TomTom One XL going slow - lag issue

My One XL is taking upto 5mins to calculate/recalculate routes and there's a lag time of about 10seconds when you touch the screen. It's driving me round the bend (quite literally!)

Short of resetting the whole thing (after backing it up), is there another solution?

    The vehicle icon moves so slowly and the map "jumps" instead of smoothly showing you progessing on the map.

SOURCE: Garmin Quest is out of whack

Hello, I currently own a Garmin quest myself, and some time ago I had some strange problems myself, I am a electronics technician, and I do have a work around for you. I will explain the problems and a cure for you to try, none of the work arounds depend on any parts to be removed.

1. NO RECEIVING SATELLITE TELEMETRY. I beleieve this could be due to a number of reasons, but more so at sometime corrupted telemetry was the problem to fix this,
a turn GPS on when booted (initialised)
b. depress menu
select settings
select Time Setup
when in Time Setup depress MENU
Select SET DATE
Depress OK button
Depress OK button again on the numberic keypad that appears on the screen (DONE)
what this seems to do is resets the internal date/time clock and the unit starts to work again.
the Second workaround is this but takes hours to perform.

Simply turn the Guest on and allow the battery to fully discharge, usually this works to TOTALLY flush the Memory again, but on my unit I have to setup all the maps again, this is easy to perform, but just takes time. I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: tomtom one xl freezing on start up screen

OK... I found an amature solution;

- Do a soft reset of the system, with the paperclip (see tomtom site)
- Put the device on the docking station and connect it to power as well as to your computer. While it's turned off
- Turn on the TOMTOM while connected to the computer
- Start the TOMTOM Home software
- And it made connection again
- Disconnect the device via the software
- Take the device out of the docking station
- Turn it off and on once

This worked for me, my next step would have been the support desk. Grtz Derk

Go to TomTom Home on your computer and do a update for your unit. In the update list you should see a GPS quick fix which helps the TomTom's aquire a signal faster. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: continually returns to demo mode

I had to contact TomTom to answer this, their advice was:
On your device tap the bars that show the strength of the satellites. Then top right tap the clock and hold for 30 seconds.

I tried this but it didn't make any difference to me, but I thought it may help other users. I'll let you know when I get any further advice.

Regards,

Sean

Keeps recalculating route and rerouting


This may or may not help you.  If you are in area where the unit cannot get a signal it will tell you recalculating or if you are in area where it's maps are not up to date it may tell you the same thing. One other possible solution, shorten the trip, on a long trip the unit will/might find several possible routes and based on your settings it is unable to select just one route so it is choosing between two at the same time and it will keep recalculating until circumstances allow it to decide on just the ONE route.  Change some of your settings in the setup screen and see if that helps or if it is a long trip, break the trip up into smaller segmants. Hope this helps

Just brought tomtom start. will it give me more than one route to any given destination?


There are settings in the GPS that allow you to pick what type of routes you want to have the unit pick for you. They can be based on time, distance, or least fuel used. You can also do the following: if you know at least part of the route to your destination, and the GPS doesn't pick the particular way you prefer you can just start driving off route. The GPS will realize that you are off route and it will recalculate itself. You can also add "Way Points" to your route that would force the GPS to calculate the route to the way you want it to go.

How do i get tomtom to reculate routre


Turn the GPS on. Tap on the LOWER RIGHT square of the main screen. Then tap on the "FIND ALTERNATIVE ROUTE" button. One of the options should be "recalculate route"

By the way, a TomTom GPS will automatically recalculate the route if you make a wrong turn or if you go past a street you should have taken.

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.
