I have a garmin gps72 but now i have move to other country first i was in india and now i am in saudi arabia when i put the coordinates its showing in many kilometers


You need to find what Map Datum your map is using, it should be printed in the margin or the title of the map. Then you need to set the Map Datum the same value in the GPS 72 (Main menu, Location Tab). Most modern maps and charts use WGS84 but I wouldn't know for Saudi Arabia.

No matter what address i input, it can find the location but when it start navigate, the map turns out a location in Kansas..i dnt know why is that..i input washington state address


You need to change the State. When you go to put in the address does it show the state as Kansas. If so press change state and change it to Washington.

Gps won,t move from last location


When you put in a new location how are you entering it? If you are using the "Where to?" menu then you will need to click on the "Map" button instead of GO when you find the point you are looking for, may it be an address or a Point of Interest. This will show the location on the map. If you want that to be your current location you must have the GPS turned off. Then on some units you will Have the option to set as your current location.

I hope this was some help.
Cheers

Home location keeps showing a different location. reloaded home address still showing a different location.


On the TomTom One, this is impossible unless you have several maps.
Each time you switch to another Map, the preferences such as Favorites and Home addresses only apply to that specific map.

Let me know if it helps or let me know exactly what you are doing to change and set your Home address.

(hint: Change preferences -> Change Home location ?)

Battery not charging and takes several minutes to locate maps also clock shows wrong time.


C310 is slow in finding maps. If the battery is not charging it may be time to change it. However this is not an easy job.

LG GPS LN730 keeps starting up in another city, how can I get it to start in the city I live in?


Impossible. There is no starting point preference for the LN730. But the minute you are out of your garage, it will sync with satellites and your current location will be put on the map. Even if you choose to go to anywhere before this, the directions will change and the route will update, so there is no need to put a "starting location" in it.

How do i change a preset destination


if it's not giving you an option to enter in the numbers for the address one of two things might be wrong. 1. the address is incorrect (probably not) 2. Assuming the address is correct, there is a good chance that the address is simply not in the map database. This can be caused because the location is relatively new. In this case, it's time to upgrade your maps.

Tomtom 100yds off


I have seen this when entering addresses with a letter in them such as 3N124. The address does not enter correctly you will get the wrong address and location. I am trying to find
out if the tomtom supports this address. So far I have been told, NO, by Tomtom support person, but have a hard time believing this since a Magellian accepts this and works. However I have seen a Magellian get my location wrong. I believe the map needs updating. Check the location by view route and zoom in on the location, does the address equal the location that is off if it does it is most likely the map is the problem. If the location equals the address entered maybe the sound is off, stop before entering your home and check the location vs your location on the map. Check you map year, also have someone else check with their gps, might help.

Wrong map


If you have the US CD the maps are on it. You will have to attach your Tomtom to a computer to change the maps.

Alternatively, you can download TomTom HOME from www.tomtom.com.

I Would like to update my Garminc330. I have a glitch in the map (tells me address doesnot exist, when I know it does)


Garmin puts out map updates on a regular basis. You must purchase these. The GPS comes loaded with maps that are current as of the date of production of the unit. It cannot "know" when new roads are paved and new subdivision are created without being "told" via map updates. The unit knows where it is in relation to the maps loaded on it by receiving signals from the GPS satellites in orbit. If things change, the maps must be changed in order for the unit to give you correct directions.
