Changing the time on the tomtom 720 go

We have daylight savings time in California and the tomtom doesn't change the time. Shouldn't it change it's time when it connects to the satellite? It should correct itself.

No it will not automatically change you will also noticethat on longer trips where you change time zones while travelling you will need to change it automatically when it updates from the satellite it will only make adjustments to minutes and seconds

    just to clarify the satellite does not recive information from your unit it only the satellite only is used for your unit to determine the location you are at by seeing multiple satellites and calculating the time it takes to get respose from each it is then able to calculate distance from each and formulate where you are there is no real communication with the satellite

Setting up Samsung 32 in HDTV On the clock setting screen for Daylight Savings Time - do I choose On or Auto? I live in California. Thanks.


Try AUTO.
When Daylight Saving takes effect you can go into setup CLOCK and click DST on.
When Daylight Saving ends you can go into setup CLOCK and click DST off.

I am going from Phoenix, AZ to Oceanside CA but can't seem to find how to change the state from Arizona to California. Please help me.


you shouldnt have to change anything, just tap the map screen, then navigate to, then either use the address tab and enter city/street and house number.

if you dont know the exact address, use the zip code feature.

I can't change the time on my tom tom 720. any help out there??


Hi There,

If you are trying to change the time while your tomtom is not connected to the computer and using 'operate my device' it will not let you do it.

If you are using the device while it is disconnected from the computer and you still cannot change the time, try and delete the mapsettings.cfg which is in your tomtom map folder eg f:/Australia/Mapssettings.cfg

hope thie helps.

Thanks,
Pabs
