    Hi, all.

    I was wondering if it's possible to get the GPS coordinates of where your are off of/out of the TomTom XL-325-S, and if possible how does one do it?

    Thanks in advance!

    One way is Navigate to-->Coordinates and the next 2 screens default to the current location.

    Another way is is the HelpMe menu-->Where am I.

    If you tap the satellite bars on the right hand side of the screen, you should be taken to the status page where your coordinates are displayed along with the current satellite reception.

    BEWARE: The coordinates you read will most likely be those of a position on the nearest point to a road if you are not already ON a road. Why - a long story. Just be aware of that.
