Question about Tomtom ONE GPS Receiver
I have a Mac. Is that a problem with Tomtom?
There is a Mac version of the Tom Tom Home software so it shouldn't be.

I had a similar problem when trying to update my dad’s old
TomTom Go300. I bought a new map and downloaded TomTom Home 2 (as
instructed on the website) but found that the Go300 was recognised by the computer it wasn't recognised by TomTom's own Home 2 software.
To cut a long story short I uninstalled Home 2 and downloaded Home 1 (from http://www.tomtom.com/plus/service.php?ID=17 Home 1 is the one on the right, listed as being the version of Home you use for Navigator 6).
Then when I switched the Go300 on it was recognised by Home1 - although the new map I had bought wasn't listed as being available for download.
However, I updated the Go300 with the available listed free updates, then switched it off.
Downloaded Home 2 again and switched the Go300 on - this time it was recognised by the computer and the new map I had bought was available to download.
So far so good - the only problem was the the postcode search facility was not the same as it had been - I could now only search the first 4 digits of the postcode. There is a fix for this on the tomtom website:
which I followed and which worked.
Hope this may be of some use to someone! It took me hours to figure it all out. But it's up and running now.
I read and read and re-read the TomTom website looking for any info that would help but came up with nothing. A few hours later and the air thick with torrents of language I didn’t think I was capable of I discovered that I needed to download Home1 first and let the Go300 connect to the computer via Home1 before it would be recognisable by Home2. Okay…
On the website, though, Home1 is listed as being the version you use if you have TomTom Navigator 6. It’s not even called ‘Home 1′. Confusing eh? Anyway, I downloaded that and from there found that I could get my new map onto my Go300. Once the map and other updates were installed and I had switched the thing off I then found that Home2 recognised it at last.
That had to be one of the most ridiculously long-winded things I’ve had to do on a computer, mainly because TomTom’s confusing advice on their website made the whole process so damn difficult. Perhaps they hoped I’d give up and buy a new one? Tsk.

Go to My Computer, then the TomTom drive and click explore. Move your Map folder to the desktop. Then, delete everything on the tomtom drive. Unplug it, plug it back in, and start up Tomtom HOME and install all updates, keep unplugging, plugging back in, and installing updates until there aren't any more updates. Then move your map folder back to where it was on your TomTom drive.
Please rate, Thank you!

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.
