DO A HARD RESET ON THE UNIT FIRST. IT IS HARD TO SEE AND VERY SMALL, BUT IN THE TOP OF THE BACK OF THE UNIT WHERE IT HOOKS INTO THE CRADLE THERE IS A RESET HOLE. AS YOU ARE LOOKING AT THE GREEN CIRCUIT BOARD BY THE CRADLE CONNECTOR, LOOK AT THE PLASTIC PIECE, NOT THE PIN CONNECTOR BUT ABOVE IT, ON THE RIGHT SIDE. THERE IS A VERY SMALL HOLE AND THE PLASTIC PIECE IS SHAPED TO GO AROUND IT FROM AN OTHERWISE STRAIGHT EDGE. YOU WILL NEED SOMETHING SMALL, I USED A BENT STAPLE, AND PUSH IT IN THERE FAIRLY FIRMLY. IF THE UNIT IS ON, IT WILL SHUT IT OFF. WAIT 5 SECONDS AND TRY TO TURN ON AGAIN. WIRKED FOR ME. GOOD LUCK!

Instead of addresses can I set the gps to highway numbers as (Route 39).


Hi yes you can but with GPS units its kinda funky for example on my TOMTOM I have to enter US route 59. On my wife's Garmin you have to enter it as Illinois state route 59 and on my moms Magellan it goes in completely different.

Most destinations and even points of interest can be found but it often takes as long as 5 minutes to figure out how to input the info.

An example for instance in my area I have looked up Fox Valley Mall but on Magellans unit it only shows up as Westfield Fox valley, I have lived here 20 years where did the Westfield come from?

Something I have done in the past is select "find intersection" and then enter a street that I know intersects with the Highway I am looking for and then check to see how the GPS recognizes it.

Hope that helps

I lost the dock that connects to the computer


Your only option is to purchase another Home dock for your TomTom GO 510. The 510, 710, and 910 all use the same dock. The cheapest place to purchase a home dock is ebay. The answer to the second part of your question is no, you cannot purchase a usb cable to connect your TomTom GO 710 to your pc. The TomTom GO series uses a proprietary dock.

I live in Michigan and set up my tomtom. I'll be going on a trip to canada in a few weeks and wanted to see how it worked. When I try to set up a route from home to the hotel where I'll be staying in...


By default, the TomTom ONE 125 does not include maps of Canada. You can do one of two things:

1. If you just purchased it and can take it back, buy a TomTom ONE 130. It includes Canada maps and usually is only about $10-20 more.

2. Use the TomTom Home software (the same one that you use to update the TomTom and add voices, etc) and purchase the maps for it. I'm not sure how much they are, but certainly less than a new GPS.

Hope this helps!
