Question about Tomtom ONE GPS Receiver

1 Answer

I can't install the access to tom tom home through my laptop.

I attempted to go to Tom Tom Home to obtain updates using my laptop that had not been used for this process for a number of months. The gps attempted to install the software again, but could install one of the .exe files. I would like to have the software reinstalled.

    Thank you for your suggestions, but I discovered that when I linked to TomTom via a hard line versus a wireless connection I was able to download the execution file. I also updated my profile since I had my TomTom repaired. Instead of repairing it, the device was replaced and my new one was not linked to my account. Got it all done now.



    Thanks

Tom Tom only has Guam map since update


That is really strange!
I can only suggest that you verify what MAPs are physically on your TomTom device by connecting it to a PC/LAPTOP and use Windows Explorer to look at your GPS drive folders: should see a folder for each 'country' (like GUAM).
The normal way to check which maps are registred and loaded on your device is to use TomTom Home -> Update maps function: it will show you the status or whereabout of any Maps that you have loaded or backup and which one can be purchased.
Hope it helps: let me know how you go.
ps.i f you wisely backup your device on a regular basis (via TomTom Home or direct copy to your PC/LAPTOP), you could always RESTORE FROM BACKUP and start again.

Up date maps


To update maps you should run Tom Tom home on your computer and then connect the GPS

It will then ask you if you want to connect to the computer and you would tell your GPS yes.

Tom Tom home will once it finds your GPS then proceed to do any minor updates.

If your map is out of date it will offer you the option of purchasing a newer version.

don't be tempted to look for free / pirate maps !
These can cause problems in starting up your GPS (believe me)

Tom Tom map prices are not too bad and compared to many GPS are quite easy to install using Tom Tom home.

If you don't have Tom Tom home the latest version can be found here.

Tom tom home does not see my tom tom go 520


Hi canal_boat_m

Try this solution:

STEP 1 Un-install Tom Tom Home from your PC

STEP 2 Click on the link below:

http://tomtom.com/lib/img/cs/S4S/files/RemoveRegEntries_TTGOv1.exe
This will download a little removal program for the Tom Tom Home program.
A Black window will appear briefly then close.
• Make sure that you have got Administrator rights on the PC. Otherwise you may not be allowed to connect new hardware (especially the case when using office computers)
• Reboot your PC

STEP 3 Visit Tom Tom website and download the current new version of Tom Tom Home and install it to your PC
STEP 4 Connect the TomTom

• Make sure the device is fully charged before connecting it to the computer. Ideally a mininum of 4 hours charge.
• Reset the device using a paper clip (see http://www.tomtom.com/6965). When resetting, keep the reset button pushed in for at least 20 seconds, but DO NOT turn the device back on just yet.
• Ensure that your TomTom has power connected to it. There should be a green light on the TomTom unit. If your device came with a Home Charger, please make sure that is plugged in to the TomTom also.
Your Tom Tom should ask you to 'Connect to Computer' if it does tap YES.

SOLUTION:
Your unit should now be recognized by your PC.

IF IT DOESN'T then follow the instructions below:

1. Connect your unit to your PC;
2. Copy two folders to your PC (namely 'Raster' and the one which holds all your maps - probably called 'United Kingdom and Eire';
3. Using Windows Utility, right click on the Tom Tom drive unit and select Fomat;
4. Switch off the unit and soft-reset it with a paper clip (but hold it in for at least 20 mins) and then re-connect it and power it up;
5. Tom Tom Home should now detect the unit and your unit should ask you to 'Connect to Computer' so tap YES;
6. Tom Tom Home will now say your device needs updating - and if you apply all the changes it will restore it to Factory Finished!
7. Then all's needed is to replace the two folders you backed up and any other items like mp3's and sounds, pics, etc.

Re: my tomtom go 920 I have connected my tomtom My pc keeps telling me to go to your home support in order to reinstall the home programme. The reason is error 0: Process failed to start up correctly....


There was an old Tom Tom Home (1.5 I think) and it is now Tom Tom HOME 2. If the icon has a little inward-facing arrow on the left-hand, lower corner then it is only a shortcut and you can safely delete them. You can always start the program by using Start, All Programs, Tom Tom etc.

Create a Restore point so you can undo the following changes and call it something like 'Pre Tom Tom HOME 2 update'.


Go to this web page:

http://www.tomtom.com/services/service.php?id=16&tab=87

and download the Windows version of Tom Tom HOME 2 and install the software. Tell the installing software to remove the old version of Tom Tom HOME - you won't need that any more.

Start up Tom Tom HOME 2 from the new shortcut icon that will now be on your Desktop and it should work unless you have an addition problem with your PC.

If it all goes wrong Restore your computer back to the Restore point you created above and you are back to where you started before you did anything.
