  1. Format the card in your PC's card reader as Fat32
  2. Insert the card in your TT, turn on your TT, connect your TT to your PC, and from your PC find the drive letter that corresponds to your SDHC card
  3. Now format the card in your TomTom using Windows - don't worry if it formats to a lower capacity.
  4. Turn off your TT, remove the card, place in your card reader
  5. Format your card using "Quick Format"

Tom tom go 510 won't go ............


I red cross usually indicates an SD card problem.
With most tomtom's usually removeing the SD card and powering up will resolve the issue.

If not then a HARD reset without the SD card may be called for.

If it does prove to be an SD card error then formatting in a proper card reader using FAT32 as the file system and then copying the files back over from the tomtom usually does the trick.

Or format and restore from a back up to the card. can work too.

It may also mean that a files might have been deleted or become corrupted.

Does not recognise the sd card


This is a common error ans is usually caused by the card not being formatted correctly

A card reader/writer on you PC is the best option

If you can plug the card in somewhere other than into the Tom Tom.
Even a card reader attached to the PC vai a USB cable will work

The computer will see the tomtom as a USB drive that can be accessed like a flash drive.

You need to format it either as "FAT or "FAT16" using the reader
In either my computer or windows explorer right click on the card (propably listed as removable drive)

Select FORMAT and use one of the FAT options above.

Plug your tomtom into the pc but don't run the tomtom home software
If the tom tom asks if you want to connect to computer say yes
Now Simply copy all of the files on your tomtom to the new card.

Once you finish doing the copy, you should be able to insert the card
If you need to add any maps voices etc then disconnect the tomtom from the pc and start the tomtom home software, then connect the tom tom to the pc.

Many tom toms will accept up o a 4gb card (but not micro versions)

I updated the tom tom non the home updates and now


You also may want to ensure the format on the card was compatible with the new software. chances are you need to update both with it wanting to reformat the card it will wipe all information clean. Try saving the information to your computer before formatting the card to save the maps. It may work if not you may need to update the card with newer software compatible wiht the new download

Problems pairing blacberry bold to tom tom 510


First check tomtom site if the phone is compatible, not all are.
If so enable blue tooth on both items and detectable as well
Power up phone and select a feature with bluetooth update on your tomtom. In most cases it finds the phone, commenes a check out of its capabilities and will tell you the result. Could be negative

you have blackberry 8000 bold i take it

Memory card


Replace the SD Card.

Unfortunately not all card makes are compatible. ie: Tesco own brand being one

Good and reliable make is KINGSTON

Put your dodgy card into a pc card ready, copy and paste the data onto the new card.

If that doesn't work then I would say you have a tempromental card reader in your SatNav and need a replacement.

Let me know how you get on.

Problem solved. I bought a cheap 'integral' usb 2.0 sdhc compatible mobile card reader. Formatted rapidly and files loaded extremely fast.

Will not let me listen to music stored on sd card


Hi, how dit you format the SD card. It should be formatted as Fat32 before you store music on it. If the card does not showup in the browser there is an issue with the format. In some instances the card could be incompatible with the zumo. So format it first (Fat32), copy some mp3 files to it (id use 128 kbps mp3's to start off with) plug it in and see what happens. If nothing, try a different brand/size card. I use 4GB SDHC card made bij sandisk without issues.
