Get the latest version of TOMTOM HOME
Install it and run the program.

Now with your GPS tunred off connect it to your computer via a short USB lead.

Now switch on the GPS and clikc yes when t asks if you want to connect to a computer.

TTH will now start up and from there you can update the tomtom itself.

    If everything went to plan you should be updated and may then want to try again with your phone.



    Done forget that not all blue-tooth phones work with all blue-tooth devices.

    Even some blackberries don't have full blue-tooth

How do i charge my tom tom


How do I charge my device? - TomTom

us.support.tomtom.com/.../how-do-i-charge-my-device%3F

TomTomApr 15, 2013 - If you only charge your TomTom while it is in use, it may not charge to capacity. To fully charge your TomTom, it is best to charge the device indoors. Most newer TomTom products can be charged directly through USB, simply by connecting the USB cable or dock to your computer.

Cannot connect phone


1-Your tom tom does not have the device driver needed to connect to your phone?
2- Turn off the bluetooth device the tom tom is a bluetooth device and the two of them are probably arguing the tom tom and your actual bluetooth.
3- You have to put the tom tom in discover mode and let the PHONE find the tom tom then the tom tom should find the phone, once this happens you enter the code and tell the phone that this is a trusted device. The same thing that was done with your actual bluetooth device. Hope this helps

GETTING ON INTERNET


Tom,
Sorry to hear about your wife. I assume that her computer was connected to the internet previously by your wife. You will need to know her password for the internet connection and how the internet was connected to the computer (phone line, cable, or wireless).

If it phone or cable line connect computer to cable, turn on computer, pick internet icon, and enter password when asked.

Most likely this will not work. Go to where she bought the computer or to any computer repair store for more assistance.

Tom tom home does not see my tom tom go 520


Hi canal_boat_m

Try this solution:

STEP 1 Un-install Tom Tom Home from your PC

STEP 2 Click on the link below:

http://tomtom.com/lib/img/cs/S4S/files/RemoveRegEntries_TTGOv1.exe
This will download a little removal program for the Tom Tom Home program.
A Black window will appear briefly then close.
• Make sure that you have got Administrator rights on the PC. Otherwise you may not be allowed to connect new hardware (especially the case when using office computers)
• Reboot your PC

STEP 3 Visit Tom Tom website and download the current new version of Tom Tom Home and install it to your PC
STEP 4 Connect the TomTom

• Make sure the device is fully charged before connecting it to the computer. Ideally a mininum of 4 hours charge.
• Reset the device using a paper clip (see http://www.tomtom.com/6965). When resetting, keep the reset button pushed in for at least 20 seconds, but DO NOT turn the device back on just yet.
• Ensure that your TomTom has power connected to it. There should be a green light on the TomTom unit. If your device came with a Home Charger, please make sure that is plugged in to the TomTom also.
Your Tom Tom should ask you to 'Connect to Computer' if it does tap YES.

SOLUTION:
Your unit should now be recognized by your PC.

IF IT DOESN'T then follow the instructions below:

1. Connect your unit to your PC;
2. Copy two folders to your PC (namely 'Raster' and the one which holds all your maps - probably called 'United Kingdom and Eire';
3. Using Windows Utility, right click on the Tom Tom drive unit and select Fomat;
4. Switch off the unit and soft-reset it with a paper clip (but hold it in for at least 20 mins) and then re-connect it and power it up;
5. Tom Tom Home should now detect the unit and your unit should ask you to 'Connect to Computer' so tap YES;
6. Tom Tom Home will now say your device needs updating - and if you apply all the changes it will restore it to Factory Finished!
7. Then all's needed is to replace the two folders you backed up and any other items like mp3's and sounds, pics, etc.
