SOURCE: i am not getting satalite signal on my tom tom xl

The most common problem to this is because the TomTom doesn't know it's current location.  It may be that you last used your device a long distance from where you currently are now.  I don't know how long you waited for the gps signal to acquire but it can take up to 10 minutes (even on military aircraft if they don't know current location).  
Power it up and press on the signal strength icon.  That will bring up your satellite tracking status.  If it don't look like it's doing anything, then your gps has probably malfunctioned.  If it looks like it's acquiring satellites, then give it a good amount of time (10-15 minutes) to see if it can find your location.  I recommend doing it outside of your vehicle with no satellite obstructions to make the process go faster.
Good Luck

I have a 720 but I suspect it will be the same or similar.
Tap the screen and then Change Preferences. Use the forward arrow to scroll to the relevant page (5 on mine) where you will find Set Units. Tap this and then change whatever units you wish.

SOURCE: I have a TOM TOM one XL GPS and it will not power

If you where having difficulty with the on/off button, it sounds like the microswitch under the plastic. Unless you can do micro soldering you can not fix this yourself. You should get a quote from tomtom.

HOW DO I GET MY TOM TOMXL TO SPEAK STREET NAMES ? FOR EXAMPLE, IT WILL SPEAK TURN LEFT 100 YARDS, BUT DOES NOT SPEAK STREET NAME


you need to select a computer voice. no gps can say street names while using a human voice.

tap the map screen, then preferences, then scroll to the 4th page where it says change voice and select a computer voice.

if you need more help, just reply to this post

Tom Tom XL shows me 200-300 yards from my actual


1- Signal strenght loss is a common problem, has to do with how often they refresh, whats on your dash and how good the line of sight is to the gps sattelites. Ironically the window mount that they give you can in some cases place the gps unit too far back from the window to get good clear reception.
2- You are out in the field because of the maps that you are using. Maps while mostly accurate are not exact and road changes that are made to sections of road may take years to show up in the map or might never show up. There are only two or three actual companies that do the gps survey work for the roads, and gps manufacturers like Tom Tom buy user rights to use these maps, so if a particular section of road has changed or been moved and nobody has been out to recalcute the changes then your gps will be off the mark.
Hope this information helps you out.

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

I have a Tomtom XL and lately its taken forever to find gps signal, i tried everything like resetting it which works for a bit but then has that problem again. Can someone help. thanks in advance


i work as a truck driver on a small fleet of 7 vehicles in the midlands UK

3 of us have Tom Toms, the others have medion, navman or garmin.

ALL the tom tom users have been experiencing GPS problems this week ( june 21 onwards ) whilst the rest of us have seen no change in GPS satelite availability.

In addition, a friend who uses a TOM TOM One XL in another part of the UK has also had same problems.

Its a TOM TOM problem generally it seems, and NOT your particular piece of kit.
