How do I use coordinates? I entered map coordinates and it took us to the wrong place.

Some Tomtoms can use latitude and longitude coordinates. They refer, of course, to points on the map.
To use coordinates on some tomtoms you tap the Browse Map option. A general Map of the route is displayed. The screen has three buttons at the bottom
  1. Options
  2. Find
  3. an icon for the point on the map.
  4. Done
Tap the Options button: The Map detail Preferences appears, offering the choice to put a check mark in POI, Favorites, images. At the bottom of screen you have 3 buttons : POI, Advanced, Done.

Tap Advanced: In thsi screen you can put a checl mar on Names, Markers, and Coordinates.
Put a Check mark on Coordinates and press Done, Then Done again until you exit all those options.

Now your tomtom is configured to display coordinates. Be aware that GPS technology was created for military purposes and its civilian uses cannot be expected to offer pin point accuracy. It took an act of the US president to allow its use for civilian localization.

When you plan a route you can use longitude and latitude. Here is the icon you should like for.

I need to know how to set points of interest. i am a duck hunter and i need to find the pit blinds in the dark. so how do i set points of interest at each pit blind.

POI are created in Excel by going to the spot you want to share or be told you are approaching and taking coordinates separated by a comma (comma dlimited)
then saved with a name
This excel file is the converted to the file used by your TOMTOM with poi converter.

However i dont think this is what you want. as it does not guide you to the location but merely says what is in the location you are at.

Your GPS needs to be able to select Picture coordinates like the Altina A860 ( see Marbella Australia) once you take a pic of the location you save it and call it "Hide1.jpg) then when you want to return you select that pic and press GO and you are then given turn by turn instructions.

Also this is a road atlas you are using, Once again if you can make your own"Tracks on this model like the Altina you can walk or drive and it will create an offroad map You then take pics at each blind you want and it makes it part of the new map. At anytime you can select MYTracks and find your way in the dark turn by turn.

TomTom is not really the GPS to do what you want to achieve.
Check out the A860

How can I remove an unwanted marker on my XL

explain unwanted marker ?

If you mean the green splodge with a yellow line through it then that is the way-point / marker button if you press that whilst traveling it will put a marker in your POI. This can be useful if you drive past something you may want to visit later.
I have not seen any way to remove that if it is the one you mean.

I need commericial routes.

go to and look for POI (points of interest) download these and get your divice to flag them. There are loads to chose from. It is true that they are only good if up-to-daye but most people use their device daily. If you can join map-share there too, it will allow you to correct map errors along with other users.

Map directions

TomTom has merged with Tele Atlas so that's a no go on the NAVTEQ maps. Newly built roads may not immediately show up on your TomTom, but you can definitely try upgrading your maps and using the Map Share feature to keep your maps as up to date as possible

Churches are not loaded as POI's. on my ONE XL-S It usuall will not recognize any church a.k.a. place of worship, even if I enter the name. Please help!!

The Points of Interest (POI) database consists of two files:
An OV2 file, which contains the POI's information ov2.jpg A BMP logo of the POI (optional) bmp.jpg
Step 1: Download and unzip the POI file.

1. Download the POI zip file. Save the file on your computer by selecting “save” when prompted. Save the file in a place where you can easily find it again for step 3 of the installation (e.g. on your Desktop or in My Documents)
2. Unzip the POI file by right-clicking the file and selecting Extract All..
  • This will run the Extraction Wizard. Choose Next.
  • Click on Browse... and choose a location on your computer where you want to extract the files. Click Next.
  • Once the files have been extracted, choose Finish to view the files.

Step 2. Connect your TomTom to your PC

Connect your TomTom to your PC using the USB data cable or dock. When prompted if you want to connect to the computer, tap on YES.

Step 3. Copy the POI files from your PC

1. Go to the directory on the local hard drive of your PC where you extracted the files in Step 1.
2. Highlight these files then right-click them and choose Copy.


Step 4. Copy the POI files to your TomTom

1. Go to mycomputer.jpg.
2. Double-click your TomTom under Devices with Removable Storage tomtom.jpg.

3. Then go to the map directory, for example the folder na.jpg.

4. Righ-click and Paste the POI files into this folder.
5. Right-click your TomTom device and choose Eject before removing it from the USB cable or dock.

You can now use the new POI on your TomTom device via Navigate to... > Point of Interest.
