Make sure you are outside with a good bunch of satellite and it should work.

If not go to the compass page and restore defaults.

Calibrate your compass if you have one,

I get a picture of a robber with a swag bag with a cross over it then the device switches off what is this?

It's just a reminder that you put your TomTom device away ... like out of sight ... so that thieves don't get an opportunity to break into your vehicle to steal your TomTom.
You may change the option (to not display this screen image when you shut off your TomTom) using the "Change Preference" menu.

What does page mean on the menu? I cannot get the master clock to set to the proper time and syncronize with the building clocks.

The term "Page" in the menu of many devices - not just GPS units is used to indicated that there are additional settings or options. They couldn't all be shown in the "main setup" page, so they are place on additional pages. Pressing "next", "more", or even "page" (or similar) will usually advance the display to present the next page(s) of options.

My Garmin is telling me to get map updates. I do not know how to do this. I have gone to the web sight and there is so many sales places that I don't know witch one to use. Can you help me to do this?...

You can purchase map updates on CD at your local GPS retailer. If you do not want to do this, go to Go to the tab at the top of the site that says "Products". It will drop a menu. Click on, "On the Road". On the next page, click, "Automotive." Since the Nuvi 250W is discontinued, click that on the left side of the page. Then scroll to the Nuvi 250W and click it. Click the "Map" tab and then click on "View map updates for this product." Then click on the appropriate update.

I would like to just use my tomtom just to see the road names

Under the change preferences general menu, use the right arrow to go to the 4th page (4/8) and tap the Street Name preferences. Then put a check mark in the boxes Show Street names, Show next Street name, and Show current name on map.
Press Done, twice.
As some menu options may be hidden, the Street name preferences option may be on some other page..

The Device does not say if it is charging

It usually needs to be left for a while until it start recharging, a few minutes or so. If this does not solve anything then it would be best for You to bring it back for servicing.
