Well, as far fetched as this sounds, it happened to me just yesterday; and no I don’t have ‘proof’ of it happening and even if I took a pic of it I’d be called a hoaxer. With that being said... here’s the story...

I get up yesterday late, after 1pm, I check my cell and I have a text from a friend at 10am asking me if I knew how much admission was to go to the Oregon Zoo. I texted her back and told her I just got up & if she wanted me to still check; she never replied after 5 mins. So I went to the PC and entered Oregon Zoo in Google search, but I can’t remember if I hit the ENTER key or not.. but I do remember I did input the 2 words into Google search bar.

Fast forward to 4pm, Went to go see The Avengers, and after that I had to go to take a friend to the ER across town, as I stepped off the porch, the thought crossed my mind to grab my TomTom (GPS) just in case I run into street closures etc. TomTom’s retain their last know locations imputed, which in this case should have been HOME because we just came back from a 600mile trip and that is what I used to get back home. (Our home address)

As I turned on the TomTom, it booted up with, I kid you not... Oregon Zoo and was calculating the route~! The device had not been booted up at all since the our last trip and I’m a bit OCD with it since I got it for Christmas a year ago, and I keep it in my dresser drawer..

Any suggestions and has anyone else had a glitch in the matrix like this?

I thought this was a bit strange at first.

Does the GPS have software on the PC?

Do they both have bluetooth?

Would it be possible for the GPS to have connected to the PC upon booting?

The same could be said for a phone linked to the GPS. If the phone was used to plot the course, it could be linked to the GPS for data-logging purposes.

Failing that......Time to line your favourite hat with foil.

all GPS is a clock, they just transmit. and GPS receiver just receives the signal of that clock of the GPS and triangulates your position from the time differences hence why you need about 4 simultaneous connections to GPS satellites to get a position of where you are.

So the answer is no, because google cannot read a receiver such a GPS device unless you have a GPS device that transmits and receives which if it did would probably be on of the first in the world.

Even if you had it plugged into USB google would have to have some software in place to inject data to the Tom Tom search function.

~Yes, but it's disabled, meaning it's not running in the background on the PC

~No

~No, it would have be connected to the PC itself & hasn't been for a month.

~I don't have internet connectivity on my cell phone

exactly~! however, can they upload the data to a computer that would upload it to a sat?

It wasn't the Internet connection, but the Bluetooth.

I don't know which model Tom Tom you have, but some of them connect to phones via Bluetooth(Hands free in the car). It doesn't really matter as you would know/mentioned that you looked up the zoo on your phone.



Just out of interest.....you didn't switch the GPS on at the Zoo did you?

Google certainly use your searches to filter out certain advertisements

For example
i play cricket and recently wanted to look for a new bit of timber, googled cricket direct come on here on another tab and iv got ads for cricket direct on here. Happens to me on loads of sites.

I don't have a Iphone and yes, my cell does have Bluetooth but, the TomTom was shut off 50' from my PC and in a drawer unpluged

the TomTom I have is a 335S

No I didn't look up zoo on my phone.. I look up Oregon Zoo on my PC in the google search bar because I don't have internet on my cell

Do you take sleeping med's or have a history of sleep walking?

There isn't much else it could be unless you have a friend that likes to screw with you?


To add.

See if there is a log file on the GPS......at least you might be able to nut out when the destination was set.

No, no meds of any kind and but how would sleep walking fit in?

How would my friend be able to input the coordinates from her cell phone (which is not an Iphone) into my GPS portable device which is sitting in my dresser drawer turned off?

there's no log file.
