Are you sure that you have set the latitude and longitude units correctly? Under Preferences go to Set Units, press done until you come to latitudes and longitudes. You have three choices, Degrees in decimal form, Minutes, or Minutes and Seconds. Printed maps might use any of these forms of latitude and longitude. Avation maps are usually different than ground maps. Hiking maps also use either of the three forms.

TomTom Home must have corrupted the TomTom's operating system. That is what that symbol means. Contact TomTom support and tell them what model you have and they will walk you through getting the correct version installed.

Go into your device and pull up the setup section. There should be a selection that needs to be checked called WAAS. When that is selected your accuracy should be +- 3 meters if I remember correctly. At any rate it will be much more accurate.

In the Preferences area tap the Set Units icon on the fourth screen. Run
through the options until you get to the "How should Lat and Long be
displayed" and set Seconds (d,m,s)
Then when tapping lat/long while browsing the map or navigating you enter the lat first as S 22 (Degree symbol) 06' 20 and repeat for Long, E 149 (Deg Symbol) 31' 35 and it will work. The letters and symbols are available on the on screen keyboard that TomTom provides.
Hope this helps; keep us updated.
