Car dock
Push your TomTom navigation module into the car dock in your car. To remove your navigation module from the car dock, press the release button on the car dock. Your dealer
can install the car dock and connect it to the Sony XNV.
The display of the Sony XNV is also used as the navigation module display. Use the Sony
XNV touch screen to operate your navigation module.
Switching on and off
The TomTom navigation module switches on simultaneously with the Sony XNV. Select
Navi in the main menu of the Sony XNV.
Until a connection has been established between the Sony XNV and the navigation module, "waiting for Navi connection" is displayed. In the case of a cold boot of the navigation
module, the start-up image of the module is visible as soon as a connection has been
established.
Under extreme temperature conditions or if the battery of the navigation module is empty,
a warning screen will be displayed. The module will start up as soon as the battery temperature is within specifications and the battery is charged sufficiently.
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 navigation module, 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 navigation
module, 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 module to MyTomTom, to ensure you always have the latest updates.

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. Connect your device to your computer using the USB cable.
Your device is then recognized, and possible updates are offered.
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.
Once the MyTomTom support application is installed on your computer, you can access
MyTomTom from the system tray on your computer.
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 navigation module may not start correctly or may stop
responding to your taps.
The battery may not be charged enough. The battery charges when the navigation module
is docked in the car dock and the Sony XNV is powered, or when the module is connected
to the computer. The screen shows a warning if there is a problem with the battery.
The battery temperature may be too high or too low. Also in this case the screen shows a
warning. The navigation module will start-up if the battery temperature is within the specifications.
If the battery is charged but navigation is still not available, you may need to reset the navigation module. To reset your navigation module, first remove it from the car dock by
pressing the release button. Then press the reset button on the back of the navigation
module for at least 10 seconds. Push the navigation module back into the car dock.

Charging your TomTom navigation module
The LED on the navigation module is red while the battery is charging, and is green when
it is fully charged.
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 navigation module 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 sunlight may lead to early deterioration of battery performance.
• Do not open the casing of your device under any circumstances. Doing so may be dangerous and will void the warranty.

Using arrival times
When you plan a route, your TomTom navigation module asks you if you need to arrive
at a particular time.
Tap YES to enter a preferred arrival time.
Your navigation module 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 navigation
module 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.
10
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.

Planning a route in advance
You can use your TomTom navigation module 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 trip is going to take before you start.
You can also compare trip times for the same route at different times of the day or on
different days of the week. Your navigation module 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 trip 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 Plan route.
This button is shown while there is no planned route on your navigation module.
Prepare route
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. 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 trip.
• 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 highways - a route which avoids highways.
6. Choose the date and time that you will make the trip you are planning.
Your navigation module 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.
7. Your TomTom navigation module 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.

About sounds and voices
The front speaker of the Sony XNV is used to play sounds and voices from the TomTom
navigation module.Your TomTom navigation module uses sound for the following:
• Driving directions and other route instructions
• Warnings that you set
There are two types of voice available for your navigation module:
• Computer voices
Computer voices are generated by your navigation module. 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 navigation module 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 recognize and pronounce foreign towns and street names. For
example, the English computer voice can read and pronounce French street names.
Important:
If you require a computer voice and your language 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.

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.
Taking care of your TomTom device
Do not leave your TomTom device or TomTom accessories in 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.
• 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.
• 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-Ion 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-Ion battery to leak acid, become hot, explode 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/113 F) temperatures.
