Flashing X on TomTom but cant get it off on spotlight on my mac!

I have a new TomTom, connected it to PC USB and attempted update via TomTomHome but went wrong and now have a flashing red X. Unfortunately being new to this did not hacve a backup copy. Is it possible to format memory as in earlier solution and then download everything from TomTom web site. My tomtom one 130 is flashing a red X on the screen and i tried to go onto spotlight through my system preferences on my mac but i cant get the tomtom thing on the desktop to show up in the privacy section of spotlight! can anyone out there help me?

Make a full backup onto your computer making sure all files are shown. Do not use tt home. Make sure you have a copy of your map in your backup. Do not format. Delete everything on your tt. Connect to tt home and tt home will reinstall the navcore for your device. Copy and paste your map from your backup onto your tt. You should be set to go. A reminder you will lose all your preferances and favorites when you do this.

I was updating my device and we had a power failure Now my device is flashing a red X and will not connect. can you help


unplug the unit and turn it off. Connect the unit to the usb again and turn it on. Once its on it should connect back to your PC. Open up tomtomhome and click manage my tomtom one. Find the tomtom one application and delete it. Then go back and check for an update, and there should be one there. Re install that update and your unit should be good to go.

My new TomTom One XL will not pick up a GPS signal.


Well, it MAY help to download the tomtomhome program from the tomtom website, then connect your unit to your computer and update, including the gpsfix application (that's for all the other posters who didn't mention having updated). But for Drakeca05, updating MAY have been what messed you up in the first place. I updated two days ago with tomtomhome--my tomtom one was working fine, but was a little slow to initially acquire satellites. Now since the update it's even slower, sometimes won't acquire them at all, and randomly drops them. Tomtom tech assistance is useless--they just refer you to the standard "acquiring satellites" faq that you can easily find yourself on their site & nothing there is the least bit helpful for this.

Flashing x


eave on charge for two hours, then with the SD card out (if it has one) hold down the reset button at the back of unit for ten seconds and then the 'on' switch for ten seconds.
STEP 1
Connect your TomTom to your
computer via USB and open up your Windows Explorer and go to the drive. (It will be listed as TOMTOM (E) or some other drive letter).
Copy the Yellow Folders one by one to your PC. Ideally, save all the folders under a new folder that you name.
You may find that the folder ttntools and gns may not be copied. This is o.k. if they aren't.
STEP 2
Format your Tomtom via MY Computer.
STEP 3
Copy the Yellow Folders from the
backup you made in STEP 1 back to the TomTom.
STEP 4
Open TomTom Home
Click on Upate Now.
Install the latest update onto your TomTom.
Once installed, switch your TomTom off, then disconnect if from the PC.
Thats it. From now on, make a full backup using TomTom Home prior to any updates.
Also note, that copying all the files will take some time.
