Question about Tomtom ONE GPS Receiver

How can I locate my lost/stolen tomtom?

I've lost my tomtom, despite getting it just a couple of weeks ago. I sort of suspect my teenage son's "friend" who was around adn very interested in it but don't want to make any accusations...esp as it might equally be lurking somewhere here, out of sight. Given that it is a GPS, is there any way of identifying its current location? Its the end of may, i parked my car outside my girlfriends house (which is in a nice neighborhood in colchester ct) when i went to my car in the morning (6 hrs later) both my GPS and digital camera was gone from my car...idiots forgot my I WANT TO FIND THE **** THAT STOLE IT!! I JUST WANT IT BACK!! This was the last thing my father gave me before he passed and now im really mad about it. HELP HELP HELP!!! They didnt take the wire or the mount...idiots. ANYONE HAVE ANY IDEAS ON WHAT I CAN DO?????

Unfortunately no.
Tomtom is a receiver, there is no signal sending involved.

Outside taking the serial number from the box and kicking a suspects door in there is no real chance this is coming back..

all you can do is satisfy yourself that they were too dumb to be able to do much with it..

better luck for the future.

I received a Bushnell 5-day forecaster last year. It has worked perfectly until several weeks ago - it now shows 'network lost...try another location'. It started working a few days ago...and now it's back...

I have very briefly researched the device and find it isn't really a forecaster but a device that receives weather reports and sorts them but it isn't made clear how it accesses those Accuweather reports that are available by smartphone app or internet.
I speculate the device must either use any wireless local area network or it must access the mobile telephone network, which makes little sense as it is supposed to be a free service and mobile internet service providers usually wouldn't give anyone free access.

Perhaps the answer will be found in the device instruction manual.

If it is supposed to work through free access to the mobile telephone network, perhaps the cause is the service providers are flexing their muscles. There was some feeling a few years ago the Accuweather reports should be removed from the public domain and perhaps this is the beginning of a resurgence of that feeling.

I need someone from tom-tom to get in touch with me please concerning a missing tom-tom of mine. please help

you can contact tomtom HERE but if your tomtom was lost or stolen, they will not be able to help you locate it, because your tomtom is a receiver and not a transmitter.

if all gps would be able to transmit there location, there wouldnt be anymore gps thefts.

How do i locate my lost tomtom gps

If your meaning can you track the GPS, no you cannot track a GPS unless it has a tracker fitted, you cannot trace it if it has been stolen,
Ironically, they work in the opposite way to a tracker, it is a locater, not a tracker

How can I locate my lost/stolen tomtom?

First of all it is obivous that a tomtom has a unique satellite address to recieve information, or they really wouldn't work, right? Any search from anyones tomtom would change your destination, which is defintly not the case. A unique satallite address means the address could defintly be cloned and monitored for activity. Just as they do with computers and modems. I mean they were able to catch BTK, a serial killer, by tracing a floppy disk all the way back to the exact computer he used to make it for christ sake. Tomtom probable doesn't want you to really think about the possibilaties of tracking your GPS, as this would probably be a violation of our privacy and probably our rights. I really think they can, but why they want to waste their time with the thousands of calls everyday. They should get their heads out of their azz and make some goddam money. It is a freaking Global Positioning Satallite reciever, and it would be the stupidest thing that I've ever heard that Tomtom can't find the location of it, come on. It seems they prey off our ignorance and only care about making money.
