Did you try to reset the Tom Tom? Did you try to see if the unit is charging or fully charged (samll green light on the lower righthand corner should illuninate when charging)? I have had problems with the power connection at the base of the unit getting loose. Try taking it into the computer and getting a full charge if it is a charging problem. Not an expert but expereinced the same problem recently.

Gps will not announce street names, highway's, etc. Important note: it had been announcing this data since I bought the GPS in December but just recently stopped doing so.


You have to change the voice to a computer voice. Go to where you choose voices on the main menu Change preferences > Voice preferences > Change voice. Find a voice with the word "computer" in the name and select it. At that point you will be asked what you want to be announced. By the way, this is called "text to speech" in TomTom talk.

Will not properly display rural areas near Greenwood,Nova Scotia ,Canada postal code b0p1n0


If you have the most updated maps installed the only other option I can tell you to try is making sure that all your avoidances are selected properly. Usually by default your avoidances are set so they don't recognize things like rural roads, toll roads, dirt/farm roads for fastest directions and speed. Look into this and see if your adviodances are turned on. If so then turn them off and see if your roads are there. If it doesn't work then you will need to connect your garmin to the PC and run an update to see if you have the latest map update.

Hope this helps

Lost tomtom920t on airliner


As far as being able to tell if anyone is using your unit as a GPS receiver, no, there is no way to determine whether someone uses it. Unfortunately, if it was left behind, someone probably gave it away as a gift.
