How do I change home address on my TomTom via 225?


On the GPS itself go to: Home location
Tap this button to set or change your Home location. You enter the address in the same way as you do when you plan a route.
Your Home location provides an easy way to plan a route to an important location.
For most people, your Home location will be your home address. How-ever, you might prefer to set the location to another regular destination,such as your workplace.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
--kkkkkkkkkk Online you will need to setup an account, and log in to change your address or edit your profile..
MyTomTom account
To download content and to use TomTom services, you need a MyTomTom account.
You can create an account using your computer in one of the following ways:
? By selecting the Create account button at tomtom.com.
? By selecting the green MyTomTom button at tomtom.com.
? By going to tomtom.com/getstarted.
Important: Take care when choosing a country during account creation. The correct country is needed if you make a purchase from the TomTom shop and it cannot be changed after the ac-count has been created. Note: If you have more than one TomTom navigation device, you need a separate account for each device.
Setting up MyDrive
To get ready to use MyDrive for the first time, do the following:
1. On your computer, open a web browser and go to tomtom.com/getstarted.
2. Click Get Started.

When set-up is complete, a MyTomTom account is created and your navigation device is linked to that account.
You can now access MyDrive Connect from the notification area on your desktop.

Register tomtom


You need to find out which software is compatible with your device: TomTom Home or MyDriveConnect.
Once you determine which software you need, download and install it on your computer. Connect the GPS to the computer. The TomTom software will start running and hopefully recognize the device.
By creating an account using your email address you will link (associate) the device with the email address. And that constitutes registration.

How can I update my tomtom maps for free? take me step by step


Find out which TomTom software works with your device (TomTom Home or MyDrive Connect), download it and install it on the computer. Connect the device to the computer. It should be recognized by the TomTom software. For TomTom Home, find the Update my TomTom and follow instructions. For MyDriveConnect create an account with TomTom and associate the device with the account. Once logged you will see what you are entitled to. If you do not see MapUpdate you are not entitled to free updates and you will have to buy the new maps.

How do i reg tom tom cant find any forms


Install the Tomtom HOME software available HERE. You'll need it anyway to keep your device updated.

In the top right corner of the application GUI you'll see a link that allows you to log in into your Tomtom account or create one if you do not have any yet.

If you connect any Tomtom device using the supplied USB connector cable or cradle, the device will prompt you if you'd like to connect to the PC. Tap "Yes" and the Tomtom HOME software starts. If a new device is detected, the registration process is started automatically that binds a Tomtom account to a device.

The official Tomtom advice is to have separate accounts for each Tomtom GPS you own.

Register my tomtom


To update your unit you must create an account by supplying a valid email address. I suppose this is akin to a registration.
To effect that you install the Tomtom Home software on your computer. Then you connect the unit to the computer. When it asks you if you want to connect to the computer, tap Yes and the HOME software will open allowing you to update maps etc. You will be asked to create an account.

My tom tom keeps switching off as tho out of power even tho plugged in. the charger gets extremely hot as does the wire, any suggestions? it is about 3 years old


You need to plug your TOM TOM into a PC with Internet connection and go to the tomtom web site: www.tomtom.com
You will need a usb cable that has the "mini" usb standard connector that plugs into the TOM TOM unit. It should update automatically, but you will need a TomTom Home account (free) created. Then you can download the latest updates that should clear up the power issues. Otherwise, get a new power cord as they do wear out with daily use. -Greg

My new TomTom One will not complete the preference installation


Lorna R from the UK support team solved my problem - but it did require some persistence. If a folder FOUND.000 exists on your device then firstly delete it. I turned off my virus checker and all other programs. Then:

STEP 1 Check your Internet Connection

- Make sure that you have a fast broadband Internet connection, ideally 2mb/s or higher
- Check that you are not at the end of a British Telecom exchange. If you are, then you will find that you are not receiving your advertised Internet connection speed and the connection will be unstable. This can mean that any large downloads via TomTom Home may time out and not download fully.
- Make sure that you are connected to the Internet via a Network cable and not wirelessly. You can plug a network cable into the back of your Router and connect it to the network card on the back of your computer. Also, if you connect wirelessly, you have an extra layer of security which can interfere with downloads.
- Please ensure that your firewalls are configured to allow TomTom Home to connect to the Internet fully.

STEP 2 Reinstall TomTom Home

- Download and install TomTom Home from : http://www.tomtom.com/services/service.php?id=16&tab=87
- Open TomTom Home 2.6
- Click on ‘Remove Items -> Items from My Computer’
- Tick the option for ‘Applications’
- Tick the option for ‘Maps’
- Click on ‘Remove Selected Items’

STEP 3 Make a manual backup of your device

- Connect your TomTom to your computer and switch it on
- On a PC, create a new folder on your desktop and call it 'Backup'
- On a Mac, create a folder on the desktop and call it 'Backup'.
- On a PC, Open 'My Computer', you will see the TomTom as a removable storage device, e.g. TomTom (E:), double left click into it.
- Click on Edit -> Select All, then click on 'Edit -> Copy'
- Go to your Backup folder on your desktop that you have created, double left click into it and click on 'Edit -> Paste'

- On a Mac, you will see the TomTom device on the Desktop, double click into it.
- Select and copy all of the contents of the TomTom device.
- Go to your backup Folder that you have created and double click into it.
- Paste all the files into the backup folder.

Please also look at the following webpage in how to do this:-
http://www.tomtom.com/3171

*IMPORTANT*

Only proceed with Step 4 and 5 when you have successfully completed a manual backup of your device.

STEP 4 Remove the Map Folder from your device

- Connect the TomTom to the Computer
- Browse the contents of the TomTom via 'My Computer', (on a mac, click on the desktop icon for the TomTom disk)
- You will see the Files and folders for the TomTom.
- Delete the map folder e.g. Western Europe, or Western and Central Europe, or United Kingdom and Ireland

STEP 5 Download your Latest map Guarantee

- Open TomTom Home
- Log in to your TomTom account
- Click on Tools -> Use Latest map Guarantee
- If you see a map available for download, click on 'Get it Now'.

The map can take a few hours to download depending on the map size and your Internet connection.

If you find that your map is taking more than 5 hours to download or the Download does not install correctly, then unfortunately your Internet connection is preventing the map from downloading correctly. Ideally, you will need a faster and more stable Internet connection.

No maps


You probably have a directory on your Storage Card called \Storage Card\My Documents\Map_Name

copy the Map_Name folder to the root of your Storage Card

so you have \Storage Card\Map_Name

restart TomTom and it should pick up the map back. if this didnt work then probably the card directory where the map is stored may corrupt or unreadable try reinstalling the map
at least this has worked in many tomtom one’s
And one xl’s that i have tried,
First of all connect your tomtom to your computer.
making sure your online,Go to log on.
if you’ve not created an account create one now.
If you’ve had to create an account restart tomtom home.

You should have the tomtom home screen in front of you,
Now even if tomtom home is showing you logged in, ignore
this click your email adderss in the top right hand side of the screen
and log in again and click continue.
Then click Device/disconnect device.
Now your tomtom will update itself and your maps will be restored
please let me Know if this has worked for you.hope this helps pls apprecite by rating as fixyaa thanks and Godbless
