Is it possible to update a gps tom tomgo 300 memory card

Have you gone to the tom-tom web site and downloaded the Tom Tom home? If not I would recommend that first. There are many upgrades and additions there. But I do not believe you can update the 300 without being connected to your computer via usb cable and being on the tom tom site with tom tom home downloaded.
Hope this helps

Tom tom one battery change

I too dropped my tom tom go 300. It appears the battery was disloged as it will only work if attached to another power source; AC Adapter or cigarette plug. Does anyone know how to open the case to check on the battery?

I faced the same problem for tom tom and found that the battery had gone down. I switched it on after connecting to the power source in the Car and it was fine.

If its not battery may have to contact tom tom support.
