EasyClick mount
Use the EasyClick mount to install your TomTom GO inside your car.
Make sure that both the EasyClick mount and your windscreen are clean and dry before
you attach the mount. Place the EasyClick mount so that it does not interfere with your
view of the road or of any of the controls in your car.
To attach the EasyClick mount, press the suction cup firmly against the windscreen on an
area where the glass is flat. Then twist the rubber grip near the base of the mount in a
clockwise direction until you hear a click.
Plug the cable into your car dashboard and connect the other end to the bottom of your
device.
Switching on and off
To switch on your navigation device, press and hold the On/Off button until you see the
start-up screen. The first time you switch on your device, it may take a short time to start.
Setting up
Important: Take care to select the correct language, since the language you choose will
be used for all menus and written instructions.
When you first switch on your device, you have to answer a few questions to set up the
device. Answer the questions by tapping the screen.
GPS reception
When you first start your TomTom GO navigation device, the device may need a few minutes to determine your GPS position and show your current position on the map. In future,
your position will be found much faster, usually within a few seconds.
To ensure good GPS reception, you should use your device outdoors. Large objects such
as tall buildings can sometimes interfere with reception.
About MyTomTom

and not into a USB hub or USB port on a keyboard or monitor.
Once the TomTom driver is installed, you can access MyTomTom from the notification
area on your desktop.
Tip: When you connect your navigation device to your computer, MyTomTom tells you if
there are any updates for your device.
Device not starting
In rare cases, your TomTom GO navigation device may not start correctly or may stop
responding to your taps.
First, check that the battery is properly charged. To charge the battery, connect your
device to the car charger. It can take up to 2 hours to fully charge the battery.

and not into a USB hub or USB port on a keyboard or monitor.
Safety Notice
Your TomTom navigation device contains a GSM/GPRS module which can interfere with
electrical devices such as cardiac pacemakers, hearing aids and aviation equipment.
Interference with these devices may endanger the health or life of others.
Do not use near unprotected electrical units or in areas where the use of mobile telephones is prohibited, such as hospitals and airplanes.
Take care of your navigation device
Never leave your TomTom GO or accessories on view when you leave the car as they may
become an easy target for thieves.
It is important to take care of your device:
• Your device is not designed for use in extreme temperatures and any such exposure
may cause permanent damage. Extended exposure to sun light may lead to early deterioration in battery performance.
• Do not open the casing of your device under any circumstances. Doing so may be dangerous and will invalidate the warranty.
• Wipe or dry the screen of your device using a soft cloth. Do not use any liquid cleaners.

time.
Tap YES to enter a preferred arrival time.
Your GO calculates your arrival time and shows you whether you will arrive on time.
You can also use this information to work out when you need to leave. If your GO shows
that you will arrive 30 minutes early, you can wait and leave in 30 minutes time, rather than
arrive early.
Your arrival time is constantly recalculated during your journey. The status bar shows
whether you will arrive on time or if you are going to be late, as shown below:
You will arrive 55 minutes before the arrival time you entered.
If the estimated arrival time is more than five minutes before the time
you entered, it is shown in green.
You will arrive 3 minutes before the arrival time you entered.

Planning a route in advance
You can use your TomTom GO to plan a route in advance, selecting your starting point
and your destination.
Here are some more reasons to plan a route in advance:
• Find out how long a journey is going to take before you start.
You can also compare journey times for the same route at different times of the day or
on different days of the week. Your GO uses IQ Routes when planning a route. IQ Routes
calculates routes based on the real average speeds measured on roads.
• Study the route of a journey you are planning.
• Check a route for someone who is coming to visit you and then explain the route to
them in detail.
To plan a route in advance, follow these steps:
1. Tap the screen to bring up the Main menu.
2. Tap the arrow button to move to the next menu screen and tap Plan route.
This button is shown while there is no planned route on your GO.
Prepare route
3. Select the starting point for your journey in the same way that you would select your
destination.
4. Set the destination for your journey.
5. Choose the type of route that should be planned.
• Fastest route - the route which takes the least time.
• Eco route - the most fuel-efficient route for your journey.
• Shortest route - the shortest distance between the locations you set. This may not
be the quickest route, especially if the shortest route is through a town or city.
• Avoid motorways - a route which avoids motorways.
• Walking route - a route designed for making the journey on foot.
• Bicycle route - a route designed for making the journey on a bicycle.
6. Choose the date and time that you will make the journey you are planning.
Your GO uses IQ Routes to work out the best possible route at that time. This is useful
to see how long a journey takes at different times of the day or on different days of the
week.
7. Your TomTom GO plans the route between the two locations you selected.
Viewing route information
You can access these options for the route you last planned by tapping View route in the

5. Voice control
Voice
control
About voice control
Instead of tapping the screen to control your TomTom GO, you can use your voice to control your GO.
For example, to increase the volume on your GO, you can say, "Increase volume."
To view the list of available commands, tap Help in the Main menu then tap Product manuals and then tap What can I say?
Important: Voice control requires a computer voice. When there are no computer voices
installed on your TomTom GO, this feature is not available.
To select a computer voice, tap Voices in the Settings menu, then tap Change voice and
select a computer voice.
Using voice control
To enable voice control and show the button in the Driving view, tap Make your own
menu in the Settings menu and select the checkbox for Voice control.
To switch off voice control and remove the button from the Driving view, tap Make your
own menu in the Settings menu and clear the checkbox for Voice control.
The following example shows how to use voice control to plan a journey to your Home
address.
1. Tap the microphone button in the Driving view to turn on the microphone.
The microphone monitor is shown on the right-hand side of the screen.
2. When you hear the tone, say, "Navigate to Home".
While you are speaking the microphone monitor shows how well the device can hear
your voice:
A green bar means the device can hear your voice.
A red bar means your voice is too loud for the device to recognise individual words
and understand everything you say.
A grey bar means your voice is too quiet for the device to recognise individual
words and understand everything you say.
For some phrases, your GO repeats what you say and asks for confirmation.
3. If the command is correct, say, "Yes."
15
If the command is incorrect, say, "No" and repeat the command after you hear the tone.
Your GO plans a route from your current location to your Home address.
Tip: To stop your GO from listening out for further commands, say "Back" or "Cancel" or
"Quit" or simply tap the screen.
Planning a journey using your voice
Important: In the interest of safety and to reduce distractions while you are driving, you
should always plan a route before you start driving.
Note: It’s not possible to plan a route using your voice for all maps in all countries, or in
all languages.
To plan a route to an address using speech, do the following:
1. Tap the voice control button in the Driving view.
2. When you hear the tone, say, "Navigate to address".
3. Say the name of the town.
Your GO shows a list of towns which sound similar to what you said and
tells you which town is at the top of the list.
If the town you hear is the same as the town you requested then say, "Done" or "OK" or
"Yes" or "One" or tap the town at the top of the list.
If the town you hear is incorrect, but the correct town is in the list, say the number next
to the correct town or tap the name of the town.
For example, if the correct city is Rotterdam and this town is shown at the third item in
the list, you can say, "Three" or tap the name, Rotterdam.
If the name is not in the list, then say "Back" or "No" or tap Back to return to the previous
screen and say the town again when you hear the tone.
4. Say the streetname.
Your GO shows a list of streetnames which sound similar to what you said and tells you
which streetname is at the top of the list.
If the streetname you hear is the same as the streetname you requested then say,
"Done" or "OK" or "Yes" or "One" or tap the streetname at the top of the list.
16
Tip: Different locations may have the same name, such as a road that spans multiple postcodes. When this happens you need to look at the screen and tap the correct location.
If the street name you hear is incorrect, but the correct streetname is in the list, say the
number next to the correct streetname or tap the streetname in the list.
If the streetname is not shown in the list, say "Back" or "No" or tap Back to return to the
previous screen and then say the streetname again when you hear the tone.
5. Say the house number.
Important: Numbers need to been spoken in the same language as the button names and
menus on your TomTom GO.
Numbers should be pronounced in the same way you normally say a number, in one
continuous sentence. So 357 is pronounced, "Three hundred and fifty seven."
If the number is shown correctly then say, "Done" or "OK" or tap the keyboard to enter
the number.
If the number is shown incorrectly then say, "Back" or "No" or tap the Backspace key and
repeat the number.
Tip: If you say, "Back" when there are no numbers on the screen, your GO will return you
to the previous screen.
When the number is shown correctly say, "Done" or "OK." Alternatively, enter the
number by tapping the screen.
6. When the route has been calculated and the route summary is shown, tap Done.
Your TomTom GO starts to guide you to your destination, using spoken instructions
and onscreen directions.
Entering addresses using your voice
Important: In the interest of safety and to reduce distractions while you are driving, you
should always plan a route before you start driving.
Even if you don’t use voice control to start planning a journey, you can still use your voice
to enter the address.
To start planning a journey tap Navigate to... in the Main menu, then tap Address.
17
To enter the destination using your voice, tap one of the following buttons:
Tap this button to enter an address entirely using speech.

• Streetnames.
• Cities and towns and their centres.
• Favourites, postcodes and POIs.
• Plan alternative route, Recalculate original, Avoid roadblock, Minimise delays, Clear route, Travel via... and Recent destination.
• Numbers. These should be pronounced in the same way you normally say a number, in one continuous sentence. So 357 is pronounced, "Three hundred and fifty seven."
Tap this button at the base of the keyboard to use speech to enter an
address. When the button is gresy, you cannot use speech to enter
an address.
This button is available for the for the following types of destination:

and
voices
About sounds and voices
Your TomTom GO uses sound for the following:
• Driving directions and other route instructions
• Warnings that you set
• Hands-free phone calls
There are two types of voice available for your GO:
• Computer voices
Computer voices are generated by your GO. They provide route instructions and read
aloud city and street names, traffic and weather reports, user messages and tutorials.
• Human voices
These are recorded by an actor and only provide route instructions.
About computer voices
Your TomTom GO uses text-to-speech technology and computer voices to read the street
names on your map as it guides you on your route.
The computer voice analyses the whole phrase or sentence before speaking, to ensure
that the sentence sounds as close as possible to natural speech.
Computer voices can recognise and pronounce foreign towns and street names. For
example, the English computer voice can read and pronounce French street names.
Important: Computer voices are not available in all languages.
If you require a computer voice and your langauge is unavailable, then you need to install
and use the English language computer voice. For more information on computer voices,
go to tomtom.com/services.

Using Traffic information
The traffic sidebar is shown on the right side of the Driving view. The sidebar informs you
about traffic delays while you drive, using glowing dots to show you where each traffic
incident is located on your route.
The top of the traffic sidebar represents your destination and shows the
total time delay due to traffic jams and other incidents on your route.
The central section of the traffic sidebar shows individual traffic incidents in the order they occur on your route.
The bottom of the traffic sidebar represents your current location and
shows the distance to the next incident on your route.
To make the traffic sidebar more readable some incidents may not be
shown. These incidents will always be of minor importance and only
cause short delays.
The colour of the pointers, as shown below, gives you an instant indication of the type of
incident:
Unknown or undetermined situation.
Slow traffic.
Queueing traffic.
Stationary traffic or road closure.
Taking the fastest route
Your GO regularly looks for a faster route to your destination. If the traffic situation
changes and a faster route is found, your GO will offer to replan your journey so you can
use the faster route.
You can also set your GO to automatically replan your journey whenever a faster route is
found. To apply this setting, tap Traffic settings in the Traffic menu.
To manually find and replan the fastest route to your destination, do the following:

Tip: If you find that tapping the sidebar opens the Main menu instead of the traffic menu,
try tapping the sidebar with your finger resting on the edge of the screen.
2. Tap Minimise delays.
Your GO searches for the fastest route to your destination.
The new route may include traffic delays. You can replan the route to avoid all traffic
delays, but a route which avoids all delays will usually take longer than the fastest route.
3. Tap Done.

Important Safety Notices and Warnings
Global Positioning System
The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a satellite-based system that provides location and
timing information around the globe. GPS is operated and controlled under the sole
responsibility of the Government of the United States of America which is responsible for
its availability and accuracy. Any changes in GPS availability and accuracy, or in environmental conditions, may impact the operation of your TomTom device. TomTom does not
accept any liability for the availability and accuracy of GPS.
Use with Care
Use of a TomTom device for navigation still means that you need to drive with due care
and attention.
Aircraft and Hospitals
Use of devices with an antenna is prohibited on most aircraft, in many hospitals and in
many other locations. A TomTom device must not be used in these environments.
Taking care of your TomTom device
Do not leave your TomTom device or TomTom accessories on view when you leave your
car. They may become an easy target for thieves.
We recommend that you use the safety preferences on your TomTom device, where available. The safety preferences are available in the Preferences menu.
Take care of your TomTom device and clean it correctly.
• Use a soft cloth to wipe the screen of your device; do not use any liquid cleaners.
• If your device gets wet, dry it with a soft cloth.
• Do not open the casing of your device under any circumstances. Doing so may be dangerous and will invalidate your warranty.
• If your device includes a memory card, do not use the memory card with any device
other than a TomTom device. Other devices may damage the memory card.
• Do not expose your device to high or low temperatures, which can cause permanent
damage. For example, don’t leave it in the car on hot summer days or during cold winter
nights.
Battery
This product uses a Lithium-Polymer battery. Do not use it in a humid, wet and/or corrosive environment. Do not put, store or leave your product in or near a heat source, in a
high temperature location, in strong direct sunlight, in a microwave oven or in a pressurized container, and do not expose it to temperatures over 60 C (140 F). Failure to follow
these guidelines may cause the Lithium-Polymer battery to leak acid, become hot, explode
80
or ignite and cause injury and/or damage. Do not pierce, open or disassemble the battery.
If the battery leaks and you come into contact with the leaked fluids, rinse thoroughly with
water and seek medical attention immediately. For safety reasons, and to prolong the lifetime of the battery, charging will not occur at low (below 0 C/32 F) or high (over 45 C/

Caution: risk of explosion if battery is replaced by an incorrect type.
Do not remove or attempt to remove the non-user-replaceable battery. If you have a problem with the battery, please contact TomTom customer support.
THE LITHIUM-POLYMER BATTERY CONTAINED IN THE PRODUCT MUST BE
RECYCLED OR DISPOSED OF PROPERLY ACCORDING TO THE LOCAL LAWS
