TomTom One XL-S update has lock feature

How to unlock ?

The TomTom goes into a reduced menu (single page) and displays message it is in a locked mode.

How to unlock ? Can't find anything about this "feature" which seem to have appeared after a recent auto update (a few weeks back).

Thanks

TOMTOM XL2 europe no tts how do i activate?


Generally, all the models that come with the TTS has the model number appended with "S". for example: xl 340S, xl 330S etc. The models that does not come with the TTS feature can be made possible to add this feature only if the application on the device is updated. This is possible only if the TomTom releases an application update, which incorporate the TTS feature in it. Else there is NO third party application that can be downloaded and installed on the device to have it enabled or added.

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.

NEED UPDATES


Yes, you can get SOME updates for free... indefinetely.

You will need the latest version of TomTom Home software, available for free from www.tomtom.com.

Install the software on your computer BEFORE connecting the TomTom GPC to the USB port of the computer.

The free updates you can get are:

1) "QuickFix" updates. This contains the global positions of GPS satellites, allowing the TomTom GPS to get a faster lock on the GPS satellites (the GPS will get a lock within 5-10 seconds of being turned on, instead of 2-5 minutes on some other GPS brands). It is suggested that you update the QuickFix at least once a week. If you don't do it often, the GPS will just take longer to find the GPS satellites, that's all.

2) Minor updates to your map(s), but only the ones submitted by other TomTom users.

3) Updates to POIs (Points of Interest), such as new stores, malls, gas stations, parking lots, etc.

Whole-map updates ARE NOT FREE

The following are the steps (for TomTom One):
- You can only change the Safety options when you are not moving/the car is static. - Tap on screen to bring up 'Change preferences' -> Safety preferences -> Uncheck all options but more specifically 'Hide most menu options while driving' .
Hope it helps: let me know of the results.

Hi, just bought a one xl, have tried to set up my home address and I pressed a wrong button, Italy instead of u.k., got up 'change home location' on the screen and selected street and house number, tapped...


age has nothing to do with new technology,

if the language in One XL is Italian then use google translate


TomTom One XL manual page 33
Tap Change preferences in the Main Menu.

(When you first start using your TomTom ONE XL, not all the buttons will be shown in the menu. Many buttons and some more advanced features are hidden because you will not need these features very often.To see all of the buttons and features, tap "Show ALL menu options" button in the Preference menu.)

then

TomTom One XL manual page 36
Tap "Change language" button to change the language
You can choose from a wide range of languages. When you change the language, you are also given the opportunity to change the voice.

if your one is not One XL any TomTom manual can find here


Hope this help
