I hope you have TomTom home installed on your computer. If you already have it, then it is pretty simple. Else, follow this procedure. 1. Connect the USB cable to the TomTom. (connecting this end is difficult, so connect this end before you power on. In fact, this is the only part I hate about a TomTom) 2. Switch on the TomTom. 3. Turn your computer on. Once the booting of the computer is finished, 4. Connect the other end of the USB cable to your computer (note Tom should be on at this point of time) 5. wait a few seconds. 6. You computer will first install Tom and then ask you whether you want to install TomTom home software. say yes and complete installation. (just follow the screen prompts) 7. Create a login (register) and password. If you have already have all this done earlier. follow this procedure. Connect tom to your computer open TomTom home software. wait till it update and settle to the Tomtom home home interface page. It will say manage your Tom the easy way here on top. And you will see a few buttons with: Add map, Add traffic, voices, safety camera etc. click on Add traffic, voices, safety camera button. On the page that opens, Click on Point of interest button. On the next page that opens, you will see a list of POIs. The easy way to find what you want here is to use the box next to search. Type in Home depot and click on search. You will see list of Home depot locations. I guess you are looking for Canada home depot locations. If yes, scroll down to Home depot Canada. select it and click add. Wait till that information is added to your Tom. once finished close Tom home software and safely remove your Tom from computer. Switch off Tom. switch on Tom. Search for Home depot in your POI list. This time around you will see you get one that is closer to you provided the latitude / longitude information is there in the list you downloaded. Most chances are that it will be there.

Where can I purchase Gift Cards?
You may purchase The Home Depot Gift Cards at your local store or online in our Gift Card Center. At this time, Gift Cards are only available for online purchase within the 48 contiguous United States. We do not ship Gift Cards to Alaska or Hawaii.

Additionally, American Express card members can redeem membership rewards for eGift Cards.

What is an eCard?A creation of American Express and the Home Depot. eCards are gift cards you get electronically. And, print out or email as a gift. They are valid for in-store purchases only.

What denominations are Gift Cards available in?
Plastic Gift Cards are available in any denomination between $5 and $5,000 throughyour local store and up to $500 online. eGift Cards are available through American Express membership rewards in denominations of $25, $50, $100 and 500.

Can lost Gift Cards be replaced?
Unfortunately, plastic Gift Cards are like cash; if lost, they cannot be replaced. If an eGift Card is lost, simply reprint a new eGift Card and the remaining balance will still apply.

Special Order Products

What is a special order product?
Special order products are products that are not stocked in The Home Depot stores, but are available by placing a special order directly with the manufacturer. This allows The Home Depot to "extend the aisles" and provide you with additional products for your convenience. There are thousands of items available through our in-store Special Order program. Our Special Order manufacturers are experts at producing and shipping the items that are not typically on the shelves of our stores. Special order products can take up to 6 weeks to be delivered to the store. Most special order products are delivered to the store for the customer to pick up. Some products can actually be delivered straight to your doorstep. In either case, all special orders must be paid for at the time the order is placed.


How are special orders placed at the store?
If you would like to shop for a special order item in your local Home Depot, ask any store associate to see if a particular item can be ordered through our Special Order program. The store associate will then check by viewing the in-store special order catalogs to see if your product is available. Once you've confirmed the product specifications with the store associate, they will begin to enter the product data and your contact information into the store's Special Services System. Once your order is entered and reviewed, all you have to do is pay for the order. We'll take care of the rest.

How long does it take for special order products to arrive?Once the payment is received, a special order can take anywhere from a few days to several weeks, depending on the specifics of your order. The "expected delivery date" is actually printed on your Special Services Customer Invoice. You should confirm the expected delivery date with your local store when placing the order to assure the delivery timeline meets your needs.

Can special order products be shipped to my home?
Most special order products are shipped to The Home Depot store where the order was placed, but many may also be shipped directly to your home. You should check with your local store when placing the order to confirm the delivery method.

Where can I check the status of my special order?
You may contact the store where the order was placed or access the status online at www.homedepot.com/orderstatus. In either case, have your Special Services Customer Invoice available.

Can I return or cancel a special order or custom-made product?
Yes, however there are a few conditions. Some special order returns are subject to a 15% restocking fee. Cancellations may also be subject to a 15% restocking fee, and most custom-made products cannot be returned or exchanged unless defective. Returns and cancellation must take place at The Home Depot store where the special order was originally purchased. See the Special Services Desk at your local store for more details.

Aren't special order products more expensive?
Not Necessarily. Just like the products you'll find stocked in our stores, Special Order products are available in a variety of price ranges to meet the needs of any customer. If you're unsure, ask an associate to help explain the features and benefits of a particular product.

Waiting for valid GPS signal


When was the last time you updated the QuickFix of your TomTom? It helps your GPS to find the satellites.
Please, do the following:
1) Install "TomTom Home" software in your computer from www.tomtom.com
2) Start TomTom Home in your computer
3) Plug in the GPS dock to your computer's USB port and place the GPS on the dock. The green light on the bottom right of the GPS should turn ON to indicate that the GPS is getting power from the dock and charging
4) Start your GPS while being in the dock. If the GPS asks "do you want to connect to computer" answer "YES"
5) The TomTom Home software will detect the GPS and check if there are any updates for it. Then you'll be offered updates to install. Some are free, some are not. Be sure you choose to update "QuickFix".

Please, report back if you need further assistance

Probably the last update was not applied correctly or it was corrupted.
Please, try this:
1) Place the GPS on the cradle connected to the computer and start TomTom Home.
2) Turn the GPS on and connect it to the computer.
3) Erase the downloaded software (using the "remove items" from the TomTom home software)
4) Choose "disconenct device" from the drop down menu of TomTom2_bing.gif Home
after the GPS powers down and restarts, press the RESET button on the button (keep it pressed for 7 seconds)
5) Repeat setps 1-2 from above. When TomTom Home detects your GPS, it will offer to update it. If it doesn't, choose "update device" from the TomTom Home buttons

Use the add/remove programs to UN-INSTALL

Then go get the new version but when it asks if you want to run / save / cancel

Select SAVE and save it on your hard drive in a place you know how to get to.

Run it from there.

Attempting to download tomtom.com/home. Did not load automatically, so did as suggested and searched for tomtom.com/home. Google asks if I want tomtom.mobile, etc. Do not have broadband. What do you...


have you tried setting your home address on the tomtom itself? I was having the same problem until I did that and then it downloaded. But it wont download by itself. You have to go into your "my computer" file and find the tomtom device and select installtomtomhome
