Question about Tomtom ONE GPS Receiver

Tom Tom One


I really hope you can help!

I have a Tom Tom One and was looking for new maps and traffic/speed camera warnings to download. I found those okay and added them to my shopping cart (I have a MacBook Pro and use firefox if that helps).

I then clicked on 'My Device' and the screen went white so I plugged in the charger hoping that would resolve matters. In the morning the screen had got black as though turned off and the green light was showing on the top of the device.

Unfortunately I cannot get it to turn back on, I have tried re-setting and then re-setting and pressing the on button but to no joy.

Re: Tom Tom One

I have the same problem and my TomTom is "brand new". This unit is obviously dysfunctional and the company should take these back and submit a full refund. I tried notifying the TomTom Company to no avail. I will start mass emails to warn people about this company

I just purchased a Tom Tom XL 335 SE, but when you turn the volume up above 85% there is no sound. I exchanged the gps for a new one and the new one does the same thing. Any ideas for how I can get it to...

This was is a known bug to TomTom. The suggested solution is to update to the newest software version. The Download Page Here is where you can get the newest version.
(1) Ensure that you have the latest version of TomTom HOME installed
(2) Backup your navigation device by clicking Backup and restore in HOME
(3) Make sure you have enough space on your memory card or internal memory.
(4) Transfer your favourites to your new map

Downloading and installing your map
(5) Select your navigation device:

Before you disconnect
(6) If you have a speed camera subscription, install your TomTom speed cameras.

Select your new map

(7) If you have more than one map installed on your device, select the new map. On your navigation device, tap Manage maps in the Preferences menu and then tap Switch map.

Can not enable speed cameras on tom tom one to work after download from tom tom webb site

It depends on where the speed cameras are saved on the mem card.
They should be in the same folder (the folder the cameras are in should be extraced too) to the map folder itself.

No maps found on my tomtom xl iq routes

You should first update your version of tom-tom home. (download and save DON'T run it from the web as this has some minor glitches on occasion)

If you are looking to buy new maps then TTH will help you with that.

You didn't say if it was TTH that was not finding maps or your GPS itself when you power it up. This is important information that is needed to help you further.

If you have an SD card then remove that before you power up to see if your tom-tom works OK or not.

After a certain period of time updates can only be bought and not just downloaded

Problems copying maps onto XL One

Are you using USB 1.0 or 2.0 as this makes a vast difference in speed.
Also the map size and type can also make a difference in the install times.

Tom tom 520 insalled safety cameras not working

You should first go to preferences and make sure that "speed cameras" are activated in "show points of inetrest on map" . Once they are activated , go to "Manage Points Of Interest" agian , this is found in preferences. Once in there , select "Warn When Near POI". You should now be able to "see' and "hear" the warnings. If it still doesnt work then it's possible you have some corrupted files in the camera warning data , so try a fresh download. Please be sure you have a backup of all your data before you mess about . if you don't already ahve a backup on your PC , recommend you do it now.

No maps found on tom tom one new edition

this problem just happened to me. i'd just bought my new tomtom one and tested it on the journey home. all was well and i was really impressed. that was until I got it home and went to update it to get the latest maps for my area. I installed all the software as instructed by the on screen prompts and downloaded the latest updates. i then went to turn the device on, and was greeted by a message stating ''no maps found!''

after almost two hours of complete frustration, i then tried probably the easiest solution anyone could think of:

First of all, connect the device to your computer and close down tom tom home. (making sure it isn't even open in the system tray).

Now, open my computer and find the device. it will be labelled as a storage device (mine was drive G). Open it up and find where the maps are saved to. Something like, UK and Ireland, or something similar relating the place you live. Once located, delete them manually.

Now, reopen tomtom home and go to tools. Click ''use latest map guarantee''. It will then download the maps again and install them onto the device.

Next disconnect using the option 'disconnect device'' from the device menu.

Finally turn on your tom tom if it doesn't automatically, and you should be back in business. This worked for me, after trying numerous way more complicated solutions I found in various forums.

Hope it works for you too!
