Re: No address option in where to Menu

I find the zipcode quit useless becaus you can only enter the first 4 numbers (netherlands) so you also have to lookup the street. you can get the new release best with the webupdate:

I was given my late father's Navman F20 when he died in November... i have reset all the details but it keeps telling me that my home address is in a village 4 miles away? it does not recognise my...

I definately wouldn't toss it out yet. Most GPS' are pretty solid and last for years. Sometimes they just need an update...or a jumpstart! Here are a couple of things to try:
1) Try the following reset options. From the menu on the device, go to: Preferences --> System --> Reset --> Delete Preferences. Preferences --> System --> Reset --> Delete Favourites . Preferences --> System --> Reset --> Delete Recent Addresses. Preferences --> System --> Reset --> Factory Reset. This option restores ALL settings to factory defaults.
If that doesn't work, then perform this step: Preferences --> System --> Reset --> GPS Reset.
After you complete the steps above, then take it outside to allow it time to 'find itself' (this may take 3-5 minutes), and see if the position becomes accurate again.
Hope this helps! Cheers!

How do you enter an address into the favorites ?


follow the steps below:

  1. Click "Where To?" on the touchscreen.
  2. Select "Address."
  3. Enter the address on the screen using the on-screen keyboard. As you type, it will narrow the options down for you until you see the correct one. Select the address by tapping it with your finger.
  4. The next screen will show the address entered and have a big green "Go!" button. At the bottom, select "save." You can now access this address in the "Favorites" section of the menu.
Good luck.

Dont know how you enter address as well as postcode

if you select enter city location instead of post code it will give you that option. you can leave some fields without putting anything in them to get the the street option just by selecting next or done on the screen that asked you for the city for example on the city entry option enter noting then it will give you the option for the street and number option.

How do I input an address to get the directions

Touch the MAIN MENU in the top let corner.
Touch the ADDRESS option.
Touch the CHOOSE option.
Enter the name of a State or Province and touch DONE.

Use the keyboard to enter a City or Zip. Once the unit has determined the city, it will prompt you to enter an address. The unit will sometimes provide a list with more than one address that closely resembles the one you entered.
Scroll through the list of addresses provided by the unit and make your selection. When an address is selected, a dialog box will appear with three choices: Add to Addressbook, Find on Map and Go To.

The ADD TO ADDRESS BOOK will add the address to your list of contacts in the Address Book.
FIND ON MAP will show you that location on the map screen.
GO TO will start navigating you to the location and begin giving turn by turn instructions.

Changing home address

  • Tap the screen to bring up the menu
  • Tap the 'Change preferences' icon
  • Tap the arrow to the right to the 'Change home location' icon (looks like a house with a spanner)
  • Choose the best option to identify your address (postcode, address, recent destination, etc)

We have a problem putting in names and addresses.

All tomtoms are more or less the same. You tap the screen to make selections.
Switch on , let it boot up / Tap the screen / Then tap " Navigate to" / then tap "address" / Then tap either "City centre" or " Street and House Number , or Postcode " ( you select one of these by tapping screen ) . Lets say you just tapped "Postcode" . A keypad will appear on the screen for you to enter a postcode. NOW, enter the postcode ... as you enter the postcode , streetnames will appear and you can either continue to enter the postcode OR you can choose one of the street names that appear. Once you have done this , the tomtom will ask you to select a "house number" . if you don't know the number then just 'try' selecting number 1 . Once you have done this , select "Done" and the tomtom will switch for that screen to the "route calculation screen" . if you now tap the screen once more your tomtom will start giving you direction both visual and audible , to your destination . ( you must begin to move before it will start ) . ....................... Once you have completed the journey , you can now cancel the navigation by once again tapping the screen , then use the "right arrow icon" to move through the menue screens. When you see an icon with a RED CROSS through it , and underneath it says " clear route" , select that by tapping and the route / navigation will be cleared. ... Good luck , hope this helps.
