Go to the TomTom website to determine whether an update is available. If so, you will need an adapter cable with micro USB on GPS end and USB A connector on the other to plug into your computer. Expect the update to take quite some time.

Good Morning I have a Tom Tom one XL and I have just purchased Mitsubishi ASX and would like a Dashboard mount for my Tom Tom


Try amazon for selection and price. Use the search feature and type in GPS dash mount. PS check with local laws to be sure it is not ******* to mount it there.

Tom Tom only has Guam map since update


That is really strange!
I can only suggest that you verify what MAPs are physically on your TomTom device by connecting it to a PC/LAPTOP and use Windows Explorer to look at your GPS drive folders: should see a folder for each 'country' (like GUAM).
The normal way to check which maps are registred and loaded on your device is to use TomTom Home -> Update maps function: it will show you the status or whereabout of any Maps that you have loaded or backup and which one can be purchased.
Hope it helps: let me know how you go.
ps.i f you wisely backup your device on a regular basis (via TomTom Home or direct copy to your PC/LAPTOP), you could always RESTORE FROM BACKUP and start again.

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.

Hope this helps. Thanks for using FixYa

Update map from pc ? (free?)


Use Tom Tom Home.

You'll only get free updates for a certain period after purchase. Beyond that time, you'll need to buy them.

Download Tom Tom Home here:

After having my tom tom for 10 months I finally downloaded the Tom Tom Home and updated my Tom Tom. However, after doing so, I disconnected my Tom Tom and it no longer works. I only have the Tom Tom front...


Probaly you're still within the gaurantee periode, go back to the store and don't tell them that it is you're own fault that you've bricked your tom tom, they only need to know that it stopped to work without anny reason, that this happend with normal use, they should replace it for you or send it back to tom tom to fix it for free.

Next thime don't unplug you're tom tom when it is updating, be patient,
the software tells you when it is finished updating.

Succes.

Tried to update my Tom Tom One by connecting to my


Remove the SD card

The card needs to be formatted properly first that's all,

formatting is better done in a card reader.

Right click on it and select format select FAT32 as the files system

Update your device without the SD card.

Make sure your GPS runs OK without the SD card

Now re-connect the tomtom but don't let tomtom home run. exit TTH if need be.

You now ned to select your tom tom which will also show as a drive.

In windows explorer select tools then folder options.

Click view and tick the box for "show hidden files and folders"
It may warn you but you can ignore it.

then just copy ALL the files from the tom tom to your sd card

DO NOT USE CUT AND PASTE !

Once all the files are on switch off the tom tom and insert the sd card and re-boot
It should now work again

Cant download my tom tom


Have you got the disc which comes with it? Download tom tom home from the tomtom website otherwise. This will install tomtom home onto your computer and you should then have the correct links/buttins on this program to download. Before updating your tomtom if it has a removeable SD card-do make a copy of it onto your pc as a backup. My brother used updates which messed up his software on the tomtom a while ago but my backup(same model tomtom) saved him!
