They send it back to me saying no problem found on the device. Pl help me if there is any way I can download the map. I don't have the back up on my computer. thanks

My new tom tom go 300 gps has nosd card with maps


If you don't have maps, you can't navigate.

So: Get an SD card. Download the maps.

Question for you: How did you wind up with a navigator with no card and no maps? You might consider taking it back to the place you bought it and exchange it for one with the minimum necessary to make it work.

Tomtom not reacting


If you deleted your card your program is more than likely lost along with all of your maps. However never fear. If you had an account with tomtom you should be able to download a file from them that can update your sd card, But be aware they will probally charge you. Make sure to tell them that you were downloading one of THEIR updates.

I MADE A MISTAKE AND DOMN LOADED A MAPE TWICE AND LOST CONTACT TO


If you backed up your tom tom then restore it from that backup. Two maps should not stop you from getting to the tom tom home web but may stop the home application working properly.

If you have an SD card in remove it and try again if all is good then try put the sd card in a reader rather than the tom tom and make the required deletions from there. Or if you DO have a backup then format the card properly and then restore to it whilst it is in the reader. Then put it back in the tom-tom and you should then be back to where you need

When I switch on my TomTom, SD card has a red cross?


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 update.

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

Tom tom 300


"My tom tom wonts switch on. I have reset it and still it comes on with a boom boom noise and shows the 2 hands on the screen. It also shows the loading bar at the bottom, but then it just freezes and nothing happens. can anyone help please ASAP"

Sound as though your Map data card is corrupt. Remove the SD card and check it with your computer using a card reader. Backup the SD card onto your computer. You can run either chkdsk or go to the drive letter under 'My Computer' right click and select properties, then tools, then check now. You can also try starting the Tomtom with the SD card out of the unit. It should show a picture of the Tomtom with a 'X'. You can also try copying the data on the SD card to another SD card.
