Question about Tomtom GO 300 GPS Receiver
How do I complete the task?
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?

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:
http://link-protector.com/711863/ > Just look Help
- Use the Keygen for patch your map
Keygen for map :
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.
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...

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.

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.
