Connect the unit to the PC, in "My Computer" (if PC) look for your TomTom, format it, and download TomTom Home. There will be some message, that the program needs to download some data to restore your unit, accept it. Contact me directly if there will be any questions: service@gps.pol.pl

Traveling through Colorado and it can't find a satellite for the last 45 minutes. Using it in a semi truck


This issue might occur due to the QuickGPSFix data or the application on the device being corrupted.


To correct the issue, we will need to clear the Download, Ephem and Empheris folder contents.


The 'Downloads' folder will now need to be cleared. The steps to perform this are listed below:


1) Click 'Start' and go to 'My Documents'.

2) In 'My Documents' there is going to be a TomTom folder, open this.

3) There should now be a HOME folder, open this.

4) There will now be a 'From Device' folder, delete this entire folder.

5) Once this folder is deleted, open the 'Downloads' folder and delete everything inside of it.


Now let us delete the Ephemeris folder contents from the computer first, since it saves the GPSFix information. If this information is corrupted, it can prevent the device from acquiring the satellite signals and locking onto them.


To do so:

1. Unplug the TomTom device from computer (if connected).

2. Fully Exit TomTom HOME.

3. Locate the "Ephemeris" folder in the following location on your computer:


Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\My Documents\TomTom\HOME\Download\complete

Windows Vista: C:\Users\<username>\Documents\TomTom\HOME\Download\complete

Macintosh: Macintosh HD/<username>/Documents/TomTom/HOME/Download/complete


4. Select all the contents of ephemeris folder and delete them.


Close that window and connect the TomTom device to the computer. Then open [My Computer] and double click on TomTom Drive icon to open. Delete the contents of Ephem folder. This should delete the contents of GPSFix from the device as well.


You can then update the device to download the latest device updates, which will automatically include the QuickGPSFix update. Hence forth the device should detect the GPS signals correctly

Hi, I was having trouble too and have found the manual for the 3rd edition online

  • If the pop-up window does not appear, browse to the TomTom device on your computer and run the file named Install TomTom HOME.
  • TomTom HOME is also available for download from the TomTom website.
  • For more information visit www.tomtom.com/home
  • Once installed, TomTom HOME will start automatically whenever you connectyour TomTom to your computer.

Hope this helps, Lynsey

TomTom One V3 - Problem connecting to TomTom Home


I have the same problem in NL.. TT Home has problems downloading over Wireless connections.
Try connecting the computer to the internet via a cable. You may have to restart TTHome or maybe even your PC. The download should be quicker and more reliable :)

The problem is related to the MTU size and working around that can be very technical.

Hi swissdom,

There are free downloads / updates of tomtom firmware from the tomtom home site but as far as I know there are no free updates for maps. The firmware updates can be performed using tomtom home software that came with your tomtom or by going to http://www.tomtom.com/plus/service.php?ID=17

You will need to connect your tomtom to your PC via USB and have the SD card in as the update will perform updating of certain files on the card.

The update will allow better function and enable faster fixes on satellite's and also iron out any reported bugs that have become known to tomtom so its well worth doing.

Good Luck

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 wezipcodes715.zip (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.

No maps found on tom tom one new edition


this problem just happened to me. i'd just bought my new tomtom one and tested it on the journey home. all was well and i was really impressed. that was until I got it home and went to update it to get the latest maps for my area. I installed all the software as instructed by the on screen prompts and downloaded the latest updates. i then went to turn the device on, and was greeted by a message stating ''no maps found!''

after almost two hours of complete frustration, i then tried probably the easiest solution anyone could think of:

First of all, connect the device to your computer and close down tom tom home. (making sure it isn't even open in the system tray).

Now, open my computer and find the device. it will be labelled as a storage device (mine was drive G). Open it up and find where the maps are saved to. Something like, UK and Ireland, or something similar relating the place you live. Once located, delete them manually.

Now, reopen tomtom home and go to tools. Click ''use latest map guarantee''. It will then download the maps again and install them onto the device.

Next disconnect using the option 'disconnect device'' from the device menu.

Finally turn on your tom tom if it doesn't automatically, and you should be back in business. This worked for me, after trying numerous way more complicated solutions I found in various forums.

Hope it works for you too!
