Yes you can buy a new card with all the map data on it. You can also search the internet for a program to "unformat SD card" only if you didn't write any new information onto the formatted SD card

Re install new cards Canada/US

It may be possible that the new card you purchased (assuming it is for a new map) is for a map (version) that is compatible for your TomTom GPS. (It may be more helpful if you indicate the card/map and your TomTom GPS model) If you had purchased the card from TomTom ... contact TomTom for help.

Often, it is easier to buy a new map directly from the website . That way you'll get the "right" map for your TomTom model. After you pay for it, you download the map directly into your GPS (using the HOME application) and activate it. If you have any problem, you can contact TomTom right away and they'll help you to get it done right.

Dropped the tomtom one and the memory card fell out in two pieces. put it together and back in tomtom. it starts to load then stops and an image off the card coming out with a big cross on it is shown.

try plugging the card into pc/laptop and see if you can save all the data from it onto your hard drive. Then buy a new card and dowload all the files onto this

Loading TomTom one maps for northern France

First you need to have the relivent map on your SD card. Typicly this will be the Tomtom Map " Western Europe ". When you purchase maps from TomTom you also get an activation code and instructions telling you how to install the map onto your device and how to authorise it using the code that comes with it.
Before doing anything ... BACK-UP your existing data ( the whole SD card ) onto your computer . This will ensure that if any update is unsuccesful you can at least return things to the way they were before you tried to update.
There are several ways to obtain maps
  • buy a new TOMTOM SD card for your tomtom that containes the required maps. Make sure it comes with the authorisation card.
  • buy a CD from TomTom or a TomTom authorised dealer . This CD will contain the required map so you can download the required map to your own SD card. Make sure it comes with the authorisation code AND instructions.
  • buy the required map from TomTom online . You can download it to your PC , then copy it onto your SD card later. It will come with some instructions and authorisation code ...... You can also use "TomTom Home" software and this does most of the job of downloading maps ( that you buy from tomtom ) and puts them onto your sd card for you in a semi-automatic way . If you go down this route then its best to be sure you have the latest version of TomTom home software by going to the TomTom website first.
With ANY of the above methods------- BACK UP your existing SD card first . In fact ... make a BACK UP NOW , then if anything goes wrong at any time , you can at least revert back to your backup.

Good Luck

I have accidentally formatted my Tomtom One(4N00.005) SD card without backing up all data.I copied all maps and other stuff from another Tomtom One to my computer's hard disk and then transferred all data...

You cannot take maps from one TomTom and put them on another TomTom. The maps are coded to that particular TomTom. It would seem the only option left to you is to purchase another map from TomTom.

Tom tom sd card wiped clean

more than likely, I just purchased a new tomtom sd card on ebay with all the new maps on it, ver.7 got it for a UK seller no problems, did you back it up on your computer? hopfully you did, then you can just connect it to tomtom home and reinstall it.

Tomtom one displays no maps found

The problem with that approach is that you cannot transfer maps from another device onto yours without product key activation codes. This is to prevent piracy or abuse of maps on individual devices.

Did you find a good solution?

Memory Card

The DATA on your SD card has become corrupt or the SD card itself has become damaged / faulty. ..... Hopefully , some time back , you backed up your SD card to your computer ? . All you need do is format the card and then reload the files from your PC . If the tomtom still doesnt load up then you would need to purchase a NEW BLANK SD card and reload your backup onto it. If that doesnt solve your problem and if unfortunatly you didn't back up the original card then you will need to purchase a NEW TOMTOM SD card with activation code . Bad news and a learning process , always back up your tomtom card !

TT Home does not recognise connection

You definitely need software and maps on an SD card. The TOMTOM will not work without a card inserted. The card will contain MAPS , Map authorisation codes ( to show they are genuine TOMTOM maps bought and paid for ) , POI ( points of interest ), GPS fix data , voices ( for spoken navigation ) etc etc etc. ....................
PLEASE NOTE , TRYING A CARD FROM ANOTHER TOMTOM is very unlikely to work. Each card has an authorisation code that is generated via an algorithm inside each TOMTOM and is device specific.
However , trying a card from another tomtom might produce a diferrent result but still not work , at least this might prove that the tomtom is working OK before you rush out and buy a tomtom card.
