Change it through your gps
where you set favourites or home
it obviously did'nt set your correct settings through the map
make sure home settings on system itself are correct such as country city etc

Map updates. The directions are often incorrect. Device voice and map show me I am at destination then changes to show it is actually a half mile or more down the road. Needs corrections!!!!!!!!! Thanks!


There ar frequent minor map corrections accessible through MapShare. You configure your GPS to accept these corrections. You can selected to accept ALL, or from TRUSTED sources, or ONLY corrections verified by TomTom.
Connect the unit to the computer and download the MapShare corrections. If your map is too old, maybe it is time to get the latest one.

If you have started using your unit not long ago (less than 30 days) you may have the right to a free update. TomTom offers the 30 day latest map guarantee.

Connect the unit to a computer where you installed the tomtom HOME application. Upon registration, HOME will proceed to update your GPS.

Turn on your TomTom and tap the screen until you see change preferences. Tap "change preferences", then tap the forward arrow until you see "set clock". If you don't see "set clock" you may have to tap "show more menu options".

My tom tom one xl won't turn on anymore but when I connect to the computer it turns on and shows a picture of a gps. still can't use it though. it is fully charged.


try hitting the reset button with a pin for about 15 seconds (this is located near the memory card slot) switch on to see if it boots up then install the latest updates from tomtom home, good luck

Wrong street numbers


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.
