Since I first turned on my unit it uses Sarasota as it home to travel. How do I change the home to be my address instead for the home location?

When you turn the system on ... the first screen shows you four icons. the two gold wheels (furthest right) touch that icon. you can then navigate through volume; calibration ... screen measuring?; battery status; your date & time settings; brightness; and language. hope this helps. tinkr

How do I delete previous destinations


1. From the Main Menu, tap the Go To icon.
2. Tap the Previous icon.
3. Tap Delete All to clear the list.
4. To confirm the deletion, tap Yes

If htat doesn't work:

There is a hidden service menu that will return the unit to as it left the factory.

Go to the system menu:

On the menu bar ( the top bar where it says Sytem Settings)
Tap...
Left corner twice,
Right corner twice,
Left corner once,
Right corner once.
It will bring up a hidden menu.

The first thing on the hidden menu is "reset for first use".

Press that and you have done the equivalent of a hard reset.

You want to be very careful when in this menu as if you select the wrong tab you might lock up your unit. This is a backdoor hidden menu that is not commonly known.

Keeps telling me it needs to restart to increase preformances.


Copied from prim41:
Do this:
Go to settings
go to system
now, at the very top it should say "system settings"
here's the tricky part:
tap the top left corner twice
tap the top right corner twice
tap the left corner once
tap the right corner once
This should bring up a hidden menu
Go to "Reset for first use"

All done :)

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..

My nextar p3 freezes up


Sounds like the sensitivity is whacked...can you hear the type sound. Mine does this sometimes and I solve it by using 2 thumbs and constantly push the settings icon, on each side. It will bring up the x for sensitivity...using the stylus tap gently and then twice to set. Hope this is what you were looking for.

The unit has to have a clear view of the sky to receive satellites. Also there is a "use indoors" setting that disables the receiver.  Tap menu, then tap the setup icon with the picture of gears or a wrench, look for an icon that says gps, or mode.  The mode should be set to normal.  If you are still having problems acquiring, try plugging it into an external antenna.  If it works with external antenna only, that indicates a problem with your internal antenna.

Volume on my new nextar GPS X3-T isn't loud enough


You can buy an FM modulator at any wal-mart that will plug easily into the headphone port on the gps unit and play the sound out through the radio in your car. I had the same problem with my nextar gps but since I purchased the fm modulator it is plenty loud enough.
