Hi,

Depending on the model, two things you can try:
1. do a reset. there may be a small recessed reset button under the faceplate. Alternately, you may want to reference 1, 2, 3, 4. 5 or 6
2. remove the backup memory battery (if your model has one).

Other than that, it could be a firmware glitch and the corrective procedure would be to re-install/flash an update the firmware.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Try to set it again:

1/Verify the date and local time (this should be
the date and time according to the local date and
time of country/area you are in). Because the
time shows is Universal Time (UTC), you will
need to enter a time offset to display the correct
local time for your area.
2/Move the field highlight to the OFFSET field
and press Enter
3/With the arrows (←→), go to the figure which
represents the hours then with the up & down
arrows (↑↓), select the time offset for your
longitude and press .
4/Move the field highlight to the HOURS field
and change to 24 if that is not already the case.
5. Press QUIT , to return to the MENU Page, then select
Navigation Setup “NAV SETUP” with the Up & Down arrows (↑↓)
then press ENTER

Hope that helps.......

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.

How do you set the time on a c340?


Question: The time is not correct on my StreetPilot. How do I set it?
I think one of these 2 may help you.... --> Answer: The GPS unit acquires the time from satellites. Therefore, to display the correct time, the StreetPilot first needs to acquire satellites. You can then set the time zone and daylight savings time.
To set the time zone and daylight savings time:
  1. Press the Menu button two times.
  2. Select System Setup.
  3. Select the Time tab.
  4. Select the time zone and daylight savings preference.

The date that my Nuvi operates on is incorrect


Nuvi 200 - trying to reset the date using the method suggested by Kevin A (and in a cellar) and after two hours the Nuvi was still "locating satellites". Am I doing something wrong?!

My main problem, however, is that having loaded a copy of the latest European maps onto the card used in the device, when going through the "where to" routine I am asked to enter State/Province. Living in the UK this is a little difficult as there is no answer I can give that the unit will recognise! Any ideas?
