Question about Tomtom GO 700 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

When I get all the info. loaded the final screen shows a street map,on the right of screen are 3 symbols (1) battery, which is showing fully charged,(2) green symbols reading 0 satellites and (3) A cylinder with a blue cross meaning I think "not activated". The last time I used the TomTom it worked but today the voice said after 5 mins "you have reached your destination" when I actually had to drive for an hour before getting there. Frustration plus!! Help!!

Click on address and it just beeps and stays on the same screen

This is an indication that there is a problem with the map. The map contains all of the data regarding streets and points of interest. You can confirm this by going to the map screen and pressing the map info button. If the map info button is grayed out or there is no map listed on this screen or you see a (c) copyright symbol then there is a problem with your map. Please see this link regarding missing maps and how to get this problem resolved.

I bought a garmin gps on black friday but it is in spanish setting but i want language in english

  • Press TOOLS (the spanner symbol bottom right corner on the page that shows WHERE TO and VIEW MAP
  • Press SETTINGS (The spanner symbol) or LOCALE on some models (Blue symbol in top right)
  • Press LANGUAGE (the lips symbol)
This will take you to a screen with 3 items on it; TEXT LANGUAGE, VOICE and KEYBOARD
Press TEXT LANGUAGE and select American English
Press VOICE and select the name of an English speaking voice

I realise you may not be able to read the screen if it's in Spanish but by pressing all 3 you'll get the right settings.

Also if you have difficulty finding the screen with the TOOLS icon go to where you can see the map and press the MENU button in the bottom centre of the screen. This will take you to it.

Xperia x1 won't charge. The charging symbol will appear on the screen for a short period of time (perhaps 2 or 3 minutes) before disappearing a showing the full battery symbol. This shouldn't appear...

First try to replace the battery, a drained or low voltage battery won't charge up.

Map problem

There are two type of maps in the unit. There is the basemap which shows the states and major highway and roads and then there is the actual Mapsource maps which shows the streets. If you go to Mapinfo and it doesn't show anything, then Mapsource maps are missing.

With the 2610 you can use a card reader for the Compact Flash Memory card to load the maps. This is much faster since the card reader is USB 2.0 while the Garmin USB is 1.1 Under device look for the drive letter which correspond to the Campact Flash card.
