Sat nav Tomtom one xl can I update free


When you connect your TomTom (using the TomTom HOME application on your computer) ... and you sign in to your TomTom account, it will automatically do a scan/search to see if there's any update(s) for your TomTom device.
If you see the an update (available) for your Navigation software, select it and proceed to download and install it. MapShare updates are also identified and can be selected, downloaded and installed (free).
If you're asking whether you can update the map free ... the answer is NO ... not from the TomTom website. You'll have to buy a map update (subscription) and download the new version of the map and install it.

Sorry wrong Question.......I'm really frustrated right now. I have a TOMtom XL 30 Series that will now show nothing but a Big Red X when I plug it into my Truck.....HELP !!!!!


It is quite common tomtom bug.
Do: 1. backup restore or 2. copy all original SD files to your new formated SD card. Restart TomTom and see if it works.

Downloaded updates and now it only goes to "no maps found" screen and does not respond to taps.


Newer maps are not readable by older device software. Please upgrade your TomTom application to the latest version.
  1. Make sure that you have the latest version of TomTom HOME installed.
    • If TomTom HOME is already installed click on Help > Check for TomTom HOME Update.
    • If you do not have TomTom HOME installed, you can download the program fromwww.tomtom.com/home.
  2. Connect your device to your computer.
  3. Open TomTom HOME.
  4. If updates are not offered automatically, click on Update my device.
  5. Download all available updates, restart your device and then reconnect your device to the computer.
  6. When the updates have finished installing use Device > Disconnect Device.
  7. Repeat steps 4 through 6 until the update window shows 'No Items Available'.
Now that you are up to date with your application, check to see if the device still displays the NoMaps Found error under normal operation.

Hi, The best way to update your TomTom is to download the latest TomTom Home software and install it. Once installed, attached your TomTom to the PC via USB and register it with TomTom Home. From within TomTom Home, get the latest software download and install it to your TomTom. This works for me.

Cheers

My tomtom go 700 is about 5 years old and i need to update the maps how do i start?


1.First of all check that TOMTOM actually still support this product and only perform updates using a wired network connection - WIFI can drop out and corrupt the downloads
2.Then see if they actually are supplying a new map for the 700
3.Without activating TOMTOM Home, plug your GO700 into your PC and let it recognise the 'drive assignment'
4.Take a FULL backup of all files on the TOMTOM 2Gb disk on your PC NOTE: this is totally separate and additional to any backups you might make with TOMTOM Home.
5.Disconnect your TOMTOM
6.Start your TOMTOM Home software and perform an update check from the 'help' drop down menu
7.Once you have this updated connect your TOMTOM
8.Perform a full backup again with the TOMTOM Home software
9.Search using TOMTOM Home for any GO700 application software updates and install these (NOTE - ONLY INSTALL THE APPLICATION UPDATES)
10.Reboot your GO700 to make sure that it works with any application updates
11.Re-connect your TOMTOM and this time perform a search for map updates to purchase and follow the instructions.
12.It is very likely that TOMTOM Home will say that there is not enough space on the drive to install the new map, it will follow an automatic process to remove your old map and then install the new one that you have purchased on lne from TOMTOM.
13. If Home has installed your new map correctly, when you log off and disconnect your GO700 it should then initialise - the long time bar rebuidling the maps and then start up normally. It can be necessary to reset your GO700 using the rest button under the base.

GOOD LUCK, This is currently a very messy process but one which seems to work for recovering the GO700 in the event of a failure, TOMTOM have been hopeless for me in getting any maps installed on a GO700, so this is my way of getting round their lousy support service.

Tomtom one won't connect to computer


I tried to download the update and now my is stuck. During installation it was supposed to download 7 components but it quit and gave an errorand could not continue the download. Now whenI turn it on it keeps looping to the tomtom main screen and telling me some legalities, and states it cannot find a gps signal.

I wish I could have the version that camewith it. There should be a op for me to restore it to factory default.

I don't advise updating the software at the website, it worked great at first.

Updates problem


Well if it won't provide any updates if a: your device is up to date or b: it has already downloaded all the relevant updates recently. To solve the second issue, you can simply rename the folder 'TomTom' under my documents to 'TomTomOLD', rerun HOME to force it to check for and redownload any recent updates.

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!
