I just picked up a TomTom XXL540TM. Thought I would check out how TomToms work, as compared to Garmins. I have been accessing and installing POI's on my Garmin for quite a time, including the Red light camera's. I use the POIloader for that. My question is, can I basically do the same with the TomTom? I currently place poiloader.exe, sox.exe and the various POI's in the same folder.
Looks like Tom Tom is beginning to put out new 855 maps. Current ones are 850.
Version 126.96.36.1996 is out now.
Claims it is a critical update???
New Version 188.8.131.526 is available.
I recently took advantage of the Amazon Gold Box deal on the TomTom.
Haven't used it yet, but the software and download functionality is way superior to the Garmin (1350T) and the Navigon (7200T) that I have owned.
I have a feeling I'm going to miss my traffic updates. Is it really as simple as buying the right car charger/antenna? And does anyone know where they are cheap?
I just created a new POI file and dont know how to send it to the POI Factory to share.
Any/all help will be appreciated.
Great Price for a 5" Screen
I want to download some of the icons that I've found here to my Tom Tom. Is this possible?
09.07.10 (b17) Now with additional font sizes '4' and '5'
Version 184.108.40.2064 is available.
We just went on a trip to Canada, flying to Bangor, ME then driving from there to Canada. I didn't take my Garmin because it doesn't have maps of Canada. We used Google Maps Navigation on my Android phone. It was great in the city, but it sent us up I-95 to Canada, which would have added 3 or 4 hours to the trip.
I just got a TomTom Go 730 to replace my older Garmin. I have always had Garmins, and I like them, but I wanted to try something new this time.
I was wondering what advice/suggestions people have for me to get the most out of my new unit. What should an old Garminite know about moving into the TT world? etc.
Thanks in advance.
Third Edition One XL. On our way up north the entire GPS crashes which seemed to be due to a corrupt map. Back up was also corrupted. Purchased new map from TomTom and went about trying to put POIs back on as before.
Does anyone know if the new EasyMenu on the XL350 (or XXL550) has the capability to manage POI alerts and map display? I played around with an XL350 for a few minutes, and could not find it. The reason I ask is for the viability of using 3rd party speed/redlight camera POIs as I do now with my old One XL.
GPS Business Review makes a prediction on the role Tom Tom, and possibly other manufacturers will play in the future.
I wouldn't really describe this as a problem, more like an annoyance. I just loaded 2 new POI files on my unit specifically for a trip I'm about to make. I have 3 destinations that I loaded as an itinerary. The problem is that the new POIs don't show up when asking to browse maps, points along route BUT I know they are there.
Height 16 is available.
26.05.10 (b16) Now works with NavCore 8.351 (TT7000)
It is for TomToms only.
TT Home 220.127.116.112 is now available.
I just got an e-mail from TeleAtlas saying that they had corrected a map error that I submitted 1.5 years ago. Wow... they need to devote more resources to this. TeleAtlas maps just aren't that accurate in the USA (IMHO).
