Question about GPS Devices
I just got a TomTom One XL for Christmas. It worked out of the box, but after I performed the latest updates, it does not work. The updates went through without a problem (used TomTom Home). Now when I turn it on, it just sits at the TomTom splash screen. Of course I did not do a backup before performing these updates. On TomTom's website, I looked for some sort of system restore download, but I could not find anything.
Any suggestions out there?
Thanks in advance.
You need to run your TomTom Home software, and this TomTom tutorial will walk you through the process of reinstalling your maps to use your device.

I have managed to solve the problem of loading a new map on my Go700 using a Mac. I discovered that Tomtom is incompatible with the Leopad operaying system, despite the protestations of the idiots at Tomtom ,so I reverted to an older Mac using Tiger.
Taking the instructions given to crinold, I tried to erase the disc on the 700 using home 1.5 - and it didn't work. So I went to disc utilities, highlighted and erased the Tomtom disc, and opened home 2,5. After being refused entry several times, like being told to load an already loaded device, I persevered, and managed, slowly, to add the map I had bought for 78 euros. T]One point oif interes is that when I bought the map, they site stated it would cost 63 pounds sterling, but switched it to euros when the invoice arrived. at a rate very favourable to Tomtom - funny, that.
This is sharp practice,probably illegal in many countries,, but, to be honest, dealing with the mysterious Tomtom company is so frustrating, that I don't have the time or inclination to fight them for the money they cheated from me.
How they survive with such an awful product and extremely bad after sales service is hard to understand - perhaps they won't ... we live in hope.
