Visit www.tomtom.com and download Tomtom Home 2.5 for your system. You will need favourites stored to access favourites tab and likewise with the home tab. If you believe that your installation of the CD went bad uninstall Tomtom Home first before visiting www.tomtom.com .

Tomtom home does not recognise device


Plug it in to the PC. Open the PC program. After it is fully loaded, turn on the Tom Tom. You must choose the option to Operate the device. When you are done, make sure you wait until it is shut down, before you disconnect it. Take it outside and try it.

Unable to update Tom Tom in windows vista keep getting error 1060 any solutions?


perform the following:
type the following three lines in to the Command window:


%SystemDrive%
cd "%ProgramFiles%\TomTom HOME 2"
xulrunner\HOMERuntime.exe -app xul\application.ini


To avoid having to type these lines every time you start HOME:

Right-click your desktop and choose New > Text Document - enter the commands provided above and then save the file as RunTTH.bat
copy this file to the TomTom HOME 2 folder in C:\Program Files (you will require Administrator rights to do this)
in the Start menu, right click on the TomTom HOME 2 icon.
select Properties
in Target, change "C:\Program Files\TomTom HOME 2\TomTomHOME.exe" to "C:\Program Files\TomTom HOME 2\RunTTH.bat”

The icon will change and HOME 2 should now run normally on your PC.
Please note that links like "Send to TomTom device" or "Add to TomTom" won't work because they rely on TomTomHOME.exe (which this workaround by-passes).
A full fix for this error will be implemented in a future HOME update.


NOTE: for 64 bit Vista change the second line of code to:

cd "%ProgramFiles(x86)%\TomTom HOME 2"

TOMTOM/how to delite address in favorite?


If you mean delete addresses in favorite then

tap 'Manage favourites' to delete any favourite locations that are no longer needed. You can also rename them, if you wish. Use Arrow-head up and Arrow-head down to scroll up and down the list and pick the one you want to change or delete.

and i am not sure which TomTom Go you have (maps preloaded only go700 and go910 no memory card slot), you can download manual

go to tomtom website ----> support scroll down at the right hand side click Find downloads

I Have no CD-ROM for the Tomtom GO 720 I just purched.


The cd that normally comes with your TomTom is to load TomTom Home onto your computer, and maybe the owners manual, both of which you can download for free from TomTom.

Loading TomTom one maps for northern France


Hi,
First you need to have the relivent map on your SD card. Typicly this will be the Tomtom Map " Western Europe ". When you purchase maps from TomTom you also get an activation code and instructions telling you how to install the map onto your device and how to authorise it using the code that comes with it.
Before doing anything ... BACK-UP your existing data ( the whole SD card ) onto your computer . This will ensure that if any update is unsuccesful you can at least return things to the way they were before you tried to update.
There are several ways to obtain maps
  • buy a new TOMTOM SD card for your tomtom that containes the required maps. Make sure it comes with the authorisation card.
  • buy a CD from TomTom or a TomTom authorised dealer . This CD will contain the required map so you can download the required map to your own SD card. Make sure it comes with the authorisation code AND instructions.
  • buy the required map from TomTom online . You can download it to your PC , then copy it onto your SD card later. It will come with some instructions and authorisation code ...... You can also use "TomTom Home" software and this does most of the job of downloading maps ( that you buy from tomtom ) and puts them onto your sd card for you in a semi-automatic way . If you go down this route then its best to be sure you have the latest version of TomTom home software by going to the TomTom website first.
With ANY of the above methods------- BACK UP your existing SD card first . In fact ... make a BACK UP NOW , then if anything goes wrong at any time , you can at least revert back to your backup.

Good Luck

My tomtom receiver is frozen on the start screen.


Connect your TomTom to the USB cable then turn on your TomTom in that order. Go to "My Computer" and open the drive that is your TomTom. Copy and paste your map folder to the desktop. Delete everything on your TomTom (don't format). After deleting everything on your TomTom. Open TomTom Home. TomTom Home will tell you, you need an application for your TomTom. Let TomTom Home load the application. You will probably have to do this at least 2 times to get the latest application for your device. After TomTom Home has loaded the latest application for your device closer TomTom Home and copy and paste your map back onto your TomTom. You should be ready to go after doing this. Make sure you do not skip a step when doing this.

Frozen tomtom


You can get your original splash scren from here. You can also download free splash screens created by user through TomTom HOME.

To correct your device, try:

1. Hit the reset button on the back of the device - inside the serial connector.
2. Make sure the device is off and connect it to your computer via USB dock and connect the charging cable (green light should be on)
3. Hold down the power button until the device restarts.
4. The device should automatically connect to your computer.
5. Run TomTom HOME and check for any updates.
6. If there is no new application, try: www.tomtom.com/9091 <-- that will show you how to remove and then reinstall the application.

Upload latest western europe map v7.20 to TOMTOM 700 not possible


I have managed to solve the problem of loading a new map on my Go700 using a Mac. I discovered that Tomtom is incompatible with the Leopad operaying system, despite the protestations of the idiots at Tomtom ,so I reverted to an older Mac using Tiger.
Taking the instructions given to crinold, I tried to erase the disc on the 700 using home 1.5 - and it didn't work. So I went to disc utilities, highlighted and erased the Tomtom disc, and opened home 2,5. After being refused entry several times, like being told to load an already loaded device, I persevered, and managed, slowly, to add the map I had bought for 78 euros. T]One point oif interes is that when I bought the map, they site stated it would cost 63 pounds sterling, but switched it to euros when the invoice arrived. at a rate very favourable to Tomtom - funny, that.
This is sharp practice,probably illegal in many countries,, but, to be honest, dealing with the mysterious Tomtom company is so frustrating, that I don't have the time or inclination to fight them for the money they cheated from me.
How they survive with such an awful product and extremely bad after sales service is hard to understand - perhaps they won't ... we live in hope.
