    I am unable to change the time on my TomTom Go 720.

    I can go to the change preference screen and then to page 8 of this but the set clock icon is grey and unaccessible. Any ideas how to fix this?

The safety lock is enabled and I am unable to turn this off. I am also unable to navigate to an address or favorites. It is also on the wrong time zone.


The safety lock is active only while the device is moving. When you stop, you can access all buttons again. To switch off the feature,
  • Tap the map display to go to the device main menu
  • Tap "Change Preferences"
  • The TomTom XL device hides many menu options by default. If you can see an icon "Show ALL menu options", tap this one next. It should show as "Show fewer menu options" now.
  • Locate the icon "Safety Preferences" (a red heart on blue background) and tap it. This will allow you to deactivate the safety lock feature.
  • You may want to hide the lesser used menu options again.
In order to set the time properly:
  • Tap the clock button to set the time and to change the way the time is displayed.
  • The easiest way to set the time is by tapping the Sync button. Your ONE XL will then take the time from the GPS information it receives.
  • After using Sync to set the time, you may have to adjust the hours depending on your time zone. Your ONE XL works out your time zone and always keeps the time correct using the GPS information.
  • You can only use Sync if you have GPS reception, so you cannot set the clock in this way when you are indoors.

Hello,

follow the steps below:

  1. Touch the center of the screen to bring up the "Main Menu" window. A list of options will appear on the screen.
  2. Tap "Change Preferences" and "Set Clock" to bring up the "Set Clock" window. Several additional options are available in this window.
  3. Press the "Sync" button on the screen to set the time on your GPS unit. The TomTom One will use information from the satellites to correct the time on your GPS unit.
I hope this helps to solve your problem.
Good luck.

How to change the language


At first use all options are available. After that many options become hidden. You will have to play with the Change Settings option until you find the one that says Show Fewer Menu Options and deactivate it. Once you do that you will recover the Change Language option.

If you are too impatient to go through the Change Settings, use the TOMTOM Home application to backup what is important on your GPS, then use the reset button. Next time you turn it on you will have the option to choose the language. To make things easier for you should you have to change any setting again, deactivate the Show Fewer Menu Options.

I downloaded the US-Canada map update and now i turn my TomTom on and it says i cant us that map and now i cant even use the device is there someway i can restore the device back to default?


You could try reseting the device

1) Turn the device off.

2) Press the Reset button located on the bottom of the device (you'll need a paperclip to do this).

3) Turn it back on. See if it works now.

Or...

1) Do you have Tom Tom Home set up on your computer?

2) Did you ever make a backup?

If so, now is the time to restore from backup.

To restore factory settings:

1) Turn on Show All Menu Items in the Preferences menu.

2) Tap the Reset Factory Settings button (it's on the last screen of the Preferences menu).

Best of luck to you.

Change time


>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>- --> --> Question Setting the clock Answer To select the type of clock that is shown and set the time, tap Change preferences > Set clock.
This feature is only available on your navigation device. You cannot use this feature in TomTom HOME.
  1. The easiest way to set the time is by tapping the Sync button. Your navigation device will then take the UTC time and date from GPS information.
    Note: You can only use Sync if you have GPS reception, so you cannot set the clock in this way when you are indoors.

  2. Adjust the hours depending on your time zone. Your navigation device works out your time zone and always keeps the time correct using GPS information. You only need to adjust the daylight-saving time.
