How does one delete recent destinations from my XXL 540 when there is no delete button on the screen?

Thanks Kevin

    Hello,

     

    Whenever your attempting to delete recent destinations you should be able to

    1. Go to "Navigate to" or "Plan Route"

    2. Select "Recent Destinations"

    3. Select "Delete"

    How do you delete selected destinations?  I do want to keep a few but get rid of extras.  Thanks.

    I have an XL.  How do you delete unwanted destinations without deleting all of them.  when I follow the prompts  in the help references it says to delete route, but the destinations remains in the menu.

    You can only delete all the destinations, not individual ones.

    It's a shame that recent destinations cannot be deleted individually.

     

    What could work just as well then is perhaps adding repeated destinations to Favourite on a regular basis and delete all unwanted recent destinations as needed.

    You can delete individual "Favorites". It is frustrating to not be able to delete individual "recent destinations".

    Go to Navigate to; Recent Destinations; Delete should be the center choice. As you add new destinations the oldest ones will disappear (once you reach the maximum). Which model do you have?

    You can first try a "factory setting reset" first.  But to preserve your favorite destinations you should copy the file "mapsetting.cfg" which is located in your map folder.  Your map folder has a name similar to the region the map covers. Example Norh America map folder is named " USA_Canada_Mexico_P.


     


    If this does not help I would suggest unistalling and reinstalling the application, here are the steps for doing this.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    First: make a backup of the contents of the gps using windows explorer. Per this link.
    http://www.tomtomforums.com/general-tomtom-discussion/17864-how-backup-contents-your-unit-computer.html

    Second: check the flash memory in the gps to make sure there are no errors.
    http://us.support.tomtom.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/9908/kw/memory%20error

    Third: If the memory has no errors or they were repaired by the check disk utility you just ran, uninstall the software on the gps and reinstall it.

    http://us.support.tomtom.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2053/kw/reinstall

    Note: when reinstalling the gps software you may have to perform up to three updates to get everything installed. The  gps may not work correctly until all the updates are installed. Be sure to restart Home and the gps between each update. If the gps won't connect to the computer normally just reset the gps with it connected to the computer. The gps should automatically try to connect to the pc.

    Forth: If the gps is working now, there are a few misc files like startup / shutdown screens that you can copy back to the gps from the backup copynyou made. Here is a list of those files. Just use windows explorer to copy them from the main directory of the backup to the main directory in the gps. Do worry if you do not find all these files are not on your backup. Not all gps models have all these files.

     1. antitheftw.bmp   (this may have the named antitheft.bmp)
     2. autorun.inf
     3. splashw.bmp      (this may have the named splash.bmp)
     4. suspendw.bmp     (this may have the named suspend.bmp)
     5. tomtom.ico

    If everything is working ok now we recommend making a final backup of your gps. That way if something happens in the future all you have to do is delete everything on the gps and copy the backup to the gps and you are done.

    Unfortunately, you can't in the Recent Destination screen. It's all or nothing.


     


    HOWEVER.............................


     


    You can make a favourite from a recent destination. So, you can make favourites for the recent destinations you wanted to keep. Then delete all the Recent destinations. You'll still have the ones you want as favourites.
