    I have a MAP in my SD Memory Card an it was working properly few days ago, but since the las two days my C340 is not reading the SD Card. If I put the SD in my laptop, I can read the memory and even si the map file, so the memory has no problems, but the C340 doesn't read it!



    Any ideas?



    NOTE: This happened just the day I left my GPS unit in the car all the day and I think it is related to the heat inside the car during sun hours.

SOURCE: data card

In each of the sections of 76CSx, such as tracks, waypoints, and routes though their respective categories on the main menu by navigating to their sections and pressing the menu key. For USB mass storage data go to system>Interface> USB Mass Storage and connect to the computer and delete information like it was a regular hard disk (remember to empty the recycling bin to actually remove it from the drive and free space. As for maps I'm not sure as I have never done that myself. Hope this helps

SOURCE: Micro sd card not showing up on the gps

Have you got GB Discoverer on the card? The map should appear on the Map Information list in the Setup > Map area. Double check the placement of the map card. Also, in case you have not found it yet, there's wealth of information on the Oregon Wiki here: garminoregon.wikispaces.com

SOURCE: I bought the europe sd card. If I insert it will

No, the US data is on the unit itself. Adding an SD card with maps only increases the number of maps your unit can handle, it doesn't replace existing maps. You'll have to go into settings to change the view to European maps.

When turn On can get the screen showing the GPS connected to Computer when not connected ,On Battery only, get red cross flashing


If your TomTom shows a red cross, it means the device is not able to load the software to be able to operate. Some devices have this software on a SD-card, some have it stored on an internal memory.
If there was a SD-card in your TomTom, I would suggest to put it back. If there is a empty SD-slot on your device, it could be you lost your SD-card, but some TomTom devices have an internal memory AND a SD-slot for memory extension, so if you have an empty cardslot it doesn't necessarily mean there has to be a card in it.

When you never saw a SD-card, probably some data went corrupt on the internal memory. When you have a SD-card, probably some data got corrupted on the SD-card.

To repair the software, you need to connect your GPS to your PC or Mac with a USB cable.
You also need the program TomTom HOME. You can download it for free on the TomTom website.
With TomTom HOME you can update the operating system of your device for free (map updates are nor free).

Try updating, and see if your device works again.

If this doesn't work, post it here.

No map data availble


Your Garmin GPS has an internal memory or an SD-card that contains an "operating system" and "map data".The operating system is like windows or Mac OSX. It contains the menu and everything the GPS displays. The "map data" is a digital roadmap the GPS uses to calculate your route. If the map data was on a SD-card that was inserted in your GPS, it could me that you lost the SD-card. That could be the reason your GPS can't find the map data. Sometimes it happens that when people connect their GPS to a computer to update the "operating system" of the GPS something goes wrong. For example, when you disconnect your GPS from the computer while the update software is still writing data to your device, the connection gets lost and you're left with corrupt files on the GPS. It could also be a defect in the internal memory of the GPS. I suggest you try to update the operating system with a program called "Garmin Express" (just google and easy find it). You need to connect the GPS to your computer with a USB cable. Then you can perform an update. I hope it helps to solve your problem. What you could also try is to soft reset your GPS. To do that, you need to remove the silver or blue frame around the screen of the GPS (it pops off). Behind this border there is a reset button.
If the map data is completely gone, and you don't have a backup there is only one solution: Buy the latest map for your GPS online and download it to your GPS. It's expensive. In that case it's better to buy a new device in a shop. Most new devices contain Lifetime online map updates (model name nuvi -then the number - LM or LMT) (LM= Lifetime Mapupdates T= Traffic information) Then you can update your map data every three months if you want.

Picture of sd card on screen. does nothing else!! tried reset no help!! inserted sd card still shows sd card wth arrow pointing in slot!!


You should try putting the SD card into a PC Card Reader and see if there is any data on the card. That normally happens when there is a bad connection or the card is blank.

I have a tom tom go 710 and need to know how to reset it, and when i turn it on, the screen shows that I need to install SD card. I am wondering if I need the SD card for it to work properly?


To reset your TomTomGo710 device, do the following:
  1. Check that the battery is charged properly.
    Charge your device for at least 2 hours before trying to turn it on again. Make sure the charging light on your device is on.

  2. Remove the SD card
    If your device uses an SD card, remove it.

  3. Reset your device.
    Use a straightened paper clip, or something similar, to push the reset button for 15 seconds. See the pictures below for where to find the reset button.

  4. Turn your device on.
    Press the On/off button for at least 5 seconds.

  5. Insert the SD card
    If your device uses an SD card, insert the SD card.

tomtom go710 map data is on SD card without it, it will not work.

I just purchased a Garmin Language Guide SD Card 010-10672-00. I inserted the smaller chip into the SD adapter and inserted the unit into my Nuvi 760 which is already loaded with a sample of the Oxford...


First do a back up of all your GPS data.
Then erase the lex pkg on the Garmin (the limited version that came free)
Then insert your language sd card it should ask you if you want to load the language pkg
to the garmin say yes then remove the card and it should all work ...

TT Home does not recognise connection


You definitely need software and maps on an SD card. The TOMTOM will not work without a card inserted. The card will contain MAPS , Map authorisation codes ( to show they are genuine TOMTOM maps bought and paid for ) , POI ( points of interest ), GPS fix data , voices ( for spoken navigation ) etc etc etc. ....................
PLEASE NOTE , TRYING A CARD FROM ANOTHER TOMTOM is very unlikely to work. Each card has an authorisation code that is generated via an algorithm inside each TOMTOM and is device specific.
However , trying a card from another tomtom might produce a diferrent result but still not work , at least this might prove that the tomtom is working OK before you rush out and buy a tomtom card.

"My tom tom wonts switch on. I have reset it and still it comes on with a boom boom noise and shows the 2 hands on the screen. It also shows the loading bar at the bottom, but then it just freezes and nothing happens. can anyone help please ASAP"

Sound as though your Map data card is corrupt. Remove the SD card and check it with your computer using a card reader. Backup the SD card onto your computer. You can run either chkdsk or go to the drive letter under 'My Computer' right click and select properties, then tools, then check now. You can also try starting the Tomtom with the SD card out of the unit. It should show a picture of the Tomtom with a 'X'. You can also try copying the data on the SD card to another SD card.
