Question about GPS

1 Answer

Hi.....I'm from Wpg.MB. Canada. I bought a TomTom 3rd.Edition on April 13th.2008 in Grand Forks for $199.99 at Best Buy. I got it home and it doesn't work. I asked my friends to show me how to use it, in case it was me, not knowing how to set it. It seems to be stuck and it is charged. So I went to Best Buy here in Wpg.for help. They checked it out and said I should have the GPS replaced. But because I bought it in Grand Forks, there is nothing they can do for me in Wpg. Where can I get it fixed or replaced? If you can't help me....I've wasted my money. Thank you for your time. Gloria Hiebert redcruisergirl@yahoo.ca 1-204-336-0903

Hello cruisergirl,

I am sorry to hear about your problems with the GPS. Unfortunately, Best Buy™ stores in Canada are not able to process returns on products purchased at U.S. Best Buy locations (and vice versa). At this point, your best bet is going to be contacting TomTom for service. They are the manufacturer of the device and can provide repair under the limited warranty. Their number is 1-866-486-6866.

Best Regards,
Ken

How do i update my Tomtom 3RD Edition (1GB) GPS Systems for free i would appreciate it if you have an answer thanks.


Hi, I was having trouble too and have found the manual for the 3rd edition online
http://download.tomtom.com/open/manuals/one3rd/refman/TomTom-ONEv3-en-GB.pdf

I'm following these instructions:

Installing TomTom HOME
Install TomTom HOME on your computer in the following way.
  • Connect your computer to the Internet and then connect your TomTom ONE to your computer using the USB cable.
  • A pop-up window appears. Select Run TomTom HOME. Click OK and follow the on-screen instructions.
  • If the pop-up window does not appear, browse to the TomTom device on your computer and run the file named Install TomTom HOME.
  • TomTom HOME is also available for download from the TomTom website.
  • For more information visit www.tomtom.com/home
  • Once installed, TomTom HOME will start automatically whenever you connectyour TomTom to your computer.

Hope this helps, Lynsey

Down loading Europe on my TomTom 1/3


Yes you can I have europe and canada on mine.

just plug your tomtom into your computer and start tomtom home

On the computer screen for tomtom select ADD MAPS

Here you can select and buy the maps you need.

Once you have confirmed the purchase you will be given instructions on how to download etc

Some maps may take a little time to install to the tomtom itself.

you should also ensure there is enough space on your tomtom
If not you will have to get an SD memory card.

I use a 4gb one that still has lots of room to spare

Hi, i bought a tomtom 1 3rd adition from a friend. I didnt have the instruction or box just the actual tomtom and car charger. Every time i press home their address still comes up how do i change this....


On TomTom Go at least: Change preferences/change Home location/ Then select from several options. If you are at your home location then fastest is to select "my location", next easiest is to select "Address", then "Street and number"

Cheers,
Pat

Tomtom one xl


from what you describe it is likely your tomtom has blown IC's inside. Please take a look under the tomtom GO 300 section as this problem is answered there and is very similar to yours.

Tomtom One 3rd edition - no SD slot and not enough memory


You could probably just manually delete the Canada/USA maps from the device, and copy over the europe (or whichever ones you need) to the device. 
Just plug it in, and view the memory like a normal usb drive..delete the old, copy over the new.
Don't forget to use tomtom home to backup your gps device to your computer first (thus saving your canada maps for later..)
Afterwards, you would probably have to go into your preferences and choose the europe maps.
Good luck!
