Tom Tom one on XP

I have a Tom tom one. I have recently purchased from Tom Tom the latest British and Irish maps to upgrade my unit.
I've signed up to Tom Tom home to enable the download, as instructed I then plug the unit into my PC, turn the unit on and although my computer recognises the Tom Tom in the F drive I get what do I want to do drop down which is all about photoshop, opening powerpoint or folders. None of the options facilitate down loading the maps I've purchased.

The only problem that may exist with my PC is that i have XP and although I'm the only user I dont seem to have administrator rights and am classed as a user.

Please help me.

Is there any way to update the maps.


The latest upgrade I found was ver 1.8.0 (2006) Unfortunately for the amount of money this unit cost, it does not offer constant annual upgrades. Recommendation: Try Magellan, Tom Tom, or Garmin. These units now offer "voice address input" which is a nice feature to keep your hands on the wheel when driving.

Up date maps


To update maps you should run Tom Tom home on your computer and then connect the GPS

It will then ask you if you want to connect to the computer and you would tell your GPS yes.

Tom Tom home will once it finds your GPS then proceed to do any minor updates.

If your map is out of date it will offer you the option of purchasing a newer version.

don't be tempted to look for free / pirate maps !
These can cause problems in starting up your GPS (believe me)

Tom Tom map prices are not too bad and compared to many GPS are quite easy to install using Tom Tom home.

If you don't have Tom Tom home the latest version can be found here.

Download and install. Use Tom Tom Home to find free maps and additional maps you can purchase.

Brand new Tom Tom One 125 showing blinking red X when turned on


I was able to speak with Tech Support at Tom Tom and got sent some links for solutions to these problems.  I was able to solve the problem following directions from this website.  Without that response of the support person to this specific problem, I would still be without my new GPS system.  Turned out that there is a conflict with the MAC OS and updates to Tom Tom, but there is a solution to this that worked for me.
If you get the continual red circle with blinking "X" and recently tried updating either your maps or most recent app, here are the two web links that will solve the problem:
www.tomtom.com/10324 (to disable SPOTLIGHT from causing a conflict on the Tom Tom ONE)
www.tomtom.com/9091 (general info for removing software and re-installing software to the Tom Tom ONE)
Do the disabling of SPOTLIGHT first, then remove and re-load software for Tom Tom ONE.  Good Luck.  This did the trick for me.
