New TomTom will be released around mid-April. Anyone planning on taking the plunge?
First, the disclaimer: This works with my TT 340XLS. I am pretty sure it will work for you but no guarantees!
I downloaded several POI files and matched them up with icons files from this site. I made sure the icon names matched the POI files names. I even made sure all the icons were 22 X 22 pixels, set to 8 bit color depth (256 Colors) and set to 72DPI resolution.
When I go to the POI listing I can see that the POI files have linked to the proper icon files. However, when I elect to show a POI on the Map Browser, the icons do not show. I have tried zooming into the Map to see if they would show up then. They don't. Some POI/Icon files work just fine and others do not. All the POI sites show up in the list with the distance from my current location.
What am I missing here? Like I said before, all the POI files have linked to their appropriate icon files as shown by the POI listing. Only some of them will show up on the map when 'Show POI on Map' is selected.
At first I suspected the icon files were not in the proper format. As I said above, I changed their format to be all the same. Doing this did not fix the issue. Some still show and some do not.
Any help would be appreciated.
one very cool piece of pizzazz! Planning a long motorcycle tour this Summer and didn't want to have the EZ mount screwed to my speedo glass (hard to keep track of gas gauge and can't see odometer). Decided on the Ram and it really is very handy and easy to use.
Looking for assistance. I just down loaded a updated "Diners Drive-Ins and Dives" file .OV2 format to my Tom Tom device folder as I have in the past. I saved the new file in the "USA and Canada" folder. It looked like ny device was "updating". I disconnected the Tom Tom from the computer and can access any catagory "Point of Interst" and I can see the Diners Drive-Ins and Dives icon.
TT Home version 18.104.22.1688 is available.
Hoping someone can help. I have a list of custom POI's that I use on my garmin in .csv format. I am trying to share them with a co-worker who has a tom tom. And used the converters online. Everything seemed to go ok, but when I go to use them on the tom tom it says there are not poi's in the folder.
Can someone help me understand how to convert these correctly?
The 865 edition of maps has been released by TomTom.
I have downloaded a couple of POI's for my Tomtom XXL540 and it seems Like I have them loaded correctly. I now see the POI in preferences, I have checked the Poi (for example Pure-Gas) and I then go to alert.. I choose it for alert, I have entered 200 yards, have chosen the voice alert and saved all this.
Next edition of maps (865?) should be out in the next week to 10 days.
I have read the forum and created a ov2 file. I now want to get it on my tomtom xl 350. I dont want to upload it to the tomtom server because the poi's in the file are private. Anyway to send this file to only my device?
I am thinking about getting the TomTom Go 2505, I would like to know is can anybody replace the battery or is it like some of the Garmins ?
i really want a stop watch program for tomtom. ive looked for a whole day and cant find one . any help would be much appreciated.
I just received a 550 XXL, replaces a failed Nuvi 200W.
I like the unit so far, the only thing I don't like is that you can manual set a zoom setting...it automatically changes back. I like to set it so I can see the majority of the surrounding roads/features, but on a long trip; the unit zooms out and loses that detail.
Is there a fix? I can't find a setting anywhere to control this...
I have successfully downloaded the POI I want but they now show up as a red box on my GPS when I locate them. I was told to get the name of the item to show up instead of the red box I have to also download the bidmap for that item. I do not see bidmap files to download when I enter the item. I will use Home Depot as an example. Any help would be appreciated.
I'm looking for a new gps, I'm getting away from garmin and might go with a TomTom. Any body know which is the best TomTom to get?
how do I change the low overpass gpx to the poi for the tom tom 1
