Tomtom520 had a new battery fitted now can only get 3 parts of zip code


The folder 'ZIP' has been deleted from your tomtom unit.
If you have a back up simply copy and paste it back, if you have made a back up using tomtom home look in, my documents/tomtom/home/backup. This is the default location for tomtom home. If you cant find it anywhere, give me your email address and i'll send it to you

Register my tomtom


To update your unit you must create an account by supplying a valid email address. I suppose this is akin to a registration.
To effect that you install the Tomtom Home software on your computer. Then you connect the unit to the computer. When it asks you if you want to connect to the computer, tap Yes and the HOME software will open allowing you to update maps etc. You will be asked to create an account.

I live in rural Claremore Oklahoma 45 miles from Tulsa. Whenever I type in my Claremore address My unit locks up and I have to do a warm reboot. My address is 14145 S. 4220 Rd. Claremmore, Oklahoma. What...


If you are far enough out in the middle of nowhere that your area did not get mapped, then rather than entering your address in, just touch your current location when you are home, and enter it as a waypoint or "favorite". This should allow you to direct yourself back to your home from anywhere you do have maps for.

Also you can go to the manufacturers website, register your product and update your maps, in the time since you purchased your device, your area may have been mapped. You will need to USB connect your GPS to an internet connected computer to do this.

If you need mor help let me know I CAN solve this problem.

All i know to do is put the link here to give you another avenue of getting there other than going to the site yourself. Worth a shot i guess.

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.

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

Rural addresses - Township & Range roads


With the Garmin Mapsource program just type in the name of the road and search. It shows up, and it's not saskatoon but corman park, although near to saskatoon, it's actually in a different area. This also happens when cities grow and small rural area's become part of the bigger picture, it's stil located where it historically was...looking for places can be sort of tedious. If I need to go somewhere, If i can't find it I ask for coördinates...the other way of getting there...A friend of mine lives on kitely line near jasper in Ont. the GPS knows the place as Line 3...huh?

How to program a destination


In general, once you key in an address and then select a route, the name/route will be saved in "recent destinations." If you want to use that destination, just select it. If you want to add it to "Favorites", then select "Add Favorite" and all your recent destinations will appear. Select the one you want and rename it: E.g., instead of "220 W. Walnut St." rename it "Grandma's House" and it is set.
