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

Hi I have a to tom go 500. The voices worked fine when I tested it in New Zealand. I then downloaded the Europe map, assumed all was well but on arriving in Europe I find that I cannot get the voice...


It may be possible that the (Europe) map version that you have doesn't have voice instructions (data) that is compatible with the navigation software (that you have on the TomTom GO 500). If you can indicate the navigation software version and the Europe map version, that possibility can be checked further.

Invalid version of TomTom application installed on your TomTom device. To use HOME you need to install the correct version of the TomTom application''


For users with Smartphones, Pocket PCs etc using TomTom Navigator 6,7 or 8. Please do the following...

If you have installed the application TomTom Navigator to your SD/MMC Storage card as supposed to your device storage then you need to uninstall TomTom Navigator. This will not affect your maps etc. These stay on your stotage card. After you have unistalled TomTom Navigator. Reinstall it but this time when asked where you wish to install it select Device, do NOT install it to the storage card.

Once done lauch TomTom Navigator and follow the setup instructions. Enable Map Share if you you want to use it. When you are finished with configuring the setup close TomTom. Connect your device to your PC/Laptop and open TomTom Home. The error message should now be gone plus if you were not recieving map updates and map shares etc you will now.

Down loading Europe on my TomTom 1/3


Yes you can I have europe and canada on mine.

just plug your tomtom into your computer and start tomtom home

On the computer screen for tomtom select ADD MAPS

Here you can select and buy the maps you need.

Once you have confirmed the purchase you will be given instructions on how to download etc

Some maps may take a little time to install to the tomtom itself.

you should also ensure there is enough space on your tomtom
If not you will have to get an SD memory card.

I use a 4gb one that still has lots of room to spare

I recently uploaded a tomtom map to my tomtom 1 series 3. Do I need to remove the map of England before I can get access to the french map?


Since you TomTom only has a 1 gb flash drive you will have to remove the map of England to put the map of France on your TomTom One Third Edition. Make sure you make a backup of your map of England or you will have to purchase a new map of England Do not use TomTom Home to do this simply make a new folder on your desktop. Connect your TomTom to the PC. Next go to "My Computer" and open the drive of your TomTom. After opening the drive of your TomTom copy your map of England and paste it into the new folder you made on your desktop. When you are ready to put the map of England back onto your TomTom just copy and paste the map of France into the new folder and copy and paste the map of England back into your TomTom.

Tomtom go 730:no maps found...


It was the first time I loaded uppdate maps (for free, because new navigator) and then it
was blocked with the message:no maps found, when trying to start it...My last try was to put
the navigator on his usb support and opening" TomTom HOME" program, connected to "map share"
and loaded some tips, removed it "safely" from the usb connection and it showed the right
view again...Puhhh. Thanks anyway, your site gived quite som motivation.

Have a nice 2009!

There is a new feature with tom tom called Map share. Check to see if this is available on this model. Basically it enables other users to post new directions and updates the device for you.

Tomtom 1 (new edition) map of europe


I think you'll find that you can download it from tomtom home, with full technical help online & on the phone.

I dont advise COPYING it from a friend as you will get a symbol appear on the screen with a tomtom SD card with a large red cross through it, indicating that the tomtom knows its not a genuine copy.
