Switching on and off
Install your TomTom ONE/XL/XXL navigation device in your car following the
instructions in the installation section at the start of this book.
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.
To set up your device you need to answer a few questions by tapping the
screen.
Device not starting
In rare cases, your TomTom ONE/XL/XXL navigation device may not start cor-
rectly or may stop responding to your taps.
First, check that the battery is properly charged. To charge the battery, con-
nect 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 TomTom ONE/XL/XXL
Before you use your ONE/XL/XXL for the first time, it’s a good idea to charge
it fully.
The battery in your TomTom ONE/XL/XXL navigation device charges when
you connect it to the car charger or to your computer.
There is no charging light on your ONE/XL/XXL. To check the battery status
and see when your ONE/XL/XXL is charging, switch on your device and tap
the bottom right-hand corner of the screen in the Driving View. The battery
status is shown on the next page.
When you connect your device to a computer, you are asked if you want to
connect to the computer. If you select No and then do not tap the screen
within three minutes, the device will automatically switch off. This happens so
that the battery can charge faster.
Note: 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.7
Battery notes
The battery in your TomTom ONE/XL/XXL navigation device charges when
you connect it to the car charger or to your computer.
When you connect your device to a computer, you are asked if you want to
connect to the computer. If you select No and then do not tap the screen
within three minutes, the device will automatically switch off. This happens so
that the battery can charge faster.
Note: 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.
GPS reception
When you first start your TomTom ONE/XL/XXL navigation device, the device
may need a few minutes to determine your GPS position and show your cur-
rent 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.
Take care of your device
Never leave your TomTom ONE/XL/XXL navigation device or accessories on
view when you leave the car as they may become an easy target for thieves.
You can set a password which must be entered every time you start your
device.
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.
• 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 liq-
uid cleaners.Safety 4.

Safety
Positioning the Active Dock
Consider carefully where to attach the dock in your car. The dock 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
• The airbag
When your navigation device is in the dock, you should be able to reach the
device easily without leaning or stretching. The diagrams show where you can
safely attach the dock.
You can attach the dock to the windscreen, side window or use a Dashboard
Mount Disk to attach the dock to your dashboard. TomTom also offers alter-
native mounting solutions for your TomTom navigation device. For more
information about Dashboard Mount Disks and alternative mounting solu-
tions, go to tomtom.com/accessories.
Installing the dock
Make sure that both the holder and your window are clean and dry.
1. Press the suction cup firmly against the window on an area where the glass
is flat.
2. Twist the base of the EasyPort holder in a clockwise direction to lock the
holder in place.
For detailed instructions, check the installation section at the start of this man-
ual.
Safety preferences
We recommend using the safety preferences to make your driving as safe as
possible. The safety preferences include, for example, the following options:
• Hide most menu options when driving
• Show safety reminders
• Warn when driving faster than allowedMaking your first journey 5.

Making your first journey
Planning a route with your TomTom ONE/XL/XXL navigation device is easy.
To plan a route, follow the steps below.
Important: For safety reasons, you should always plan a route before you
start your journey.
1. Tap the screen to bring up the Main Menu.
Note: The buttons on your navigation device are shown in full colour unless
a button is currently unavailable. For example, the button named Find alter-
native in the Main Menu is not available until you have planned a route.
2. Tap Navigate to…
3. Tap Address.
When you enter an address, you can choose from the following options:
• City centre – tap this button to set your destination as the centre of a city
or town.
• Street and house number – tap this button to set an exact address as your
destination.
• Postcode – tap this button to enter a postcode as your destination.10
Note: You can enter a postcode for any country. In some countries, postcodes
are detailed enough to identify a house on their own. In other countries you
can enter a postcode to identify a town or area. You will then have to enter a
street and house number.
• Crossing or intersection – tap this button to set your destination as the
point where two streets meet.
In this example, we will enter an address.
4. Tap Street and house number.
Note: When planning a trip for the first time your navigation device asks you
to choose a state or country. Your choice is saved and used for all routes you
plan.
You can change this setting at any time by tapping the flag.
5. Start to type the name of the town where you want to go.
As you type, the names of the towns that match what you have typed are
shown. When your destination appears in the list, tap the name of the town
to set the destination.
6. Start to type the street name. Tap the name when it is shown in the list.
As with the name of the town, the names of the streets that match what you
have typed are shown. When your destination appears in the list, tap the
name of the street to set the destination.
7. Enter the house number and then tap Done.11
8. Your navigation device asks if you need to arrive at a particular time. For this
exercise, tap NO.
The route is calculated by your device using IQ Routes
TM
.
IQ Routes is used to plan the best possible route using information about
the average speeds measured on the roads.
When the route has been calculated, tap Done.
Your TomTom ONE/XL/XXL navigation device begins to guide you to your
destination.
Arrival times
When you plan a route, your TomTom ONE/XL/XXL asks you if you need to
arrive at a particular time.
Tap YES to enter a preferred arrival time.
Your ONE/XL/XXL 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
ONE/XL/XXL 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.12
Other navigation options
When you tap Navigate to…, you can set your destination in many ways, not
just by entering the address. The other options are listed below:
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.
Status bar

arrival time notifications.

Planning a route in advance
You can use your ONE/XL/XXL to plan a route in advance, selecting your start-
ing 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 TomTom ONE/XL/XXL 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 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.
• Limited speed – a route for a vehicle which can only be driven at a limited
speed. You have to specify the maximum speed.
6. Choose when you will make the journey you are planning. There are three
options:
Latitude
Longitude
Tap this button to enter a destination using latitude and longitude values.
Position of
last stop
Tap this button to select your last recorded position, as your destination.
Prepare route14
• Now
• Specific date and time – you will be asked to enter the date and time.
• No specific date and time
If you select either Now or Specific date and time, your ONE/XL/XXL uses
IQ Routes to work out the best possible route at that time, using the real
average speeds measured on roads. In this way you can compare how long
a journey takes at different times of day, or on different days of the week.
7. Your TomTom ONE/XL/XXL plans the route between the two locations you
selected.

Finding alternative routes
Once you have planned a route, you may want to change something about the
route, without changing your destination.
Why change the route?
Maybe for one of these reasons:
• You can see a roadblock or a line of traffic ahead.
• You want to travel via a particular location, to pick someone up, stop for
lunch or fill up with petrol.
• You want to avoid a difficult junction or a road you don’t like.
Find alterna-
tive…
Tap Find alternative… in the Main Menu to change the route that is cur-
rently planned.
The Find alternative… button is also shown in the route summary screen
after you plan a route.
Calculate
alternative
Tap this button to calculate an alternative to the route already planned.
Your ONE/XL/XXL will look for another route from your current location to
your destination.
If you decide you would prefer to use the original route after all, tap Recal-
culate original.
Why would I need to do this?
Apart from the roads near your position and near your destination, the new
route will use totally different roads to reach your destination. This is an
easy way of calculating a totally different route.
Avoid
roadblock
T ap this button if you can see a roadblock or a line of traffic ahead. You then
have to choose how much of the route ahead you want to avoid.
Choose from the different options: 100m, 500m, 2000m, 5000m. Your ONE/
XL/XXL will recalculate your route avoiding the section of the route for the
distance you selected.
Don’t forget that once a new route is calculated, you may have to turn off
the road you are on very soon.
If the roadblock suddenly clears, tap Recalculate original to return to your
original route.18
Travel via…
Tap this button to change your route so that it passes a particular location,
perhaps to pick someone up on the way. When you do this, a marker is
shown on the map for the location you choose the travel via.
You choose the location you want to pass in the same way as you choose a
destination. So you can select from all the same options: for example,
Address, Favourite, Point of Interest and Point on map.
Your ONE/XL/XXL will calculate a new route to your destination that passes
the location you chose. Unlike your final destination, your ONE/XL/XXL
does not inform you when you pass by this location.
Using this button, you can only travel via one location. If you want to pass
more than one, use an Itinerary.
Recalculate
original
Tap this button to return to the original route without deviations to avoid
roadblocks or travelling via particular locations.
Avoid part of
route
Tap this button to avoid a part of the route. Use this button if you see that
your route includes a road or junction you don’t like, or which is well-
known for traffic problems.
You then choose the road you want to avoid from a list of the roads on your
route.Browse Map 9.

have to type the address of that POI again. But when you create a POI you can
save more than just the location.
• Phone number – when you create a POI, you can save a phone number with
it.
• Categories – when you create a POI you have to put it in a category.
For example, you could create a category of POIs called ‘Favourite restau-
rants’. With each POI, save their phone number so that you can call them to
reserve a table.

What is an Itinerary?
An Itinerary is a plan for a journey including more locations than your final des-
tination.
An Itinerary can include the following items:
• Destination – a location on your journey where you want to stop.
• Waypoint – a location on your journey where you want to travel through
without stopping.
When would I use an Itinerary?
You could use an Itinerary for trips such as:
• A driving holiday through a country with lots of stops.
• A two day car journey with an overnight stop.
• A short drive which passes by Points of Interest.
In all these examples you could tap Navigate to… for each place. However, if
you use an Itinerary, you can save time by planning everything in advance.

rent position. You do not need to set a departure point.
When you have passed a waypoint or reached a destination, it is marked as

Traffic information using RDS-TMC
The Traffic Message Channel (TMC)
You can receive traffic information on your TomTom ONE/XL/XXL using the
TomTom RDS-TMC Traffic Receiver. The TMC transmits traffic information as
a radio signal.
Tip: The TomTom RDS-TMC Traffic Receiver is included with some products
and available as an accessory for others. Visit tomtom.com for more informa-
tion.
The Traffic Message Channel (TMC) is not a TomTom Service. FM radio sta-
tions in several countries broadcast TMC information as part of their program-
ming. TMC is also known as RDS-TMC traffic information.
Your TomTom navigation device uses this information to warn you about traf-
fic delays along your route and how you can avoid them.
Note: TomTom is not responsible for the availability or quality of traffic infor-
mation provided by TMC.
TMC is not available in all countries or regions. Visit tomtom.com to check if
it is available in your country or region.
Using traffic information
To start using TMC, connect the TomTom RDS-TMC Traffic Receiver to the
USB connector on your device.
Note: The RDS-TMC receiver does not work if the Car Charger is not con-
nected.
As soon as you start receiving traffic information, the traffic sidebar
is shown on the right side of the Driving View. The traffic sidebar
warns you about any traffic incidents on your route.
In this example, there is a traffic jam on your route 9 kilometres
ahead that will cause an expected delay of 38 minutes.
These symbols are shown at the top of the traffic sidebar:
Your ONE/XL/XXL has the latest RDS-TMC traffic information.
Your ONE/XL/XXL is waiting to download the latest RDS-TMC traffic
information as soon as it is available.
Your ONE/XL/XXL is searching for a radio station that carries RDS-TMC
traffic information.50
