Installing in your car
Your TomTom VIA navigation device has an integrated mount. See the printed installation
instructions included with your product for more information.
To install your device, do the following:
1. Make sure that both the windshield mount and your windshield are clean and dry.
2. Plug the USB car charger into the power supply on your dashboard.
3. Connect the USB cable to the car charger and your TomTom device.
4. Press the suction cup of the windshield mount firmly against the windshield on an area where
the glass is flat.
Important: Place the windshield mount so that it does not interfere with your view of the
road or of any of the controls in your car.
5. Twist the rubber grip near the base of the mount in a clockwise direction until you hear a click.
Your navigation device is now installed. The next step is to switch it on and answer a few set-up
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 VIA navigation device, the device may need a few minutes to
determine your GPS position and show your current position on the map. In the 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
MyTomTom helps you manage the contents and services of your TomTom VIA 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.
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.
8
Device not starting
In rare cases, your TomTom VIA 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 for 15 seconds and release the button when your device begins to restart.
Charging your device
The battery in your TomTom VIA 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.
Take care of your navigation device
Never leave your TomTom VIA 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:
ƒ
Your device is not designed for use in extreme temperatures and any such exposure may
cause permanent damage. Extended exposure to sunlight may lead to premature degradation
of battery performance.
ƒ
Do not open the casing of your device under any circumstances. Doing so may be dangerous
and will void the warranty.
ƒ
Wipe or dry the screen of your device using a soft cloth. Do not use any liquid cleaners.
9
Safety
Positioning the mount
Consider carefully where to attach the mount in your car. The mount should not block or interfere
with any of the following:
ƒ
Your view of the road
ƒ
Any of the controls in your car
ƒ
Any of your mirrors
ƒ
The airbag
When your navigation device is in the mount, you should be able to reach the device easily
without leaning or stretching. You can attach the mount to the windshield or side window or you
can use a Dashboard Mount Disk to attach the mount to your dashboard. 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 Adhesive Disks and alternative mounting solutions, go to
tomtom.com/accessories.
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:
ƒ
Show essential menu buttons while driving
ƒ
Show safety reminders
ƒ
Warn when driving faster than allowed
If your device supports voice commands, you can also drive more safely by using voice
commands to control your navigation device.
10
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.
To plan a route on your TomTom VIA, do the following:
1. Tap the screen to open the Main menu.
2. Tap Navigate to or Drive to.
3. Tap Address.
You can change the country or state setting by tapping the flag before you select a city.
4. Enter the town or city name.
Tip: Instead of typing the address, tap the microphone button to enter the address by
speaking to your VIA.
Towns with similar names are shown in the list while you type.
When the correct city or town appears in the list, tap the name to select the destination.
11
5. Enter the street name.
Streets with similar names are shown in the list while you type.
When the correct street name appears in the list, tap the name to select the destination.
6. Enter the house number, then tap Done.
7. The location is shown on the map. Tap Select to continue or tap Back to enter another
address.
Tip: If you want your final destination to be a parking lot, tap Park nearby and select a
location from the list of parking lots close to your general destination.
8. When the new route is shown, tap Done.
For more information about the route, tap Details.
12
To plan a different route, tap Change route.
Your TomTom VIA starts to guide you to your destination, using spoken instructions and onscreen directions.
Route summary
The route summary shows an overview of your route, the remaining distance to your destination
and the remaining estimated trip time.
To view the route summary, tap the right-hand panel on the status bar in the Driving view or tap
View route in the Main menu and then tap Show route summary.
If you have a TomTom Traffic service or an RDS-TMC receiver, the route summary also shows
traffic information about delays on your route.
13
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 and then tap Ask me every time I plan.
The types of route you can choose from are as follows:
ƒ
Fastest route - the route which takes the least time.
ƒ

ƒ
Bicycle route - a route designed for making the trip on a bicycle.
Frequent destinations
If you often make trips to the same destinations, you can set your TomTom VIA 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.
To select a new destination, tap Start-up settings in the Settings menu and select Ask for a
destination. Select a button to use for this destination and answer the questions about the
destination.
14
Show my frequent destinations
You can set your TomTom VIA to ask if you want to plan a route to one of your frequently visited
destinations every time the device starts.
To change this setting, do the following:
1. Tap Start-up settings 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 TomTom VIA starts, you are asked if you want to plan a route. If you tap Cancel,
you are shown the Main Menu.
Using arrival times
When you plan a route, your TomTom VIA asks you if you need to arrive at a particular time.
Tap YES to enter a preferred arrival time.
Your VIA 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 VIA 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 trip. 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.
If the estimated arrival time is later than the time you entered, it is shown in
red.
15
Tap Status bar settings in the Settings menu, to enable or disable arrival
time notifications.
To enable arrival time notifications, select Leeway.

Planning a route in advance
You can use your TomTom VIA to plan a route in advance, selecting your starting point and your
destination.
Here are some more reasons to plan a route in advance:
ƒ
Find out how long a trip is going to take before you start.
ƒ
You can also compare trip times for the same route at different times of the day or on different
days of the week. Your VIA uses IQ Routes when planning a route. IQ Routes calculates routes
based on the real average speeds measured on roads.
ƒ
Study the route of a trip you are planning.
ƒ
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 VIA.
3. Select the starting point for your trip in the same way that you would select your destination.
4. Set the destination for your trip.
5. If Planning settings are set to Ask me every time I plan, select the type of route you want to
plan:
ƒ
Fastest route - the route which takes the least time.
ƒ
Eco route - the most fuel-efficient route for your trip.
ƒ
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.
ƒ
Avoid highways - a route which avoids highways.
17
ƒ
Walking route - a route designed for making the trip on foot.
ƒ
Bicycle route - a route designed for making the trip on a bicycle.
6. Choose the date and time that you will make the trip you are planning.
Your VIA uses IQ Routes to work out the best possible route at that time. This is useful to see how
long a trip takes at different times of the day or on different days of the week.
Your TomTom VIA 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 Main
Menu or the Details button on the route summary screen.

Voice control
About voice control
Note: Voice control is not supported on all devices or in all languages.
Instead of tapping the screen to control your TomTom VIA, you can use your voice to control your
VIA.
For example, to increase the volume on your VIA, 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 to say.
Important: Voice control requires a voice that speaks street names. When there are no voices that
speak street names installed on your TomTom VIA, this feature is not available.
To select a voice that speaks street names, tap Voices in the Settings menu, then tap Change
voice and select a voice that speaks street names.
Using voice control
Voice control is switched on by default if it is supported for your chosen language.
To switch off voice control and remove the button from the Driving view, tap Voice control in the
Settings menu and select Disable voice control.
The following example shows how to use voice control to plan a trip to your Home address:
1. Tap the microphone button in the Driving view to turn on the microphone.
You see a screen with examples of commands you can say.
Tap What to say to see a full list of commands you can say. Alternatively, tap Settings in the
Main menu then tap Voice control and then tap What to say.
2. When you hear "Say a command" followed by a tone, say a command of your choice. For
example, you can say "Drive home." Your VIA is only ready to listen after your hear the tone.
While you are speaking the microphone monitor shows how well the device can hear your
voice:
20
A green bar means the device can hear your voice.
A red bar means your voice is too loud for the device to recognize
individual words and understand everything you say.
A gray bar means your voice is too quiet for the device to recognize
individual words and understand everything you say.
For some phrases, your VIA repeats what you say and asks for confirmation.
Tip: For the best recognition of what you say, speak normally without trying to articulate
words in an unnatural way.
3. If the command is correct, say, "Yes."
If the command is incorrect, say, "No" and repeat the command after you hear the prompt and
tone again.
Your VIA plans a route from your current location to your destination.
Tip: To stop your VIA from listening for further commands, say "Cancel." To go back one step,
say "Back."
Planning a trip using your voice
Note: It's not possible to plan a route using your voice for all maps in all countries, or in all
languages.
You can navigate to any of the following types of places using your voice:
ƒ
An address, including home.
ƒ
Cities and towns and their centers.
ƒ
Favorites.
ƒ
POI categories.
ƒ
POIs for named brands of, for example, restaurants, gas stations, car rental companies and
gyms.
ƒ
A recent destination.
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, you can say, for example "Drive to an address."
21
Tip: Your device has either Navigate to or Drive to on the button in the Main Menu. When
planning a route to an address using speech, say "Navigate to address" if the button shows
Navigate to or "Drive to address" if the button shows Drive to.
3. Say the full address for your destination, for example, 112 Main Street, Riverside, California.
Numbers can be pronounced naturally or one at a time. For example, 357 can be pronounced
as "Three fifty seven" or "Three, five, seven."
Your VIA tells you what it heard.
4. Say "Yes" if the address is correct. If shown a list of addresses, say the list number for the
correct address or say "none of these."
If part of the address is incorrect, you can say something like "change the number," "change
the street," "change the city" or "change the state" to correct the incorrect part.
To begin again, say "start over."
Tip: You may want to limit the search area for addresses to one state if you drive within the
same state most of the time. To change the search area for addresses, tap Settings in the
Main menu then tap Voice control and then tap Set address search area.
Your TomTom VIA starts to guide you to your destination, using spoken instructions and onscreen directions.
Tips:
You can also use your voice to search for the nearest Point of interest (POI) category or a
popular brand name by saying something like "Drive to the nearest doctor" or "Drive to the
nearest Starbucks."
To select a Recent destination or a Favorite, say "Drive to a recent destination" or "Drive to a
Favorite."
Entering addresses using your voice
Even if you don't use voice control to start planning a trip, you can still use your voice to enter the
address.
To start planning a trip tap Navigate to or Drive to in the Main menu, then tap Address, and then
Spoken Address.
Tap this button to enter an address entirely using speech.
Spoken address helps you to enter information without tapping the screen.
Spoken address
22
Tips
ƒ
To directly access driving to an address, tap Make your own menu in the Settings menu and
tap Drive to spoken address.

using local pronunciation.
ƒ
Spoken address entry is not possible for postal codes which must be entered using the
keyboard.

Calling a POI
Note: Hands-free calling is not supported on all devices.
Many of the POIs on your TomTom VIA include phone numbers. This means that if your device
supports hands-free calling, you can use your VIA to call the POI and plan a route to the location
of the POI. If your device doesn't support hands-free calling, you can still get the phone number of
POI from your TomTom navigation device and then call the POI using another phone or device.
For example, you can search for a movie theater, call to reserve a ticket and plan a route to the
movie theater, and all using your VIA.
1. Tap the phone button in the Driving view.
If the button is not visible in the Driving view, tap Make your own menu in the Settings menu
and select Call... to display the button in the Driving view.
2. Tap Point of Interest.
3. Select how you want to search for the POI.
For example, if you want to search for a POI on your route, tap POI along route.
4. Tap the type of POI you want to call.
For example, if you want to call a cinema to reserve a ticket, tap Cinema and then select the
name of the cinema you want to call. Then tap Call or Dial to make the phone call.
Your VIA uses your mobile phone to call the POI.
Setting warnings for POIs
You can set a warning sound or message to be played or displayed when you approach a selected
type of POI, such as a gas station.
The following example will show how to set a warning sound to be played when you are 250
yards from a gas station.
1. Tap Manage POIs or Warn when near POI in the settings menu.
2. Scroll down the list and tap Gas station.
Tip: To remove a warning, tap on the category name and then tap Yes. POI categories which
have been set with a warning have a sound symbol next to the category name.
3. Set the distance as 250 yards and tap OK.
4. Select Sound effect and then tap Next.
5. Select the warning sound for the POI and then tap Next.

6. If you only want to hear the warning when the POI is directly on a planned route, select Warn
only if POI is on route. Then tap Done.
The warning is set for the selected POI category. You will hear a warning sound when you are
250 yards from a gas station on your route.
Manage POIs
Tap Manage POIs to manage your POI categories and locations.
You can set your VIA to let you know when you are near to selected POI locations. In this way you
could, for example, set the device to let you know you when you are approaching a gas station.
You can create your own POI categories and add your own POI locations to these categories.
This means you can, for example, create a new POI category called Friends. You could then add
all your friends' addresses as POIs in this new category.
Tap the following buttons to create and maintain your own POIs:

Traffic
About RDS-TMC
The Traffic Message Channel (TMC), also known as RDS-TMC, transmits traffic information as a
radio signal and is available free of charge in many countries.
TMC is not a TomTom Service, but is available when using the TomTom RDS-TMC Traffic
Receiver.
Note: TomTom is not responsible for the availability or quality of traffic information provided by
the Traffic Message Channel.
The Traffic Message Channel (TMC) is not available in all countries. To check the availability of
TMC services in your country, go to tomtom.com/5826.
Using traffic information
If you are using an RDS-TMC receiver to view TMC traffic information on your TomTom VIA,
connect the TomTom RDS-TMC Traffic Receiver to the USB connector on your VIA.
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 color of the pointers, as shown below, gives you an instant indication of the type of incident:
Unknown or undetermined situation.
Slow traffic.
64
Developing traffic jam.
Stationary traffic or road closure.
Taking the fastest route
Your VIA regularly looks for a faster route to your destination. If the traffic situation changes and a
faster route is found, your VIA will offer to replan your trip so you can use the faster route.
You can also set your VIA to automatically replan your trip 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:
1. Tap the traffic sidebar.
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 Minimize delays.
Your VIA 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.
Setting the radio frequency for RDS-TMC information
Note: Not all devices support setting the radio frequency.
If you know the frequency of a particular radio station you want to use for RDS-TMC traffic
information, you can set the frequency manually. To activate this feature, you must first enable
manual tuning as follows:
1. Tap the Traffic bar in the Driving View, then tap Traffic settings.
2. Select Tune manually by entering a frequency and then tap Done.
Now you can enter the frequency of the radio station.
3. Tap the Traffic sidebar in the Driving View.
4. Tap Tune Manually.
5. Enter the frequency of the radio station.
6. Tap Done.
65
Your TomTom navigation device looks for your radio station. If it doesn't find a radio station at the
frequency you set, it automatically continues to search for the next available station.
Minimizing delays
You can use TomTom Traffic to minimize the impact of traffic delays on your route. To minimize
delays automatically, do the following:
1. Tap Services in the Main Menu.
2. Tap Traffic.
3. Tap Traffic settings.
4. Choose between always taking the faster route automatically, being asked or never changing
your route.
5. Tap Next and then Done.
6. Tap Minimize traffic delay.
Your device plans the quickest route to your destination. The new route may include traffic
delays and may remain the same as the original route.
You can re-plan the route to avoid all delays, but this route is unlikely to be the quickest
possible route.
7. Tap Done.
Making commuting to work easier
The Home to work or Work to home buttons in the Traffic menu let you check your route to and
from work with one tap of a button.
When you use either of these buttons, your device plans a route between your home and work
locations and checks the route for possible delays.
The first time you use Home to work, you must set your traffic home and work locations by doing
the following:
1. Tap the traffic sidebar to open the Traffic menu.
2. Tap Show home-work traffic.
3. Set your home location and your work location.
If you have already set the locations and want to change them, tap Change home-work.
You can now use the Home to work and Work to home buttons.
66
Note: The home location you set here is not the same as the home location you can set in the
Settings Menu. In addition, the locations you use here do not have to be your actual home and
work locations. If there is another route that you often travel, you can set Work/Home to use
these locations instead.
For example, to check for delays on your route home before you leave the office, do the following:
1. Tap the traffic sidebar to open the Traffic menu.
2. Tap Show home-work traffic.
3. Tap Work to home.
The Driving View is shown and a message is displayed telling you about traffic incidents on this
route. The Traffic sidebar also shows any delays.
Getting more information about an incident

Tap the left and right arrow buttons to move through each incident in turn, viewing the details of
each one. This includes the type of incident, for example road works, and the length of delay
caused by this incident.
You can also access the details about individual incidents by tapping View map in the Main Menu
and then tapping on the traffic incident symbol.
When shown on the map, a traffic incident starts with an icon. In the case of a traffic jam, the
