It may be possible that the new card you purchased (assuming it is for a new map) is for a map (version) that is compatible for your TomTom GPS. (It may be more helpful if you indicate the card/map and your TomTom GPS model) If you had purchased the card from TomTom ... contact TomTom for help.

Often, it is easier to buy a new map directly from the tomtom.com website . That way you'll get the "right" map for your TomTom model. After you pay for it, you download the map directly into your GPS (using the HOME application) and activate it. If you have any problem, you can contact TomTom right away and they'll help you to get it done right.

Guys and or ladies... I know that you have to create a folder named "GARMIN" in the sd card so the maps can be recognize. Maybe this solves your problem. Let me know if it works.

I had a similar error and I fixed it. That is, as far as I know...

Here's my theory: The SD card is acting like it has an error on it. This often happens when it is removed improperly.

HERE'S HOW TO FIX IT:

  1. Remove your SD card from your GPS
  2. Insert your SD card into an SD card reader or connect it to your PC
  3. Wait for windows to go through it's process of discovering your the "removable storage device" your just connected (see step 2)
  4. (This step may be different depending on what version of Windows you are using or depending on how you have your OS laid out). Look at the lower right hand corner of your desktop. There should me a small icon there with a green circle and a check mark. It looks like this...877f33f.jpg
  5. Click that with the right mouse button.
  6. It will say "Safely Remove Hardware" - Left click that message.
  7. A window will pop up allowing you to select your SD card and "Safely Remove" it (it will have a letter name like "drive F" for example).
  8. Wait for the windows to tell you it is ok to remove your hardware - then remove your SD card form the PC
  9. Make sure your GPS is turned off.
  10. Insert the SD card into your GPS.
  11. Turn on your GPS
  12. That's all! I hope I was able to help.

Down loading Europe on my TomTom 1/3


Yes you can I have europe and canada on mine.

just plug your tomtom into your computer and start tomtom home

On the computer screen for tomtom select ADD MAPS

Here you can select and buy the maps you need.

Once you have confirmed the purchase you will be given instructions on how to download etc

Some maps may take a little time to install to the tomtom itself.

you should also ensure there is enough space on your tomtom
If not you will have to get an SD memory card.

I use a 4gb one that still has lots of room to spare

Tom Tom 500 says memory card not installed


What I can suggest is download the drivers & software first .. Than buy another brand of memory card.. I had same issue with a Mp3 player that I had purchased.. It wouldnt recognise the card even though it was setup properly.. I returned it and baught a different brand.. Worked Like a Charm..

#2 If you for some reason cant get the software to install or work properly, I suggest you buy a new Tom Tom (( EXACT MODEL )) and than take the old Tom Tom put it in the new box and take it back with your receipt and tell them this doesnt work.. Ive done that b4 with a Speaker system and it wasnt an issue with the store...

Good Luck !

Frozen map screen


Try purchasing a new SD memory card (brand name) and installing the files there. Sometimes the manufacture sends cheap SD cards and the data is easily lost in damaged or poorly made SD cards. I have a EVESHAM 2007 and installed the files from the original CDto a new SD card and solved freezing and other problems resulting from poor data transmission from the cheap SD.

Also, try going online to the manufactureer's web site to see if they have downloads/ updates available there to replace the origianl install files that came with the unit. Always put on new brand new SD card.

Hope this helps

Navigon 7100 Fatal Application Error


I had the same problem with my unit.

Did you try to reload ALL the files back to the memory card?

This as a slow process,but it seems to go a little faster if you use a card reader.

Format card using FAT option,not FAT32.

Hope this helps

Looking for a part


Get a blank card, put it in your gps device, connecct to your computer, go to their website and download the maps you need. Mine stores everything inside itself. You might not even need the card. Just load the maps into the gps.

Putting maps on sd memory card


(Untried)
For C330 owners that want to have both Canada and US 2008 map update on their GPS this is what you have to do.

Must have:
1 - Street pilot C330

2 - 512mb SD card
3 - SD card reader of some form (some cameras will suffice)
4 - Garmin 2008 Map Update North America

What to DO:

1 - connect the GPS to the computer
2 - Insert the Map update disk
3 - Install the Lower 48 states, United States
(Reason - the C330 has around 1000mb of memory and the "US 48 states" map uses around 900mb" while Canada uses 400mb...which is why you will need that 512mb SD card later)

4 - Once the GPS is updated with the US map. Browse the Map update disk contents. This can be done with going to "My Computer" right click on your CD/DVD drive and click on "Explore"

5 - Open the folder called "img"

6 - Copy the file called "gmappromU.img" file is around 430mb. (This is the map file for Canada)

7 - Insert your SD card into your card reader and connect it to your computer. A window should pop up. If not you should see it on your "My Computer"

8 - Once you have navigated your way into the SD card directory. Create a folder on the SD card named "garmin" (no caps)

9 - Go into your newly created "garmin" folder right click and paste the "gmappromU.img" file. (This may take upto 20 to 30 mins)

10 - Once the process is complete, Rename the "gmappromU.img" file to --> "gmapsupp.img" (watch for spelling, no caps at all)

11 - Remove the SD card, Turn off your GPS, Insert SD card into GPS.

12 - Turn on GPS, let it load, and there you have it, the FULL North America Map.

When you are searching a state or province (depending where you are located) it will give you an option which map to use, Canada/Alaska or the lower 48 US states. Select your map and you are set to Go.

Tomtom One 3rd edition - no SD slot and not enough memory


You could probably just manually delete the Canada/USA maps from the device, and copy over the europe (or whichever ones you need) to the device. 
Just plug it in, and view the memory like a normal usb drive..delete the old, copy over the new.
Don't forget to use tomtom home to backup your gps device to your computer first (thus saving your canada maps for later..)
Afterwards, you would probably have to go into your preferences and choose the europe maps.
Good luck!

Either you have a bad micro SD card or you are loading more data than the card can hold.

You will need slightly less than 2GB of memory load load USA and Canada all together at the same time.

You can also try buying an external card reader and instead of loading to the garmin load the map data onto the micro SD card from the reader.
