The problem with that approach is that you cannot transfer maps from another device onto yours without product key activation codes. This is to prevent piracy or abuse of maps on individual devices.

Did you find a good solution?

SOURCE: After update screen just says Problem with map.

Hi, I am a complete ignoramus when it comes to this sort of thing but I am pretty sure that you have the same problem I have, I updated my GPS just like you did because, heck, that is what TOMTOM recommend and hey presto I wound up with an application 'core' of version 8.x trying to access a map with a version of 7.x. Doh! You would have thought the damn install app would figure this out and NOT install wouldn't you ? Great, I barely know how to turn on a computer and I have to deal with this ****! My GPS unit is a GO 720.
Anyway the options were to fess up $100 for the new version map - or, um, well, patch it myself :-)
At this point I decided that I would patch it myself as:  a) I hold TOMTOM completely responsible for buggering up my GPS without warning and  b) I NEED my GPS right now, not whenever TOMTOM get back to me with a reply to my query about why this happened 
Here are the two links I used to patch my GPS, and yes it took a couple of hours to download and  sort it out.

Where it says...
For have a working map you must:
- Patch your 'ttsystem' file and 'Tomtom Home' with this tool:

Password: demonfatal
- Use the Keygen for patch your map
Keygen for map :
http://rapidshare.com/files/187061869/KEYGEN.rar
Password : demonfatal


 (Note I selected this map and it seems to work Australia_815_2086)
The new map would not work until I replaced my 'ttsystem' file with the one from the link below - dunno why.
http://www.gpsunderground.com/forums/showthread.php?t=3619
Remember to use TOMTOM Home to back up your current GPS settings/configuration in case you balls up the patching process - frankly I don't trust TOMTOM Home to do a good enough job so maybe in addition it would be a good idea to connect the GPS to your computer and use something like Acronis to create an image... 
good luck

SOURCE: Upload latest western europe map v7.20 to TOMTOM 700 not possible

I have managed to solve the problem of loading a new map on my Go700 using a Mac. I discovered that Tomtom is incompatible with the Leopad operaying system, despite the protestations of the idiots at Tomtom ,so I reverted to an older Mac using Tiger.
Taking the instructions given to crinold, I tried to erase the disc on the 700 using home 1.5 - and it didn't work. So I went to disc utilities, highlighted and erased the Tomtom disc, and opened home 2,5. After being refused entry several times, like being told to load an already loaded device, I persevered, and managed, slowly, to add the map I had bought for 78 euros. T]One point oif interes is that when I bought the map, they site stated it would cost 63 pounds sterling, but switched it to euros when the invoice arrived. at a rate very favourable to Tomtom - funny, that.
This is sharp practice,probably illegal in many countries,, but, to be honest, dealing with the mysterious Tomtom company is so frustrating, that I don't have the time or inclination to fight them for the money they cheated from me.
How they survive with such an awful product and extremely bad after sales service is hard to understand - perhaps they won't ... we live in hope.

SOURCE: Iv got an backup issue with my tomtom one.after

I do some work with TomTom - it's possible that if something interrupted or went wrong during the install, the map could have been deleted. TomTom is aware of the problem and is working to fix it - if you are map-less, call support (866 486 6866) and we can work on getting you a new map.

I tried to update my unit and got an error message before it was done that the update wasn't completed and now when I turn it on it says I cannot use the USA_Canada map on the device..Stuck


Quote:
We're sorry, but HOME can't complete that task. Please try again later, or contact customer support. For problems with items that are stored on your device, we advise you to remove and re-install the item.
END

To make a long story short, the problem was with the map that is stored on the computer from downloading the latest map guarantee (2 1/3 years ago). In my case, this is the same map as is on the GPS, but it is not complaining about the map on the GPS. If this happens, there are several things that can be done:

1. Accept the message whenever it appears and go on with what you were doing since at least most functions of Home appear to work correctly in spite of it saying that it can't complete the task.

2. If you have a backup of the previous version of TomTom Home, replace the updated version in the Applications folder with the backup version. This will return behavior to what it was before the update, without the error messages.

3. Remove the map folder (e.g., USA___Canada) from your Documents->TomTom->HOME->Download->complete->map folder. You may want to save this someplace so that you can put it back when TomTom releases an update to Home that works correctly.

Hope helps.

Tried to install the free map update/upgrade(North America) on my new XL 335-S and now have no maps at all. The install showed an error and now when I try again, I am notified that there is not enough room...


There is this problem with TomTom. Tom do not seem to overwrite the existing map file. So before trying to install the map, you need to delete the folder containing map. Once you have connected your TomTom to the computer, close the TomTom home window. Double click on my computer. You will see the TomTom hard drive as a drive (like you see the CD drive) double click on that . Once the folders of the TomTom hard drive opens, look for a folder named USA_Canada_and_Mexico_P. Right click on it. click properties. Check whether the size of this folder is approximately around 1.3 GB to 1.5 GB. This is just to make sure we have the correct folder. After confirming this is the map folder, copy this folder to your computer for back up purpose. Once you have it safely in your computer, delete this folder from the TomTom hardrive. Go back to TomTom home software. Use the map guarantee to update/Upgrade the new map. You will see this time around the installation completes without a problem.

2) You will then need to connect your GPS unit via the provided USB cable to your PC/Laptop withTomTom Home running and connected to the internet.

3) Your current MAP can then be updated via the 'Update' selection. Any other 'system' files will also be updated automatically using this function.

4) Using TomTom Home, you can also download free add-ons such as 'Voices' and 'Colors schemes'.

If you just bought the unit within 3 months, you can update to the latest Map free of charge using 'Latest Map Guarantee' function in TomTom Home otherwise, there are NO FREE ADDITIONAL FREE MAPS.

I had the same problem how ever after downloading all the software updates and pretty well evey thing that was available on the tomtom home sight suddenly the map was there. It could be a soft ware bug.
