TomTom MOBILE 5 / NAVIGATOR 5 Manual


Navigate to...

This is the simplest and most useful starting point in most situations. Given your current GPS position, you can use this to navigate to any given address, crossing, favourite location, Point Of Interest, and so on. Select 'Navigate to...' to bring up its first options screen.

'Recent destination' is a useful time-saver, displaying a list of addresses, Points Of Interest and other destinations that you've used before.

'Address' displays the same city/street grids that you used in ' Planning your first route ', of course, so just choose your destination in the usual way. If you're not sure of the exact street name to type in, note that simply entering the city's name again (or using the 'City centre' option, described below) will get you to the geographical centre of the city.

Choosing 'Home' here is quick and obvious, though if you chose not to set a home location when setting up your TomTom system then this may still be greyed out. For more on setting up a home location, see 'Home preferences'.

Although you're going to be navigating to many places you don't know well, there will also be a number of locations that you visit frequently and that you want to be able to travel from (and to) without having to enter their address details each time. These are your 'Favourites'. See 'Favourite locations' for more on setting these up. Use 'Favourite' to navigate to such a location.

Note: 'Favourite' will be greyed out and unavailable if you haven't set any favourites yet.

'Point of interest' is your way into the huge database of railway stations, restaurants, petrol stations, cash dispensers, and so on. Choosing this will display icons for the five categories that you use most often. If the one you want now isn't shown here then use Arrow-head to bring up a browser with all categories that are available.

Use Arrow-head up and Arrow-head down to scroll through the list or enter a few letters of the required category's name. When you see the category you want, select it, to bring up a list of all Points Of Interest in that category, neatly sorted according to their distance from your current position. Use Arrow-head up and Arrow-head down to scroll through the list or, if you know the name of the Point Of Interest you want, choose the keyboard icon and then enter a few starting letters.

There are several icons used beside Points Of Interest in the list. A straight green arrow means that the POI is on your route; a bent green arrow means that a small detour from your route is needed to reach it; a bent yellow arrow means that this POI needs a bigger detour from your route; finally, with no icon shown, the POI is not on your route at all.

Finally, select any Point Of Interest to make it your destination.

Tip: Some of the more specialist Point Of Interest categories (e.g. 'Place of worship', 'Theatre') may contain information only for major cities.

By selecting Arrow-head in the 'Navigate to...' menu, you can view even more navigation options. Choose 'Post code' if you know this information for your destination and would prefer to enter this than use the town or city name. Once you've selected a post code in the browser, you'll be asked to choose a street name (if needed) and house number in the usual way.

Tip: You can change your mind and start entering the town name after all. Or indeed start entering a post code in the main Address browser. It really is up to you. Note that full postcode support is only available for the UK and the Netherlands.

If you're good with maps and you'd prefer to pick a destination by eye, or if you're simply not sure of a valid street name or post code to enter, choose 'Point on map' . You can then scroll around the map, zooming in or out as needed. Finally, select a point on the map as your destination and use 'Done'. For more information on using the TomTom map browser, see the chapter on ' Maps '.

On TomTom GO or TomTom Navigator, you can 'drag' the map to scroll it in any direction or drag the zoom control up or down to zoom out or in. TomTom MOBILE users should use their D-pad and Enter keys.

When travelling into an unfamiliar city, you might not know a destination road name, of course. Choose 'City centre' to automatically navigate to the geographical centre of any city name entered in the usual way.

In a similar way, choose 'POI in city' to navigate to a Point Of Interest in an unfamiliar city (e.g. a Hotel or Parking Garage). Choose a city name in the usual way and then a Point Of Interest category. The possible POIs are automatically sorted by proximity to the centre of the chosen city.

Once planned, a summary of the calculated route is shown on a suitably scaled map. Select 'Route' to explore the route in various ways. See 'Advanced route planning' for more details.
