    I have the same problem with a Rider 2. But only after it came back from being repaired. They asked for the Device AND the 2 gig SD stick. When I got it back, it did not have an SD stick anymore. So they sent me a new SD stick, and it did NOT have a MAP at all, plus it was only 1gig. I sent that stick back, on their dime, they sent me another stick, this time it has a map, but still only a 1 gig SD. My orignal 2 gig had the North_America_2gb map, now I got USA_Canada map and it's only 800+ megs. PLUS it won't work anyway, because the stick has to be "Activated" and this process requires a Product Code to be entered 1st, and I DONT HAVE THAT CODE, so they sent me the Clear Flash tool, which did not help, then they were nice enough to send me the $99.00 Download Version, and to put it on a new 2gig SD stick. So now, I put in a blank 2 gig stick, it downloads the app, but tells me that the North America 2gb map does not work on my device.. UGH UGH and Freakin UGH!!! I HATE TOMTOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Any one have a work around? Please?

Go 730 not sending a fm signal


If you have made a recent update this may be the reason you may have lost your FM transmission!!

Tom Tom disabled silent FM transmission on these units to comply with the law in certain countries which prohibit these FM transmissions. Later updates configured the units to output lower strength FM transmissions.

There is a possible workaround for this - see this link for a discussion on the issue.

Hope this helps. Thanks for using FixYa

How to activate the map once we have the code?

You can activate products by connecting the unit to a USB port of a computer. If The Tomtom Home application is installed on computer it will launch and update the unit. On page 1 of main Home menus there is an icon for activation.

To make things easy for you I am enclosing a screen capture from the HOME 2.7 application.

How to set up my tom tom one in Greece to travel back through Europe

Unfortunately there is only a limited amount of space on the ONE. You can back up your Tele Atlas maps on a laptop using TomTom Home. As long as you have your maps backed up in TomTom Home, you'll be able to install each set of maps on the fly. It may seem like a hassle, but it's better than having only one set of maps

Hope this will help you.
