Map corrections that i make and update online do not show up on my tomtom. i have hunted and hunted for detailed intructions, but cannot find anything. I find their website and support structure to be poor.

    For a joke, I changed the speed in my street to 250kph. It worked and is there all the time.

    Also the school zone with the 40k speed between 8 and 9:30, I have changed from 60k to 40, and that is still there when I reboot.

    However I am having trouble changing speeds on the m4 expressway which has about 30 different speeds over the length from Sydney to Katoombah. It seem that the TomTom 720 is quite good at
    taking on one's own map corrections over short distances but will not work with this 100km "street".

    This is the reason I bought the 720, so that I could have a reminder about the speed as I do the trip daily.

    Any help would be appreciated.

Map corrections that you post online are for their software techies to use when they are writing the updates. These do not immediately update on your unit when you upload the correction to their site.

Map updates. The directions are often incorrect. Device voice and map show me I am at destination then changes to show it is actually a half mile or more down the road. Needs corrections!!!!!!!!! Thanks!


There ar frequent minor map corrections accessible through MapShare. You configure your GPS to accept these corrections. You can selected to accept ALL, or from TRUSTED sources, or ONLY corrections verified by TomTom.
Connect the unit to the computer and download the MapShare corrections. If your map is too old, maybe it is time to get the latest one.

If you have started using your unit not long ago (less than 30 days) you may have the right to a free update. TomTom offers the 30 day latest map guarantee.

Connect the unit to a computer where you installed the tomtom HOME application. Upon registration, HOME will proceed to update your GPS.

Map correction


It may take a while for a new road/expressway to make it to updates. Tele Atlas has to verify the change, and often times there are so many changes, that some may not make it into the update right away. If it is an expressway, I'm sure newer users have reported the correction, but best advice is to report the correction again, and hopefully it will show up in TE's next set of maps.
