What you should have done before downloading updates is to always backup your unit to your tomtom home as if there is a problem then it can be reversed, but in your case i think you may have lost your maps, Unless your computer auto saved somewhere, if you have just purchased your unit, try contacting the seller and asking if they could help you, Sorry this is probably not much help, But always backup.

Windows 7 64 bit does not recognise my Tomtom go 630 on Compaq 610 laptop - have latest "my tomtom", Video convertor for Tomtom & Tomtom home 2


Windows 7 is a new operating system, it does not support so many applications, softwares and files, Therefore, not being able to use your tom tom on your windows 7 should not come as a surprise to you as windows 7 does not support so many kind of softwares.
Try your tom tom video converter on another operating system and am very certain it will work there, except if there is a problem with the converter itself. Try it out on windows vista, windows XP etc.
Best regards

I conected my tom tom to the computer and lost my map


re-installing is not easy (unless you have backed it up before) the problem is that the TomTom maps have a serial-number hence it is impossible to get the same one twice.

your best shot is to call Tomtom support ( http://uk.support.tomtom.com/cgi-bin/tomtom_uk.cfg/php/enduser/std_alp.php?Lid=1&p_sid=DRhUfyQj ) and explain what happened, they are known to have installed original maps for free.

720 go wont let me download music onto it wont let me operate it on the computer


Have you installed an expansion memory card in the 720? Sometimes it wont let you download music because you have filled up the internal memory. You need to put music on to the separate expansion card. BUT... when connecting to the computer to update map corrections and software, if you have not selected INTERNAL MEMORY when it connects, it won't be able to find the tom tom software, so it will just think you have another external USB hardrive attached. SO... take the expansion card out of the tom tom, then connect the tom tom to the computer in the normal way - Voila, suddenly it now sees the tom tom and you can update software. But do not download any more music to the internal memory. Ultimately you will have to format the EXTERNAL expansion card to clear it of any tom tom software updates, then download ONLY MUSIC to the external card. Do not hit Update My Tom Tom while connected to the external card - only do this when connected to the internal memory.

When I plug in my Tom Tom 630 to the computer, it says the device is not recognized. It also seems to take longer to access the GPS signal. Any help is appreciated. Freddie


I just called TomTom support, I was instructed to hold the reset button on the bottom of the unit for 15 seconds and then reconnect the GPS to my computer. It worked, TomTom Home opened and I was able to apply the updates.

This problem is due to the memory card not containing the TomTom application or map. To update the application onto the memory card
  • Connect the device to your computer.
  • Open the TomTom Home application.
  • Click on 'Update My Device'.
This should then install the application onto the SD card. Alternativly, you could perform all the steps above without the SD card in the device, this will install the application onto the internal memory. Note: you may also need to install your maps, voices, etc after you updat.

Tom tom one xl wont accept SD card with map on


If you have TomTom that have the slot for SD card, then it should accepted the SD card. The instruction for how to use the SD card is simple, but it is hidden in the TomTom Home, that's why it's difficult to find it. Below are the instruction how to use the SD card.

1. Format the SD card (FAT32) and do not stick the SD in the slot yet
2. Run Backup (connect TomTom device to computer)
3. Disconnect TomTom from computer and turn off
4. Slide the SD into the slot and connect TomTom back to computer (choose "yes")
5. In the TomTom Home menu, Choosen Backup & Restore >>> and choosen Restore

TomTom Home will add all applications to the SD card. So the internal memory still have the applications and the SD card also had the same applications. Everytime you slide the card in, TomTom will automatic detect and use it as its primary storage, if it not detect, you can go to the device menu and pick the device to connect to.
Whenver you take the SD card out, then TomTom will use its internal memory.

Hope this helpful
