Can't load Map update on TomTom XL 330S

When I tried to do an update to the current maps I received message 'There is not enough free space on your device. (-15.0 Mb) I then went in, copied the USA_and _Canada folder to my computer, then deleted the contents on the TomTom, which gave me 888 Mb of free space. But i go tthe same error again (this time (-18.9Mb)

HELP!!!

You'll have to remove enough stuff to make room for the new map. I had the same problem which is how I found this site. Turns out, the new map is larger than the one that came on the unit. The 1 GB of available space is pretty much all used when you get the GPS. Just copy all the voices and POIs that you aren't planning on using to your computer in case you change your mind later (you can just download them again for free too). As for the voices, only one works for text-to-speech anyway and that would be Samantha though a male voice is available for download.

You'll need to clear just under 4 MB to make room for the new map, and that's if you haven't added anything. Having the drive/memory on this unit just larger than the map makes it very difficult to get much use out of TomTom's great add-ons.

Your Tom Tom has 1 gig in it. You can remove points of interest to free enough room as well as voice you are not using. This will free enough room.

THE PROBLEM IS THAT THE .DAT FILE CONTAINS MORE DATA that's why it's called tomtom data binary file.
Try to edit some of the poi's and delete the traffic then you can add it again from tt HOME 2.6

Cannot get my tomtom xl 330s reset not enough free space


If there's data (items) on your TomTom that you can remove/delete, like music, photo's, images, (useless/not needed) maps, favorites, etc. it will give you more "disk" space to work with.

You can back up the data (using the TomTom HOME application) before you remove the items from your device.

Make a backup first on your hard drive not tomtom home of all the files on the GPS

then log on to tomtom home for updates

there will be a option to delete some of the things you do not need

many Foreign voices

then there will be enough space for updates

Xls 330s tom tom no map


Connect the GPS to the computer. Forget the Tom Tom home for a little while. Use the windows explorer or file manager. Check whether the TomTom is shown as a drive. If yes, Right click on it. Then click properties. Check how much is the used space and how much is the free space. If you see that there is only about 50MB free space, that could be the reason. Tomtom update do not seem to overwrite the map file. Now check the properties of the new map file. It may be approximately around 1.3 GB to 1.5 GB. Since I do not have a Europe map I do not have the correct size. If the new map size is anything bigger than the available space on your GPS drive, then the update will not complete and crash. Solution. Copy the existing map (North American map has a name something like USA_Canada_and_Mexico_P) folder to your computer. Once you have a secure copy, delete this map folder from your GPS drive. You will now see that you have approximately 1.7GB of free space. copy the map folder from your CD to your GPS drive. Once copying is complete, safely remove the GPS from USB port. Restart and try it out on a known route to check efficiency.

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.

Xl 330s will not locate/display maps, just a blank screen saying "no maps found"


suspect that your maps file is corruped or lost. this may have occured due to a drop or other inteference such as high magnetic field or eletromagnetic interference.
if you connect your tomtom to your pc you can view inside to see if the maps are in the device. if they are not then you may have to redownload them from any map software you had or from the TOMTOM website using tomtom home.

Are there any new update maps for my new 340 s Tom Tom


If you bought your TomTom brand new, the first time you installed the TomTom Home software, you may have received a message that a free map upgrade was available. If you did not receive that message, then either the unit is up to date, or it was not new.
You can check the version of map you're using by going to the TomTom Home software, and from the main menu, click the "More" button to get to page 2. From there, choose "Manage my ONE XL", and click on the "Items on Device" tab.
Click the "+" sign to the left of the word "Maps", then click the "More Info" link to discover the version of map you are using. The most current version (as of December 1, 2009) is 840.2568.
If that is not your version and you believe you're entitled to it, call TomTom technical support and state your case. Otherwise, if you want this version of map, you will need to purchase it.
When trying to load a new map onto your device, make sure you first run the backup routine (in TomTom Home) to back up the old map. After downloading a new map, but before it can be installed, you'll need to remove the old map, since there isn't enough room on the device to have both maps loaded simultaneously.
Hope this helps.
