Which device are you using the tomtom on? a phone or a gps handheld? which ever you are using you must download the maps of your desired region and install on sd card for it to find your streets. your model AND REGION WILL HELP ME HELP YOU BETTER.
Yes, this is basically normal. This is not a
shortcoming of the GPS per se, but of the maps that it's using and
where on the map it has recorded that certain addresses are located.
The maps that the GPS systems don't (typically, to my knowledge) have
every building on them, instead they just have numbers recorded every
so often on the street and then the machine interpolates where a
particular address ought to be based on known intersections. E.g., 150
Foo Street ought to somewhere around the middle of the 100 block of Foo
St. on the "even" side of the street. So this is probably why it thinks
your apartment is slightly further up the street than it is; when
people build things, we often don't allocate exactly the same amount of
frontage to each street number, hence the offsets.
I'm still pretty impressed with my Garmin and doubt I could find my way home without it. Good luck!
It will only tell you the names of the streets if you use the COMPUTER voice. The other voices will not announce street names. So go to your voice selection and pick the computer voice...either male or female.
When you need to enter an address that is numerical such as the 52nd street, enter as normal until you reach the street name. At the bottom of the screen, you will see a button that says, "123." Press this button, then enter the number (52, in your case). Press done, and it should say something like, "52nd (Street, Ave, Etc.)" Press this button, and your address should show up. Please let me know if there is anything else I can do for you.
