Question about Tomtom GO 720 GPS Receiver

2 Answers

Not enough space on device to put download into memory.

I contacted TomTom technical support by phone & explained problem.
They told me to purchase an sd card 2 gig- insert & connect to computer then update as usual. I followed their advice, however no change- even now that ive added the sd card the computer is saying not enough space to add down load to internal memory, need to lose 748kb to install, which is what it said prior to me adding the sd card.
What do i need to do to rectify problem?
Many Thanks.

Make sure the SD card is specifically for your brand of GPS.

I had the same problem with a go 750 eventually i just bought a 4gig card and that solved the problem... you see a 2gig card isn't 2000mb it is only around 1900mb. i think that might solve your problem

Can I add a Florida map to a Tom Tom 25 or do l have to add a new memory card and remove the u k maps


some TomTom models do not have enough space to store all the possible maps you can download. You will probably have to remove your current map in order to install the Florida map. The TomTom utilities should tell you how much is need/available.

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.

What do i need to do when i hook up my tom tom for the first time and try to download the map. i dont want mine to crash like some other ones did when they tried to download. im getting a tomtom 340s in...


It is a good thing that TomTom more or less functions like a computer. Start with downloading the TomTom home from TomTom website.
Then follow the link below.
http://us.support.tomtom.com/cgi-bin/tomtom_us.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=7954&p_created=1194036534&p_sid=lhLt3NZj&prod_lvl1=&prod_lvl2=&cat_lvl1=&p_accessibility=0&p_redirect=&p_lva=&p_sp=cF9zcmNoPTEmcF9zb3J0X2J5PSZwX2dyaWRzb3J0PSZwX3Jvd19jbnQ9MTI2LDEyNiZwX3Byb2RzPSZwX2NhdHM9JnBfcHY9JnBfY3Y9JnBfcGFnZT0xJnBfc2VhcmNoX3RleHQ9bmV3IG1hcA**&p_li=&p_topview=1
Then comes the tricky part. If you are in US or Canada, you will see that the new map will not install properly. Reason? not enough space in your Tom Tom for 2 maps simultaneously.
Solution : Connect the GPS to computer via USB cable . copy every thing to a folder in your computer. Make a second copy as a precautionary method. Now go back to the GPS (drive) in the file manger. (delete the maps-USA-Canad-Mexico folder. This is an example, if you are from a different country find the map folder and delete it. ) You will see that you have freed approximately 1.6 GB space. Go back to TOMTOM home and use the latest map guarantee feature. This time around you will see that the map updates completes without failure.
Check it out by driving around through some roads you know.
Good luck

In the Memory slot at the bottom of your TomTom (Go 750) insert a 4GB MicroSD memory card and download Europe 2GB from your TomTom update. It worked for me Good luck !!

Can't load Map update on TomTom XL 330S


You'll have to remove enough stuff to make room for the new map. I had the same problem which is how I found this site. Turns out, the new map is larger than the one that came on the unit. The 1 GB of available space is pretty much all used when you get the GPS. Just copy all the voices and POIs that you aren't planning on using to your computer in case you change your mind later (you can just download them again for free too). As for the voices, only one works for text-to-speech anyway and that would be Samantha though a male voice is available for download.

You'll need to clear just under 4 MB to make room for the new map, and that's if you haven't added anything. Having the drive/memory on this unit just larger than the map makes it very difficult to get much use out of TomTom's great add-ons.
