Ok, lets start with explaining the different code types:

Product code
The TomTom product code consists of 15 characters. It is a unique code to prove that you have an official TomTom product and hence you need it for product activation.

Device code
The device code consists of 10 characters. It is different for every device, so make sure you use the device code for your own device, on which you want to use the software.
When you activate manually the device code is shown on your device during activation.
Click here for help on where to find your device code.

Activation code
The activation code consists of 15 characters. It is generated from the product code and the device code. This activation code is required to run the software on your device. It only enables the software to run on that particular device.
Automatic activation
In most cases the software is activated automatically using an existing internet connection.
Manual activation
In some cases you may have to manually activate your software. In this case the product code and the device code generate a unique activation code. Enter this code on your device.
Go to http://www.ttcode.com/ to obtain an activation code for manual activation.

What to do if the activation fails
Make sure you have the latest version of the TomTom application installed on your TomTom device.
If you can’t activate a map on your TomTom GO / ONE / RIDER,
download Clear_Flash, follow instructions here

HI, Bought tomtom go 710 from a charity sight on


It may be likely that the "registration" matter is related to the map ... and not the GPS device ... that one can register (as the owner) when the device is purchased new ... to get and load the latest map.
If this assumption is correct, your device would start up but not even get to the "driving screen" ... because there's no (valid) map.
You can first try to register the GPS device (on tomtom.com) against your name, etc., and opt to purchase a map (of your choice). With this purchase, you will download the map (software and data), and an activation code to validate the map. After that you should be able to use the GPS device (for that purchased map).
If you'd like additional instructions/options, let me know how I can reach you by email.

TRIED TO UPDATE MY TOMTOM GO 710 BUT NOT ENOUGH MEMORY BOUGHT NEW CARD BUT TOM TOM WONT TAKE IT TRANSFERED DATA BACK ON TO OLD CARD BUT TOMTOM WONT TAKE THIS...SHOW TWO CROSSED HAND ON MEMORY CARD...


Just had the same problem..............

I discovered that you must only use an SD card and not an SDHD card.

I bought a bigger SD card (2Gig), installed it and copied the data I wanted without any probs. With the SDHD card I couldn't transfer anything and didn't get any help as to why...(there's a lot to be said for trial & error).

Hope this helps

I HAVE A TOM TTOM GO 710...DOES IT NEED A SIM CARD


yes, the tomtom 710 needs the sd card which has the maps on it. if you just bought it and didnt get one with it, i suggest you take it back, because the cost of the card often out weights the value of the gps.

if you want to buy a sd card for it, you can get one HERE on the tomtom site or you might want to try ebay.com which sometimes they have them...i just checked ebay for you and currently there are none listed.

How to get a activation code for tom tom go 910!!


This is impossible to do without your product code. The code is supplied with a new TomTom and is usually on a separate card or if you have installation CD's it may be printed in the CD box behind one of the CD's. If you've bought map downloads before then it will be on the My Downloads page.

The code is made up of three groups of five characters/numbers.

Without the code, your TomTom is inoperable and it's a deliberate feature to prevent stolen TomToms from being of use to anyone but the owner.

Lost all maps


I am very sorry to hear that you had no backup. Theres no way you can recover data once you have deleted it from an sd card. BUT , If you still have the authorisation card ( thats the one that generates the activation code ) then you might be able to copy data from another tomtom card to your card then reactivate it with the authorisation card. GOOD LUCK.
