The safety lock is active only while the device is moving. When you stop, you can access all buttons again. To switch off the feature,

  • Tap the map display to go to the device main menu
  • Tap "Change Preferences"
  • The TomTom XL device hides many menu options by default. If you can see an icon "Show ALL menu options", tap this one next. It should show as "Show fewer menu options" now.
  • Locate the icon "Safety Preferences" (a red heart on blue background) and tap it. This will allow you to deactivate the safety lock feature.
  • You may want to hide the lesser used menu options again.
In order to set the time properly:
  • Tap the clock button to set the time and to change the way the time is displayed.
  • The easiest way to set the time is by tapping the Sync button. Your ONE XL will then take the time from the GPS information it receives.
  • After using Sync to set the time, you may have to adjust the hours depending on your time zone. Your ONE XL works out your time zone and always keeps the time correct using the GPS information.
  • You can only use Sync if you have GPS reception, so you cannot set the clock in this way when you are indoors.

To get rid of the other FAVORITE WAYPOINTS all you have to do is to go in SETTINGS, then in FAVORITES and to DELETE the previous input addresses.
To have your address displayed go outside under the clear sky and let your device acquire as many satellites as possible; when it's done input your own address and save it as POI/FAVORITES.
