Question about Tomtom GO 700 GPS Receiver
I got a go 300 and ricently bought a one XL. I had the western europe maps on an SD card for the 300 and upgraded them but I cannot make the card work on the XL. I have the codes for the maps and everything. but when I insert the SD card if just reads the Cannary island map and not the western europe. I have a back up in my computer but it says that it is restricted and that i cannot downloaded to the XL. Please help me. I need the western europe maps to work on the XL. I wrote to tomtotm but so far no answer.
First make sure you have a backup of your NEW ONE XL. You should be able to connect your XL to your PC using USB but not use TomTom home software. Your TomTom should appear in "my computer" as a drive . OR , put the SD card in a USB reader connected to a PC , that way you can look at and copy from or to the SD card.
You should be able to copy the map you have to the SD card directly ( if there is enough room on it ) , if theres not enough room , get a new bigger card , copy all the backup files you already have on your PC + the map you want. You might / should be then able to activate that map in the XL using the codes you say you have for the maps. if you try to do this using TomTom home it might have some restiction to stop you activating the required map but hopefully you should be able to do it manually as described above rather than use TomTom home. ... GOOD LUCK .
