Wrong street numbers

The street numbers are showing up 3 miles down the road from where they should be.

    Yes, I ran it through TomTom Home before and after using the GPS, and the numbers were still 3 miles off. I also went through the process on the TomTom website of checking for errors, and it said that there were none.

    Did you update your maps and run the device through TomTom Home before using?

This sounds like a more advanced mapping error in itself. It could be possible the mapping data is incorrect, or has been corrected, but not yet incorporated within new map updates. You've taken all the right steps to correct it on your own so your next best bet is to verify the inaccuracy with TomTom. Perhaps borrow a friend's TomTom and if their street names are accurate, your device might simply be defective, in which case you can request a new unit.

Triton 400 sometimes street maps move anywhere from 100 ft either way to 1/8 mile away from route and makes it show you are off road or in wrong lane.


This problem is most caused by two possible errors. One the maps were not prepared correctly.

Two your navigation settings are wrong. Please reset the datum to WGS84 and see if this helsp.

The distance for the trip in my favorite is wrong.


Sounds like you might have "off road" selected for your navigation preference. Shortest distance between 2 points is a straight line, or great circle for GPS units. As the crow flies will be shorter than a road route.

I would like to just use my tomtom just to see the road names


Under the change preferences general menu, use the right arrow to go to the 4th page (4/8) and tap the Street Name preferences. Then put a check mark in the boxes Show Street names, Show next Street name, and Show current name on map.
Press Done, twice.
As some menu options may be hidden, the Street name preferences option may be on some other page..

Yeah, well, maybe the street is not in the map base. I have a TomTom One 3rd Edition, and there are buildings and streets that are over 5 years old that are not contained in the maps.

One way to find out if the street is there is to drive to the location and see if it shows that you are on a road. If no road, then the map is outdated.

In the last week I have bought 2 tomtom ones. one was a 125 the other a 130. Both have given me the same problem. On arrival of my destination it is taking me anywhere from 1/8 mile to 1/2 mile away from...


First thing to check is make sure your maps are up to date. Run your device through TomTom Home and make the proper updates. 1/2 a mile away seems too far of a distance to be off by. I've taken trips on my TomTom and even other brands for that matter, and it is not unusual to be slightly off or announce the arrival a few hundred feet too early. If it is navigating you to the wrong street, you need to update your maps. The maps are very reliable on my device so use that as a starting point.

Garmin Nuvi 350 not recognizing some major streets


Sure enough it was the zoom. If it is a very small street, you have to zoom in to be able to see that you're driving on a road. Thanks for the help!

I had a similar problem. It was that the street addressing was wrong. Our street for example only physically goes to 199. But the software shows it goes to 299. This offsets all the address on the street, the farther I go the worse it gets!

Keying in street addresses


To find streets that are numerical, not names, enter the address normally to start. Enter the State, City, and House Number. When it asks you to enter the street, look at the bottom of the keyboard. You will see a key marked 123. Press this key, and numbers will show up instead of letters. Type in just the numbers (25 for 25th Avenue, etc.) and hit Done. The street should show as (25th (St., Ave., etc)). Press the correct entry.
