The easiest thing to do is disable the firewall for a moment to see if that is the real problem. TomTom home should be setting itself to get through the firewall. If not you can create an exception in the firewall settings to allow it to talk to the GPS.

Can't connect my mobile phone to TomTom


Since the phone worked before the visibility issue is unlikely to be the cause. Try plugging your TomTom into your computer. In the my tomtom software, select manage my TomTom. Now find and select the item about mobile phone settings and delete it. That should fix the problem when you next ask the TomTom to set up a connection with your phone.

My computer no longer recognises my TomTom Go 530 so I can no longer contect it to the computer for upgrades and MP3 additions. I haven't tried reinstalling it from scratch yet. Would this help?


Had the same problem after using latest Home download and then next PC boot could not recognise tomtom. Fixed by pushing the reset on the bottom of the TomTom. Then connected to the PC again and all works

TomTom Home


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:

http://www.tomtom.com/support/index.php?Language=1&query=postcode&FID=9852

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.

TomTom Home not detecting my internet connection


I had this problem, it wouldn't detect through the Norton Security. Once I disabled that temporarily it worked fine.

Word of warning though, make sure you back up your device BEFORE you even try to do the latest maps update.

I received my tomtom yesterday. I logged on and tried to download updates. It downloaded a map for Guam and erased my US map and everything I had saved.

When I tried to go back in and erase the Guam map and put back on the US map, it tells me that the map I need is 903MB and I only have 117MB available.

I erased everything that was on my tomtom hoping to free space and start over, but I still only have 133.9MB available.

I am beyond frustrated and loved this product...until I got online.

TomTom Home does not recognise device


Have you created a TomTom account? For each device you own it needs its own e mail address which it links to and you need to be logged in when you plug in your Tomtom.
