Question about Tomtom ONE GPS Receiver
I've lost my tomtom, despite getting it just a couple of weeks ago. I sort of suspect my teenage son's "friend" who was around adn very interested in it but don't want to make any accusations...esp as it might equally be lurking somewhere here, out of sight. Given that it is a GPS, is there any way of identifying its current location?
First of all it is obivous that a tomtom has a unique satellite address to recieve information, or they really wouldn't work, right? Any search from anyones tomtom would change your destination, which is defintly not the case. A unique satallite address means the address could defintly be cloned and monitored for activity. Just as they do with computers and modems. I mean they were able to catch BTK, a serial killer, by tracing a floppy disk all the way back to the exact computer he used to make it for christ sake. Tomtom probable doesn't want you to really think about the possibilaties of tracking your GPS, as this would probably be a violation of our privacy and probably our rights. I really think they can, but why they want to waste their time with the thousands of calls everyday. They should get their heads out of their azz and make some goddam money. It is a freaking Global Positioning Satallite reciever, and it would be the stupidest thing that I've ever heard that Tomtom can't find the location of it, come on. It seems they prey off our ignorance and only care about making money.

No the tomtom is used to receive satellite data, it can not transmit data unless you have a bluetooth model, then it can connect to your phone if the unit is on.
If lost or stolen you can register it at the following website. If it is recovered then they will return it to you.

I got my Tom Tom XL 330S stolen yesterday at the Sport Academy. I went inside of the store for just 15 minute and went I got out, I found my truck window broken through and they took my GPS. Is there any way to track the GPS?. Tom Tom has to come up with a solution, because I spent a lot of money on the gps and the only thing I got left is just the box.

Can you track the location where the Tom Tom has been, This is the second one that has been stolen from me, their has to be some way of tracking this device or some way of disabling it, if I can't have it why should the smuck who stole it be using it, Tom Tom has to come up with a solution for all those hard working people who actually bought the darn thing, and for someone simply stealing it and using it, Come up with a solution, We know you can

In normal use a GPS sat nav is not traceable. It sends nothing. It only receives. However when it is plugged into a PC it can access the account for that device. The manufacturers system could then attempt to locate the device (get it GPS location through the internet connection) and report it to its registered owner.

Makes no sense, if it cant send information then how can it direct you, it has to send a signal to be brought back to tell you your speed and location, it has to send information, maybe not all the time but when u use directions, ps mine was stolen, i worried because my home address is in the damn thing

I found Garmin has a feature to track down a device from the net. Not sure why it is not available to Tomtom.
