New GPS for Car - mounting directions not clear

Directions on how to mount my XL330-S TomTom are just pictures with no written instructions! Does the "sticky" mount go on the window only or can it be placed on a front dash. (Altima's window is very far from a power source.

You can mount to the dash there should be a black disk that came with your package it is round and will have a sticky pad on the back of it with a piece of shiny paper on it first find there you want to mount it and clean the surface well i would suggest rubbing alchol to clean the surface then remove the shiny paper from the disk and with the sticky pad don attach to the spot you cleaned from there you just attach the mounting suction cup to it

Do I need to plug my new Tomtom into the computer before starting it for the first time? Picture directions suggest perhaps. Written directions do not say to. Which? donnabmu@nb.sympatico.ca


You don'y have to connect your new TomTom to your PC/Mac before using it.
The most important reason to connect it at some point is to download updates to fix any bugs. it will automatically detect if your TomTom device is connected and offer you any available updates. Installing TomTom Home (Free download from xxx) gives you all these benefits.
You can also use it to download voice packs, extra maps and premium features (all mostly cost money)

I just recieved a reconditioned XL330-S and wonder if the soft rubber disc on the back of the mounting bracket is supposed to be mounted on the windshield? If so how, it doesn't have any adhesive on it.


its not suppose to have any adhesive on it. not sure with one (mount ) tomtom gave you with your unit (they have a few differant ones) but if its the one that looks like the one pictured below, you just press it on the windshield(make sure its good and clean)

that is absolutely the worst mount them make, normally they wont stay on long and your gps will fall off and hit the floor and most likely damage it.

you should of gotten a black plastic disk to use to put under the mount for good adhesion .

How to mount tomtom 125 to the car


Alcohol works to a great degree to clean some surfaces. I have used lighter fluid to dissolve glue or adhesive residue that may exist. The alcohol will not work on a poorly cleaned surface. And lighter fluid does not seem to harm plastics. Use sparingly and clean in two or three apps.
Your solution seems to be that you are trying to attach the GPS suction cup to the dash without the plastic disc that comes with the unit. Glue the disc onto as flat a part of the dash as possible, Prefferably on the top of the dash. Then attach the Tom Tom with the cup onto the disc. A slight downward pressure while turning the locking handle is all that is necessary. I had a momentary adjustment time to learn how to lock mine. Love the TomTom GPS compared to the Navigon I returned to get an
XL330 S.

Unsure how to mount tomtom on car windshield


I was perplexed by the lack of instruction as well. However, I took the unit to my car and realized that the black disk is not needed for mounting the unit to the windshield. If you look carefully at the bumpy plastic ring just above the suction area, there are two little pictures on the back of a lock; one open and one closed. With the ring in the open position, push it against the windshield and turn it to the closed position. It then sticks to the glass very well. I now just snap the unit in and out of the mounting ring that I leave stuck to the glass. I hope this helps. I assume that the presence of the black disk is to bring people closer together with digital communication.

Deleaying directions


Hi,

I am not sure exactly what your problem is as you don't give much detail but I assume you are having problems with your TomTom continuing to give directions to some destination you already went to.

To stop previous directions :
  • Tap the screen
  • Move Right through the pages available until you see Icon for "Clear Route"
  • Select " Clear Route " and the directions should stop
  • Remember , each time you use your TomTom to go to a new destination once you have got there you will need to clear the route ( as above ) in order to stop your TomTom trying to take you there again.
Good Luck

Tomtom One attachement to the alternate mounting kit


I just hung up with TOMTOM support. If you have the first edition TOMTOM you need the EZ Port Mount Kit for the 1140, 1140S, XL340 or XL340s. Not it isn't rocket science, but it would have been nice to have clear compatability information on the box. Hope this helps.
