Question about Tomtom XL 330S GPS Receiver

Open Question

TomTom XL 330S - 1)install and 2)edit or delete favorites?

Just purchased the product (boy, there is something to be said for oversimplifying installation directions!)

1) In addition to the all-in-one unit, i came with a flat disk. What is that for, window or dash mount?

2) How do I remove the unit from the windshield? Is the "crank wheel" to be separated from the flat disk that has the rubber tabs on the sides, or does the whole thing pull off?

3) I have entered a favorite address but want to more descriptively name it, how do I do that? And how do I delete favorites?

    I totally agree. What a complete fiasco in terms of instructions. A few little pictures about how to mount a sophisticated piece of equipment are not adequate. The Tom Tom Web site offers no additional help. How about taking the time to make a decent manual, or at least give complete instructions on the Web!

SOURCE: No route found

I recently had the same problem for the first time after owning my GO510 for about a year. I was navigating to a place about 1 hr away in NJ. I setup destinations for my wife using google maps using lat/long. When I put it in the tomtom, it correctly identified the street. It started planning the route, finished processing and gave me the error message.

I tried:
entering Lat/Long
entering cross streets
picking a point using TomTom's map on the unit
reformatting my card
getting the latest software from TomTom Home
even using the GUI in TomTom home to plan route ( GUI is very slick )

Nothing helped the problem

I couldn't really get rid of stuff on the card to get more space because the included maps of US/Cananda take up most of the space. I was able to plan a trip to an address in MI over 10 hours away, so I don't think it was processing or memory that was the issue.

Work around.

I found a neat feature "Itenerary" which was on the TomTom home GUI but not on my TomTom??? maybe hidden by default. When I went to preferences on the unit I said show all options. Using the itenerary, I picked about 4 locations on route to where she needed to go. This was great because I determined what I thought was a better route anyway. I did this on the TomTom home interface and it was much easier than using the unit's touch screen. Personally I hate having written directions that don't match what Tomtom suggests. Each point was set as a "way point" and only the final location was a destination. I asked it to plan the route using the itenerary. It echoed back that the first stop would be my final destination. AND.... it was able to plan that route.

Of course. this doesn't help if you are in the middle of nowhere and need to just give a final destination, but with a little luck, you might be able to use the touchscreen and set a way point somewhere in the middle of where you are going and actually get to your final destation.

Good luck.

SOURCE: TOMTOM/how to delite address in favorite?

If you mean delete addresses in favorite then

tap 'Manage favourites' to delete any favourite locations that are no longer needed. You can also rename them, if you wish. Use Arrow-head up and Arrow-head down to scroll up and down the list and pick the one you want to change or delete.

and i am not sure which TomTom Go you have (maps preloaded only go700 and go910 no memory card slot), you can download manual

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

Cannot get my tomtom xl 330s reset not enough free space


If there's data (items) on your TomTom that you can remove/delete, like music, photo's, images, (useless/not needed) maps, favorites, etc. it will give you more "disk" space to work with.

You can back up the data (using the TomTom HOME application) before you remove the items from your device.

Can the tom tom xl 330s get a memory upgrade and if so how. Thanx


No, what you see is what you get, there is no slot for an SD card or any other form factor, the internal memory is also not upgradable.

Can't load Map update on TomTom XL 330S


You'll have to remove enough stuff to make room for the new map. I had the same problem which is how I found this site. Turns out, the new map is larger than the one that came on the unit. The 1 GB of available space is pretty much all used when you get the GPS. Just copy all the voices and POIs that you aren't planning on using to your computer in case you change your mind later (you can just download them again for free too). As for the voices, only one works for text-to-speech anyway and that would be Samantha though a male voice is available for download.

You'll need to clear just under 4 MB to make room for the new map, and that's if you haven't added anything. Having the drive/memory on this unit just larger than the map makes it very difficult to get much use out of TomTom's great add-ons.

Can you delete information on tom tom


Do you mean on a ONE XL, XLS, or XL 330S? Do you mean simple deletion of history, or actual files on the device?

For deleting history, you can go into the preferences menu and Reset the Device back to Factory Settings. Say that you're sure 2x and its all cleared.

For more advanced deletion of files...

If you have the USB cord, connect it to your computer. Download and install the TomTom HOME software and register your device. From there, you can access the contents of your device and download new data or delete old files.

What are you trying to delete?
