Club TomTom Blog launched for US
TomTom US has launched their very own blog for the US customer, Club TomTom. The intent of the blog targeted at a couple of things according to Jocelyn Vigreux, President, TomTom Inc. U.S.A.:
1. Providing you, our users, with a place where you can easily find up-to-date and relevant information on our products and services.
2. Enabling you to share with others your suggestions, ideas and TomTom experiences so that new TomTom users can benefit from your expertise!
The launch of the blog coincides with the launch of the first integrated US advertising campaign. The ad campaign includes commercials on several cable channels, including ESPN, Spike TV, and the Discovery channel. If you want to see the new TV spots, go check out ClubTomTom where you can view them and vote on your favorite. While I like "ScottScott" for namesake only, I like the SueSue version best.... but I don't want to bias you, go check out all three.
TomTom has had a bunch of news lately, including a partnership with AOL's MapQuest to re-brand the TomTom GO 300 under the Mapquest PND name (see our article) , as well as selling the TomTom GO line through BestBuy outlets across the US (see article).
And BTW - Thanks TomTom US for citing GPS Lodge on the Club TomTom site as a Point of Interest blog alongside of Gizmodo and Engadget. We're honored.

I recently bought a TomTom One 130S system, and two known addresses I've typed in did not work when I was testing it. I typed in an address of a restaurant, and it said that the street I typed in didn't accept numbers. When I tried to find the place under the "restaurants" icon, it wasn't listed. Very disappointed.
I thought I might share my concerns about a recently bought Tom Tom XL-S that apears to be malfunctioning and expect to receive some friendly user´s advice.
My GPS only works fine after some time on. At the beginning it goes crazy, switching from the directions screen to the menu; it won´t allow you to enter an address properly, an M, or various M will appear on the screen, withoout allowing you to write properly . It will switch to sound and mute without touching anything, and only after some time running with your car will you be allowed to enter the proper directions ant it will work flawlessly afterwards. If the car is stopped for a couple of hours and the GPS is switched off and then restarted, it will work seamlessly without fault. On the contrary, if the GPS is switched off for the night, you will need to go through the same painful process the morning after to get your GS working properly.
Has anyone experienced the same with a TOM TOM? Any advice?.
