Question about Tomtom ONE GPS Receiver

No route found

I just got a TomTom One - 3rd ed., and I put a new favorite in by clicking on "Add Favorite" and then "My Location" and then entering a name for the favorite. When I go to navigate to that favorite, it says, "No route found." I need to be able to put a point on the map when I am there and then route to it again later. Any solutions?

Re: No route found

I recently had the same problem for the first time after owning my GO510 for about a year. I was navigating to a place about 1 hr away in NJ. I setup destinations for my wife using google maps using lat/long. When I put it in the tomtom, it correctly identified the street. It started planning the route, finished processing and gave me the error message.

I tried:
entering Lat/Long
entering cross streets
picking a point using TomTom's map on the unit
reformatting my card
getting the latest software from TomTom Home
even using the GUI in TomTom home to plan route ( GUI is very slick )

Nothing helped the problem

I couldn't really get rid of stuff on the card to get more space because the included maps of US/Cananda take up most of the space. I was able to plan a trip to an address in MI over 10 hours away, so I don't think it was processing or memory that was the issue.

Work around.

I found a neat feature "Itenerary" which was on the TomTom home GUI but not on my TomTom??? maybe hidden by default. When I went to preferences on the unit I said show all options. Using the itenerary, I picked about 4 locations on route to where she needed to go. This was great because I determined what I thought was a better route anyway. I did this on the TomTom home interface and it was much easier than using the unit's touch screen. Personally I hate having written directions that don't match what Tomtom suggests. Each point was set as a "way point" and only the final location was a destination. I asked it to plan the route using the itenerary. It echoed back that the first stop would be my final destination. AND.... it was able to plan that route.

Of course. this doesn't help if you are in the middle of nowhere and need to just give a final destination, but with a little luck, you might be able to use the touchscreen and set a way point somewhere in the middle of where you are going and actually get to your final destation.

Good luck.

The Favourites icon wasn't highlighted when I turned the TomTom on. Eventually by a quirk of fate it came on but I had lost all the data that I had installed (I have a TomTom Go 730)

You have two icons related to Favorites. Add to favorites and Manage favorites. If you did not add a favorite there is nothing to manage. That is why the Manage Favorite icon was greyed.

I am sorry you lost your data, I cannot help you to recover it. Hopefully it is replaceable. Every new gadget needs to be mastred before it can be used efficiently. The best sources of informations are the reading of the manual and playing with the unit.

Depending on the operating system of your TomTom you should be able to tap the screen then tap the forward arrow until you see "add favorite". Tap "add favorite" then tap "address", then tap "street and house number". Type in the city. This will bring up a screen with several cities on it.

Can i do a direct search by entering the name of something. for example the name of a naval base.

You can do this. What you need to do is choose Navigate then POI. In here there is a Search button that will allow you to search the address. Just as a warning: It rarely works. If this is a place you go to often, you can add it as a Favorite. Just go into Add Favorites and scroll until you see My Location. Then set it and name it. You will have it from then on.

When entering my house number (5 digit) it says "nomatches found.

not all locations are in TomTom maps this is not uncommon if you live in a new construction area that is newer than about 3 yrs old you can make a favorite location by turning on TomTom and navigating through the menu and mark the location the best way to do this would be to go into the street just infront of your driveway or parking area so you can use this favorite for routing info

GPS Location as a Favorite

Maybe the location is off road, and therefore TT cna't use it directly.. Use Google maps or similar to find the nearest road and coordinates for that road...
