The only way to get map updates without buying a new map,
is through the MapShare system.

If you havent, make an account for free at Tomtom.com:
http://www.tomtom.com/myTomTom/myProfile/index.php

If you havent, install TomTom Home:

Connect and update device on a regular basis.
Hope this helps for you.

I PURCHASED A 335TM XL TOMTOM GPS AND AFTER FOLLOWING INSTRUCTIONS ON THE VOUCHER, MY TOMTOM SCREEN, DISPLAYS " NO MAPS FOUND.


You have to first load maps on the gps before you can use it. You go to tom tom website, then you update your tom tom with maps, then register your device. After doing that, I assure you will be able to use the gps.

Are there any new update maps for my new 340 s Tom Tom


If you bought your TomTom brand new, the first time you installed the TomTom Home software, you may have received a message that a free map upgrade was available. If you did not receive that message, then either the unit is up to date, or it was not new.
You can check the version of map you're using by going to the TomTom Home software, and from the main menu, click the "More" button to get to page 2. From there, choose "Manage my ONE XL", and click on the "Items on Device" tab.
Click the "+" sign to the left of the word "Maps", then click the "More Info" link to discover the version of map you are using. The most current version (as of December 1, 2009) is 840.2568.
If that is not your version and you believe you're entitled to it, call TomTom technical support and state your case. Otherwise, if you want this version of map, you will need to purchase it.
When trying to load a new map onto your device, make sure you first run the backup routine (in TomTom Home) to back up the old map. After downloading a new map, but before it can be installed, you'll need to remove the old map, since there isn't enough room on the device to have both maps loaded simultaneously.
Hope this helps.

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If your map is out of date it will offer you the option of purchasing a newer version.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

Problems copying maps onto XL One


Are you using USB 1.0 or 2.0 as this makes a vast difference in speed.
Also the map size and type can also make a difference in the install times.

Tom Tom 910 map free update


nope im afraid you will have to cough up for the new maps (map corrections etc will only show new one way directions, and new or adjusted POIs), might be a good idea to wait till brand new maps are available before you splash any cash, good luck

Help, this is very frustrating! All I want to do is update my tomtom One XL with the latest maps. my computer has had a virus, and I just got it out of the shop.


Make sure you have Tom Tom Home:

http://www.tomtom.com/services/service.php?id=16&tab=87

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

Tomtom one updated maps , quarantee


You should be able to get online to Tom Tim Home, register your product and get at least one update. You are good for a year from date of purchase. Just say you purchased it now. After that updates cost money.

Psg map update


Pioneer SUCKS!! After buying a GPS and being told upfront by Pioneer that a upgrade will be aval. in 90 days for a modest cost, it takes them almost 9 months to come up with it. Then they have the nerve to ask $150 for the upgrade after people have paid $300 to $500 for their GPS. I will never buy a Pioneer product again. I switched to a TOM TOM and it works better, no upgrade problems and over all it cost me less than that POS Pioneer.
