Card needs to formatted using fat32 in windows formatting options, then copy and paste your back-up files one by one to your new card.
Hope this helps

Tomtom 1 v3 wont read new sd card help


Take special not of part 6

1. Remove the SD card
The card needs to be formatted properly first that's all,

2. formatting is better done in a card reader.

3. Right click on it and select format select FAT32 as the files system

4. Now connect the tomtom but don't let tomtom home run. exit TTH if need be.

5. You now ned to select your tom tom which will also show as a drive.

6. In windows explorer select tools then folder options. Click view and tick the box for "show hidden files and folders"
It may warn you but you can ignore it.

7. Then just copy ALL the files from the tom tom to your sd card

8. DO NOT USE CUT AND PASTE !

9. Once all the files are on switch off the tom tom and insert the sd card

It should now work

Unable to download map onto tomtom one xl


If you have an older tt xl it will only take up to a 2gb sd card. Larger than that you will get errors.
Hope this helps

TomTom One series 30 won't reset


It sounds like you have lost the operating system or the flash memory card has gone bad. Make sure your unit is fully charged and try again. Then connect your device to your computer. If it comes up in my computer right click the drive and check properties to see how much space is availiable on the drive. If it says 0 the flash has gone bad, I have a 20 series tt that this happened to. My solution was to insert a sd card (at least 2 gb.) into the sd card slot found under the sticker no sd card requaired on the bottom of the tt. TT home then installed the operating system but the downside is if you have not made a backup od your tt you will have to buy new maps (not cheap).
Hope this helps

Updated maps now tomtom710 will not store data


blet, nafik, just push that small & stupid switch on the upper left, to top, on SD card. It will mean that you switched off "write protected" mode on you SD card ;)
Or, make sure you have SanDisk make SD card ;)

Maximum SD card size for TomTom ONE XL


The XLS which is not that much different and supports 4Gb as used in mine which allows me to keep maps of the US,Canada, UK, and the whole of europe on it and swap at will. I bought a cheap generic one. I do kow that those cards that use micro sd can and do have problems so best to avoid the micro type unless your device takes those specifically

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.

TomTom One 2nd edition - Please help!


I experienced the exactly same problem/symptoms with the backup restore function today. After installing the new firmware application on my TomTom Go 510, I did a new backup of my TomTom using the Home Application,  I then attempted to "restore" that backup to two spare SD cards.  The dialog box indicated "restoring," but nothing was being restored. My work-around, which worked great, was to locate the Backup Storage folder on my hard drive, and Drag & Drop its contents onto the spare SD cards (after erasing them).
I'm running the TomTom Home application (v 1.5.106) on an Intel iMac, OSX 10.4.10.
