OK... I found an amature solution;
- Do a soft reset of the system, with the paperclip (see tomtom site)
- Put the device on the docking station and connect it to power as well as to your computer. While it's turned off
- Turn on the TOMTOM while connected to the computer
- Start the TOMTOM Home software
- And it made connection again
- Disconnect the device via the software
- Take the device out of the docking station
- Turn it off and on once
This worked for me, my next step would have been the support desk. Grtz Derk

The reset button is on the bottom of your device. On my older model XL it is just above the sd card slot. If you have the newer model XL 330 then you have to hold down the on/off switch for 20 seconds to do a reboot. If you have not used it in a while let it charge for 30 monutes before doing a reset.
Hope this helps

when your registered it with tom tom they take note of your maps
check your online tom tom account and it should let you re-download your maps.
I you backed it up to your computer you can also restore the maps from there with the tomtom home software
