Restoring your Favorites and personal settingsIf you reset factory settings or update your map you can restore your favorites from a device Backup.Your Favorites are located inside your map folder, stored in the file MapSettings.cfg.

I have a tomtom720 that is now refusing to go past the start up screen. Pressing reset or holding the 'on' button does not do anything. How might I reboot or reload software?

Try to restore the firmware first. If that fails, there may be a motherboard issue. There is a third party tomtom Repair service that will replace the logic board and a tomtom repair guide if you want to replace it yourself, the screen is available on ebay.

Tom tom go 720 frezes

Your tomtom needs a new battery for starters as a bad battery will do this trust me or not. Now if its new and i mean straight out of the box return it as its going to have more issues in the long term. You also might try reloading the software on it but I am sure its the battery. Thanks please do leave postive feedback for my advice.

Tom Tom 920

Your Favorites are located in the Map directory in the TomTom.
For example if your using the North American map (North_America).
In a file named MapSettings.cfg.
When you update the map and some times the application this file is overwritten.
I recommend copying the file to the root directory of the TomTom or your computer if changes are made. That way you have a easy back-up of your favorites file.

Unfortunately to recover your old file you may damage other file in the process.

I hope this helps.

Lost favorites when trying to update

There is no solution, and the manufacturer is not amenable to any news of this.

It used to be possible to remove the mapsettings.cfg file from the TomTom unit's maps before downloading and installing a new map, then to replace the file; however, TomTom changed the coding on the latest maps so that the software no longer recognises the old cfg file. There is a complex workaround where you change your favorites, one by one, into Points of Interest - but it seems pointless having a Favorites item when you have to do this.
