Positioning the device
Consider carefully where to install your TomTom navigation device in your car. The navigation
device should not block or interfere with any of the following:

Your view of the road

Any of the controls in your car

Any of your mirrors

Any airbags
When your navigation device is installed, you should be able to reach the device easily without
leaning or stretching. You can attach the device to the windscreen or you can use a Dashboard
Mount Disk to attach the mount to your dashboard. Dashboard Mount Disks are included with
some products and are available as accessories. The following diagrams show where you can
safely attach the mount.
TomTom also offers alternative mounting solutions for your TomTom navigation device. For more
information about Dashboard Mount Disks and alternative mounting solutions, go to
tomtom.com/accessories.
Installing in your car
Use the mount provided with your device to install your TomTom device in your vehicle. You can
attach your device to your windscreen or use a Dashboard Mount Disk to attach your device to
your dashboard. See the printed installation instructions included with your product for more information. Read the instructions about positioning your device before you install your device.
To install your device, do the following:
1. Choose the best location to mount your TomTom device. The location should be as smooth as
possible.
2. If you are using the Dashboard Mounting Disk, clean the dashboard and install the disk.
3. Make sure that both the suction cup on the mount and your windscreen or disk are clean and
dry.
4. Press the suction cup of the mount firmly against your windscreen or disk.
5. Turn the rubber grip near the base of the mount in a clockwise direction until you feel it lock.
8
6. If your mount is not integrated into your device, place your device in the mount, making sure
that it clicks into place.
7. Plug the USB car charger into the power supply on your dashboard.
8. Connect the USB cable to the car charger and your device.
Your navigation device is now installed. The next step is to switch it on and answer a few questions.
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, you have to hold the button down for up to 15
seconds.
Setting up
Important: Take care to select the correct language as the language you choose will be used for
all text on the screen.
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 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 and keep your device upright. Large objects such as tall buildings can sometimes interfere with reception. GPS reception
can also be affected if the device is placed flat on a surface or held flat in your hand.
Micro-SD card slot
Some types of TomTom navigation devices have a micro-SD card slot that is located on the side
or on the bottom of the device.
Before you use the memory card slot, make sure that you have the latest version of the application
installed on your navigation device by connecting to MyTomTom. When your device is up-to-date,
you can use a memory card as extra storage space to add extra maps to your device. Maps can be
purchased from tomtom.com.
About MyTomTom
MyTomTom helps you manage the contents and services of your TomTom navigation device, as
well as giving you access to the TomTom community. You log in to MyTomTom on the TomTom
website. It is a good idea to frequently connect your navigation device to MyTomTom to ensure
you always have the latest updates.
9
Tip: We recommend using a broadband internet connection whenever you connect your navigation device to MyTomTom.
Setting up MyTomTom
To set up MyTomTom, do the following:
1. Connect your computer to the internet.
2. Start a browser and go to tomtom.com/getstarted.
3. Click Download now.
Your browser downloads the MyTomTom support application, which you need to install on
your computer in order to connect your device to MyTomTom. Follow the instructions on the
screen if you are asked questions while downloading.
4. When prompted, connect your device to your computer using the USB cable. Then switch
your device on.
Important: You should plug the USB cable directly into a USB port on your computer and not into
a USB hub or USB port on a keyboard or monitor.
Once the MyTomTom support application 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.
Safety settings
We recommend using the safety settings to make your driving as safe as possible.
These are some of the options included in the safety settings:

Show essential menu buttons while driving

Show safety reminders

Warn when driving faster than allowed
10
If your device supports voice control, you can also drive more safely by using voice control to
control your navigation device.
Device not starting
In rare cases, your TomTom navigation device may not start correctly or may stop responding to
your taps.
First, check that the battery is charged. To charge the battery, connect your device to the car
charger. It can take up to 2 hours to fully charge the battery.
If this does not solve the problem, you can reset the device. To do this, press and hold the On/Off
button until your device begins to restart.
Charging your device
The battery in your TomTom navigation device charges when you connect it to the car charger or
to your computer.
Important: You should plug the USB connector directly into a USB port on your computer and not
into a USB hub or USB port on a keyboard or monitor.
Sharing information with TomTom
When you first start navigating or perform a reset, your device asks for permission to collect some
information about your use of the navigation device. The information is stored on the device until
we retrieve it. We use it anonymously to improve our products and services. If you use LIVE services, we will also use your location information to deliver the services to you.
You can change whether you share this information with us at any time by doing the following:
1. In the Main Menu, tap Settings.
2. Tap Me and my device.
3. Tap My information.
4. Tap No to stop sharing or tap Yes to start sharing.
Note: If you choose not to share this information, you will no longer receive LIVE services. This
is because LIVE services need to send the location of your device to TomTom in order to receive the traffic information related to where you are. The end date of your subscription remains
the same, even if you do not share this information with us.
Additional information
Only if you give us your permission, your navigation device will continuously collect information
and send it to TomTom at regular intervals. The information is also stored on your device until you
connect it to your PC, then the information is sent to TomTom and deleted from your device. The
information includes details that identify the navigation device, details about routes and locations,
your MyTomTom account name and information entered while you were using the navigation
device.
11
TomTom uses this information to be able to deliver LIVE services to you and to improve the HD
Traffic service.
Within twenty minutes of switching off your navigation device, TomTom automatically and irreversibly destroys any information that allows identification of you or your device. This, now anonymous, information is used to improve TomTom’s products and services, such as maps, reports
on Points of Interest and average speeds driven. These products and services are also used by
government agencies and businesses.
Using your navigation device, you can join the MapShare Community, or report speed cameras or
danger zones. If you choose to use either of these services, your reports, that include location
information and your MyTomTom account name, are sent to TomTom and kept together with
your MyTomTom account. TomTom then uses your information to improve its maps and speed
cameras.
If you no longer allow sharing of information, none of the above information is sent to TomTom
and information previously stored on your device is deleted. You won’t be able to receive HD
Traffic or mobile speed camera locations, or use any other LIVE services.
TomTom will not give anyone else access to the information collected from your navigation device.
In choosing to provide TomTom with information you are helping to make driving better, specifically by improving maps, traffic flows and reducing congestion. We appreciate your help.
This navigation device uses a GSM network that contains location information about your navigation device. By law, the network operator may be required to retain this location and other information for law enforcement purposes and TomTom has no influence over this. If you disable information sharing the mobile network connection is not active and the network operator cannot
store location information.
If you think that your information is not being used for the purpose for which you have provided it
to TomTom, contact us at tomtom.com/support.
See our privacy policy at tomtom.com/privacy.
Safety Notice
Some navigation devices contain 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 you or others.
If your device includes a GSM/GPRS module, do not use it near unprotected electrical units or in
areas where the use of mobile telephones is prohibited, such as hospitals and aircraft.
Take care of your navigation device
It is important to take care of your device:

Do not open the casing of your device under any circumstances. Doing so may be dangerous
and will invalidate the warranty.
12

Wipe or dry the screen of your device using a soft cloth. Do not use any liquid cleaners.
Getting help to use your navigation device
You can get further help by going to tomtom.com/support.
For warranty information, go to tomtom.com/legal.

Planning a route
Planning a route
Important: In the interest of safety and to reduce distractions while you are driving, you should
always plan a route before you start driving.

Important: If you are planning a caravan or camper route and no specific route can be found,
you are asked if you want to use a car route instead. If you use a car route pay special attention to any route restrictions while driving.
15
Tip: If you want your final destination to be a car park, tap Car park and select a location
from the list of car parks close to your general destination.
8. When the new route is shown, tap Done.
For more information about the route, tap Details.
To change your route, for example, to travel via a particular location or to select a new destination, tap Change route.

available in all countries or regions. You may be able to use LIVE Services when travelling
abroad. For more information on available services, go to tomtom.com/services.
Alternative routes
Note: This feature is not available on all TomTom navigation devices.
17
Your TomTom device helps you reach your destination as quickly as possible by showing you a
faster alternative route when one is available.
To take the alternative route, tap the balloon at the top of the screen. If you don't want to follow
the alternative route, keep driving to continue to receive instructions for your original route.
Tip: The alternative route disappears when it is no longer faster than your original route or it is
too late for you to choose it.
To change how you are asked about alternative routes, tap Settings and then Route planning. Tap
Next until you reach Replanning settings.
Selecting a route type
Every time you plan a route, you can choose to be asked about the type of route you want to plan.
To do this, tap Settings followed by Route planning, then Route types. Tap Ask me every time I
plan.
If you are using a TomTom camper and caravan product, to choose the type of route you have to
set your vehicle type to Car. Tap Settings followed by Vehicle and routes, then Vehicle and route
types. Select Car as your vehicle type, then tap Ask me every time I plan.
18
Note: You can only choose to be asked about the type of route when you select a car as your
vehicle.
The types of route you can choose from are as follows:

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.

Walking route - a route designed for making the journey on foot.

Bicycle route - a route designed for making the journey on a bicycle.
Tap Next. If you selected Fastest route, you have to choose if you want to always avoid motorways.
Frequent destinations
If you often make trips to the same destinations, you can set your TomTom device to ask if you
want to plan a route to one of these locations every time the device starts. This is faster than planning a route in the normal way.
Show my frequent destinations
You can set your TomTom device to ask if you want to plan a route to one of your frequently visited destinations every time the device starts.
19
To change this setting, do the following:
1. Tap Start up in the Settings menu and then select Ask for a destination.
2. Tap Yes, then tap Yes again to begin entering information about the destination.
3. Select a symbol for the destination and tap Done to set the symbol, then tap Yes.
Tip: To add new destinations, select one of the numbered symbols and enter a name for the
new destination button.
4. Tap Yes and if required enter a new name, then tap Done.
5. Enter the address details in the same way you enter an address when planning a route, then
tap Done.
6. If you want to set more destinations, repeat the steps above. Otherwise, tap Done.
7. You are asked if you want to change the start-up image.
8. If you want to change the image, tap Yes then follow the instructions shown on the screen.
Otherwise, tap No.
Every time your device starts, you are asked if you want to plan a route. If you tap Cancel, the
Driving View opens.
Using arrival times
You can set your TomTom device to ask you if you need to arrive at a particular time when you
plan a route.
Tap Status bar in the Settings menu, to enable or disable arrival time
notifications.
To enable arrival time notifications, select Leeway.
Status bar
After planning a route, tap YES to enter a preferred arrival time.
Your device 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 device 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.
If the estimated arrival time is less than 5 minutes before the time you
entered, it is shown in yellow.
You will arrive 19 minutes late.
20
If the estimated arrival time is later than the time you entered, it is shown
in red.

location, enter 'swimming pool' and choose the best search result.
Planning a route in advance
You can use your TomTom device 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 device uses IQ Routes when planning a route. IQ Routes calculates routes based on the real average speeds measured on roads.


The Speed Cameras service warns you about the following roadside camera locations:

Speed camera locations.

Accident blackspot locations.

Mobile speed camera locations.

Average speed camera locations.

Traffic light camera locations.
Note: In France, no warnings are given for individual cameras or different types of camera. It is
only possible to warn about danger zones. Danger zones are areas where there may be cameras. It's possible to report or confirm the location of danger zones, but it's not possible to remove
them.
Danger zones in France
About danger zones
Since 3rd January 2012, it has been illegal to receive warnings about the position of fixed or mobile speed cameras when you are driving in France. To be compliant with this change in French
law, all types of speed camera locations and safety-related features are now reported as danger
zones.
In France, the TomTom Speed Cameras service is known as TomTom Danger Zones.
Danger zones may contain one or more speed cameras or a range of other driving hazards:

Specific locations are not available and a danger zone icon is shown instead as you approach
the zone.

The length of the zone depends on the road type at the current location and can be 300m,
2000m or 4000m.

The location of one or more speed cameras, if any, can be at any point within the zone.

If several cameras are close to each other, the warnings can be merged in a single longer
zone.
Important: Outside of France, you receive warnings about speed cameras. Inside France, you
receive warnings about danger zones. When you cross the border, the type of warning you receive changes.
96
Reporting a danger zone
Tap this button to report a danger zone. A confirmation screen appears.
Tap Yes to confirm the danger zone. A Thank you icon is shown on the
