This is an option that you UNTICK

On the regular display touch the map area once

Select the spanner / wrench icon once

now select Safety Preferences

Untick Hide most menu items
Suggest Driving Breaks (unless you are a trucker)
Show Safety Reminders

Press Done until you reach the Warn me which side of the road option and select Never.

Press Done until you reach Turn off Map display and select Never

Press Right arrow until you see Show Tips and also turn that off too.

You should now be good to go.

    Re-check the last step tomtoms sometimes put a cross through the option when you would expect them to use a tick of some sort.



    Caught me out a few times

Wehave a tom tom go 530 (refurbished). Its


Let's hope there's nothing wrong with your TomTom. Here's some information that may assist you with your Go 530.

Your TomTom GO must be outside to locate your current position. The first time you start your GO, it can take up to 5 minutes to find your current position.

If it takes longer than 5 minutes, make sure that you are in an open place without tall buildings or trees around you.

In the future, your position will be found much faster, normally within a few seconds.

Once your GO has located your current position, the Driving View is shown in full color and shows your position on the map.

Finding your position faster:

To find your position faster, use the home dock in combination with TomTom HOME on your computer. When connected to the Internet, TomTom HOME
automatically downloads information which helps your GO locate your position faster.

click here to download TomTom Home.

Note: Some vehicles have a heat reflective shield embedded in the windshield that may prevent TomTom GO from locating your current position. If this is a problem in your vehicle, use the TomTom External
Antenna Kit (available as an accessory).

If you found this information helpful, please give me a big thumbs up when you rate my answer. Thanks.

Go to change preferences
Then safety preferences and turn of safety reminders and suggest breaks (unless you are a truck driver in europe)
Also turn off the which side of the road warnings
Set it to never turn off map display
Make sure hide tips is set too !

These are all found under the preferences menus

5 MPH DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CAR AND TOMTOM GO 530


The TomTom is being tracked by upto 11 satellites, therefore the speed on your TomTom is correct. Generally a speedo in a car is around 5-10% inacurate.

Tom Tom XL worked fine and then after stopping for lunch could not find satelite signal the rest of the 200 mile drive.


Try going online at the Tom Tom site and updating the device (it's free). There's a new update each week that tells the Tom Tom where the satellites will be during the coming seven days. Admittedly, this only speeds up the process and not finding a signal for 200 miles is a stretch, but it's worth a try if you don't regularly update.
