When in truck mode my 465t will not warn of all weight station or low bridge locations. The truck height is set for 13'6", but there is no warning when lower bridge heights are encountered.


Have you tried gong to the Garmin web site an updating the software and the maps? If you have it updated it most likely does not know all the bridges and there heights and the weight station locations. Thanks for using fixya

Can I get German road and streets. Where? What cost?


The easiest way to get maps is through "TomTom Home" software that you should have installed in your computer. If you don't have it, install it from www.tomtom.com and start TomTom Home. Then plug the GPS docking station to a USB port on your computer and place your GPS on the docking station. Turn the GPS on. If you are asked if you want to connect your GPS to the computer, answer YES. After the GPS is recognized by TomTom Home, you'll get a set of icons on the window screen. One of them should be labeled "get maps". Click on it. Most of the time, only a few maps will be shown. To get access to all the maps you can buy, choose "ALL" from the drop down menu that says "Recommended". Map prices vary by region, but in the USA we can purchase a map that contains Germany and a handful of other adjacent countries for about $90 US dollars.

Plese, report back if you need further assistance.

NEED UPDATES


Yes, you can get SOME updates for free... indefinetely.

You will need the latest version of TomTom Home software, available for free from www.tomtom.com.

Install the software on your computer BEFORE connecting the TomTom GPC to the USB port of the computer.

The free updates you can get are:

1) "QuickFix" updates. This contains the global positions of GPS satellites, allowing the TomTom GPS to get a faster lock on the GPS satellites (the GPS will get a lock within 5-10 seconds of being turned on, instead of 2-5 minutes on some other GPS brands). It is suggested that you update the QuickFix at least once a week. If you don't do it often, the GPS will just take longer to find the GPS satellites, that's all.

2) Minor updates to your map(s), but only the ones submitted by other TomTom users.

3) Updates to POIs (Points of Interest), such as new stores, malls, gas stations, parking lots, etc.

Whole-map updates ARE NOT FREE

My Tom Tom Go 300 keeps coming up No Maps found. What can I do?


Either the map(s) in your GPS were deleted or you bought a unit without maps. Your only option is to purchase the maps that you need from TomTom. They cost about $70-$100 US dollars in the US. I do not know where you live or what maps you need, so I can't give you more information right now.

TOMTOM GO 710


Could be a loose contact at the connection between the wire and at the gps unit.

Think the green light must be on at the charger port and also on the gps unit.

This green light can be found near the power button on the gps unit.

Tomtom troubleshooting


My daughter had this problem and it actually turned out to be the cigarette lighter connection. The fuse needed changing and bingo all working well now! Check you have a green light on the charger cable going into your cigarette lighter - if you dont its probably the fuse.
