Tommy can you hear me? All the cars on our block were broke into and many things were taken but my Tomtom was the last straw.Is there some way of typing in a number and locating it or tracking it from my computer. That would also help locate alot of other stolen items and the little F#*%^$!s that stole it.

There is one thing you can do if you have the serial number of your device. You can find it on the device itself and on a sticker on the packaging of your device. If your device was registered to your TomTom account, you could try contacting TomTom support by phone and ask if they can give you the serial number when you provide them you're account data. Once you have the serial number you go to the police station and inform them your device was stolen. If you're lucky, one day the police will find the gagsters who stole your GPS, and if they find lots of stolen products, they will probably check the police computer to check if the serial numbers are reported as stolen.
sadly you can not track it because its a receiver and not a transmitter. i wouldn't give up though, i would check all local pawn shops and flea markets and even eBay...no doubt some bum has stolen it for some quick cash and probably sell it as fast as they can.
the fact its locked suggests its stolen and the seller should be reported to ebay however connect the device to ur pc and sync it the serial number should be blocked by tt if its stolen if not set ur own password via the menu on tt home via ur pc (u cant change passwords on the device alone it has to be done on the pc )
First thing to check is make sure your maps are up to date. Run your device through TomTom Home and make the proper updates. 1/2 a mile away seems too far of a distance to be off by. I've taken trips on my TomTom and even other brands for that matter, and it is not unusual to be slightly off or announce the arrival a few hundred feet too early. If it is navigating you to the wrong street, you need to update your maps. The maps are very reliable on my device so use that as a starting point.
If you are asking if there is a way to remove your home address from the unit remotely, unfortunately, no, there is no way to do this. I assume you have notified the police about the theft. They will be aware that there is a possibility that whomever stole it may go to your home, however, this rarely occurs. Most of the time when a unit is stolen, it is sold for a quick profit.
First of all it is obivous that a tomtom has a unique satellite address to recieve information, or they really wouldn't work, right? Any search from anyones tomtom would change your destination, which is defintly not the case. A unique satallite address means the address could defintly be cloned and monitored for activity. Just as they do with computers and modems. I mean they were able to catch BTK, a serial killer, by tracing a floppy disk all the way back to the exact computer he used to make it for christ sake. Tomtom probable doesn't want you to really think about the possibilaties of tracking your GPS, as this would probably be a violation of our privacy and probably our rights. I really think they can, but why they want to waste their time with the thousands of calls everyday. They should get their heads out of their azz and make some goddam money. It is a freaking Global Positioning Satallite reciever, and it would be the stupidest thing that I've ever heard that Tomtom can't find the location of it, come on. It seems they prey off our ignorance and only care about making money.
