Re: activation code missing from secondhand tomtom, think...

I have managed to load a downloaded map onto two separate Tomtom one XL devices. I did it through tom tom home. I purchased , downloaded and installed the map on my first device. Then connected my second device to my computer. In TOM TOM Home I then changed my device using the Device menu / Change device. it then allowed me to load the map onto a second TOM TOM device.

To obtain an activation code, the first thing you need to do is to find the product code of your TomTom product. This productcode can be found on one of these places:
  • on the 'productcode card' in your TomTom box;
  • in your CD jewel case, behind your CD;
  • in your CD box, behind CD 2;
  • on your My Account page (for Map downloads);
  • This product code consists of 3 groups of 5 characters and digits.

Activation code

You will have to go to tom tom web site, explain it to them or get the phone number from the web site, thinking that they might want some money unless you are the original owner and this is not an update.

I do not have an product code can u help me?

Hi, If you bought the unit NEW then it should already be activated AND you should have a product code too. If it's missing it's code then contact the retailer and get an exchange unit or get him to find the product code as it should have been in the box. If you purchased it second hand then I would have thought the previous owner would have / know the product code and in any-case it should already be fully functional. Sorry I can't be more positive for you but these are the facts. good luck

I have a tomtom 710 without a activaion card it is just the tomtom by itself how do i activate it n where do i get the code from

Ok, lets start with explaining the different code types:

Product code
The TomTom product code consists of 15 characters. It is a unique code to prove that you have an official TomTom product and hence you need it for product activation.

Device code
The device code consists of 10 characters. It is different for every device, so make sure you use the device code for your own device, on which you want to use the software.
When you activate manually the device code is shown on your device during activation.

Activation code
The activation code consists of 15 characters. It is generated from the product code and the device code. This activation code is required to run the software on your device. It only enables the software to run on that particular device.
Automatic activation
In most cases the software is activated automatically using an existing internet connection.
Manual activation
In some cases you may have to manually activate your software. In this case the product code and the device code generate a unique activation code. Enter this code on your device.
Go to to obtain an activation code for manual activation.

What to do if the activation fails
Make sure you have the latest version of the TomTom application installed on your TomTom device.
If you can’t activate a map on your TomTom GO / ONE / RIDER,
download Clear_Flash, follow instructions here

I would need more information before I can give you the best advice. I gather from your message that the tomtom doesnt work ? So , can you tell me what it does do at the moment ? ie . does it switch on ? do you get any sounds when you start it up ? is there anything on the screen at all ?
