    Does Walmart/Target/ etc. have a cheap case for the Tomtom ONE 3rd?

    That's nice, but I won't even go into a TARGET store parking lot anymore! They wouldn't let the MARINES do their "Toys for Tots" thing here in Spokane, WA last year. That did it for me! I understand they are French owned. Just my opinion. DoctorBill

    Does Walmart/Target/ etc. have a cheap case for the Tomtom ONE 3rd?

    Wal-Mart in Spokane, WA has a CAMERA case which fits the TTO3ED. like a glove! Around $12. It is padded enough that you could drop the unit while it is in the case and it wouldn't break! NONE of the Cell Phone cases are large enough! Look at the display with Digital Camera Cases - the one I...

    Thinking of buying more than one TT One 3rd...

    Are you saying that you could obtain the NEW MAP just once and then, using your Windows XP computer, transfer the Map File to a second or third w/o any Unit Code problems? One could mess about with this, I suppose, and if the unit stops working, RESTORE one's ORIGINAL files and be back to...

    How do you get pictures into your Signature File?

    These are the "Permissions" that I have for a sig file. It isn't the file size causing the problem. I cannot change these - can I? DoctorBill

    How do you get pictures into your Signature File?

    How long do you charge on the computer USB cable ?

    I have been leaving my TomTom One Third Edition GPS Nav device on my computer's USB cable for several hours. Knowing about rechargable batteries (RC Model Airplanes and houshold devices), I am concerned about overcharging the batteries in the TomTom (Lithium). How long should I leave it...

    Where is the BACKUP file stored - NAME?

    You wonder, sometimes, why programmers do the things they do..... Was this to save Hard Disk space? In the age of Terabyte Hard Drives?! No options, either. Options are nice..... I will just "rename" the directories as I make Backups - then TomTom won't know its left hand from its right...
