How do I update maps on tom tom one from computer to GPS ?

Usually, you connect your TomTom to your computer, and use the TomTom software (e.g. HOME) to update (e.g. buy, download and install) your map(s).
If your question is about how to copy a (new / another) map on your computer to your TomTom device (i.e. without using the TomTom HOME software), you can simply copy the "map" folder (of the map on your computer) to your TomTom Device (that you've connected to your computer).
You may have other questions like, is there enough memory on your TomTom device for the map ?; is the (new/other) map version compatible for the TomTom (model/version) device that you have ?; is the map "activated" to run on your TomTom device? etc.

No maps found

If there was previously a map(s), and now you're getting the No Maps Found (message), it's likely that your map (data) got corrupted. You can recover by restoring your back-up copy of the map (that you'd previously done via TomTom HOME on your computer).
If you don't have a back-up copy, try using your computer's disk check utility to fix the file system (of the storage media on your GPS device). Just connect the GPS to your computer, no need to use TomTom HOME, just use the Properties tab and use the Tools to run a disk check (assuming you're using Windows).
If that doesn't work, you may want to purchase & download and install the latest copy of the map from the TomTom website (via HOME).

I have a TomTom One N14644. I've had it about 2 years, and had no problems with it until now. On my computer I have a USA map, which is a backup of the one that came with the TomTom. I want to copy it...

If you know where the backup is stored in your computer, right click on it and copy it. plug in the tomtom, then you can close the tomtom program when it autostarts on plugin, then go to my computer and right click and open the tomtom manually like a normal usb device. Find the same map file in the tomtom and right click and paste your copy of your backup. Make sure you copy the file on the tomtom to a folder somewhere first in case there's any kind of incompatability and you have to revert back to how it is now. Hope this helps

Tom tom is asking for map, i have errase current map on the Tom Tom xl 340s. how to i restore original settings

Download TomTom Home. Follow th link below for this purpose.*&p_li=&p_topview=1
Select your operating system (XP, Vista) on the link above.
Then click download. Once downloaded Install.
Once installation is complete, Reboot your computer.
Open tomtom home by clicking the icon on the taskbar.
Connect the USB cable to the GPS. Switch on the GPS. Connect the other end of the USB cable to the computer.
Wait for a few minutes for the GPS to go through the self check procedures.
You have a fair chance that a new map will download. Follow on screen instructions. If this does not work, Try clicking on tools (in the tomtom home software). Click on latest map guarantee.
If your free guaranteed map feature was expired, you may have to buy a new map unless you have a backup copy of the map. If you have one, just copy the map folder to the root directory on the GPS. You will see the GPS harddisk as you see a CD or DVD on your computer file manager.
If you do not have a backup, and if by chance a friend of yours have a TomTom, connect that device to a computer and copy just the map folder (It will be named USA_Canada_and_Mexico_p for example). It is pretty big folder with approximately 1.6 GB of data. Copy this folder to your GPS. This should fix your problem as a last resort.

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.

I recently uploaded a tomtom map to my tomtom 1 series 3. Do I need to remove the map of England before I can get access to the french map?

Since you TomTom only has a 1 gb flash drive you will have to remove the map of England to put the map of France on your TomTom One Third Edition. Make sure you make a backup of your map of England or you will have to purchase a new map of England Do not use TomTom Home to do this simply make a new folder on your desktop. Connect your TomTom to the PC. Next go to "My Computer" and open the drive of your TomTom. After opening the drive of your TomTom copy your map of England and paste it into the new folder you made on your desktop. When you are ready to put the map of England back onto your TomTom just copy and paste the map of France into the new folder and copy and paste the map of England back into your TomTom.

My tomtom receiver is frozen on the start screen.

Connect your TomTom to the USB cable then turn on your TomTom in that order. Go to "My Computer" and open the drive that is your TomTom. Copy and paste your map folder to the desktop. Delete everything on your TomTom (don't format). After deleting everything on your TomTom. Open TomTom Home. TomTom Home will tell you, you need an application for your TomTom. Let TomTom Home load the application. You will probably have to do this at least 2 times to get the latest application for your device. After TomTom Home has loaded the latest application for your device closer TomTom Home and copy and paste your map back onto your TomTom. You should be ready to go after doing this. Make sure you do not skip a step when doing this.

Save your TOMTOM

Format the sd card while it is is your device. Start tomtom home and it will load the operating system for your device. You may have to do this several times to get the newest operating system for your device. If you have a copy of your maps just copy and paste the map to the root of your device in my computer. If you don't have acopy of your maps you may be able to download the original map from tomtom home. Open tomtom home click on maps and you may or may not be able to load the original maps that was on your device. Don't think you will be able to download a new map for nothing. It doesn't work that way.
Hope this helps
