Yes, use the mini A to Standard USB cable to connect it to a USB port on computer. Leave it to charge for a few hours. This is how to do it on Windows based computer, as to Apple I know not about them. My hunch is that it should not make a difference, but I would not stake my neck on that.

If you are referring to Latitude and Longitude , yes. You can use those co-ordinates to navigate to a destination. This especially works fine in countries where the Avenue and street information is not available. Google maps can give you the latitude and longitude coordinates. You can fed those into the GPS and navigate. Please note, you will need the maps of the region involved. Click (Tap) on the main screen. Tap on: navigate to Tap on : arrow Tap on: Latitude longitude Enter latitude and longitude using keyboard, Latitude first and longitude next. Be careful while you do this and do not forget to enter the directions North, West etc.

Testimonial: "Thank you very much, it is very helpful. I will go out and try it now, to bad it's not in any printed form accompanying the unit."
Check Tomtom's site.
Connect your device to computer.
Open the device on your computer (for Vista, click on Computer, then whichever drive/usb port your tomtom is connected to. This will give you access to the actual tomtom's internal data, and not the tomtom home data that is on your computer.)
My issue is that I deleted my Temp files while my tomtom was initially installing. It was using Temp to install the data, and I got rid of it. When I tried to start up the tomtom, it said No Map Data was available.
I had to delete the USA/Canada/Mexico directory to delete the maps that it had partially installed.
Now I've gone to tomtom home and re-initialized the map-getting process, and it's going well. Taking a looong time, but going well.
This is for the Tomtom XXL 540-t (traffic for life)
I wish you luck!

First you need to reset the tom tom by holding down the power button for about 10 seconds, it will restart itself, from there it should get passed the tom tom logo.
If it does not do the job, then you need to connect your gps to a computer, then back up the files then you restore the files back on it after formating the gps.
