Here is a possible solution from TomTom tech support:

To solve this, use TomTom HOME to install the application. Follow the steps below:

  1. Install TomTom HOME on your computer, if it isn't already installed. You can download the latest version of TomTom HOME here:

  2. Connect your device to your computer and switch it on.

  3. TomTom HOME opens automatically and checks for updates. If it does not automatically check, do one of the following:
    • In HOME 1.x select Device > Update now from the menu bar.
    • In HOME 2.x, click Update in the HOME menu.

  4. When you are shown a list of available updates that you can download, make sure that you select the check box for the TomTom application.
TomTom HOME downloads and installs the latest version of the TomTom application for your device.

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!

I am looking to buy a GPS that have both Canada and USA maps on it. Also do not want to spend lots of money. Need to have 5 inch screen.

Most of the devices on the market now have both maps on it and some also have Mexico. The cost probably won't exceed $150-200. Garmin, Tom-Tom, Magellan and others should fill your needs.

I cannot download the USA and Canada on my Tomtom any more

Connect the device to a pc via a usb cable. It will appear as an additional external drive. Navigate the drive and you will fin a folder called Guam.

Copy it to the PC.
There will be another one called USA_and_Canada. check if it has any contents.

The Tom Tom website can tell you how to install the map again if it is not there

Try clicking on the main part of the screen during navigation. Then click on the "wrench" icon (Change preferences). Then click the blue arrow (2x) until you get to the 3rd page (Preferences 3 of 5). Click on Manage maps. Then click on Switch map. Then select USA & Canada.

Turn the tomtom on, and then press the reset button on the bottom of the unit with a paperclip. After the reset turn off the unit and then turn it back on. Make sure you have not dislodged the sd card from the unit.
