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. :-)

My TomTom XL arrived via Ebay with only the unit and car charger lead, no instructions or disc or lead for updates. Are these necessary and how do I acquire these please?

Hi gillian_duda
you do not need a disc but you do need a usb cable to update your tomtom...if you dont have one of these cables you can get them off ebay for under five dollars....see picture below


you can download the tomtom home program HERE just pick the operating system you are using on your computer. once you have downloaded the tomtom home application just follow the on screen directions.

you can download a copy of your manual HERE just scroll down the list till you find your XL, i would of given a direct link, but there are a few different XL models

I live in Michigan and set up my tomtom. I'll be going on a trip to canada in a few weeks and wanted to see how it worked. When I try to set up a route from home to the hotel where I'll be staying in...

By default, the TomTom ONE 125 does not include maps of Canada. You can do one of two things:

1. If you just purchased it and can take it back, buy a TomTom ONE 130. It includes Canada maps and usually is only about $10-20 more.

2. Use the TomTom Home software (the same one that you use to update the TomTom and add voices, etc) and purchase the maps for it. I'm not sure how much they are, but certainly less than a new GPS.

Hope this helps!

Is this the correct instruction manual?

Page 37, 38, and 39 talk about the requirements to get a gps fix.

Can you receive a GPS signal outside of the car?

Tomtom one map of Greece

I thought that the ONE came with the maps. I have the ONE XL and love that it is portable, I take it everywhere. That is definitely one of my favorite parts of the GPS, that and I don't get lost anymore!
