I am somewhat new to the GPS world but I did download the rest area poi file to my TomTom XXL. On a recent trip from Atlanta to Raleigh I noticed that only 2 of about 8 rest areas were alerted/displayed. Any ideas and why would TomTom not include rest areas on their maps? I appreciate any help.
Hey every one,
If TT sticks to their normal quarterly schedule, new 875 maps should be released in the next couple of weeks.
I have loaded five files into my TOMTOM ONE. I used existing BMP icons.
These icons show up on my Garmin ok.
Only the McDonalds does not show up on the ONE. It does show up when I am navigating to it but not when driving past.
I set alerts for three POIs on my TomTom. I followed the directions found on this site's TomTom FAQ. One works - a file for rest areas that was built in to the TomTom. The two that I downloaded from this site - McDonalds and Wendys - show up on the map, but no alerts come up for them as set. Both files were TomTom format. I for all I used alert sounds built in to the TT.
Hey, folks. Has anybody worked with this device?
I'm especially interested to know if it's possible to configure the device, so it will advice about changing a route if I missed a turn for example. Garmin always says "recalculating" so you know something is wrong. TomTom does it silently and sometimes it can take you a much longer route, while a simplied solution is to make a u-turn
Tried to transfer the Favorite file from my 855 to my new 3790lmt. The problem is that I can't find the current.gpx file in the 855. I don't know if I made have deleted it by mistake or not. How do I retrive the file.
I just spent two hours trying to create an itinerary on the TomTom that avoided roads that I cannot drive on. Is there anyway to create a route on any routing web site - and which - and transfer it to the TT as a new itinerary to be saved in the itinerary section for later use?
I am curious as to how many buy the map updates (either yearly or quarterly) and why or why not. This does not include those lucky souls who have the free annual updates.
I don't know what the procedure is on duplicate posts, but since this isn't just Garmin Related, I'll post this in both forums......
I Complained considerably in a letter to Ford Exes about my new Escape not having the capability of User POI's, even though they have a Bi-Directional USB port and do accept programs and data from the USB port.
I was on a trip the other day, was using my TomTom 540XXL and all of a sudden the screen of the TT displayed a triangle and what appeared to be a pause sign and then went blank. At about that time, I looked around and noted a Police Car on the side of the road facing my direction. I am assuming his radar gun was on when it hit my TT.
870 Edition maps are available thru TomTom Home or TomTom.com.
I have been asked to give my opinion about the 2535. I have had it for about six weeks now and it is everything I hoped for and more. I love everything about it. I have had zero issues with it and it is working great. The only issue is the "My TomTom" application. TomTom is being very slow to bring it up to speed. They are adding things sporadically.
Is it possible to share maps between TT One and TT XL?? I owned a TT one for about 2 or 3 years and recently bought a TT XL for my wife. I notice that the XL map have some good corrections made. I would like to know if it's possible to copy the map of the XL on the computer and then write it on the TT one. If it's possible witch files are the correct ones???
does anyone know where you can get the screen repaired at on these GPS's?
The new version is 126.96.36.1994
I just got a TomTom Indash (Eclipse) and I am looking to put custom POIs on the unit. I see how to install the POI file but how do I add a custom icon for those files?
TomTom XL340S 4.3" Portable Touch-Screen GPS - $59.99
How can i put custom POI file that my company made on my tom tom XL 350TM. I try opening the map and putting them in there but no luck
Tom Tom sells customer's aggregate tracking data to police to show where people often speed; aids police in placing speed traps.
Now if they were REALLY smart, they would sell it to us as likely spots to expect speed traps.
