I have a Tom Tom XL IQ Route/XL Classic which is 1 month old. When I switched it on it came up with a blue screen , picture of Tom Tom in left top corner and on the right a white cross flashing on a red...


the problem it has is the software seems to either have a problem or the mapping itself is the problem, if you bought the device brand new from a shop like halfords, then you will have the TomTom 1 year warranty, but you need your reciept for it to be authorised.
if you have done a back up of the device previously on tom tom home then you can format it and it may back up ok.

alternatively go into any Halfords or other store and speak to the specialists and they'll give you any info they can give.

Tom tom is asking for map, i have errase current map on the Tom Tom xl 340s. how to i restore original settings


Download TomTom Home. Follow th link below for this purpose.
http://us.support.tomtom.com/cgi-bin/tomtom_us.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=5122&p_created=1150044449&p_sid=7XHxWOZj&prod_lvl1=&prod_lvl2=&cat_lvl1=&p_accessibility=&p_redirect=&p_lva=&p_sp=cF9zcmNoPSZwX3NvcnRfYnk9JnBfZ3JpZHNvcnQ9JnBfcm93X2NudD0yNDIsMjQyJnBfcHJvZHM9JnBfY2F0cz0mcF9wdj0mcF9jdj0mcF9zZWFyY2hfdHlwZT1hbnN3ZXJzLnNlYXJjaF9mbmwmcF9wYWdlPTE*&p_li=&p_topview=1
Select your operating system (XP, Vista) on the link above.
Then click download. Once downloaded Install.
Once installation is complete, Reboot your computer.
Open tomtom home by clicking the icon on the taskbar.
Connect the USB cable to the GPS. Switch on the GPS. Connect the other end of the USB cable to the computer.
Wait for a few minutes for the GPS to go through the self check procedures.
You have a fair chance that a new map will download. Follow on screen instructions. If this does not work, Try clicking on tools (in the tomtom home software). Click on latest map guarantee.
If your free guaranteed map feature was expired, you may have to buy a new map unless you have a backup copy of the map. If you have one, just copy the map folder to the root directory on the GPS. You will see the GPS harddisk as you see a CD or DVD on your computer file manager.
If you do not have a backup, and if by chance a friend of yours have a TomTom, connect that device to a computer and copy just the map folder (It will be named USA_Canada_and_Mexico_p for example). It is pretty big folder with approximately 1.6 GB of data. Copy this folder to your GPS. This should fix your problem as a last resort.

What do i need to do when i hook up my tom tom for the first time and try to download the map. i dont want mine to crash like some other ones did when they tried to download. im getting a tomtom 340s in...


It is a good thing that TomTom more or less functions like a computer. Start with downloading the TomTom home from TomTom website.
Then follow the link below.
http://us.support.tomtom.com/cgi-bin/tomtom_us.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=7954&p_created=1194036534&p_sid=lhLt3NZj&prod_lvl1=&prod_lvl2=&cat_lvl1=&p_accessibility=0&p_redirect=&p_lva=&p_sp=cF9zcmNoPTEmcF9zb3J0X2J5PSZwX2dyaWRzb3J0PSZwX3Jvd19jbnQ9MTI2LDEyNiZwX3Byb2RzPSZwX2NhdHM9JnBfcHY9JnBfY3Y9JnBfcGFnZT0xJnBfc2VhcmNoX3RleHQ9bmV3IG1hcA**&p_li=&p_topview=1
Then comes the tricky part. If you are in US or Canada, you will see that the new map will not install properly. Reason? not enough space in your Tom Tom for 2 maps simultaneously.
Solution : Connect the GPS to computer via USB cable . copy every thing to a folder in your computer. Make a second copy as a precautionary method. Now go back to the GPS (drive) in the file manger. (delete the maps-USA-Canad-Mexico folder. This is an example, if you are from a different country find the map folder and delete it. ) You will see that you have freed approximately 1.6 GB space. Go back to TOMTOM home and use the latest map guarantee feature. This time around you will see that the map updates completes without failure.
Check it out by driving around through some roads you know.
Good luck

My tom tom wont turn on where is the reset bitton


look for a small hole on the outside case near the sd card reader. might need a paperclip or pin to poke the microswitch inside the hole. simply clicking the switch doesn't work, try holding it for 5 seconds then try to power up. Common problem with GPS devices, (my mio included) is after being plugged in for a long time, the battery life becomes nil and it relies upon the charger. Check tom to xl for further problem solving. google search TOM TOM XL won't power up.

I have a Tom Tom 340S XL and I cannot get it to speak the street names as advertised. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks,


You solved the problem for me. I switched to a "computer voice" and the Tom Tom began calling out the street names. As many times as I read the 340S manual I never saw the requirement to use only a computer voice to speak the street names. Your help is greatly appreciated. Thanks again.

TOm TOm XL 340s and it does not announce street names


hi, it wont announce street names if you have the human voice selected. you must use the computer generated voice du,b as it sounds, thats the way it is.

go tp the change voice option and select a computer generated voice and try again..it should prompt you that you have selected one or the other.

if this fails, let me know and i can give you something else to try

Are there any new update maps for my new 340 s Tom Tom


If you bought your TomTom brand new, the first time you installed the TomTom Home software, you may have received a message that a free map upgrade was available. If you did not receive that message, then either the unit is up to date, or it was not new.
You can check the version of map you're using by going to the TomTom Home software, and from the main menu, click the "More" button to get to page 2. From there, choose "Manage my ONE XL", and click on the "Items on Device" tab.
Click the "+" sign to the left of the word "Maps", then click the "More Info" link to discover the version of map you are using. The most current version (as of December 1, 2009) is 840.2568.
If that is not your version and you believe you're entitled to it, call TomTom technical support and state your case. Otherwise, if you want this version of map, you will need to purchase it.
When trying to load a new map onto your device, make sure you first run the backup routine (in TomTom Home) to back up the old map. After downloading a new map, but before it can be installed, you'll need to remove the old map, since there isn't enough room on the device to have both maps loaded simultaneously.
Hope this helps.

I bought the new maps from website, and can not install


If the software crashed whilst updating, you will find that if you try to restore from a complete backup when you switch on next time it will either say you cant use the map or will just freeze, fix re format both the internal memory and the memory card, then find where tom tom home had stored the files, then using windows copy the contents from the 2 folders back into the relitive internal and external card, you will then find that you will get the mesage that you cant use the map, this is because tom tom home doesent always put the map data into the correct folder, to fix this find the licence data and the map data that has been stored on the sd card instead of the internal memory and copy it into the internal memory, before switching off press the reset button, when you switch on you should find that you have a working tom tom
