  • One XL does not auto change day & night colour schemes

    Hi, I have a One XL v1 that does not auto change day & night colour schemes. I understand that on the One XL this is meant to be acheived using Sunrise/Sunset tables presumably obtained from the GPS data.

    I have tried the factory restore and hard paper clip reset.

    I can change the view manually.

    Is anybody aware of a fix or is there a setting for this that I cannot see?

    My TT has app ver 8.010, and boot ver 5.3026.

    Thanks!

    my xl v2 the one with easy port mount does this, I click on brightness in the settings and theres a tick box for auto, also when I manually change to day or night it then asks me if I want to auto change next time..might only be a feature on v2

        Many thanks for the info!
        My One XL does not have the auto tick box, but that suntime plugin looks good but I can't get it installed. The instructions just say install it on the TT but don't say how or where?
        Can anybody who has used this plugin help?

          I own a TomTom ONE v1 (32Mb RAM) which is exactly the same as your device, except mine is the smaller screen model. As you can see, the official navcore for our devices doesn't come with the auto switch option. This option is a feature of the navcore, not the device. You need to install a newer navcore to get this feature.
          I am running a recent SE navcore 9.101 on x40light mode. Under "Brightness Preferences" there is an option "Switch to night colours when dark." I have that ticked and it automatically changes map colours and brightness settings according to sunset/sunrise times.
          An excellent navcore for our units is the 8.562, and from what I've read in various posts it should run more smoothly than any of the 9xxx navcores.

            Are you sure this is a navcore issue? FYI my friend has an XL 30 with a navcore 8.010 and this has the auto switch on the brightness screen!

            I upgraded my navcore to 8.417 yesterday for other reasons, but there was still no auto switch on the brightness screen.

            On the subject of the suntime plugin, it appears that this is no longer an option as TomTom pulled the plug on non TomTom developers - something to do with no longer supporting SDK.

            Any other suggestions would be welcome!

              Yes. The reason I know this is because I used to run the official 7.903 navcore and that didn't come with the auto feature. I am now running the 9.101 navcore which does have this feature and I use it with success.

              My device is just the smaller screen version of yours, so it must be a navcore issue. The link below is the 9.101 ONE navcore which is made for all the ONE models (found in this forum).

              I hope this resolves it for you

                Not sure if this is any help but check your settings and see if day/night settings are linked to your headlights (in preferences). This is similar to a problem I had with my GO 300 so don't know if it will apply to your model but must be worth checking it out.

                  Just checked... there is no such feature in TomTom ONE models

                    Craigmill,
                    I just installed another navcore for my TomTom ONE: 8.562 SE and this also comes with the setting: "Switch to night view when dark." And it actually works! See attached pics:
