    New RDS-TMC cable from Ebay fixed my problems

    Great news, my TomTom 930 once again receives traffic! It was the cable's fault, not the jack in the TomTom, which is good. TomTom support wouldn't help me, because my device is out of warranty and they don't sell that part over the phone. I bought a new RDS-TMC cable on Ebay, and it now...

    Have 930, got 910, which is better?

    I have a TomTom 930. Recently, I also received a hand-me-down TomTom 910 from a relative. The TomTom 910 appears to be working, but is no longer needed because they bought a new car with built-in GPS. I'm wondering, which is better? From what I could see, the TomTom 910 has much larger...

    TomTom 930T full factory reset?

    Hi. Is it possible to do a full factory reset of the TomTom 930T? My unit has been misbehaving, and I'd love to restore it. Ideally, I'd wipe everything back to the way it started, including all software updates, and so on. The software has just suffered rot over time: 1) Bluetooth...

    Unable to find source to buy new traffic receiver cable

    I have a TomTom 930T, with a broken traffic receiver cable. I believe the round port on my TomTom is broken, not just the cable. The good news is that TomTom now sells a cable that connects through the existing USB port, and can receive traffic data through that! The bad news is that I've...

    TomTom RDS-TMC cable not making good contact?

    I have a TomTom 930T, and it's recently developed a problem. The RDS-TMC cable isn't making good contact anymore. It physically inserts just fine, but won't display the "Connecting to RDS-TMC" message on screen at all, even after waiting about 10 seconds (the usual amount of time it takes)...

    Phone number bug when returning Bluetooth calls

    I have a TomTom 930T. I have an iPhone 3GS, connected with Bluetooth. It works fine for receiving calls, and for placing manually-dialed calls. However, there's a pretty severe bug when trying to return a call from the recently-received list. I'm in the USA, in the 408 area code...

    TomTom Clear Channel Traffic expiring but I paid

    I have a problem with my TomTom 930T. It's counting down the days until my Clear Channel Traffic subscription expires. Right now, it's at 6 days. However, I paid the renewal online a week ago, and sync'ed my TomTom with "TomTom HOME" software on the PC. At the time, it downloaded a file...

    TomTom black debug screen after booting up

    Interesting. I have a TomTom Go 930 T. Turned it on, after not using it for about a week. Battery at around 50%. Instead of getting the regular TomTom display, I got a rather interesting black debug screen! It had information such as CPU type, amount of RAM and Flash ROM installed...

    Seeing what frequency RDS-TMC traffic tuned to?

    Is there a way to see what frequency the TomTom has detected, when setting the tuning to "auto", for RDS-TMC traffic (traffic data over FM radio, in the USA)? My TomTom 930T sometimes locks onto the radio station, sometimes it doesn't. I'm trying to troubleshoot problems with it. Also, is...

    Limitation on number of Favorites

    I have a TomTom 930T. It seems to have a crippling limitation on the number of Favorites that are allowed. It seems to only let me have 32 or so. It's crazy that the TomTom, which has several MB of free space internally, and can accept multi-GB SD cards, would have such a low limit on...

    Is it worth buying the new maps?

    I noticed TomTom is now selling maps as a quarterly subscription, instead of as a large yearly update. Question, is it worth buying these new maps? Roads don't seem to change all that much from year to year. Especially, since I live in California, we're having a bit of a budget crisis at...

    Wishlist for TomTom: OBD-II connector

    As a wishlist feature for the TomTom, I wish for an OBD-II connector! Most likely as an adapter cable, because the OBD-II plug is so large, or as a connection that would go into the bottom of a professional docking station (another wishlist feature of mine). Most cars, model year 1996 or...

    Easier access to Work location in Navigate menu?

    I have a TomTom 930T. Interestingly, the Home location is big and obvious in the Navigate menu, in fact, it's the first icon. The Work location, though, is more obscure. It can only be accessed through the traffic submenu. That's strange. Is there a way to assign a big icon to the...

    Where is menu option to turn off "Keep left" freeway nagging?

    I have a TomTom 930. I found the option once in the menus, but then went through everything I could remember and couldn't find it again! I know there was an option to disable the "Keep left" instructions. When driving on a freeway for a long distance, every few miles or so (usually at...

    Turning off interchange lane arrow screen?

    I have a TomTom 930, and it has an interesting quirk when it approaches some freeway interchanges. The normal scrolling map is blanked out, and in its place, the TomTom draws a simulated picture of the interchange the driver will be facing, with arrows telling the driver what lanes to be in...

    Bluetooth handsfree call too quiet

    I have a TomTom 930, and it syncs perfectly to my Bluetooth phone (Palm 680). The volume on the TomTom is nice and loud, for both the computerized voices and the prerecorded voices. Nothing wrong with that at all. However, when I try to use the TomTom to take a Bluetooth call, the person...

    Is there a way of marking roads as less preferable?

    I have a TomTom GO 930. I'm curious if there is a way to mark certain roads as less preferable, without having to roadblock them off entirely. The TomTom is making routing mistakes, trying to send me down small little back roads, as the crow flies, instead of keeping me on the main streets...

    Wishlist for professional car mount

    Here's my wishlist for a professional mounting adapter for the TomTom. Does such a thing already exist? * Rock solid mount, held with real screws, nuts and bolts, instead of just suction or glue. It would look similar to the existing docking station that is provided for the USB connection...

    Seeing color-coded maps based on traffic congestion?

    Is there currently a way to do this on the TomTom GO 930, or is this a "wishlist feature"? I'd love to see color-coded maps, based on current traffic congestion. The freeways would have the standard green/yellow/red/black color coding, indicating increasing levels of congestion. You can...

    How long does RDS-TMC traffic subscription last?

    I recently bought a TomTom Go 930 T, which included the RDS-TMC cable in it, to receive traffic data from FM radio stations. It seems to work great, as it detects traffic obstructions ahead and gives me estimated minutes of delay. How long will this subscription last? (To clarify, this...
