Was just given a TomTom and car adappter to use on
The TomTom only needs for you to enter your destination address. Once that's in, you're ready to go. Along your route you can tap the center of the screen to find POINTS OF INTEREST such as FOOD, LODGING, etc...but will retain destination info 'til either cleared or changed to new destination.
To enter your destination, tap center of screen. There you choose house address, business address or city's center. If you choose street address screen opens to:keyboard. Type in destination State, ie; Maryland. Once you've typed state, hit DONE in bottom right corner. The screen then goes to CITY. Type in destination city then hit done again. Follow the same steps for STREET NAME & HOUSE #. Click DONE & CONTINUE as prompted. TomTom will then target your location and you're ready to hit the road. It will show you your distance and time (ETA). It will also show you the speed limit where you are and the actual speed you are going.
When you pull over for gas, food, lodging, shopping, sight-seeing or whatever, it will automatically account for this and will continuously update your coordinates to get you back to the highway/road you need to be on. And when you're ready to come back to MI all you have to do is hit the home icon and it will automatically map your trip back.(Home is - or should be - set to the home address of the owner of the GPS).
All-in-All it is user friendly and very simple to use.
If you need additional info, please don't hesitate to ask.
I hope this info was helpful to you. Good Luck!
Have a great trip and drive safely. :-)
How can I charge my tomtom xl 340s with my
According to Bill, from the TomTom technical services, your TomTom will charge when plugged either to your computer or to your car, as long at your gps unit is turned OFF.
How do i get my tomtom to give street names in
Not all sound files speak out the street names. If you would like to have the street names spoken, you need to select a voice that ends with computer. For example, the voice file selection: Simon, English UK, Computer will speak street names. But the voice file, Bonnie, English US, will not speak Street names. Dave, English US, computer will give you street names but Lori or Mandy, English US will not. Procedure to get the street names spoken: Tap on main screen. Tap on change preferences. Tap on arrow. Tap on change voices. Tap (select) a voice that ends with computer. Tap select. Tap done till you reach the main screen.
To charge my tomtom, does my car need to be
hi, you can jsut charge it up each time you go in your car you dont need to do a full charge every time, most people leave them plugged in whilst driving so they are always being charged, so you dont need to do a full charge just plug it in as and when you want to use it.
if your going to use it without it being plugged in then the chances are it wont stay charged for long so this is why everyone just leaves them plugged in whilst driving their car, as the battery will go flat really quick.
The gps has a red circle with an Xin it .the gps
Probably the last update was not applied correctly or it was corrupted.
Please, try this:
1) Place the GPS on the cradle connected to the computer and start TomTom Home.
2) Turn the GPS on and connect it to the computer.
3) Erase the downloaded software (using the "remove items" from the TomTom home software)
4) Choose "disconenct device" from the drop down menu of TomTom Home
after the GPS powers down and restarts, press the RESET button on the button *keep it pressed for 7 seconds)
5) Repeat setps 1-2 from above. When TomTom Homw detects your GPS, it will offer to update it. If it doesn't, choose "update device" from the TomTom Home buttons
Please, report back if you need further assistance
My tom tom wont turn on where is the reset bitton
look for a small hole on the outside case near the sd card reader. might need a paperclip or pin to poke the microswitch inside the hole. simply clicking the switch doesn't work, try holding it for 5 seconds then try to power up. Common problem with GPS devices, (my mio included) is after being plugged in for a long time, the battery life becomes nil and it relies upon the charger. Check tom to xl for further problem solving. google search TOM TOM XL won't power up.
I have a Tom Tom 340S XL and I cannot get it to
You solved the problem for me. I switched to a "computer voice" and the Tom Tom began calling out the street names. As many times as I read the 340S manual I never saw the requirement to use only a computer voice to speak the street names. Your help is greatly appreciated. Thanks again.
