Update tom tom go 720 for free


You may be able to get "free" map updates from (illegal) underground sources. But that's not recommended.
Yes, you're right, you can simply get a new TomTom GPS and get the latest map(s) for it. Consider getting a TomTom with lifetime maps ....and you won't have to pay for any map updates.

After having my tom tom for 10 months I finally downloaded the Tom Tom Home and updated my Tom Tom. However, after doing so, I disconnected my Tom Tom and it no longer works. I only have the Tom Tom front...


Probaly you're still within the gaurantee periode, go back to the store and don't tell them that it is you're own fault that you've bricked your tom tom, they only need to know that it stopped to work without anny reason, that this happend with normal use, they should replace it for you or send it back to tom tom to fix it for free.

Next thime don't unplug you're tom tom when it is updating, be patient,
the software tells you when it is finished updating.

Succes.

Tried to update my Tom Tom One by connecting to my


Remove the SD card

The card needs to be formatted properly first that's all,

formatting is better done in a card reader.

Right click on it and select format select FAT32 as the files system

Update your device without the SD card.

Make sure your GPS runs OK without the SD card

Now re-connect the tomtom but don't let tomtom home run. exit TTH if need be.

You now ned to select your tom tom which will also show as a drive.

In windows explorer select tools then folder options.

Click view and tick the box for "show hidden files and folders"
It may warn you but you can ignore it.

then just copy ALL the files from the tom tom to your sd card

DO NOT USE CUT AND PASTE !

Once all the files are on switch off the tom tom and insert the sd card and re-boot
It should now work again
