Weird noise, picture, and nubers, what does it mean?

I was driving on the freeway, following TomTom's directions, and all of the suddent there was this loud repetetive bonging noise, kind of like a church bell, in the upper left hand corner there was a picture of a house, and below that it changed back and forth between the two numbers 200 and 250. What does this mean?

The only thing i can think of is that a proximity alarm is set for a point of interest. You will need to use the manual to switch off the alarm.

If it is a proximity alarm it will do it again at the same point on the road.

My TomTom XL arrived via Ebay with only the unit and car charger lead, no instructions or disc or lead for updates. Are these necessary and how do I acquire these please?

Hi gillian_duda
you do not need a disc but you do need a usb cable to update your tomtom...if you dont have one of these cables you can get them off ebay for under five dollars....see picture below

you can download the tomtom home program HERE just pick the operating system you are using on your computer. once you have downloaded the tomtom home application just follow the on screen directions.

you can download a copy of your manual HERE just scroll down the list till you find your XL, i would of given a direct link, but there are a few different XL models

When i type in destination, I get map view instead of arrow pointing direction and showing which way to turn ect.I've tried everything to get back to driving directions , follow the arrow in the direction...

depends on which TomTom Go you have (maps preloaded only go700 and go910 no memory card slot)

This is for Go910

Tap Change preferences in the Main Menu.

(When you first start using your TomTom ONE XL, not all the buttons will be shown in the menu. Many buttons and some more advanced features are hidden because you will not need these features very often.To see all of the buttons and features, tap "Show ALL menu options" button in the Preference menu.)

then Tap "Turn off map display" button to turn off the map. Instead of seeing your position on a map in the Driving View, you will only see information about the next instruction.

you can download all TomTom manual

go to tomtom website ----> support scroll down at the right hand side click Find downloads

hope this help

Flashing Cross and Re-formatting

Hi, I take it that what you mean by website is " The TomTom" website ?
Before formatting you should have backed up the files from your TomTom or you have a CD / DVD with the files on ( same files on that disk as were on your TomTom's hard drive ) . After formatting it should be a simple task to re-install the files back onto your TomTom but you might then have to re-authorise the maps using the number on the card that came with your TomTom ( looks similar to a credit card ) . It is also possible to download the files from TomTom website . You can do this using TomTom home as it does most of the work for you , or you can hunt around on the TomTom website and download each file required ( but you would need to know the file names ) direct to your PC . Once you have the files you can then upload them to your TomTom directly ( when connected to your PC , the tomtom will appear in "My Computer" as a USB drive ) so it's a simple matetr of dragging and dropping the files . Again , once you have all the files on your TomTom you will likely need to activate the maps again using the product code on the credit card thing that came with your TomTom. Good Luck.

TomTom frozen

My TomTom One is acting up. All of a suddent, it has a hard time finding a valid GPS signal. Then, it sometimes becomes frozen at the first screen when you turn it on. When I try to connect to the computer, the menu page comes up on the computer screen, but the unit does not respond to anything. This unit has operated smoothly until now and I have done nothing to change it. Any ideas?

Tomtom gets lost.

I think that you just continued the wrong way. If you would follow the red line that is the way you should go. If you don't, then it will reset from where YOU went which was not the correct way to try to find you a new way to where you are going from where you have gone off on the wrong street. That has happened to me and it is only when I go the wrong way. I hope that helps..
