Tom Tom Go 720 Map not shpwing speed limits

My Tom Tom Go 720 doesn't show the speed limits and the maps are not as up to date as a friend that has the same one...it says that the map is 7 quarters old yet I just purchased it.

Is there any way to get the latest map without paying?

If you only just bought it NEW then you should use your "latest map" guarantee that comes with tom toms.

Showing speed options is set from the preferences and safety option

Update tom tom go 720 for free


You may be able to get "free" map updates from (illegal) underground sources. But that's not recommended.
Yes, you're right, you can simply get a new TomTom GPS and get the latest map(s) for it. Consider getting a TomTom with lifetime maps ....and you won't have to pay for any map updates.

Tom.tom does not warn you the speed limit


Maybe you've forgot to set up this option...
In SETTINGS > STATUS BAR PREFERENCES at the SPEED (that shows your actual speed) you have to have displayed the SPEED LIMIT also. If this last one doesn't appear it means it is not available for the road you are on.
Check if your map(s) are updated and your software too.

Just purchased TomTom XXL states that this device contains newest maps. Unfortunately it is not so. For example a roundabout in the vicinity of Empuriabrava, Spain, which exists more than three years is...


I Hate to tell you this but i have said this before and posted this before for people. Newest maps available mean just that. The problem is in the company that goes out and actually maps these roads, passages and speed limits.Tom Tom does NOT go out and map these roads and places, they buy the maps from another company (here in north America it is either Tele-Atlas or maybe Nav_tech, think there might be one other one) that company is responsible for map updates and other things, all TOM TOM does is put there version of How do i get from here to here on it and ship it out using the most recent maps that are available from whom ever they purchase the actual maps from.Hope this helps.

I need help on changing to the us My tom tom is on a different country


You will need to Purchase and load required US MAP(s) via 'TOM TOM HOME'.
When the new MAPs are registred to your device, you can then use the 'Change preference' -> manage Maps -> Switch Map -> then select the appropriate 'registred' US MAP.

Please note: always backup your GPS via 'Tom Tom Home' backup utilities first!
If you have limited storage, you may need to delete your existing map(s), that were previously back-up, before loading the US Maps

Wrong speed limit show


For posted speed limits, street names, etc, corrections can be made using the map corrections tab. For correcting a home address, I do not know. In fact, I have the same problem, i.e., an incorrect or unrecognized home address was enterred that I need to correct.

Restarts unexpectedly and slow to start


The TomTom 520 and 720 are the same unit. the differance is the maps. The 520 has maps of the US and the 720 has maps of Europe. Download the free clearflash utility from TomTom and run it a couple of times. This should clear up your problem. Sometimes the mapset config in the map gets full and it has to be cleared.
