Question about Tomtom ONE GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Tomtom gets lost.

While driving the freeway, the cursor will veer off the freeway onto a side street. The unit will then try to plan a new route to get back on the free way. I reset the unit and when I turn it back I lose all the gps reciption.

Re: Tomtom gets lost.

I think that you just continued the wrong way. If you would follow the red line that is the way you should go. If you don't, then it will reset from where YOU went which was not the correct way to try to find you a new way to where you are going from where you have gone off on the wrong street. That has happened to me and it is only when I go the wrong way. I hope that helps..

Custom Content Issues on Fiat TomTom Blue&Me 2

It can be done but its not easy.
1. Borrow a tomtom off a friend that has an older version that connects upto tomtom HOME and not My Drive connect.
2.Make a copy of the contents of that device onto the desktop of your pc. (*create a folder and call it tomtom)
3. Now on the copy, your done with the borrowed unit. Open the map folder and add the 'car' images you want into the 'brand' folder. If it doesnt exist create one in the map folder naming it 'brand'
4. Now copy everything onto a SD card
5. Go onto tomtom website and download 'tomtom content transfer assistant' and install
6. Connect your newer device to the pc and run the connect assistant.
7. Plug in the sd card when asked (connect old device)

It will then copy start up, shut down images, brand folder over to the new unit.

This should allow what ever you put in the brand folder to be displayed.

Looking for good GPS

you need to change the routing setting
to instruct the GPS to use freeway(fastest) or local street(shortest). After that you should see GPS take you home as you want.

Lost our manual and can not find out how to get the tomtom to

To get your TomTom to speak street names, you will need to change the voice from a recorded voice to a computer voice. This can be done by:

  • Open the TomTom Home application
  • Click on the 'Add Traffic, Voices, Safety Cameras, etc.' button
  • Click on the 'Voices' button
  • Click on the 'Computer Voices' button
You can now select a voice to install on the device. 
Once you have installed a voice, change it by
  • Disconnect the TomTom from your computer
  • Turn on the TomTom
  • Touch the screen to bring up the menu
  • Touch 'Change Preferences'
  • Touch 'Voice Preferences'
  • Touch 'Change Voice'
  • Use the Left / Right arrows to navigate to the voice you just installed (Look for the word 'computer' in the upper right corner by the male/female option)
  • Touch the 'Select' button

Attempting to download Did not load automatically, so did as suggested and searched for Google asks if I want, etc. Do not have broadband. What do you...

have you tried setting your home address on the tomtom itself? I was having the same problem until I did that and then it downloaded. But it wont download by itself. You have to go into your "my computer" file and find the tomtom device and select installtomtomhome

Error planning rout

I had this problem. There was a problem with the direction of a one-way street leading to my destination. I corrected it and then I could plan the route. Check the streets leading to your destination against a real map and correct ht e directoin where necessary.
