In tom tom home software that you loaded to the computer there is an option for latest map once you have registered your tomtom with the software and put it on the internet you can chose this option and it will see if there is a newer map than the one currently loaded if you are referring to the promo code that maybe in our box it does not use this anymore

Search tomtom website and download the latest postcode file (it ends .zip) and using windows copy this file to your device and it should work using post codes again. Ensure the file retains the .zip extension as it is not a zip file as one would know a zip file in normal computing to be a compressed file but .zip for the american name for a postcode being a zip code. I cannot remember if this file is copied to the main part of the tomtom or the map so try main part first.

Free maps downlolad


If/when you've just purchased a (brand) new TomTom GPS, you can register it (at the TomTom.com website) and download the latest map (for your device) .... free ... as part of the latest map guarantee.
Whenever you connect your GPS to the TomTom website (via TomTom HOME), you'll get (free) updates to your current map version - ... but they are NOT new versions of the maps.
To get new versions of your (current) map, you'll need to purchase the update (e.g. online, on the TomTom website). Upon paying for it, you will get the activation codes, etc. for you to download, validate and install the maps.

If your GPS has lifetime maps, (after you have registered), you'll be able to connect (via TomTom HOME) to get the latest map release, without requiring any code/password.

NEED UPDATES


Yes, you can get SOME updates for free... indefinetely.

You will need the latest version of TomTom Home software, available for free from www.tomtom.com.

Install the software on your computer BEFORE connecting the TomTom GPC to the USB port of the computer.

The free updates you can get are:

1) "QuickFix" updates. This contains the global positions of GPS satellites, allowing the TomTom GPS to get a faster lock on the GPS satellites (the GPS will get a lock within 5-10 seconds of being turned on, instead of 2-5 minutes on some other GPS brands). It is suggested that you update the QuickFix at least once a week. If you don't do it often, the GPS will just take longer to find the GPS satellites, that's all.

2) Minor updates to your map(s), but only the ones submitted by other TomTom users.

3) Updates to POIs (Points of Interest), such as new stores, malls, gas stations, parking lots, etc.

Whole-map updates ARE NOT FREE

No Map Found


Not knowing how old your unit is I will be shooting in the dark, but here goes. Please tell me you did a backup as instructed when you loaded TomTom Home! If you did, then simply restore your previous maps from there. If you did not do a backup :( then you may have to wait until Tuesday to get in touch with customer service since holiday is upon us. The activation code is or was included in your original packaging that the XL came in. Good luck and always, always, always backup.

Help, this is very frustrating! All I want to do is update my tomtom One XL with the latest maps. my computer has had a virus, and I just got it out of the shop.


Make sure you have Tom Tom Home:

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

Download and install. Use Tom Tom Home to find free maps and additional maps you can purchase.
