Hello,

This is a software problem.

First, reset the unit and try again.

If resetting doesn't solve the problem, re-update the map via the computer's internet. Re-updating the map most times solves problems like this.

Lastly, non of the above seem to solve the problem, remove the memory stick (if any) and turn the unit on without the memory stick/card and observe if its still going to freeze. Sometimes the memory may be corrupted and cause the unit to freeze.

You didn't state the model of the unit, if not, I would have directed you on how to reset the unit and do the update. But I believe you are able to do these....

I hope the above make sense to you.

Good luck

How do use tomtom


TomTom's GPS devices provide consumers with portable navigation solutions. Download maps, view turn by turn updates and listen to spoken directions on trips across town or across the country. TomTom has a variety of GPS products, but basic use and inputting destination information are almost identical across the board. If you're just taking your TomTom out of the box, you'll need to perform a few extra steps to complete set up. I am listing the 7 steps to use TomTom below;

1. Ensure your TomTom unit is fully charged. A full charge requires approximately two hours. Power the unit by pressing and holding the "On/Off" button for approximately two seconds. Make sure you are in an unobstructed area. Wait for the Tom Tom to power up and acquire a satellite signal.


2. Answer the on-screen questions to set up your device. The questions only appear if this is the first time you've used your Tom Tom. Otherwise, the driving view and your current location will be displayed.

3. Tap the center of the screen to open the main menu. Tap "Navigate To" and then tap "Address."

4. Choose the option that describes how you wish to enter the address you are navigating to. You may tap "City Center," "Street and House Number," "Zip Code" or "Cross Street or Intersection." To enter an exact address, choose the "Street and House Number" option.

5. Type in the requested information by tapping the letters or numbers on the screen. As you type, matching town and street names will appear in a list format. Choose the correct option from the list when it is displayed by tapping it. If prompted, enter the house number by tapping the corresponding numbers on the screen. When you are finished, tap "Done".

6. Select "Yes" or "No" when asked if you need to arrive at a particular time. If "Yes" is chosen, follow the instructions to enter in the desired arrival time.
Step
Finally, follow the on screen and spoken directions to reach your destination.

Why would one turn " GPS Simulator" on or off ? What does this do for me?


hi, you didnt mention what model gps you have, but most gps simulation do the same thing. if you have the simulation activated (some models are on by default, others are off by default) once you put in an address for the gps to guide you, the gps (if in simulation mode) will show you the coarse you will be taken, before you start out.

so if your in NY and plot a coarse for California, it will show you moving along the plotted coarse...thats going to take quite a while to view since the simulation will move along at what ever the posted speed limit is along the route, so its kinda like watching grass grow unless it doesn't take much to amuse the person watching the simulation. it is quite handy in that it allows you to view turns and intersections ect ect ect before you ever get to them.

hope this makes sense...let me know if i need to explain it better, but if you turn on the simulation mode then enter an address, you'll see what i mean.

How do I put an address in my nuvi that is a corner. Like corner of william and douglas sts


If you don't have an address for the corner you can put in any number for one of the streets. Then instead of pressing GO press VIEW MAP. Drag the map, with your finger, until the corner of the 2 streets is just under the pointer. You'll need to zoom in, by pressing the + in the top right corner to get it exact. You can then press save, to save it in Favourites, or press Go.

How to find a location through the address I try to type the street name but found out is no match found. Please assist.


If your exact address cannot be found, it is possible that your installed Map is not up to date.
Short from updating the map (with no guarantee that 'new' street will be included), you can navigate to streets intersections instead or nearby street or some other POI landmark.
Hope it helps.
