check the battery saving settings, looks like you got the screen to go into stand by after 30 seconds or so, if your not sure how to change it do a factory reset to default settings. This would delete home address and recent destinations. Update if it doesn't work
Simple solution would be to delete personal destinations, then change home address to a landmark (i.e. Nelson's Column Postcode for SatNav: SW1) and set thepassword to change this to a simple 0000 or 1234 ect...
Unfortunately a street number is now required after initial 3 post code digits- a huge and dissappointing step back from the older tom tom option of finding the destination based solely on the full postcode-not all destinations have a street number or the number may not be known (stupid Tom Tom designers).
The only solution I know of is to make up a number (Not always practical if destination is office block for example) or use the point on map option (not as acurate) or the latitude/longitude option which is only really usefull for rural destinations in the middle of no where. Tom Tom really need to produce a fix for this major oversight in the form of a software update.
If you don’t know what the 4 digit password is you will have to reset the unit. This will clear all saved information. Reset factory settings To show all menu options, tap Show ALL menu options. Reset factory settings Tap this button to restore the factory settings to your TomTom ONE XL. All your settings, including Favorites, your Home location, warnings for POIs and any Itineraries you have created, as well as recent destinations and recent calls and callers, will be deleted.
