Download the free from TomTom 510/710 clearflash tool and following the instruction run the tool. You may have to do this a couple of times.

Flashcard not loading


It may be likely that the TF (SD) card is not being read properly or has been damaged/corrupted.
Try to read that SD card on your computer (i.e. not using the GPS) ... and see if it works. And/or use the Properties - Tool - Check Disks tool to "recover/fix" the SD card (on your PC).

Tip

Overcoming with SD card "write error"


SD cards are flash memory devices which allow a user to store huge amount of data. Being reliable and durable, these cards have become the hot choice to store data and are used in various host devices like digital camera, PDAs, video game consoles, MP3 players etc. Despite so many advantages, these cards are also prone to errors. Most of these errors occur due to reasons like interruption in read/write process, virus attacks or file system corruption. While some SD card errors can be dealt by cleaning the contacts of the card and re-inserting it, others can be rectified by formatting the card. After formatting, the SD card data can be retrieved by using either a valid backup or SD card recovery software.

Consider a situation, you have taken your family to an exotic locale and while clicking pictures through your digital camera (which is using a SD card) you witness an error on its LCD screen:

“Write error”
The above error is not rare in case of SD cards. The moment the error erupts, the data stored on the SD card becomes inaccessible. Moreover, the SD card becomes useless as you can't even store new data on it.

Cause

The above error which rendered the SD card ineffectual can be accounted to corruption. The other reason can be relatively less memory space to accommodate new data.

Resolution
In order to rectify 'write error', you can try the following possible techniques:
  • Turn the camera off, re-insert the card and then turn it on again
  • If you are still not able to access the data, connect the camera to a computer
  • You can use a card reader to access the SD card data
  • In grim situations where nothing of the above works, format the SD card and restore the data using a backup

After formatting, the SD card becomes functional and can perform read/write operation. If a backup of the data is corrupted or invalid, you can rely on a SD card recovery software. A SD card recovery tool employs improved scanning algorithms to extract data in the event of corruption.

Stellar Phoenix Photo Recovery, a well-known SD card recovery tool, is designed to recover lost/formatted/deleted multimedia files from a variety of memory cards like SD, SDHC, XD, MMC, CF etc. The easy-to-use tool is available in two versions, one each for Windows and Mac operating system.

Tip

Save your TOMTOM


I can help some people who have problems with their TomTom but here is a tip for you to help yourself against future problems.

  • Backup your SD card to your PC.
  • Do this by removing the SD card from your TomTom. Insert it into an SD card reader conencted to your PC. Make a new folder on your PC called TomTom Backup. Then open that folder and copy all the files from your TomTom SD card into the TomTom Backup folder. Job done.
Data can be corrupted on SD cards and SD cards can easily be damaged. I you end up with a damaged card then at least you will have a backup of it on your PC. This can save you a lot of money as trying to get a TomTom going again without the software is very expensive.

good luck. homemender

Ok so i turned on my GPS(navigon 2110 max) and out of nothing this is the message I got "image file corrupted, update cancelled" i tried the fac reset but that didnt work, I pressed and hold the...


Do you get a different result if you turn on the unit with the SD card not installed? If so, then you may be able to solve the problem by installing an SD card with a known good program and map file(s). In that case, obtain an SD card reader for your computer if you do not have one. If your computer can read the SD card, make a backup image of it, then install a file set on it.

If the cannot be read, then you will need to reformat it and restore the original map files or try to install a new map image file to it.

In you are unable to install good application and map files on the SD card, you may have to get a new SD card from Navigon.

I have a Nextar x3-08 gps. It will not go beyond the opening screen. It just suddenly stopped working. Any idea what may be wrong with it? Thank you.


Once again, it's a software issue or a corrupted SD card. You can purchase a new card but the same old mapping on Nextar.com or Navteq.com. To ensure that your software stays working properly, backup the SD card onto your computer so if the SD card gets corrupted you can restore the software and files back onto your card or a new SD card that can be purchased for around 20 bucks.

My tomtomgo 710 SD card has been corrupted and I do not have a backup. I get no sense from local (Australian) service Cos. How can I get a new SD card with the application loaded?


Dicky smith stires sell TOMTOM and should be able to direct you to gettiong the maps reset on the card. The uniques ID is essential but if you still have proof of purchase you may get out of having to buy a new licence. Lost of peoplke have bought GPS off Ebay and then claimed faulty card and approached TOMTOM for replacement maps. They have wised up to the scammers now and want proof of purchase or else you pay again. But see what DSE says about the matter

Phone reboots when I click on the call log so i am unable to view the calllog. What do I do?


Sounds like your PhoneCallDB file may be corrupt. I do not know how to recover it, but you may be able to delete the corrupt file so you can use your phone again.

Backup your device before trying this.

Try downloading Filez from http://nosleep.net, then copy the PhoneCallDB file from the device to an SD card (as a backup). Now Delete the PhoneCallDB file from the device. If you go to the phone application now, the call log should be empty.

Why dose my tom tom stop on a test run half way through the journey


When on test or demo , the tomtom runs on a demo menue list loaded onto the sd card. if the data file on this list is corrupted the tomtom will only complete the demo journey up to the corrupted point in the list. I would suggest that you reload your backup onto your SD card . ( Hopefully you did make a backup to your PC ? ). Other than that , you could try contacting tomtom and ask them which file you need to replace on your SD card in order to replace the corrupted file. You could then either download it from tomtom website or copy it from someone elses tomtom SD card.

Restoring SD Card from ActiveSync Backup


I am fairly sure that you are out of luck. The Active Sync backup does not backup SD card data.
