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.

I have a Tom Tom GPS and all of a sudden it says searching for satellite signal but never picks one up. Any suggestions?


To pinpoint your location, you need to get signals from at least 4 satellites. If you receive signals from less than 4 satellites or the signals are not strong enough, the Driving View stays grey and one of the following messages is shown in the bottom right corner of the Driving View:
  • Waiting for a valid GPS signal…
  • The GPS signal was lost … sec ago
Note: In previous versions of the TomTom application the message may vary.

If you see any of these messages, try the following:

Finding a GPS signal
In the following cases it can take up to 5 minutes to find your current position:
  • You use your TomTom device for the first time.
  • You haven't used your TomTom device for a longer time.
  • Your TomTom device has been relocated without using it (e.g. after travelling by plane or train).
If it takes longer than 5 minutes, make sure that you are in an open place without tall buildings or trees around you.
Once your TomTom device has located your current position, the Driving View is shown in full colour and shows your position on the map.
Tip: Most TomTom devices can use QuickGPSfix™ to locate your current position faster.

Clear View
Your TomTom device must be outdoors to locate your current position.
Try repositioning your device in your car; ideally, try to position it at the lowest possible point directly on the windscreen.
Some vehicles have a heat reflective shield embedded in the windscreen, which may prevent your device from locating your current position. If this is the case in your vehicle, use the TomTom External Antenna Kit (available as an accessory).
Tip: As a reference, place your device outside your parked car to see if it can find your current position.

Make sure battery is fully charged before use

Reset your device

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 GO700


Hi there

This happens because files on your card are corrupted after an unsuccessful download.
If you have a card backup at hand, put the card into a computer, format it , and restore backup.
After that the TOMTOM will restart working normally.

If you did not make a copy or backup of the original card, or you cannot reach the computer hosting the last backup.Then follow the procedure below to restore your data :

1. Uninstall the application



2. Reinstall the application


attention_25.gif We highly recommend backing up your device before continuing. questionmark_25.gif
This will preserve any maps and voices you may have purchased.
1. Connect your device to your computer.
2. Go to Computer (Vista), My Computer (XP) or your Desktop (Mac).
3. Double-click the TomTom disk drive to open your TomTom.
4. Make sure that hidden folders and files are shown. To do this:
  • Vista: Go to Organize > Folder and Search Options, click on the View tab and select the option Show hidden files and folders.
2053_01.gif
  • XP: Tools > Folder Options..., click on the View tab and select the option Show hidden files and folders.
2053_02.gif
  • Mac: With the exception of some system files, your Mac should already show all hidden files and folders on the TomTom drive.
5. Identify the map folders on the TomTom. These are named for countries or regions such as USA_and_Canada, North_America or any other country or geographical region.
6. Delete all files EXCEPT these map folder(s) and the folder titled ASR, if it exists (the ASR folder will not appear on every device).
7. Properly disconnect the TomTom from the computer and exit TomTom HOME, if it is open.
  • Vista/XP: Right-click the TomTom drive and choose Eject.
  • Mac: Drag the TomTom drive to your Trash.
8. When the TomTom boots you should see a screen with the flashing X.
Proceed to reinstall the application (below):

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..
