    I tried and it didn't work. Map still comes up as Guam. So I tried to delete the map from the device and now there are NO maps to be found when I turn it on. HELP!!!

  • zuzuptlz Mar 02, 2008

    I uninstalled and then reinstalled and when I tried to setup the location, it still says "no maps!". Then an error messege comes up that says "xulrunner.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience", and then shuts down. This happened every time I tried.

    Did you get an install CD with the TomTom device?

    If so re-install that.

    If you still have no luck call this number I have found.

    866-486-6866

    This is TomTom support for the USA.

    I have used them a couple of times now and they are very helpful.

    Let me know how you get on.

When upgrading, it defaulted to GUAM and not the USA. How do I get back to the US?


I found Guam settings on G:\Guam and deleted them one-by-one; TomTom automatically defaulted back to the USA.

I cannot download the USA and Canada on my Tomtom any more


Connect the device to a pc via a usb cable. It will appear as an additional external drive. Navigate the drive and you will fin a folder called Guam.

Copy it to the PC.
There will be another one called USA_and_Canada. check if it has any contents.

The Tom Tom website can tell you how to install the map again if it is not there

Setting country on tomtom one


This TomTom comes loaded with 2 maps....Guam and the US with Canada. I too got stuck in Guam and it is not obvious how to get out of it. But here it is.
Go to Main Menu, then Change Preferences
Hit forward arrow twice
Go to Manage Maps
Hit forward arrow once and choose Switch Map
It should show you Guam and the US and Canada
Tap US and Canada and it should take you out of Guam!!
Mine did and I am now going to delete the Guam map.

Tomtom one


Okay, I fixed it and came back to tell the story in case some poor soul finds their way here with the same problem. Some of these tomtoms come with guam as well as us and canada. we didn't fat finger it; for some reason tomtom home stored us and canada on the hard drive (g) and took it off the device when it did its first update.

First, plug your tomtom into the computer and go to "remove items" and remove guam. it will give you the option to store it on the g drive which i did, (in case I should take a notion to go there soon.) this provides more space on your device.

Now go to "add maps, traffic, etc," in tomtom home and scroll the arrow to page forward until you see "items on my computer." click this and then click maps. hopefully us/canada is there, thats where tomtom home had put mine. click "add" for that item and it should upload to your device. this takes a long time. there may be an application that tomtom still wants to update to your device. do this before turning the tomtom off from the computer, i couldn't see that us/canada was there until I did this, and then I had to turn the tom tom off, and bring it back into tomtom home two times before I could see it had the map and was working again.

your compass will also be messed up after you have done any updates at all to your tomtom. this is tom toms new application, there is nothing we can do about it until they fix it someday. the tomtom still works right, you just don't have the cool compass options you had with the original. if you did a back up before you initial update you can go back to the older application if you want.

hope this helps people, as you can see above i was very frustrated because the nice people who really did try to help in this and other discussions had not experienced the problem and did not know the answer. maybe tomtom udates does different things at different times, but this is what it did to mine.
