I dont have my product code for my go 300. I've just tried to update my maps for the first time in 2 years, now it wants the product code to activate the updated maps. My wife threw the box and contents in the bin a long time ago. I told tom tom about my problem but they've told me I need to purchase a new map to get a new product code. Is there anything I can do before I buy a new map?

Garmin offers two kinds of updates on its website: software updates are free. Map updates are not. You'll need a USB cable to connect the Garmin to your computer. Then go to http://www.garmin.com On
the web site, first register your product. Then look for "Support" and
follow their instructions for updating your software. After you've
done that, look for "Maps" on the menu at the top of the screen. You can
either purchase updates one at a time, or buy a lifetime (of your
device) subscription. By the way, maps are huge files, so plan on it
taking several hours to update your maps even with a fast internet connection
You can activate products by connecting the unit to a USB port of a computer. If The Tomtom Home application is installed on computer it will launch and update the unit. On page 1 of main Home menus there is an icon for activation.
To make things easy for you I am enclosing a screen capture from the HOME 2.7 application.
Even when you do that it doesn't really update it just updates the software so that it looks like you can update the maps but when you touch to update it just tells you, you have to get an updated map for about $100.00 US. This is bull because you pay upward of 400.00 for this GPS. Then you have to pay pay and pay out of pocket over and over again. So there should be a way to update the map without coming out of pocket every year. The really funny thing is that I got mine about 1.5 years ago and the maps were about 3 years old if not more. Now they even want money to update POI now. Which they probably charge the owner of a business to have his address and number available for the consumer that has this line of GPS available? Tom Tom should probably take a look at other brands like Garmin for instance and see why they are doing so much better in sales because there maps are better. But like any computer its always the software that make it or breaks it in this market.....
Pioneer SUCKS!! After buying a GPS and being told upfront by Pioneer that a upgrade will be aval. in 90 days for a modest cost, it takes them almost 9 months to come up with it. Then they have the nerve to ask $150 for the upgrade after people have paid $300 to $500 for their GPS. I will never buy a Pioneer product again. I switched to a TOM TOM and it works better, no upgrade problems and over all it cost me less than that POS Pioneer.
There is no solution, and the manufacturer is not amenable to any news of this.
It used to be possible to remove the mapsettings.cfg file from the TomTom unit's maps before downloading and installing a new map, then to replace the file; however, TomTom changed the coding on the latest maps so that the software no longer recognises the old cfg file. There is a complex workaround where you change your favorites, one by one, into Points of Interest - but it seems pointless having a Favorites item when you have to do this.
I got news for you poor Delphi Nav200 or 300 suckers , I mean customers. There is in fact a map update right now, but guess what. The assholes want $99.00 for it. Go buy a Tom Tom. All updates are free. All the time thru their web site.
If you want to BUY the update from the Delphi Crooks it's up t6o you. I will be a good duby and give you the website. Ready, here it is are you sure???? OK !!!!! It's your money.
