Re: rouble downloading

If you are talking about sending maps from the Mapsource program to the unit, you must select all of the regions you want to use first, and then send them all to the unit at the same time. (They will knit together into one file.) Sending something else afterwards will erase what is already on the unit.

Can I down load from my iPad onto my tomtom

ipad does not have sdcard or micro-SD card slot to transfer to external device.

Verify what type of memory is used on your Tomtom Start 25.
Also verify the max capacity and speed supported.

Prefer a laptop with sdcard carrier with micro-SD to download and transfer file physically or download to pc and transfer via usb cable. See page 95 of the attached manual

How to update my nuvi 200W series (Garmin)

This is not as easy as it seems. I tried to do that when I registered my new unit. In the dowload process (attached to my PC via USB), the site told me I need some special software to manage the download. It looked like some Microsoft product I never heard of. As it finished installing the vector software, the Garmin update maps never got downloaded. Each time I tried, my PC slowed down, to actually crashing ! Rebooting told me it can only come back on in the Safe mode (do drivers). So my only savior was to Reset to a previous date, when all went well. Boy, was that nasty ! Now, my PC runs Vista Premium Home edition using Explorer. I never was happy with Vista. I still have not updated my Garmin, but should soon.
Try their page to see if you qualify.
Maybe your PC will accept the software to load the new maps into your Garmin. Just be ready to reset your computer to a previous user date, so you can fix your Crash.
PS - I had no time yet to alert Garmin Support of this issue. I enjoyed using it in Hawaii. It really helped.

I have an account have tried to down load maps many times. i get a message to contact support. i will not pay more to keep current .

If you have paid for map updates on the Garmin website you should be still able to download them without paying any more.
  • Log into your garmin account.
  • Click on myMaps.
  • Under the name of your map you will see the word "details"
  • Click on details and it will take you to a page where you can download the map again.
You don't say what happens when you try to download the map so I will tell you the solutions to the most common problems.

  1. You need a broad band connection to download the maps as they are very large and take several hours. If you don't have broadband you could contact Garmin and get them to send it to you on a DVD.
  2. Sometimes there's a problem of the download stopping and having to begin from the start again. If you have this problem get "Free Download Manager" from This downloads faster than standard downloaders and if the download stops it resumes from where it stopped.
  3. When you try to download a map it selects to download to your satnav by default. When it shows your satnav it's displayed on a drop-down menu. If you click on the menu you get the option to download to your computer. If the download problem is with your satnav try downloading to your computer. When you do this there's a program called MAPINSTALL set up in a Garmin folder on your computer. When the download is finished click on the windows start button. Then click on GARMIN. Then on MAPINSTALL. This will install the map to your satnav.
  4. Which ever way you try to download the map your satnav must be connected to your computer
I hope some of these solve your problem for you.

Can't view downloaded sections from Garmin Topo

In Map Setup page, scroll over to blue 'ball' icon (second from right), press lower left button on side of GPS unit, use Thumb switch to scroll down to "Show None", click Thumb switch in. All maps will disappear. Press lower left button on side of GPS unit again, scroll down to "Show Topo.....", click Thumb switch in. Your Topo maps should now show onscreen.

The reason your Topo map might not have shown is because, if you leave the Navigator map showing, and then just press "Show Topo", the layer showing Topo will still be under the Navigator map. This is why I always tell it to show none, and then load whatever map I need to see onto a bare screen.

If this solved your problem, please come back and rate our answer as this assists others. Thank you.

I am STILL trying to download the latest Wester Europe Maps to my Go 700. But I have found this answer to your question. Any tips on how I down load the v7.20 to my TomTom? good luck.

When navigating to a location in the UK or The Netherlands you should be able to enter full digit postcodes.
If you are only able to enter 4 digits, follow the instructions below.

  1. Download the file below and save it to your computer.

    downloadbutton.gif (10.5 MB)

  2. Extract the contents of the downloaded file to your desktop (on PC right-click the downloaded file and select Extract to).

    You will now have a folder called 'zip' on your desktop.

  3. Connect your TomTom device to your computer.

  4. If you are using a PC click Start > My Computer and double-click the icon for your TomTom device.

    If you are using a Mac click the icon for your TomTom device on your desktop.

  5. Copy the complete 'zip' folder to your TomTom device.

    Note: The 'zip' folder should be copied to the 'root' of your TomTom device. This means not inside one of the folders.

Roadmate760- freezing

Some CD that came with it hopefully. If you do, then you may be able to stay alive here. Once your system boots to the user screen.. press + and repeat key at the same time.. "secret" menu now. ONLY IF YOU HAVE SOFTWARE TO INSTALL!! Select NAND FLASH FORMAT.. The unit will shut down after formatting. start up your software installer on computer. plug usb1.gif in.. and power on unit. This fix isn't %100, but it's the best shot you have. OR.. you could call customer service and see what they have to say. you'll probably be transferred to overseas.. or get a new mastreo series 4000 or higher.the 700 is no longer servicable that was at the magellan website

--good luck with that
