Question about Tomtom One XL GPS Receiver

Floating in space even on interstate

As I'm driving down the interstate in NC (and other places), it seems to take me "off-road" and appears to be lost trying to find the road, but showing other roads not in the area. The screen appears that we are flying in space or driving through the brown area. There is a strong signal. Can't trust where it will take me. HELP!

As I always suggest, your maps might be off if you haven't updated since you bought the device, or haven't updated in quite some time. Run the device through TomTom Home to update your maps, and it should provide the fix

Unit seems to be nose down position front wheel makes contact back and side wheels don't


With these pool cleaners, this is a common and easily corrected problem. Check the following things. First, make sure that the filter bag is not full. If it is, it could be weighing down the cleaner on one side. Next, remove the head float and shake it. If there is water in the float, you will need to replace it. This is most likely the cause of your problem. Finally, check the hose floats to make sure that they are evenly spaced and are not causing the cleaner to float improperly.

1995 nissan maxima fishtails just bought it used is this common?


Fishtailing on a front wheel drive car is not really a common problem, no matter what make it is. The Maxima is generally a good handling car and 1995 was the first year that they used the VG30DE engine which had plenty of power. These cars performed like they had V-8's. With a front wheel drive car, when they accelerate, the drive line is pulling the car. Where ever the front goes the back follows, when you put your foot into it. NOW, if you have a tire problem where they are no longer able to hold the road, the rear will slide all over the place. If this is the case, replace the tires. 1st check the tire pressures! If your car fishtailed on a slippery road where it had just started to rain and oil commonly floats to the surface of the road in the first few minutes that it rains, you need to drive with caution. I drive an old 1981 Mercedes 300 TD wagon. When it is wet, prior to my replacing my tires, the car would slip and slide all over the place in the rain. I recently replaced my tires with a new 80,000 mile tire Cooper came out with and the ride and handling are awesome. The car sticks whether it is wet or dry and the road noise has been cut in half. I had never realized how bad my tires were until I replaced them. My tires still had a legal amount of tread but had start to crack from age. SO, to sum it up: the car in general, is an excellent car with a reasonably reliable record and few weak areas. You have made a good choice for a car.

2001 Ford Taurus rear end bounces/slips off to side slightly


This is most likly a low RR tire. Check the tire pressure first. If that is OK, I would slowly drive to somone qualified to examine the rear suspention to see what might have broken.
good luck

Engine dies while driving down the interstate. battery gauge reads charged. it will not trun over. seems like the starter is not getting power


How do you re-start after this happens?
I suggest you carry a small volt meter, and check power and voltage at the battery and starter while the problem is happening. (I don't have to tell you that testing should be done well off the road where it's safe!!!)

We were sent over the worse mountain roads going from Lexington SC to Franklin NC. It most certainly was a dangerous way to go on windy mountain roads. The NUVI indicated it was the fastest way and the...


Welcome to FixYa:

I am not sure which model of the Nuvi you are using but I have the Nuvi 660 and can feel your pain. What use is going over a mountain or down roads made of gravel and miles from civilization only because it is technically a "shorter route"

So here are the basic directions to change that setting and get the Nuvi to keep you on the highways and interstates. If it varies too much, either respond with your model number or go to Garmin.com and get the manual for your model:

Go to SETTINGS
then NAVIGATION
click on ROUTE PREFERENCES

You should find what you need here, but to tell the Nuvi which type of roads to avoid and which ones to stick to:

go back to the SETTINGS menu
touch NAVIGATION again
and click on AVOIDANCES


Hope this helps and be sure to keep us updated!
