    Hello,

    I have the same problem as lytina4ever. I bought my TomTom Go 530 in El Corte Ingles, one of the biggest Department Stores in Spain, so no piracy if that is what "homemender" suggested.

    Please, if somebody can help, it would be great.

can you connect it to your usb port on your computer? if so try to connect and use it. dont worry about charging it just use it to see if its working ok. i dont know why they put a battery that is not replaceable in those. you must send it back to them to replace, I keep mine on power all the time. check this out first and see if its a malfunction or works ok.

I dont know how to charge my GARMIN nuvi 1200 with the usb cable


There are 3 ways to charge your garmin nuvi 1200 as follows;
  1. Connect your satnav to a computer with the mini USB cable. Plug the narrow end into the satnav, where the power cable goes, and the other end into the USB port of your computer. Both computer and satnav must be turned on. It will take about 8 hours to charge like this.
  2. Connect your satnav to your car charger and plug the charger into the cigarette lighter socket of your car. It will take about 4 hours to charge.
  3. You can get an optional mains charger which also takes 4 hours to charge the satnav.

Go to the tomtom.com website and download the software titled Tom Tom Home. You will see a link for this on the right side of their homepage. Once the software is downloaded and installed you can plug your GPS into your computer with the included USB cable and manage your GPS.

How concect garmin nuvi 205w to laptop


You connect the satnav to your computer with a mini USB lead. It should have come with the satnav. The narrow end goes in the back of the satnav, where the power lead goes in the car, and the USB end goes in a USB socket on your computer.

If you didn't get a mini USB lead with your satnav you may already have one for something else. They come with many digital cameras, camcorders, smart phones, external hard drives etc.

If you don't have one any computer store should be able to sell you one.

I purchase the lifetime updates for my Nuvi 200W GPS and now it will not allow me to download any updates on to it due to not enough memory. What can I do. I am pretty upset because I spent the money for...


Unfortunately the garmin 200W, like most of the garmin satnavs, doesn't have much storage space so you should be given the option to download part of the map only to your satnav. To get the full map the only option is to download the map to your computer. When you go to download the map from the garmin website select OPTIONS. In the options menu select download to computer. This installs a program called Mapinstall on your computer which contains the map. If you need to use more of the map you can then either replace the part installed on your satnav by running the mapinstall program from your computer or install it to an SD card. Note however that while garmin say that nuvi satnavs support SD cards up to 16 Gb some cards don't seem to work in them. Before spending all the time it takes to put your map on the card test it in your satnav first by putting music or pictures on it to see if it works

720 go wont let me download music onto it wont let me operate it on the computer


Have you installed an expansion memory card in the 720? Sometimes it wont let you download music because you have filled up the internal memory. You need to put music on to the separate expansion card. BUT... when connecting to the computer to update map corrections and software, if you have not selected INTERNAL MEMORY when it connects, it won't be able to find the tom tom software, so it will just think you have another external USB hardrive attached. SO... take the expansion card out of the tom tom, then connect the tom tom to the computer in the normal way - Voila, suddenly it now sees the tom tom and you can update software. But do not download any more music to the internal memory. Ultimately you will have to format the EXTERNAL expansion card to clear it of any tom tom software updates, then download ONLY MUSIC to the external card. Do not hit Update My Tom Tom while connected to the external card - only do this when connected to the internal memory.

I needs help about down'oading the software on my tomtom.i don't have a signal on the tomtom.


You need to connect the Tom Tom to the computer with a USB cable. If it is connected properly then it will ask Conect to the computer Yes / No. If you say Yes you can then use Tom Tom Home (supplied on the CD which came with the SatNav) to manage software / map downloads.

You don't need a satellite signal to download software / maps.

Cant reset tom tom


I have now resolved my Tomtom 1 V2 problem (posted 12th Nov 2008).
I emailed Tom tom directly, describing the problem I was having, they responded almost immediately.
Tomtom could not have been any more helpful, the advice they gave me was spot on, and absolutely correct.
Not only did they solve the error I had with my unit, but they made it work much better than it ever had.
Briefly, I was told to join (for free) Tomtom Home, then delete all of the operating system on my satnav and download the latest Tomtom operating system, plus a few other upgraded programs.
I am no computer genius, and admit to being more than a little apprehensive in doing this, but, it could not have been a more straight forward or simple procedure.
As before, my Tomtom now works so much better, faster and with far more features.
Another benefit of being a member of Tomtom Home is that you are offered many products such as map updates at greatly reduced prices.
Regards,
Chris Vince
