge up for as long as you can.
good luck

How can I start using my new Nuvi 2569 sat nav?


Step Description Step 1:
Warm Up If possible, let the GPS warm up for a few minutes once turned on. This allows the GPS to acquire its current position via satellite. Step 2:
Determine Preferences Choose day or night colors to display a suitable screen for the time of day. Step 3:
Adjust Volume Adjust the volume so the device can be heard over traffic noise. Step 4:
Enter Address Through the onscreen navigation option, enter the street address for the destination. Step 5:
Verify Route Check the listed route for accuracy, adjusting as needed. Step 6:
Follow Directions Follow the directions given by the GPS device to reach your destination. Some models, especially in-vehicle navigation, offer voice directions. Step 7:
Turn Off Once you've reached your destination, turn off the GPS device to save its battery charge. Step 8:
Store Device Store the GPS device out of sight if possible, or take it with you to prevent theft.

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. :-)

Hi There, Just bought a new Nuvi 255, I was just driving to a destination and out of sudden, my GPS got a message mentioning, loss connection to sattelite. It stayed on for like 30 mins, till I reach my...


Unless you are driving in a dangerously remote area of some desert, or a large city, GPS units rarely lose signal. Chances are you have a defective unit, I'd contact Garmin support: Here.
Hope this has been of some help.

Waiting for valid gps signal


Try resetting your device. Depending on the model you have, this is done by either using the pin or holding down the power button for about 15 - 30 seconds. You'll know the reset has been successful when the legal agreement come up when it comes back on. Once this is done, go outside and on the device, go to the satellite detail screen and wait until several (about 4) of the bars are 75% or higher (they should change colors). You should go the the regular screen after that and you should be able to navigate again.
