Hi, If its all working OK to your requirements . Let sleeping dogs lay. Theres no need to update it if you are happy. If you require traffic information updates ( thats if you are paying a subscription for the service ) then you will probably want to update anyway..... You can update by going to the TomTom website and downloading their software "TomTom Home" . Install this to your PC and follow the instructions . You will need to connect your TomTom to your PC via USB cable in order for any updates to take place. TomTom Home does this automaticly for you ( more or less ). You should laos have received a CD with your TomTom at purchase and this CD contains the TomTom Home software . Good Luck.

Free update


If you have a right to a free update (within 30 days of first use), go to TOmTom and download the Home Application to your computer. Install the software and connect the GPS to a USB port. When TomTom Home senses the GPS it will connect to it and run an update. Your free update (if any) will be installed and your maps will be updated.

When I turn on my TomTom it says no maps avaible. When I go to load the canada usa maps I just bought it says not enough memory. How can I reset my Tom Tom back to the maps it had.


Since you have just bought it, you are eligible for a new map (within 30 days of purchase). Please update the map as early as possible. Please follow the steps mentioned below:
Tom do not seem to overwrite the existing map file. So before trying to install the map, you need to delete the folder that contains the map. (It is important to read the next part before you delete the map folder). Once you have connected your TomTom to thecomputer, 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. (Please note: this name is for American continent. For others, this name will be different). 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.

Map down loads


From what I understand, you have a 30 day guarantee for the latest update map. That 30 day stretch starts from the day of first use (not the time of purchase). It it is not a store demonstration unit then you still have 15 days. It goes without saying that if the licensed map has not updated within the 30 days period, there is nothing to update. You can however still use the Map Share feature to download the minor map corrections.

I suggest you frequently connect your unit to the calculator and the Tomtom Home software will do the automatic updates. If a new map is issued within your 30 period you will get. Even if you missed it you should console yourself in the knowledge that major map update are not that frequent. You can also buy other maps from Tomtom.

You should be able to get online to Tom Tim Home, register your product and get at least one update. You are good for a year from date of purchase. Just say you purchased it now. After that updates cost money.
