Hi Albert. Theres lots of data on the card besides the map that your tomtom needs in order for it to work. Theres really no solution can be offered as unfortunatly something has happened to the data on your card and something is either missing or corrupted. Exactly what would need to be investigated and its not really within the scope of doing so on this forum. Without any judgement to you or anyone else can I warn all other tomtom users ..... BACK UP YOUR SD CARD TO YOUR COMPUTER before you attempt any "update" to your tomtom. If you have made a backup Albert then I suggest you reload the backup onto your card and everything should work again. Fingers crossed. You might need to do a hard reset by pressing the reset button underneath your tomtom with a paper clip through the reset hole. Good luck.

    When I turn on my TomTom it says no maps avaible. When I go to load the canada usa maps I just bought it says not enough memory. How can I reset my Tom Tom back to the maps it had.


    Since you have just bought it, you are eligible for a new map (within 30 days of purchase). Please update the map as early as possible. Please follow the steps mentioned below:
    Tom do not seem to overwrite the existing map file. So before trying to install the map, you need to delete the folder that contains the map. (It is important to read the next part before you delete the map folder). Once you have connected your TomTom to thecomputer, close the TomTom home window. Double click on my computer. You will see the TomTom hard drive as a drive (like you see the CD drive). Double click on that . Once the folders of the TomTom hard drive opens, look for a folder named USA_Canada_and_Mexico_P. (Please note: this name is for American continent. For others, this name will be different). Right click on it. click properties. Check whether the size of this folder is approximately around 1.3 GB to 1.5 GB. This is just to make sure we have the correct folder. After confirming this is the map folder, copy this folder to your computer for back up purpose. Once you have it safely in your computer, delete this folder from the TomTom hardrive. Go back to TomTom home software. Use the map guarantee to update/Upgrade the new map. You will see this time around the installation completes without a problem.

    Tomtom go 300


    The tomtom GO 300 does not need an installation disk. It has firmware ( thats a sort of pre-installed software ) that is put on it at the tomtom factory. If the firmware has become corrupted it can be reinstalled or "updated" by logging on here > http://www.tomtom.com/plus/service.php?ID=17 then click the DOWNLOAD TOMTOM HOME Link. Then connect your tomtom to your computer with a USB lead. Run the TomTom-Home software you downloaded and select "UPDATE MY PRODUCT" . After that , if you don't already have one you will need a valid SD card for your tomtom containing the maps for your country and some other activation codes which you get when you purchase maps from tomtom.
