Question about Tomtom ONE XL GPS

1 Answer

Device won't communicate with computer when SD card is installed (works fine without the SD card but I don't have enough memory to download my new maps, so I'm running through the steps to perform a backup, insert my SD card, and then do the restore - unable to restore using my SD card). Help.

The first step would be to format the SD card by putting it into a card reader on your computer, but format it as FAT32 instead of NTFS. If you know how to do this, please do, otherwise skip this step and try the following. If you have formatted it as FAT32, you must still try the following please.

Do you have the TomTom Home software installed? You must install it and then load the map into TT Home, and then connect your device to the computer and load the maps to the device from Home.

Now if TT Home doesn't recognize the SD card, it's probably because its disabled by default. To make it work, please do the following in credit to medstudent24:

  1. Format the SD card (FAT32) and do not stick the SD in the slot yet
  2. Run Backup (connect TomTom device to computer)
  3. Disconnect TomTom from computer and turn it off
  4. Slide the SD into the slot and connect TomTom back to computer (choose "yes")
  5. In the TomTom Home menu, Choosen Backup & Restore >>> and choosen Restore
TomTom Home will add all applications to the SD card. So the internal memory still have the applications and the SD card also had the same applications.

Everytime you slide the card in, TomTom will automatic detect and use it as its primary storage, if it not detect, you can go to the device menu and pick the device to connect to.

Whenver you take the SD card out, then TomTom will use its internal memory.

Hope I have been helpful.

Best regards

Communication error


If your SD memory card contains more than 1,000 images, the camera will display "Communication Error". Use a card reader (if available) to import your images into the computer, or see about having some CD's made at a photofinishing business.
