Hi,

Make sure that your music on your sd card is 'mp3' format.
Also make sure that your music is in a folder named 'mp3'.

Hope this help.

Tomtom shows a red cross over the SIM card and will not turn on.


This means it is not reading the SD card and that it needs to be re-formatted.

This is best done in a card reader and not the tomtom itself.
Right click on it and select format select FAT32 as the files system

Now connect the tomtom but don't let tomtom home run. exit TTH if need be.
You now need to select your tom tom which will also show as a drive.

In windows explorer select tools then folder options. Click view and tick the box for "show hidden files and folders"
It may warn you but you can ignore it.

Then just copy ALL the files from the tom tom to your SD card

DO NOT USE CUT AND PASTE !

Once all the files are on switch off the tom tom and insert the SD card

It should now work

My tom tom displays a red cros through memory card whe switching it on.I have tried reseting it and inserted card into pc but even pc wont read it.The pc shows there are used space on card but wont let me...


The card may have become corrupted or has failed. You can try to recover it so you can copy off the files but that isn't always succsessfull. Go to my computer. Find the card right click then click on properties and then the tools tab and then click on error checking.

time to get a new sd card even if you can restore and read the original. Once they act up they can die again and permanently at any time.

Tom Tom sim card error


Hi.

You need to replace the SIM card located on a slot at the side of your GPS.

Before replacing the SIM try turning off the TomTom, removing and reinserting the SIM.

The card can be purchased at any TomTom authorized seller, or contacting TomTom online.

720 go wont let me download music onto it wont let me operate it on the computer


Have you installed an expansion memory card in the 720? Sometimes it wont let you download music because you have filled up the internal memory. You need to put music on to the separate expansion card. BUT... when connecting to the computer to update map corrections and software, if you have not selected INTERNAL MEMORY when it connects, it won't be able to find the tom tom software, so it will just think you have another external USB hardrive attached. SO... take the expansion card out of the tom tom, then connect the tom tom to the computer in the normal way - Voila, suddenly it now sees the tom tom and you can update software. But do not download any more music to the internal memory. Ultimately you will have to format the EXTERNAL expansion card to clear it of any tom tom software updates, then download ONLY MUSIC to the external card. Do not hit Update My Tom Tom while connected to the external card - only do this when connected to the internal memory.

You now ned to select your tom tom which will also show as a drive.

Tom tom one Xl wont load


Hi,maybe that the memory card is knackered! (tomtom ones are poor quality and slow) Have you got a spare card that you use in a camera maybe, if so format it using fat 32 on your computer and then copy and paste all your files one by one onto it. I this works I would recommend a sandisk ultra 2 as a replacement card, worked for me!
