    hi , i'm reading your manual , setting your home location
    to set the home location , 1.) choose MENU > SET AS HOME , to set your current gps-determined location as your home location . OR , 2.) tap MENU > FAVORITES , and then choose "SET FAVORITE AS HOME" , in he select favorite to set as home screen , select a location listed , once you select and save a location as HOME , the menu button changes "SET AS HOME" to "GO HOME" . you can click the hyperlink i added and read this directly from your nextar Q4-04 manual , i'm going to speculate here that your map was set to show sacramento calf and was set to home and thats why when you turn gps on it shows that . post comment if ya need more help or if this does it . thanks .

Only shows us routes not canada


I fell foul of that the other way. I have Canada maps and lent it to a friend who was going to California.

You need a map that covers Canada and it is an extra cost. The USA is in two zones, or one map does both zones.

You need to buy the Canada maps and then put it on an SD card. The map costs $84

Everytime I plug in my Tomtom a Red X appears. I don't know if this is a problem or what I should do about it.


Hello Pat, Welcome to my page of expertize. Thank You so much for choosing me.

This is what you do. This is pretty easy fix.



If your navigation device displays a cross after you switch it on, it means that the TomTom application is not installed correctly.
Note: It is normal for the navigation device to show a cross while it is connected to the computer.

The solution depends on which TomTom software is used for updating. Check which software yournavigation device uses for getting updates.
Devices using MyTomTom for updates
For navigation devices that use MyTomTom, reset your device.
Devices using TomTom HOME for updates
For navigation devices that use TomTom HOME, you can solve this problem by installing the latest application on your navigation device.Here is also a link that will help you more. This will answer all your questions Mike

Sorry wrong Question.......I'm really frustrated right now. I have a TOMtom XL 30 Series that will now show nothing but a Big Red X when I plug it into my Truck.....HELP !!!!!


It is quite common tomtom bug.
Do: 1. backup restore or 2. copy all original SD files to your new formated SD card. Restart TomTom and see if it works.

Cannot get our new Tomtom GPS one 130 to show English in instruct


Connect your device with TomTom Home and access the memory (like if it was an external disk)
Create the following 2 files without ant extension in the root:

cleanflash
runclean

It will reset your devide to the original settings.
When starting it will ask you which language you want to use.

My gps saids i am always in new york even though iam in maryland never moves from new york


If it is constantly on a singloe map location and never cuts in to navigate thjen suspect that
1) the antenna is afunctional, disconnected, or not working to lock onto satellites.

2) The chip that locates and communicates with the satellites is dead.

If it always shows a particular location when started, but does navigate to where you ask it to take you, but always returns to the base location when tuened off and then on. The program in your home address or in SETUP program your location and time zone to have it always start in Maryland.

Garmin nui 360


Please tell me what the version of bluetooth firmware is showing up in your unit. You can access this by pressing the wrench symbol, then the gear symbol, then "about". The latest bluetooth version is v3.4. If it shows up as 0.0, then you need to reflash the bluetooth firmware.

One note: Everytime you update the bluetooth firmware, it erases your pairing information with your phone, so you will have to re-pair your phone with your Nuvi.

Best wishes,

Unlocking a Garmin etrex venture cx


The unit comes with a base map. You will need to purchase City Navigator software if you want more detailed maps which will show all roads. If the box contained a copy of the City Navigator and you threw away the code, you'll have to purchase another unlock code from Garmin.
