Switching on and off
To switch your TomTom ONE on or off, press and hold the On/Off button for
2 seconds. The first time you switch on, it may take a short while for your
device to start.
Note: In rare cases, your ONE may not start correctly. If this happens, press
the reset button, then switch on the device again.
Setting up
To set up your TomTom ONE you need to answer a few questions by tapping
the screen.
Important: Take care to select the correct language, since the language you
choose will be used for all menus and written instructions.
Battery notes
For information on connecting your computer, see Using TomTom HOME
(43).
Note: Your TomTom ONE uses a small amount of battery power to remember
the last screen being shown when the device is switched off.
If you do not charge your ONE for a prolonged period of time, the next time
you start your ONE it will show the default starting screen. All other device
settings will still be maintained.
Improving reception
If your TomTom ONE takes longer than 5 minutes to find your current
position, make sure that the device is in an open space away from tall objects
such as buildings or trees.
When you connect your TomTom ONE to your computer, you can use
TomTom HOME to download information about GPS satellite positions during
the next 7 days. This helps your ONE to find your position faster.
Important: Some vehicles have heat reflective shielding in the windscreen.
This may prevent your ONE from locating your current position.4
Windshield Holder
Use the windshield holder to install your TomTom ONE inside your car.
To attach the holder, press the suction cup firmly to the windshield in your car,
in an area of the windshield where the glass is flat.
Make sure that both the holder and your windshield are clean and dry before
you attach the holder. Place the holder so that it does not interfere with your
view of the road.
Take care of your TomTom ONE
Never leave your TomTom ONE or accessories in view when you leave the car
or they may become an easy target for thieves.
You can set a password for your TomTom ONE which must be entered every
time you start your ONE. For more information, see Using TomTom HOME
(43).
It is important to take care of your ONE.
• Your ONE is not designed for use in extreme temperatures and any such
exposure may cause permanent damage.
• Do not open the casing of your ONE under any circumstances. Doing so
may be dangerous and will invalidate the warranty.
• Wipe or dry the screen of your ONE using a soft cloth. Do not use any liquid
cleaners.Driving View 3.

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

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 gas.
• You want to avoid a difficult intersection or a road you don’t like.
Find alterna-
tive…
Tap Find alternative… in the Main Menu to change the route that is
currently planned.
Then tap one of the options below.
Calculate
alternative
Tap this button to calculate an alternative to the route already planned.
Your ONE 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
Recalculate 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
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.13
Travel via…
Tap this button to change your route so that it passes a particular location,
perhaps to pick someone up on the way.
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, Favorite, Point of Interest and Point on map.
Your ONE will calculate a new route to your destination that passes the
location you chose.
Recalculate
original
Tap this button to return to the original route without deviations to avoid
roadblocks or traveling 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.
Minimize
traffic delays
T ap this button to recalculate your route so that it avoids traffic problems as
much as possible. Your ONE will check if there are any traffic problems on
your route and work out the best route to avoid the problems. Sounds and voices 6.

Traffic information using RDS-TMC
The Traffic Message Channel (TMC)
The Traffic Message Channel (TMC) is not a TomTom Service. FM radio
stations in several countries broadcast TMC information as part of their
programming. TMC is also known as RDS-TMC traffic information.
Your TomTom device uses this information to warn you about traffic delays
along your route and how you can avoid them.
To use TMC traffic information, you need a TomTom RDS-TMC Traffic
Receiver that comes with some TomTom devices or is available as an
accessory for others. For more information on which TomTom devices
support RDS-TMC receivers, visit www.tomtom.com.
Note: TomTom is not responsible for the availability or quality of traffic
information provided by TMC.
TMC is not available in all countries or regions. Visit www.tomtom.com to
check if it is available in your country or region.
Setting up TMC
To start using TMC, all you need to do is connect the RDS-TMC Traffic
Receiver to your TomTom device or to the windscreen mount of your
TomTom device, depending on your product.
The receiver works best when mounted in a vertical position, so if possible, try
to place your TomTom device towards the drivers side corner of the
windscreen so that the receiver can be secured out side of your field of vision.
After you have finished positioning the receiver switch your TomTom device
on. The Traffic sidebar is shown on the right-hand side of the Driving View and
your device searches for a radio station that has RDS-TMC information.36
The following symbols are shown at the top of the Traffic sidebar:
Tip: The yellow circle is shown at the top of the Traffic sidebar if your device
cannot find a suitable radio station. You can make your device try again to find
a suitable station by tapping Tune automatically in the traffic menu. If you
know the FM frequency of a station that broadcasts RDS-TMC traffic
information, you can tune to it manually. For more information see Setting the
radio frequency for RDS-TMC information (39).
Your device is looking for a radio station with RDS-TMC traffic
information.
Your device has found a suitable radio station and is checking for
the latest traffic information.
Your device is tuned to a radio station and receives RDS-TMC
traffic information when available.37

How Does Navigation Work?
Global Positioning System (GPS)
In order to navigate you to your destination, your TomTom ONE must know
where you are now. To find your current position, your ONE uses the Global
Positioning System (GPS). GPS is available for free and without subscription.
GPS uses satellites to transmit signals to GPS receivers. Your TomTom ONE
has a built-in GPS receiver. Using the GPS signal, your ONE can work out
where you are and how fast you are going. GPS signals work in all weather,
anywhere in the world.
Note: Your TomTom ONE does not transmit your position, so others cannot
use it to track you while you are driving.
Maps
Once your TomTom ONE knows where you are and you have told it where
you want to go, it uses the digital map on the memory card or hard disk to
work out the best route to your destination. Using TomTom HOME 14.
