  • geoffmcneil Dec 12, 2008

    I've tried several times to connect the tomtom GO to the computer and Travelled many miles to the dealer's technician (twice) to be told the USB was not getting enough signal from the computer, so I tried several points of entry even the USB on the keyboard all to no avail.
    I know there is some signal getting thro because the device green light is showing.
    It just won't connect.

    My TomTom 720 use to connect just fine, but suddenly today it stopped connecting to the PC. When I place the TomTom in the cradle the green light appears on the device. The PC picks up an unknown USB device but I don't get the "Do you want to connect to the PC?" question and therefore cannot connect to the PC. I've tried uninstalling and re-installing the TomTom home software but with no success. Can anyone help? I've had so many problems with this TomTom that I will NEVER buy one again and will definately advise anyone against buying TomTom. Sorry...just had to vent my frustration with this product.

    I have the same problem...all of the sudden will not connect just this past week? Maybe a vista update gone wrong?

Used a paper clip end and pressed the reset button for 15-20 seconds. No data was lost, but I was able to connect to my computer and continue with the updates, etc.

How do i update my tom tom one


When you connect your TomTom to your computer (USB port) ... you can use the TomTom HOME software to check the updates available for your GPS.
This assumes you've (previously) registered your GPS on the TomTom website, and you have TomTom HOME installed on your computer.
If not, register your TomTom on the TomTom website (identify it with your email address), and install the TomTom HOME software on your computer.
Then when you connect your GPS device to your computer, the TomTom HOME software should start up (or you can start it up), and you can log into your TomTom account ... and the HOME software will automatically search and let you know if / what updates are available for your GPS.

How do I update data


Every brand of GPS devices, will offer updates for their sat nav's.
Some brands offer a "life time" free update, some only offer new maps when you pay. Not knowing what brand and or model I can't tell you how and where you can buy or get new maps for your device.

Updating maps of touchmate gps


First of all, you need to have the touchmate gps device software on your computer. Once there is a new map update, the software will notify you as soon as you connect your gps device to the pc. Therefore, to update your device that is where you get the latest update from. When you bought your device, there is an installation disc that came with it, that is the disc to install the software from, once you have installed it, just connect your device to your computer and if there is an update for your device the software will notify you and give you the steps to update your maps.

My magellan 1424 showes a pic of a cpu with a usb cabel and a pic of the gps and that all it showes it does nothing else


The pictures that displays on your screen is a message asking you to get your system connected to a computer, then you either update the software, download a new software for it or you update your current software.
Try to reset your gps first before you connect it to a computer. To reset your gps device, you need to hold the power off/on button for about 15 seconds, then it will restart itself, then it will load normally. If it does the same thing, then you need to connect it to a computer and download a new software for your device.
I hope this information was helpful.

I have a Garmin Nuvi 200W and have been receiving a message that it needs to be updated. Would I need a special accessory cord to connect to my computer? Also, is there a charge for updates? Thanks in...


That could be an update for maps or software..... software updates are free... new maps are from 50 to 60 dollars..... but do a software update first...if your maps are more that 2 years old i would buy new map

with the unit Off...... connect your gps to your computer using the usb cable..(usb cable is the same connection most cameras use to connect to computers)

your computer will detect new hardware (usb) minimise pop up box

next

go to www.mygarmin.com register your gps (free) it too will detect your gps model and let you update Firmware and Maps

it will tell you to download WebUpDater utility to transfer files to your gps... Done !

I RECENTLY PURCHASED A NEW COMPUTER ( WINDOWS 7 ) AND IT WILL NOT ALLOW ME TO SYNC MY SG-2 SKY CADDY. MY NAME IS BRUCE ALLACHER - ballacher@cox.net user name platteview 1 password riverwild


If your SkyGolf came with software, you should install it first. If you installed it and it does not work, go to the software and check for updates.
If that fails to work, UNINSTALL the program, and re-install it.
Make sure you DO NOT connect the device to the computer until the software is fully installed.
Check for updates after installation, and the reboot.
Then attach your device to the computer, and it should recognize it.

Good luck
