SOURCE: not switching on

Have had same problem twice but different solutions. Either 1. use a paper clip to press the reset button whilst holding down the power on button. Reset button is underneath and hard to see. or 2. Mother board failed and TOMTOM replaced it within 4 days. pleased with service. I am in the UK so that probably helped.

SOURCE: tomtom 730 cannot enter address with a letter such as 2N124

When you're typing the address, at the bottom of the onscreen keyboard is a button that toggles the alphanumeric characters from the alphabet to the numeric keypad. That should allow you to type in numbers and letters as needed.

Does that solve your problem?

Address delete

I don't think there is an option to delete an address or your recent destinations. If you really want to delete an address, because nobody needs t know, the only option is to set back to factory options. But that will also deleet al your settings and favourites.
If you want to edit (and or delete favourites) there is a menu optie in Change preferences called Manage Favourites

If you want to hide your destinations, you could protect your device with a 4-digit password, but for that you must connect the device to a computer and use TomTom Home.
In the menu preferences choose Set Owner.

How do i save add to fav place

Favourites are places / addresses that you want to keep on file.

To add an address to your list of Favourites ...

From the Main Menu, tap Add Favourite.

You can then select the location of the Favourite from: an address (that you enter), your Home, or a recent destination, a point of interest, your current position/location, or a position that you tap on the map browser.


How do I clear out old address locations on the tomtom ONE from start to finish I have 2 adresses in there that is NO LONGER needed

It depends on if you have them set as favourites, POI (Points of Interest) or recent locations?

If Favourites or POI, just go into the menu/settings, and delete from there, if recent detination, do a soft reset. If that fails, do a hard reset

How do you enter new address once it is programmed...enter it hit OK and it converts back to original

You can actually re-enter the same address as many time as your device can physically hold in its flash memory.
My guess is that you are looking at your old 'saved' favorite: if you want to make absolutely certain about any 'new' favorites, I would suggest that you delete or rename the original one(s) first by using:
'Changes preferences' -> scroll right to 'Manage Favorites' -> scroll up/down to locate the favorite to be maintained and either 'Delete' or 'Rename'.

Hope it helps. Let me know how you go!

How do I delete addresses from my Tomtom?

There are two ways

One is from the TOMTOM itself

Touch the map display once.
Select the spanner / wrench icon
Press the right arrow until you see MANAGE FAVOURITES.
Select the one you wish to delete and the display will change.
At the bottom of the screen will be a DELETE button use that.
It will ask for confirmation click YES.
Click DONE when you have finished.

Two is via TOMTOM home
Start TTH
Connect your GPS
Start the GPS
TTH will probably offer you updates (let it do its thing)
When the update is done use the right arrow on your PC display and select OPERATE My TOMTOM

Now use the same method as you did above.

To delete ALL recent destinations

Touch the map once
Now select DELETE
It will ask for confirmation select YES
they will all be deleted and the flag will grey out .
Touch BACK
Touch DONE.


Delete an address that I have been in another state

As far as I am aware you can delete addresses but not just one address-you would need to clear all of your favourites. So if you have 20 addresses saved you will need to delete them all.
The only other method may be to add a lot more so that some of the older ones get deleted but it doesnt really solve your problem. I would just leave it personally-unless you want to remove all traces of where you have travelled.

TOMTOM/how to delite address in favorite?

If you mean delete addresses in favorite then

tap 'Manage favourites' to delete any favourite locations that are no longer needed. You can also rename them, if you wish. Use Arrow-head up and Arrow-head down to scroll up and down the list and pick the one you want to change or delete.

and i am not sure which TomTom Go you have (maps preloaded only go700 and go910 no memory card slot), you can download manual

go to tomtom website ----> support scroll down at the right hand side click Find downloads


Not switching on

Complain to Tom Tom ,you may have a lemon,look for law suit soon
