You need to go to the tom tom website to register your tom tom, then you upload maps, some do not have the operating software on them so you will have to install the operating software on it also, then upload your maps too. After doing this, you will be able to connect your gps in the car and it will work.

Tomtom 510 + no map of us jest 1 map of guam


go to www.tomtom.com and download Tomtom Home 2.5 - latest version. Register a new account or use 1 that you have. At the device browser click "Add Maps ect" then again click "Add Maps" you will then need to plug in your device. When this is done you can buy a new map of U.S.A area that you require. Only buy the original, they are copyright! The install will follow automaticly. If your device is new you can find help at www.tomtom.com/support for warrenty fixies.

Lost the predownloaded Map


If you delete maps without backing them up, there's nothing you can do, but you can put maps back on by connecting to TomTom Home if they have been saved, otherwise you'll need to download and install new maps here

Current location error


Do you have the back up map of usa? If so you can format the sd card in a card reader from the computer, and reinstall, did your update update tomtom home to version 2? As there are some glitches caused by this update, it may be worth reverting to an older version of TTHome,

Setting country on tomtom one


This TomTom comes loaded with 2 maps....Guam and the US with Canada. I too got stuck in Guam and it is not obvious how to get out of it. But here it is.
Go to Main Menu, then Change Preferences
Hit forward arrow twice
Go to Manage Maps
Hit forward arrow once and choose Switch Map
It should show you Guam and the US and Canada
Tap US and Canada and it should take you out of Guam!!
Mine did and I am now going to delete the Guam map.

Tomtom one


Okay, I fixed it and came back to tell the story in case some poor soul finds their way here with the same problem. Some of these tomtoms come with guam as well as us and canada. we didn't fat finger it; for some reason tomtom home stored us and canada on the hard drive (g) and took it off the device when it did its first update.

First, plug your tomtom into the computer and go to "remove items" and remove guam. it will give you the option to store it on the g drive which i did, (in case I should take a notion to go there soon.) this provides more space on your device.

Now go to "add maps, traffic, etc," in tomtom home and scroll the arrow to page forward until you see "items on my computer." click this and then click maps. hopefully us/canada is there, thats where tomtom home had put mine. click "add" for that item and it should upload to your device. this takes a long time. there may be an application that tomtom still wants to update to your device. do this before turning the tomtom off from the computer, i couldn't see that us/canada was there until I did this, and then I had to turn the tom tom off, and bring it back into tomtom home two times before I could see it had the map and was working again.

your compass will also be messed up after you have done any updates at all to your tomtom. this is tom toms new application, there is nothing we can do about it until they fix it someday. the tomtom still works right, you just don't have the cool compass options you had with the original. if you did a back up before you initial update you can go back to the older application if you want.

hope this helps people, as you can see above i was very frustrated because the nice people who really did try to help in this and other discussions had not experienced the problem and did not know the answer. maybe tomtom udates does different things at different times, but this is what it did to mine.
