    Power+Find doesn't do anything. The manual says Power+in resets the unit but that still doesn't fix the problem. Any other help would be great!!

Was just given a TomTom and car adappter to use on my trip from MI to MD. I've never used a GPS and no manual was included how to program it from start to final destination


The TomTom only needs for you to enter your destination address. Once that's in, you're ready to go. Along your route you can tap the center of the screen to find POINTS OF INTEREST such as FOOD, LODGING, etc...but will retain destination info 'til either cleared or changed to new destination.

To enter your destination, tap center of screen. There you choose house address, business address or city's center. If you choose street address screen opens to:keyboard. Type in destination State, ie; Maryland. Once you've typed state, hit DONE in bottom right corner. The screen then goes to CITY. Type in destination city then hit done again. Follow the same steps for STREET NAME & HOUSE #. Click DONE & CONTINUE as prompted. TomTom will then target your location and you're ready to hit the road. It will show you your distance and time (ETA). It will also show you the speed limit where you are and the actual speed you are going.

When you pull over for gas, food, lodging, shopping, sight-seeing or whatever, it will automatically account for this and will continuously update your coordinates to get you back to the highway/road you need to be on. And when you're ready to come back to MI all you have to do is hit the home icon and it will automatically map your trip back.(Home is - or should be - set to the home address of the owner of the GPS).

All-in-All it is user friendly and very simple to use.

If you need additional info, please don't hesitate to ask.

I hope this info was helpful to you. Good Luck!
Have a great trip and drive safely. :-)

My 3200 seems to have the screen stuck on my home address location and no matter what I do...putting in a destination or whatever...it will not direct me. It just shows my home street map. What can I do to...


It would appeasr you have no satellite connection to reset it to a new destination. Make sure the battery is fully charged first and that you are in a location that is clear to the sky. 3 mins maximum to connect is what should happen. Ifr at any time you have started the engine with the GPS connected it could and does affect the SIIRF chip and will never work again. It also damages the battery over time.

Check that you can even access the satellites by using settings.

Imaccurate directions, from my house


Try putting your gps on the shortest distance not the scenic route. That is in the system menu area.
