    - Have you installed TomTom Home?

    If no:

    - If yes, can you start TomTom Home manually from program menu on pc?

    - If no, uninstall TomTom Home and then reinstall it.


    When you get connected, make a FULL backup of device via explorer asap...

I was updating my device and we had a power failure Now my device is flashing a red X and will not connect. can you help

unplug the unit and turn it off. Connect the unit to the usb again and turn it on. Once its on it should connect back to your PC. Open up tomtomhome and click manage my tomtom one. Find the tomtom one application and delete it. Then go back and check for an update, and there should be one there. Re install that update and your unit should be good to go.

Can I update my Garmin without a charge? It wasn't even current when it was purchased!

Well, I can on my TomTom, You go to their, Garmin web site and register, then you can "Update" via the internet. First though you must install any drivers & software on your PC. Generally you download this or it self installs when you connect your unit via the cable to the USB port.

Computer not recognizing usb connected nav device

Turn off CPU, Unplug Power cable, And all usb devices, let it sit for about 20mins. Plug it all back in. Turn on the CPU! Also make sure if your device requires "DRIVERS" or if you have a CD download and install that before anything.

Flashing X on TomTom but cant get it off on spotlight on my mac!

Make a full backup onto your computer making sure all files are shown. Do not use tt home. Make sure you have a copy of your map in your backup. Do not format. Delete everything on your tt. Connect to tt home and tt home will reinstall the navcore for your device. Copy and paste your map from your backup onto your tt. You should be set to go. A reminder you will lose all your preferances and favorites when you do this.

No connection to PC

Cause of all these problems may be as simple as faulty USB cable. I had initially bought cable on e-bay when i described problem below and didn't think cable was faulty as got the green loading bar etc. Subsequently tried another cable from a digital camera and gps began charging but no green loading bar etc. Finally borrowed cable from friend with similar model and it all worked perfectly: began charging, managed to register (and get the free 2009 maps update) etc. so problem could be the cable. Garmin sell it on their website for 7 euro but I'm sure there are cheaper alternatives in Electronics shops.

TomTom One V3 - Problem connecting to TomTom Home

I have the same problem in NL.. TT Home has problems downloading over Wireless connections.
Try connecting the computer to the internet via a cable. You may have to restart TTHome or maybe even your PC. The download should be quicker and more reliable :)

The problem is related to the MTU size and working around that can be very technical.
