SOURCE: TomTom Home does not recognise device

Have you created a TomTom account? For each device you own it needs its own e mail address which it links to and you need to be logged in when you plug in your Tomtom.

uninstall tomtom home from your computer & restart, then reinstall it from scratch.

This should fix it.

SOURCE: Upload latest western europe map v7.20 to TOMTOM 700 not possible

I have managed to solve the problem of loading a new map on my Go700 using a Mac. I discovered that Tomtom is incompatible with the Leopad operaying system, despite the protestations of the idiots at Tomtom ,so I reverted to an older Mac using Tiger.
Taking the instructions given to crinold, I tried to erase the disc on the 700 using home 1.5 - and it didn't work. So I went to disc utilities, highlighted and erased the Tomtom disc, and opened home 2,5. After being refused entry several times, like being told to load an already loaded device, I persevered, and managed, slowly, to add the map I had bought for 78 euros. T]One point oif interes is that when I bought the map, they site stated it would cost 63 pounds sterling, but switched it to euros when the invoice arrived. at a rate very favourable to Tomtom - funny, that.
This is sharp practice,probably illegal in many countries,, but, to be honest, dealing with the mysterious Tomtom company is so frustrating, that I don't have the time or inclination to fight them for the money they cheated from me.
How they survive with such an awful product and extremely bad after sales service is hard to understand - perhaps they won't ... we live in hope.

Tom tom one won't down load home automatically


First BACKUP your SD card.
Go here and download latest version of TomTom HOME >> For the PC or for the MAC , You can download tomtom HOME here > http://uk.support.tomtom.com/cgi-bin/tomtom_uk.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=7408&p_created=1184659653&p_sid=PmvpQQmj&prod_lvl1=&prod_lvl2=&cat_lvl1=&p_accessibility=0&p_redirect=&p_lva=&p_sp=cF9zcmNoPTEmcF9zb3J0X2J5PSZwX2dyaWRzb3J0PSZwX3Jvd19jbnQ9MjE1LDIxNSZwX3Byb2RzPSZwX2NhdHM9JnBfcHY9JnBfY3Y9JnBfcGFnZT0xJnBfc2VhcmNoX3RleHQ9ZG93bmxvYWQgaG9tZQ**&p_li=&p_topview=1

I would recommend you only do a map upgrade if you definatly need to as looking at other posts on this forum lots of people have problems after trying to update maps.
Updating maps is NOT FREE , you have to pay for updates and after downloading updates you need to reactivate the map with your product code . Only do an update after backing up your existing maps other sie you might have trouble reverting back if the download goes wrong.

GOOD LUCK

Tom Tom 720 won't back up and falters during operations


You have to make a manual back up of the device. Make a new folder on your desk top. Connect your device to your PC and turn it on. Go to my computer and look for tom tom storage device and open it. You will see all the folders that is in your tom tom. Copy and paste just the yellow ones into the new folder. When you have done this you can know reformat your device. Do this by right clicking on the tom tom logo (in my computer). Click fat 32 (full format). This will wipe everything off. Disconnect your device, you will see a red cross on the screen. reset the device with a paper clip (hold in for 30 sec) You will still see the red cross. connect back up to PC and install the latest application of to tom home on to the device. From here you can go to add maps ect, and put your maps back on the device. Tom tom home will give you all the updates your device will be missing. You will only need the maps so don't worry if you can not copy all folders (for whatever reason) you can get everything you need as well as free updates for free via tom tom home. Its only the maps you have to pay for.
