Not all TomTom devices will accept an other boot version. You need a modern boot version, before you can upgrade your system. TomTom one with boot version 1, can't be updated. Same could go with very new TomTom devices. I run a GO740 live with Boot 5.51 and software 9.465 xxxxxxx Will accept all modern maps.
Bye the way. almost impossible to downgrade a TomTom.

My 910 won't pick up a GPS signal - any suggestions please?


Backup the Tomtom to your computer. !!!!!!!!
Format the Tomtom hard disk
Logon to Tomtom home and carry out an update
When it has completely finished updating copy the map directory back onto the root of your Tomtom hard disk.

This action forces the Tomtom home site to completely update the program on your Tomtom to the latest applicable application.
This may involve updating the the bootloader as well as the Navcore software.
The maps will go straight back on ok as they should already have been initialised for that device.

Most new Navcores now incorporate the Quickfix which enables the sattelite signal to lock on quicker.
Regular visits to the Tomtom home website will update the quickfix data which really needs to be done weekly as the data expires.

Pressing the reset button also renders the old Quickfix data useless.

If the above does not work then I suggest that you have a hardware problem which would require a professional repair.

Trying to install new flash player,, it tells me that i need to enter root password, ive never put a password on laptop so i cant enter the password as i dont know it,, can i have new password without...


Hi,

It sounds like you have an Acer with the Linux Lumpus OS installed on it.

When it ask's you for the root password the password is root. Just type root into the password box. and then install the flash player.

Cannot get our new Tomtom GPS one 130 to show English in instruct


Connect your device with TomTom Home and access the memory (like if it was an external disk)
Create the following 2 files without ant extension in the root:

cleanflash
runclean

It will reset your devide to the original settings.
When starting it will ask you which language you want to use.

Your Favorites are located in the Map directory in the TomTom.
For example if your using the North American map (North_America).
In a file named MapSettings.cfg.
When you update the map and some times the application this file is overwritten.
I recommend copying the file to the root directory of the TomTom or your computer if changes are made. That way you have a easy back-up of your favorites file.

Unfortunately to recover your old file you may damage other file in the process.

I hope this helps.

New version of software (8.010) takes the compass preferences away. Compass always pointing north is available through the status bar settings. Found this on tomtom support under question, "How do compass settings work?" It has both new and old versions of how to access the compass.
