Installing in your car
Your TomTom Start navigation device has an integrated mount. See the printed installation poster
included with your product for more information.
To install your device, do the following:
1. Make sure that both the integrated mount and your windscreen 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 mount firmly against the windscreen on an area where the glass is
flat.
Important: Place the integrated 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 Start 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
MyTomTom helps you manage the contents and services of your TomTom Start 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 Start 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 Start 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 Start 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 early deterioration in
battery performance.
ƒ
Do not open the casing of your device under any circumstances. Doing so may be dangerous
and will invalidate 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
Any airbags
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 windscreen 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 Dashboard Mount 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.

speaking to your Start.
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 streetname.
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.

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.
12
To plan a different route, tap Change route.
Your TomTom Start starts to guide you to your destination, using spoken instructions and onscreen directions.

The route summary shows an overview of your route, the remaining distance to your destination
and the remaining estimated journey 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 followed by Planning 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
Walking route - a route designed for making the journey on foot.
ƒ
Bicycle route - a route designed for making the journey on a bicycle.
Frequent destinations
If you often make trips to the same destinations, you can set your TomTom Start 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 Start 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.

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 Start 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 Start asks you if you need to arrive at a particular time.
Tap YES to enter a preferred arrival time. Your Start 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 Start 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.
If the estimated arrival time is later than the time you entered, it is shown
in red.

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 Start 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 journey is going to take before you start.
ƒ
You can also compare journey times for the same route at different times of the day or on
different days of the week. Your Start 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 journey 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 Start.
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. 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 journey.
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.
17
ƒ
Avoid motorways - a route which avoids motorways.
ƒ
Walking route - a route designed for making the journey on foot.
ƒ
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 Start 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.
Your TomTom Start 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

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 Start,
connect the TomTom RDS-TMC Traffic Receiver to the USB connector on your Start.
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.
57
Queueing traffic.
Stationary traffic or road closure.
Taking the fastest route
Your Start regularly looks for a faster route to your destination. If the traffic situation changes and
a faster route is found, your Start will offer to replan your journey so you can use the faster route.
You can also set your Start 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:
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 Minimise delays.
Your Start 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.
58
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.
Minimising delays
You can use TomTom Traffic to minimise the impact of traffic delays on your route. To minimise
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 Minimise 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 lets 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.
59
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
To check for delays on your route, tap Show traffic on route in the Traffic menu. Your navigation
device shows a summary of the traffic delays on your route.
The total includes any delays due to traffic incidents and those due to busy roads, with
information provided by IQ Routes.
Tap Minimise delays to check if you can reduce the delay.
60
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 queue, the
direction of the incident is from the icon towards the other end.
