Question about Tomtom ONE GPS Receiver

1 Answer

On our most recent trip, while in the car the gps was mounted to the windshield. When the destination was entered, it started to flash the message, "waiting for a gps signal"...or..."poor gps signal, are you in a building?"...The gps was fully charged. Is it the battery? Please advise. Thanks!

I do not think it is the battery. When you connect it to the computer and click the update my device icon the device downloads map update and the positions of the satellites for the next 7 days. However if you do not use the GPS it for a while, the satellite positions stored on it are no longer current and it may take it a while to zero in on the the new positions.

Hello.

AMagellan Global Positioning System (GPS) is a car device that determines thebest route from your current location to a destination that you enter. It thenguides you to that destination through voice and visual instructions. Thoughthese installation procedures can apply to all Magellan in general, they arespecific to the Magellan ONE mode
Installing
1 Choose an area by the driver's side windshield, belowyour line of sight, to install the Magellan mount. Make sure your view is notblocked when the GPS is installed.
2 Clean the area with glass cleaner and wait for it todry completely.
3 Remove the protective film from the mount's suctioncup. Moisten the bottom of the cup with a little water so it sticks securely tothe glass.
4 Press the suction cup against the windshield glass.If your model has an Easy Port dial, rotate itclockwise until it locks.
5 Plug the power charging cord into your Magellan andthe power outlet or cigarette lighter outlet of your car.Setup
1 Hold down the device switch for up to 20 secondsuntil a welcome screen appears. If the device does not turn on (the LED lightis not green), it may require recharging. Drive your car for a few minuteswhile your Magellan is attached to the power outlet. Then try turning it on again.
2 Answer the setup questions by tapping the screen. Youcan change your preferences any time after setup by tapping the "ChangePreferences" icon of the "Main" menu.
3 Your device needs to determine its current location,which can initially take up to 5 minutes. Drive your car to an open area withouttall buildings or trees. Put your Magellan on the dashboard console so it has aclear line of sight to the sky. When it determines your position, the deviceshows the driving view.
4 You can now enter a destination by tapping the screenand showing the Main menu. Tap the "Navigate To" button and enter anaddress.
5 Slide the Magellan onto the mount until it clicks.Twist the device slightly until you can clearly see the screen. Begin drivingand follow the GPS directions.
Thanks

HOW DO I DELETE ADRESSES FROM BINATONE G350 SAT NAV


You can only delete the Recent Destinations and destinations in the Address Book, the Sat Nav will still store destinations you have entered and as new ones are entered the older ones will fall off the system when maximum is reached.

Hi can i, is it possible to view all destinations visited with tomtom, not just recent destinations?


Sorry the tomtom will only remember about 40 previous trips, it automatically deletes the old ones once a new destination is added

Hi I recently bought the Garmin 1490T GPS and have never used a GPS before. I was able to start up the GPS and connect the charger in the car and enter the home address. However I am a bit lost on how to...


Refer to Page 8 of your owner's manual:
On the main screen, touch "Where to?", then enter the state, city and address at the next screen. Once you've entered the information, touch the address and your unit will probably ask "Navigate to there?" and confirm... and off you go. You can save addresses to your Favorites list as well.

When I arive at my destination. How do I return to my start destination? Do I have to reenter my start destination?


When you go to the screen to input the address it should have a recent locations option, if not you need to re-enter the adress.

I am trying to put in multiple destinations for the same trip. When I try to put in my second destination it keeps going back to my home site not my first destination. It starts the trip for my second...


The Nuvi you have does not support multiple destinations in a route. you can have 1 destination and 1 via point. So if you are going to a destination and you need to add a stop in the route, you can add the 2nd point to go to and then continue to the original destination.

Enter location message


Joe, have you tried the external yet? Did that fix it? This sounds like a Hard Drive problem, but I would try re-loading /reflashing nand flash before I went the hard drive route. Do you have the software?
