How to program a destination

I am about to go on a weekend trip to a rural area just NW of Williamsport, Pa.. I would like to be able to program my destination address into my TomTomOne GPS unit, but although it will allow me to put the address in, it won't retain the address as my destination! Instead, it simply goes back to my opening screen with my HOME address! How do I get it to save the destination address & then navigate to it?

Re: how to program a destination

In general, once you key in an address and then select a route, the name/route will be saved in "recent destinations." If you want to use that destination, just select it. If you want to add it to "Favorites", then select "Add Favorite" and all your recent destinations will appear. Select the one you want and rename it: E.g., instead of "220 W. Walnut St." rename it "Grandma's House" and it is set.

Re: how to program a destination

I presume you've tried tapping in navigate to recent destination.  It seems to automatically save after you've made a journey, but not sure if it will do it until you've actually been.

I've had a Magellan Maestro 3225 for about a year or so (bought new from Costco). Over the past several months, when I turn the unit on and program a destination, the unit still seems to think it is in the...

There are two batteries inside the unit. One is the main power and the other is a small coin cell usually a BR2032 worth maybe ~$1 When this small battery goes the unit gets somewhat senile and forgets where it is. So it has to download all of the sattelite data and figure it out which can take up to an hour. The small battery is used to keep the memory and setting alive.

Your problem is finding a shop to replace it or sending it into Magellan. If you go to Magellans website and call your local support number they can give you the cost for them to do it. They also have a refurishment program where you pay a set fee and they send you a new or refurbished unit.

Was just given a TomTom and car adappter to use on my trip from MI to MD. I've never used a GPS and no manual was included how to program it from start to final destination

The TomTom only needs for you to enter your destination address. Once that's in, you're ready to go. Along your route you can tap the center of the screen to find POINTS OF INTEREST such as FOOD, LODGING, etc...but will retain destination info 'til either cleared or changed to new destination.

To enter your destination, tap center of screen. There you choose house address, business address or city's center. If you choose street address screen opens to:keyboard. Type in destination State, ie; Maryland. Once you've typed state, hit DONE in bottom right corner. The screen then goes to CITY. Type in destination city then hit done again. Follow the same steps for STREET NAME & HOUSE #. Click DONE & CONTINUE as prompted. TomTom will then target your location and you're ready to hit the road. It will show you your distance and time (ETA). It will also show you the speed limit where you are and the actual speed you are going.

When you pull over for gas, food, lodging, shopping, sight-seeing or whatever, it will automatically account for this and will continuously update your coordinates to get you back to the highway/road you need to be on. And when you're ready to come back to MI all you have to do is hit the home icon and it will automatically map your trip back.(Home is - or should be - set to the home address of the owner of the GPS).

All-in-All it is user friendly and very simple to use.

If you need additional info, please don't hesitate to ask.

I hope this info was helpful to you. Good Luck!
Have a great trip and drive safely. :-)

Not coming up full post code on tom tom 930

Unfortunately a street number is now required after initial 3 post code digits- a huge and dissappointing step back from the older tom tom option of finding the destination based solely on the full postcode-not all destinations have a street number or the number may not be known (stupid Tom Tom designers).
The only solution I know of is to make up a number (Not always practical if destination is office block for example) or use the point on map option (not as acurate) or the latitude/longitude option which is only really usefull for rural destinations in the middle of no where. Tom Tom really need to produce a fix for this major oversight in the form of a software update.

I am trying to put in multiple destinations for the same trip. When I try to put in my second destination it keeps going back to my home site not my first destination. It starts the trip for my second...

The Nuvi you have does not support multiple destinations in a route. you can have 1 destination and 1 via point. So if you are going to a destination and you need to add a stop in the route, you can add the 2nd point to go to and then continue to the original destination.

When you are planning a new trip and you go to input your destination there is an option to use recent destinations. Choose that then delete all recent trips from there. Hope this helps.

Rural addresses - Township & Range roads

With the Garmin Mapsource program just type in the name of the road and search. It shows up, and it's not saskatoon but corman park, although near to saskatoon, it's actually in a different area. This also happens when cities grow and small rural area's become part of the bigger picture, it's stil located where it historically was...looking for places can be sort of tedious. If I need to go somewhere, If i can't find it I ask for coördinates...the other way of getting there...A friend of mine lives on kitely line near jasper in Ont. the GPS knows the place as Line 3...huh?
