FYI Staples is offering the TomTom XL 335 GPS this coming Wednesday (11/17/2010) for $90.
Okay, I'm all new to GPS, got a Tomtom XXL550T. My wife and I live full time in a motorhome. I'm not sure I have this correct or not. I think I downloaded a low clearance alert POI, and Walmart and Cracker Barrel POIs. It in the POI management menu on the TT it seems they are all together. I guess I just want to make sure I'm downloading it correctly.
looking at this unit at buy.com and a little confused . everybody else says its a 5 inch screen and tech specs at the bottom of their page say its a 4.3 inch .any tomtom xxl 550m owners out there ?
I've been playing with the tomtom go 2505 and i think it's good enough to dump my garmins.
Anyone try his WiFi poi on a Tomtom? I just did on my 930 and I show them installed but Im not seeing them.
I use the old PDA/smart phone software Navigator 6. I have used custom POI files before, but I am new to POI Factory files.
I downloaded a couple and tried them out. In TomTom, I could see the files in the list and if I used the Find feature the items showed up, but I had trouble seeing them in the map. They didn't show up at all, not a red box, not an icon -- nothing.
Sony is coming out with two new units that fit in the dash. One has a 7 inch touch screen and the other has a 6.1 inch screen for a slightly smaller price.
Go here for some more info.
I'm a TomTom guy who just found out the hard way that the unites sometimes don't react well to being dropped. Anyway I may be in the market for a new unit and I was wondering if anyone is familiar with this unit. 2 features of my current unit that I really want on a new unit are Itinerary planning and the ability to set warnings prior to reaching points of interest.
I have a TomTom One 130. I have downloaded several POI files in the .ov2 format and loaded them onto my TomTom in the appropriate map folder. When I have the POI category selected in the show POI screen, I do not see the POI icons on the map screen. If I search for the POI, it is found and the icon appears, but when I search for something else, the icon for the previously found POI is gone again.
I need some help from some of you TomTom guys. A friend just bought one and I'm a Garmin guy so I can't give him much help. Does TomTom have any mapping software like MapSource for Garmin. Also how does he load POIs from the poi-factory.
Having had my TomTom for only a few days, I found very quickly that either I am missing something or there is no way to categorize Favorites on the TomTom. I guess I have gotten "spoiled" from my Garmins capability to categorize the Favorites in such a way that I don't have to search all favorites to find one. As I said, I haven't figured out a way - yet - to categorize the Favorites.
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 220.127.116.116 is out now.
Claims it is a critical update???
New Version 18.104.22.1686 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?
