Question about Tomtom ONE GPS Receiver
i am very new to this. i just bought a 2nd hand TT1 v2 (skint) without manual. when i switched it on it just shows pick of TT asking me to insert card. card not supplied, will it work without one? when i plug the USB in to computer it just shows the connection on screen. Is this what it should do?
so far i have installed TT Home but nothing happens when i connect the TT with the USB. TT Home does not recognise the connection so nothing happens. I have tried different ports but still same. Can anyone help me please.
Lots of TT work without a card but some may not. Do a search on formatting the sd card for a TT tho cos this has been an issue for some users.

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.
