Question about Tomtom GO 700 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Where AM I???

When the GPS tells me where I am it is incorrect. It lists the streets that I am in between correctly, however lists the town totally off. I was in one town, and between 2 miles of staying in the town, it listed 3 towns that were at least 3 towns off in each directions.

How do i find a town center on a garmin nuvi 205 sold in france

Unlike TomTom satnavs Garmins don't have an option of setting the centre of a town. The only option is to enter a common street name, like "Main Street", and drive to there. If there's no "Main Street" in the town type any letter and press "done"so it will show you a list of streets to select from.

I have all the necessary streets and avenues for my town in my XL330S but still the device will not guide me correctly.

You mean your device "sees" you on another street, or it's just about the GPS sharp location (displayed on the street and not aside)?
First make sure your GPS device and your navigation gadget are PAIRED 9if the GPS is external...)
Try to reset your device and on a COLD START wait for a complete GPS fix (latitude, longitude, altitude, satellites, etc.). It takes about a minute and a half for a complete fix.

It guesses the street and i can't put in the correct one

The unit does not "guess" streets. It suggests possibilites based on the location in its database. If it is pulling up incorrect information, the city may be wrong. Try re-entering the address without entering the city. Instead, press "Search All." Then enter the rest of the address. Sometimes the address will be listed as being in a different/nearby town due to the ZIP code. Let me know if this helps.

How do i down load new info-

I'm assuming you have the right map installed.Make sure you type in the right city (town/village). Make sure you are spelling the street name correctly.

If your street has been there for more than a year then it may be a map error. Try browsing the map in the area where you live to see if you you can find your street and see how it is spelt. It may be spelt incorrectly on the map. You can correct an incorrect spelling. See the manual for map corrections.

Newer streets may not be included on your current map. You may have to wait for an update or you can buy an update or you can use the map corrections to add your street. See the manual.

Text to speech incorrect info

Yes, this is basically normal. This is not a shortcoming of the GPS per se, but of the maps that it's using and where on the map it has recorded that certain addresses are located.

The maps that the GPS systems don't (typically, to my knowledge) have every building on them, instead they just have numbers recorded every so often on the street and then the machine interpolates where a particular address ought to be based on known intersections. E.g., 150 Foo Street ought to somewhere around the middle of the 100 block of Foo St. on the "even" side of the street. So this is probably why it thinks your apartment is slightly further up the street than it is; when people build things, we often don't allocate exactly the same amount of frontage to each street number, hence the offsets.

I'm still pretty impressed with my Garmin and doubt I could find my way home without it. Good luck!

I have just purchased a Garmin GPS 255W and am learning to use it. I have studied the on-line manual, but cannot find the answer to my question. My question is, when a street will not show up does it...

I found the solution by trial and error. Thanks for your response, however, I am not interested in expert help at this time. Please remove me from your contact list. Regards, bckay2

Speaking the names of major streets

It will only tell you the names of the streets if you use the COMPUTER voice. The other voices will not announce street names. So go to your voice selection and pick the computer voice...either male or female.

Problem locating correct street

Are you sure the unit is looking in the correct City? Sometimes the city will be listed according to the ZIP code. For instance, you may type in one city and it may be listed as a neighboring city due to postal regulations. If you cannot find the correct street in the city you posted, hit the Back key. When you get back to City, hit Search All Cities. Then try the address again. It may pull up the correct address, just with a different city listed.
