How do i find a town center on a garmin nuvi 205 sold in france


Unlike TomTom satnavs Garmins don't have an option of setting the centre of a town. The only option is to enter a common street name, like "Main Street", and drive to there. If there's no "Main Street" in the town type any letter and press "done"so it will show you a list of streets to select from.

How do i load favorites into my tomtom 720.please set out steps


Depending on the operating system of your TomTom you should be able to tap the screen then tap the forward arrow until you see "add favorite". Tap "add favorite" then tap "address", then tap "street and house number". Type in the city. This will bring up a screen with several cities on it. Select the city you want, then type in the street name. the next screen will let you put the street number in. tap done. Tap OK on the next screen.

Xl340s will not speak street names , street names on key board will not take sometimes. new unit out of box


You need to use a "Computer" Voice I believe Susan is the female option and Richard is the male option. Only the computer voices can read street names.

Go to the town but not the adress in country.


You need to enter the name of the town first and touch the name of the town at the top when you see it.

You need to enter the name of the road or street next and touch the name of the street at the top when you see it displayed.

It will then ask you for the house number and Ok

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 If no road, then the map is outdated.

My Tom Tom XL 330 S doesn't name the streets-just says TURN HERE


Hi,

When you choose a voice on your tomtom device, you will need to select a voice with the word 'computer' next to gender of the voice you select.

this will activate two option on the next screen allowing you to tick read street names.

Thanks,
Pabz

How do i down load new info-


I'm assuming you have the right map installed.Make sure you type in the right city (town/village). Make sure you are spelling the street name correctly.

If your street has been there for more than a year then it may be a map error. Try browsing the map in the area where you live to see if you you can find your street and see how it is spelt. It may be spelt incorrectly on the map. You can correct an incorrect spelling. See the manual for map corrections.

Newer streets may not be included on your current map. You may have to wait for an update or you can buy an update or you can use the map corrections to add your street. See the manual.
