How can I make my tomtom find local places I want?
I hope you have TomTom home installed on your computer. If you already have it, then it is pretty simple. Else, follow this procedure.
1. Connect the USB cable to the TomTom.
(connecting this end is difficult, so connect this end before you power on. In fact, this is the only part I hate about a TomTom)
2. Switch on the TomTom.
3. Turn your computer on.
Once the booting of the computer is finished,
4. Connect the other end of the USB cable to your computer (note Tom should be on at this point of time)
5. wait a few seconds.
6. You computer will first install Tom and then ask you whether you want to install TomTom home software.
say yes and complete installation. (just follow the screen prompts)
7. Create a login (register) and password.
If you have already have all this done earlier.
follow this procedure.
Connect tom to your computer
open TomTom home software.
wait till it update and settle to the Tomtom home home interface page. It will say manage your Tom the easy way here on top.
And you will see a few buttons with: Add map, Add traffic, voices, safety camera etc.
click on Add traffic, voices, safety camera button.
On the page that opens,
Click on Point of interest button.
On the next page that opens, you will see a list of POIs.
The easy way to find what you want here is to use the box next to search.
Type in Home depot and click on search.
You will see list of Home depot locations.
I guess you are looking for Canada home depot locations. If yes, scroll down to Home depot Canada.
select it and click add.
Wait till that information is added to your Tom.
once finished close Tom home software
and safely remove your Tom from computer.
Switch off Tom.
switch on Tom.
Search for Home depot in your POI list.
This time around you will see you get one that is closer to you provided the latitude / longitude information is there in the list you downloaded. Most chances are that it will be there.
