Cannot set up the arrival alarm to a point

I've tried to set 0,001 miles arrival alarm and the 15 seconds arrival alarm. Then I navigated to a specific poin but upon arrival there was not a sign or a sound indicating the arrival.
Am I doing something wrong??
Thank you

If you set your arrival alarm to .001 you are trying to hit a very small circle, only 6' in diameter and the odds of actually reaching that point are incredibly low so it's not likely the alarm will go off. Try setting your arrival alarm to .100 just to see if the arrival alarm works better.

When you set alarm to 15 second arrival you should see and hear an alarm, however, the slower you are going, the smaller the arrival circle gets, which means its gets harder to hit the area that triggers the alarm. 15 seconds is the default setting and I have found that it works fine at normal cruising speeds. If you are traveling very slowly, try bumping the arrival time up in 30 second increments to see if you can get an alarm.

When the alarm does go off, it is a very faint double beep which is hard to hear over the sound of wind and engines. I don't remember exactly how the visual arrival message appears but it is also very subtle. It appears either as a change to the menu bar at the bottom of the screen, or as a message box on the screen that dissappears very quickly. When I use that model I frequently miss the arrival alerts.

I have forgotten my alarm code for my motorhome Sigma S30 The keypads still work but I need the code to reprogramme a more rememberable number


Here are some important informationabout Sigma S30. Programming a New PIN Code:
The standard PIN code can be changed following thesequence below:
i) Type in to the keypad **
ii) Type in to the keypad the "existing PIN code" then *
iii) Type in to the keypad 92 * "new PIN code" * "new PINcode" #
Programming Remote Keys to the System:
Remote keys can be added or removed to/from the systemfollowing the sequence below:
i) Type in to the keypad **
ii) Type in to the keypad the "existing PIN code" then *
iii) Type in to the keypad 91 * " the number of keys to beused" #
iv) Press the first remote key button until bleep sounds,release and press next key. Continue until all
keys have been taught to the system. Note the maximumnumber of keys is 4 and all keys required
to operate the system must be taught during this operation- any key not included will no longer
operate the system.
Full Programming, Diagnostics and Features
This section contains all the information that the dealersuse for programming and diagnosis of
the Sigma M30 alarm system, using the MK1 keypadprogrammer.. Programming can also be carried
out using a dealers CP1 programmer.
MK1 Keypad Programming Introduction
It is important the keypad buttons are not pressed tooquickly-
Each time a button is pressed the LED on the keypad willflash once as confirmation. The next button should
not be pressed before this confirmation.
It is important the keypad buttons are not pressed tooslowly-
When in programming mode, if a button is not pressed for aperiod of 10 seconds or more, the alarm will
automatically exit programming mode. This will be confirmedby repeated flashes from LED on the keypad.
You must wait until the LED stops flashing and then startagain.
All programming functions are entered after typing * andthen the programming PIN code. The programming
PIN code is 17856.
To enter the programming PIN code, the alarm system mustfirst be armed and then disarmed using a valid
remote key. (Or keypad using the PIN code)
* 17856 * must then be entered within 30 seconds ofdisarming the system. This is then followed by a 2
digit function code, then another * and then sometimesoptional parameters as shown in the following tables.
It is important to remember the * key is used to separatethe various parts of the code like this:
* programming PIN code * function code * parameter #. The# key is pressed at the end of all
sequences and is used like the "enter" key on a computer keyboard.

How to change language from Spanish back to English?




When you first switch on your device, you have to answer a few questions to set up the device. When these questions appear in the wrong language, it's best to soft-reset your device.

Devices which are reset by holding the On/Off button:
Press the On/Off button and keep holding it until you hear the TomTom start sound. This takes at least 15 seconds. Also keep holding down the On/Off button if your device switches off or shows the start-up screen.

Devices which are reset using a paper clip or pen:
Press the reset button using a paper clip or something similar for 15 seconds. Then press the On/Off button for at least 5 seconds.



To change the language on your navigation device, do the following:
  1. Tap the screen to bring up the Main menu.

  2. Tap Change preferences.

  3. Tap the arrow in the bottom right corner until you see the Change language button. Tap Change language.

  4. Tap on a language to select it. 1381_select_language_uk.gif

    Follow the instructions on the screen to confirm your language selection and choose a voice.

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.
