How to use tomtom properly

Make sure it is charged and when you let it run, make sure you can see the sky. The receiver in the TomTom should have direct contact with at least 5 or 6 satellites. When you are in buildings, or to close to high buildings, it could be the TomTon will notice.
Give it about 2 minutes to find its location, when you switch it on in a place where you did not switch it of. It needs more time to find and calculate where it is when you brought is somewhere else after switching off.

Can I update the map.

Garmin's policy for most of its nuvi GPS units is to allow you one free map upgrade. For example, I bought a Nuvi 755T in December and their policy said:
The n?Maps Guarantee entitles you to 1 or more free map updates within 60 days of Dec 06, 2010.
Some Nuvi models come with lifetime free map upgrades, these models have "LM" or "LMT" at the end of their model number.

Gps will not announce street names, highway's, etc. Important note: it had been announcing this data since I bought the GPS in December but just recently stopped doing so.

You have to change the voice to a computer voice. Go to where you choose voices on the main menu Change preferences > Voice preferences > Change voice. Find a voice with the word "computer" in the name and select it. At that point you will be asked what you want to be announced. By the way, this is called "text to speech" in TomTom talk.

Will not properly display rural areas near Greenwood,Nova Scotia ,Canada postal code b0p1n0

If you have the most updated maps installed the only other option I can tell you to try is making sure that all your avoidances are selected properly. Usually by default your avoidances are set so they don't recognize things like rural roads, toll roads, dirt/farm roads for fastest directions and speed. Look into this and see if your adviodances are turned on. If so then turn them off and see if your roads are there. If it doesn't work then you will need to connect your garmin to the PC and run an update to see if you have the latest map update.

Hope this helps

I bought a garmin Streetpilot C340 in December 2007. It has worked fine until today. I turned it on and then it shut off and I can't get it to come back on. Any suggestions would be helpful...

I had the same problem with my tomtom 510. I had to look real close but I finally found the tiny reset hole and pressed it with a paper clip and Wah-Lah!
