How to Program TomTom Waypoints


It's easy to set up a simple route from point A to point B on a GPS device, but sometimes you might want to make a few stops along the way. These might be the "points of interest" that came with your GPS, or waypoints that you choose yourself. Several TomTom GPS devices let you set up your own waypoints, although the method varies depending on your model.

  • Tap the "Drive To..." or "Navigate To..." icon on your TomTom's main menu, and follow the onscreen prompts to enter a destination for your trip. When you're finished, tap "Done." A summary screen shows your route.

  • Touch the "Change Route" button at the lower left of your TomTom's display. Choose "Travel Via..." and enter the location of your first waypoint. When you tap "Done," you are returned to the main menu. Now that you have a route planned, you'll see a "Change Route" button added to the main menu. Tap it to enter another waypoint.

  • Repeat the process until you've entered three waypoints, which is the limit on these devices.

  • Look for an icon on your main menu labeled "Itinerary Planning." If the icon isn't visible, tap the "Show All Menu Items" button to bring it up and then press it.

  • Tap "Add," and begin adding points to your itinerary. Each one can be an address, latitude and longitude coordinates or a point on your map display.

  • Select each point as you enter it, and choose "Mark as Waypoint."

  • Repeat until you've added as many waypoints as you want. Your limit is 48 possible points, including your ultimate destination.

  • Rearrange the order of your waypoints by tapping each one and selecting "Move Item Up" or "Move Item Down" until you've arranged them the way you want. Tap "Done" when you're finished.

Tips & Warnings

  • Not all TomTom models in these series support the waypoints feature. Visit the company's website for a list of supported models.
