Question about Tomtom One XL GPS Receiver

1 Answer

System does not boot after update

I have TomTom XL. When I first connected the XL to my computer (MacOSX), it claimed a few useful updates. I agreed. At the end of the update cycle, TomTomHome asked me to execute 3 steps to complete the update (disconnect, reconnect, "say yes to the question asked"). This seems to be an ever recurring loop. TomTomHome uses terminology for these steps that is unclear and ambiguous to me (sorry folks, the computer talks German, no point in repeating this here). Ever since then, the XL shows a blinking red circle with white cross. The application seems to be on the XL; TomTomHome claims an up-to-date map on the XL.

TomTom service sent me what appears to a copy-and-paste answer. It did not help one bit.
...any suggestions?
Cheers, E!

Sat nav Tomtom one xl can I update free


When you connect your TomTom (using the TomTom HOME application on your computer) ... and you sign in to your TomTom account, it will automatically do a scan/search to see if there's any update(s) for your TomTom device.
If you see the an update (available) for your Navigation software, select it and proceed to download and install it. MapShare updates are also identified and can be selected, downloaded and installed (free).
If you're asking whether you can update the map free ... the answer is NO ... not from the TomTom website. You'll have to buy a map update (subscription) and download the new version of the map and install it.

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

My tom tom one xl won't turn on anymore but when I connect to the computer it turns on and shows a picture of a gps. still can't use it though. it is fully charged.


try hitting the reset button with a pin for about 15 seconds (this is located near the memory card slot) switch on to see if it boots up then install the latest updates from tomtom home, good luck
