Question about GPS

1 Answer

I own a tomtom one (4N00.004.2) I purchased an update online 7-19-2010. Since that time it sometimes stop working when I enter some addresses. Tonight I planned a route and it showed the correct highway but gave me an exit number from a different highway. When I try to update from the internet it takes so long that the update does not complete. I was more pleased with my tom tom before I purchased the update in july than I am now. What are my choices?

After reading a lot of reviews and blogs about these problems, I'm not sure there's a solution, other than either putting up with it, or getting a new one, and not a TomTom (says the reviewers). I would sure try to get my money back for the upgrade, since you can't even get it to download. The wrong exit is clearly a mistake in programming, and the update is the only way to correct it. Not sure why it would stop working when entering some addresses, and maybe an update would correct that if you could get it. Don't know if TomTom could send the update on a disk, but you might check with them. Check with their support site.
I read a lot of negative reviews with thie unit- I'd opt for a different brand next time.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

How do I change home address on my TomTom via 225?


On the GPS itself go to: Home location
Tap this button to set or change your Home location. You enter the address in the same way as you do when you plan a route.
Your Home location provides an easy way to plan a route to an important location.
For most people, your Home location will be your home address. How-ever, you might prefer to set the location to another regular destination,such as your workplace.

Free maps downlolad


If/when you've just purchased a (brand) new TomTom GPS, you can register it (at the TomTom.com website) and download the latest map (for your device) .... free ... as part of the latest map guarantee.
Whenever you connect your GPS to the TomTom website (via TomTom HOME), you'll get (free) updates to your current map version - ... but they are NOT new versions of the maps.
To get new versions of your (current) map, you'll need to purchase the update (e.g. online, on the TomTom website). Upon paying for it, you will get the activation codes, etc. for you to download, validate and install the maps.

If your GPS has lifetime maps, (after you have registered), you'll be able to connect (via TomTom HOME) to get the latest map release, without requiring any code/password.

No maps found tomtom


So it told you no map was found when you enter an address? You can check with some other ways than entering the address such as name of building. If there is a problem loading the map, you will need to download a new map from their web site and update your map. If there is a problem connecting with the satellite you can try to start it a couple more times and see whether you get a better connetion with a new request.

Tomtom 100yds off


I have seen this when entering addresses with a letter in them such as 3N124. The address does not enter correctly you will get the wrong address and location. I am trying to find
out if the tomtom supports this address. So far I have been told, NO, by Tomtom support person, but have a hard time believing this since a Magellian accepts this and works. However I have seen a Magellian get my location wrong. I believe the map needs updating. Check the location by view route and zoom in on the location, does the address equal the location that is off if it does it is most likely the map is the problem. If the location equals the address entered maybe the sound is off, stop before entering your home and check the location vs your location on the map. Check you map year, also have someone else check with their gps, might help.

Voice is on but the unit stopped talking.


I don't know if this will help any, but when I updated my recently purchased tomtom go 720 with the newest app (8.3) and the new voices, map, etc...the voice feature completely stopped working on my unit. Everything else was working fine except the voice. However, I had installed an 8 gig sd card into my tomtom and put all the updates on the sd card because I was running low on the internal memory. Bythe way, only the voice instructions were not working..it would still play mp3's through the internal speaker, so I knew it must be a software problem. After several days with no voice instructions, I then proceeded to re-format the sd card and start all over, as the problem appeared to be a software issue. After re-formatting the sd card, I removed it and installed the back-up file from my tomtom before I did the first update. This time, I deleted a couple of the voices in the update package, so that I would have enough room to install the updates to the internal memory. "Bam" now everything is working perfectly again. I believe for me...the tomtom was having trouble communicating with the new application that I had previously installed on the sd card. I hope this may help someone.

I Would like to update my Garminc330. I have a glitch in the map (tells me address doesnot exist, when I know it does)


Garmin puts out map updates on a regular basis. You must purchase these. The GPS comes loaded with maps that are current as of the date of production of the unit. It cannot "know" when new roads are paved and new subdivision are created without being "told" via map updates. The unit knows where it is in relation to the maps loaded on it by receiving signals from the GPS satellites in orbit. If things change, the maps must be changed in order for the unit to give you correct directions.
