TIME IS AN HOUR OFF

I live in Dallas Tx which is central time but my Tom Tom One 3rd edition reads an hour behind which would be mountain time ... instead of being 3 pm it reads 2 pm .. I have the latest updates but the time does not change and I cannot see how to reset the time or change it. Help! I assume this is done thru satilite ... so why is it wrong???

If you have a picture of your current or last position Tap on the middle of the screen.

Then

In that main menu tap on change preference

Then

You will see a blue arrow pointing right.
Keep pressing it until you see an icon named set clock and change the time there, if you see a sync button do not press it since it may sync with a satellite 1hour infornt or behind.

Thanks,
Pabz

Should be 4 buttons, 2 on left and 2 on right. Press bottom left 3 times and hour offset digit will be displayed. Press and hold top left until hour offset digit starts to flash. Press either top or bottom right to adjust offset hour to correspond with your time zone. Eastern -5, central -6, mountain -7, pacific -8. These are negative numbers, not positive. Then press top left button once, then press bottom left button to return to time display.

How do I set the time zone? It run out of battery so when I changed it, the time zone is pacific and I need to change it to mountain time.


To change the time zone, open the control compartment cover on the bottom of the clock. Locate the "Time Zone" switch and set it to the appropriate time zone for your area. Six time zones are programmed into your clock, "A" for Atlantic, "E" for Eastern, "C" for Central, "M" for Mountain, "P" for Pacific and "H" for Hawaiian. Once you've chosen the correct time zone for your Brookstone digital desk clock, you must select whether you want the clock to operate using the 12-hour or 24-hour format. The clock is set to the 12-hour format by default. If you'd like to change the setting to the 24-hour format, locate the "Time Format" switch on the bottom of the clock and flip it to "24-hour".
You can also decide whether to turn your clock's automatic Daylight Savings Time feature on or off. If you turn the feature on, your clock will automatically move forward by one hour at 2:00 a.m. on the first Sunday in March and fall back by one hour at 2:00 a.m. on the first Sunday in November. To choose your preference, locate the "DST" switch on the bottom of the clock and flip it to "Autoicon1.png" or "Off".

    mcdevito75 here, You re-set the time in a different time zone the same way as you do for the time zone your in now. The different time zones in the USA ru from 1 to 3 hours before the time in the Eastern part of the USA, example, Eastern time 3 PM, then going West, you have Central time 1 hour before, then Mountain time, 2 hours before , then Pacific time 3 hours before eastern time.

    Remaining time on a trip is always way off on my tom tom 1


    GPS units are rather conservative in their time of travel estimates, allowing for driving equal or less to actual speed limit. This can end up giving you an extra hour or two. Mapquest is the same way if you used it pre-gps. Tom-Tom now has IQ Routes Editions that will analyze actual travel time of routes by you and other drivers, take into account time of day and conditions, and give you more accurate driving times.

    Tom tom one 3rd ed only turn on one time now it will not turn on


    Hello, Unplug your Tomtom device, batteries should be fully charged. The tricky thing to Tomtom devices is the ROM put into the device. It needs to be reset once in awhile. The soft reset is like formatting a hard drive but leaving the system files alone. At the bottom of the device, there is a reset button. You'll need to use the end of a paperclip to reset the unit. After it's reset, reinstall the Tomtom application only by using the Tomtom Home application. Let it reset itself and come back to the original screen, then go to menu and set your preferences. Also if it's connected to Tomtom home and if you backed up your data to your computer, reinstall your maps. The only time your Tomtom device gets bogged down and won't finish a reinstall is when all 1 GB of memory is used up. Hope this helps.
