SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: can the tom tom xl 330s get a memory upgrade and if so how. Thanx

No, what you see is what you get, there is no slot for an SD card or any other form factor, the internal memory is also not upgradable.

SOURCE: Tomtom Go920 device is not recognized by computer

I had this issue with my Go930 and inserted an SD card into the slot underneath and, hey presto, it now works. You dont have to use the SD card, but to get the Home2 software to recognise it, there must be one present the first time you "pair it" with this software. I can now use it without the card present

I have a ZTE Maven. I kept getting messages "insufficient storage" when I would try to download new things or updates. I installed a new 32GB SD card today. I am still getting this message. Help


Your updates are initially downloaded to your internal phone memory. Then, after the download, the update gets installed to wherever you have it stored on your phone. I recommend clearing your caches and history contents, and even uninstalling older updates if necessary. Also, moving as many of your apps and photos, videos, etc. to your SD card will give your phones internal memory some room to grow; but also help protect those things if your phone were to ever break.

Red X flashing when starting up TomTom


This problem is due to the memory card not containing the TomTom application or map. To update the application onto the memory card
  • Connect the device to your computer.
  • Open the TomTom Home application.
  • Click on 'Update My Device'.
This should then install the application onto the SD card. Alternativly, you could perform all the steps above without the SD card in the device, this will install the application onto the internal memory. Note: you may also need to install your maps, voices, etc after you updat.

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.

Tom tom one xl wont accept SD card with map on


If you have TomTom that have the slot for SD card, then it should accepted the SD card. The instruction for how to use the SD card is simple, but it is hidden in the TomTom Home, that's why it's difficult to find it. Below are the instruction how to use the SD card.

1. Format the SD card (FAT32) and do not stick the SD in the slot yet
2. Run Backup (connect TomTom device to computer)
3. Disconnect TomTom from computer and turn off
4. Slide the SD into the slot and connect TomTom back to computer (choose "yes")
5. In the TomTom Home menu, Choosen Backup & Restore >>> and choosen Restore

TomTom Home will add all applications to the SD card. So the internal memory still have the applications and the SD card also had the same applications. Everytime you slide the card in, TomTom will automatic detect and use it as its primary storage, if it not detect, you can go to the device menu and pick the device to connect to.
Whenver you take the SD card out, then TomTom will use its internal memory.

Hope this helpful

I think you will find that the tomtom one 3rd edition is a sealed unit.
No SD slot.
But it does have 1GB of RAM for storage and 32MB RAM for system use.
Pretty much the same internal architecture as an early handheld PC.
All updates are done through USB.
Hope this information is useful.
