SOURCE: trying to upgrade tomtom

there is a good chance the programs etc did not copy to the card. If you have a card reader, check to see if there are programs on the card. Make sure you do not have the sd card write protected, open the small hole on the side of the card, copy the programs again to the card.

SOURCE: SD Card not showing in my Tomtom go 720 to play MP3

If you want to play mp3 songs from sd card then create mp3 folder and place all the songs in side that folder. Now when you go to Juke box menu it will scan all the songs and you will be able to play them the way you want..

SOURCE: Formatting a tomtom go 710

Hi, I probably cant answer all of your questions but I might help with some of them. You should be able to access your TomTom 710 without removing TomTom home software from your PC. It should be accesses as a drive through the USB connection in "my computer" on your PC. When a USB device is connected to your PC it appears as an external drive. Therefore you should be able to delete , load onto , or format the TomTom hard drive ( or with some other models the SD card ) as you would a normal drive . ( an example of this is where you might have a camer with SD memory card and relevant manufacturers software on your PC . you might connect your camera to the PC via USB and the camera software on your PC automaticly detects the camera for it to eb accesssed . However , the camera and it's SD card can also be accessed seperatly by going to "MY Compter" and it should also be visible there as an external UDB device / external drive ) . Now .. to another another question . If you do un-install TomTom home , I dont think it will also delete any backup of your TomTom , it will only delete TomTom Home software . ( the word "think" is mentioned because I have never tried this ). Besides that , you can choose in tomtom home , where you want any backups to reside , so you could save backups via TomTom home to a CD for istance. If you did that , then you would have the backup on a CD rather than your harddrive which means you could safely un-install TomTom home knowing that if it also removed any saved backup you would still have the CD with a backup on it. So , to summerise.... If it were me , I would make a backup of the TomTom by simply copying all the files on it by opening the TomTom up as a folder in "MY Computer" , simply drag any files and folders from the TomTom into a folder I have prepaired ( call it for instance "my tomtom backup" ) on my PC . Then I would format the TomTom drive then reinstall the backup and see what happens. If the TomTom still doesnt work properly , I would Format the tomtom again then use TomTom home to obtain all relivant files , then copy only the maps and .MAC files ( these are the authorisation files for the maps ) from my Backup to the TomTom manually ( not from tomtom home ). I would guess that would result in a working TomTom again ... Good luck.

SOURCE: Download maps to SD but TomTom won't read them

The OneXL can't read form internal memory and SD card at the same time.. much like a floppy disk on a computer. If it shall boot from SD card, it need the software installed as well...

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.

TRIED TO UPDATE MY TOMTOM GO 710 BUT NOT ENOUGH MEMORY BOUGHT NEW CARD BUT TOM TOM WONT TAKE IT TRANSFERED DATA BACK ON TO OLD CARD BUT TOMTOM WONT TAKE THIS...SHOW TWO CROSSED HAND ON MEMORY CARD...


Just had the same problem..............

I discovered that you must only use an SD card and not an SDHD card.

I bought a bigger SD card (2Gig), installed it and copied the data I wanted without any probs. With the SDHD card I couldn't transfer anything and didn't get any help as to why...(there's a lot to be said for trial & error).

Hope this helps

I HAVE A TOM TTOM GO 710...DOES IT NEED A SIM CARD


yes, the tomtom 710 needs the sd card which has the maps on it. if you just bought it and didnt get one with it, i suggest you take it back, because the cost of the card often out weights the value of the gps.

if you want to buy a sd card for it, you can get one HERE on the tomtom site or you might want to try ebay.com which sometimes they have them...i just checked ebay for you and currently there are none listed.

Tomtom Go 710 - help


The answer is Yes. I would make sure to have a backup on your PC. Uninstall TT home make sure you delet all of it. Reformat your card then install TT home. Connect your tt and let TT home reinstall your navcore. You may need to reconnect your tt a couple of times to get it updated to the newest navcore for your device. I believe it is 7.903. If you want to keep the older navcore just don't load the new one. Then install your maps as you normally would. I have just used this method to get the latest navcore for six 710's.
Hope this answers your question
