If you have an SD card in try removing that before you power up.

You may also want to try the hard reset.
Paper clip in the tiny hole by the card slot.
Push it in firmly whilst the unit is powered up (not too hard) for about 3 seconds then release

You may have to power down and then up again and even hold down the power button a little longer the first time you do this

How do I update maps on tom tom one from computer to GPS ?


Usually, you connect your TomTom to your computer, and use the TomTom software (e.g. HOME) to update (e.g. buy, download and install) your map(s).
If your question is about how to copy a (new / another) map on your computer to your TomTom device (i.e. without using the TomTom HOME software), you can simply copy the "map" folder (of the map on your computer) to your TomTom Device (that you've connected to your computer).
You may have other questions like, is there enough memory on your TomTom device for the map ?; is the (new/other) map version compatible for the TomTom (model/version) device that you have ?; is the map "activated" to run on your TomTom device? etc.

Screen lights up on tomtom1535 but the screen does not show information options


You could try to perform a "soft reset" by disconnecting your device from a charger or USB-cable. Then you keep pressing the power button until you hear the TomTom startup sound. Then release the power button and let the device startup. If you're problem still is not solved, you could try to update the firmware of the GPS by installing MyTomTom on your computer. You need to download and install the program, make an account, and if you connect the GPS with a USB cable to your computer, you can update the device software. Never disconnect your GPS while the software is writing data to your GPS. If your GPS came with lifetime map updates the software will also update the mapa data which can take up to three hours. If these tips don't work, I suggest calling the TomTom support line, or send in the GPS for repair.

My tomtom via 1500 wont let me update my maps,it says theres a problem with my account


Make sure you have the latest version of TomTom HOME ? ... or re-install it. Then try to connect (the GPS) again and see if you still have the same problem.
Worst case, try contacting TomTom Support online via email or by phone for help.

Free maps downlolad


If/when you've just purchased a (brand) new TomTom GPS, you can register it (at the TomTom.com website) and download the latest map (for your device) .... free ... as part of the latest map guarantee.
Whenever you connect your GPS to the TomTom website (via TomTom HOME), you'll get (free) updates to your current map version - ... but they are NOT new versions of the maps.
To get new versions of your (current) map, you'll need to purchase the update (e.g. online, on the TomTom website). Upon paying for it, you will get the activation codes, etc. for you to download, validate and install the maps.

If your GPS has lifetime maps, (after you have registered), you'll be able to connect (via TomTom HOME) to get the latest map release, without requiring any code/password.

Go 730 not sending a fm signal


Hi,

If you have made a recent update this may be the reason you may have lost your FM transmission!!

Tom Tom disabled silent FM transmission on these units to comply with the law in certain countries which prohibit these FM transmissions. Later updates configured the units to output lower strength FM transmissions.

There is a possible workaround for this - see this link for a discussion on the issue.
http://www.tomtomforums.com/tomtom-go-630-720-720t-730-730t-740/19436-go-730-lost-fm-transmission-after-map-update.html

Hope this helps. Thanks for using FixYa

Can you tell me how to increase the number of Favourites stored on my GO 740 Live TomTom. Currently holds 48 favourites, is it possible to save extra favourites to an external microSD memory card. Please...


You cant increase the 48 fav limit, but there is another way to handle the problem.

1: Download and install http://www.poiedit.com
2: Find the file Mapsettings.cfg on device
3: Open this file in Poiedit
4: Delete unwanted positions
5: Save as _fav.ov2
6: Place _fav.ov2 in map folder.

Then, navigate to poi, choose _fav and choose location from there..

When doing a map update, just copy over _fav.ov2 to new map folder...
