    The send button will not populate your device options untill you install the driver for your GPS receiver and restart your computer. Please check the user manual on how to install the driver for your GPS receiver in your computer

Time Required: 20 minutes for initial setup. Just a few seconds to send an address.
What You Need:

  • TomTom in-car GPS receiver ( "send" feature does not work with other brands).
  • USB connection between GPS and your personal computer.
  • Internet connection.
  • Latest version of TomTom "Home" software (included free with TomTom GPS).
Here's How:
  1. You will need a TomTom brand in-car GPS receiver to make use of this feature. Google Maps does not currently support other brands.
  2. Install the TomTom Home software from a disk that came with your GO or ONE device. Update your Home software to the latest version ( or later) for free by visiting the TomTom PLUS services page. Apple-compatible Home software is available for download, as well.
  3. Connect your GPS receiver to your personal computer with its included USB cable or docking station. Turn on the GPS, and touch "yes" when it asks to connect to the computer.
  4. You are ready to search for and upload a destination into your GPS. Open your Web browser and go to Google Maps .
  5. Type a destination into the "Search Maps" box in Google Maps. Google Maps has powerful search features, a good reason for using it in concert with your GPS.
  6. When you have identified the destination you sought, click on the "send" link (with the envelope icon) in the upper right of the destination map window.
  7. A dialog box will apear with the options to send to "e-mail," "car," or "GPS". Choose GPS. This selection will automaically start your TomTom Home software with the selected destination information (and its exact coordinates) in place.
  8. The TomTom Home software has now captured your chosen destination, and you have the options of showing on a simulated GPS map, navigating to the destination, or saving the destination to your favorites file. I find saving to favorites to be the most useful of these three options.

thank you For using Fixya...
have a nice day

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.

How do i get to the map for puerto rico on new tom tom

Puerto Rico is included with the latest 'USA' or 'USA & CANADA' or 'USA & Mexico' TomTom maps.
Depending on what map came originally with your unit, you can download the required USA map either for free or for a fee via 'TomTom Home' while connected to the internet. Alternatively, you can get it from a retail shop or from Tomtom directly on a DVD. It is a new Map, it will need to be registred to your device: you cannot just simply copy the maps from somebody else ...
WARNING: unless your unit came with a SD memory slot or came with 1GB of internal memory, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO USE those rather large maps! For instance, Tomtom One V3 in Australia only come with 512K and NO SD memory slot!
Hope this information is useful: let me know how you go!

Up date maps

To update maps you should run Tom Tom home on your computer and then connect the GPS

It will then ask you if you want to connect to the computer and you would tell your GPS yes.

Tom Tom home will once it finds your GPS then proceed to do any minor updates.

If your map is out of date it will offer you the option of purchasing a newer version.

don't be tempted to look for free / pirate maps !
These can cause problems in starting up your GPS (believe me)

Tom Tom map prices are not too bad and compared to many GPS are quite easy to install using Tom Tom home.

If you don't have Tom Tom home the latest version can be found here.

Tom Tom 910 map free update

nope im afraid you will have to cough up for the new maps (map corrections etc will only show new one way directions, and new or adjusted POIs), might be a good idea to wait till brand new maps are available before you splash any cash, good luck

Looping after free map download

What free maps are you talking about? All updated maps I could find for mine cost money.

If these maps are provided by other users, is there a chance that they could be corrupted, making the Tomtom unable to read it?
