I Have a Tom Tom One XL which does NOT have an American map. I have tried to change it but I get Guam and everything else. I have down loaded the Tom Tom Home but it does not seem to transfer to my device

    Same deal. Worked fine, went in and installed the guaranteed up to date map. Then all that I got was a map of Guam. Showed that I had US but it is missing the cfg file. Think the update might be corrupt.

I've been chasing the same problem. My TomTom One only shows Guam maps even though I can see the other maps in the unit from my PC (both by looking at the TomTom as a USB memory device and by using TomTom Home software to see what's installed).

This happened after I downloaded the "latest map guaranteed" map.

Tried all the solutions posted but the one that finally worked for me was to keep updating my TomTom's software using TomTom Home until there were no more updates available After the update tonight, everything now works again.

I did a two backups tonight (using TomTom Home and via Windows directly). Given the really flakey nature of the software (at one point in my journey I got the dreaded red X and took days to fix that) I think I will not connect my unit again. I don't trust TomTom not to turn it into a "brick" again so I’ll live with things as they are.

Reinstall TomTom Home and you should be able to update the maps. TomTom's customer support is also very helpful and can troubleshoot you through the issue- http://us.support.tomtom.com/cgi-bin/tomtom_us.cfg/php/enduser/std_alp.php

My tom tom one xl seems to have gone back to set up mode so i go through the options but when i get to the option for choosing a voice it freezes and then returns to the begining of set up again i have...


One of the voices you added from the computer is corrupt. Plug the tomtom back in to the computer and remove the customer voices one by one till you find the one that is corrupt. If you can't do this using the tomtom app, reply and I will find out where the files are and tell you which ones to delete from the momory.

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.

Tom tom go 720


I have exactly the same problem. Everything worked fine until I did a software upgrade. I have tried the reset suggestion but it has not fixed the problem. I have been told that a possible solution is to install the version of the OS that was there prior to the upgrade but I cannot find this anywhere

Setting country on tomtom one


This TomTom comes loaded with 2 maps....Guam and the US with Canada. I too got stuck in Guam and it is not obvious how to get out of it. But here it is.
Go to Main Menu, then Change Preferences
Hit forward arrow twice
Go to Manage Maps
Hit forward arrow once and choose Switch Map
It should show you Guam and the US and Canada
Tap US and Canada and it should take you out of Guam!!
Mine did and I am now going to delete the Guam map.

Activation code missing from secondhand tomtom, think its a 500 go


I have managed to load a downloaded map onto two separate Tomtom one XL devices. I did it through tom tom home. I purchased , downloaded and installed the map on my first device. Then connected my second device to my computer. In TOM TOM Home I then changed my device using the Device menu / Change device. it then allowed me to load the map onto a second TOM TOM device.
