Question about Tomtom One XL GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Tom Tom XL

I`ve tried putting in a 2 gb SD card but no matter what I do, the Tom Tom ignores it and I can only fire up my device if I replace the original SD card that came with the device. I`m a trucker and want the mem increase to hold all the places that I visit. I am using a standard SD card and not an SDHC card.

    What if the SD card, 2GB, has only 150 MG free? Is this enough room to copy the startup files so it will work?

The One XL can only read from internal OR sd card...
So, if you want the device to boot from the sd card, it need system files installed on the sd card...

So, try this:
- BACKUP !!
- Copy ALL content from internal memory to sd card.
- Insert sd card, and boot the device.

It should know boot from sd card, not internal memory...

Device comes on but shows flashing X and nothing else.


The flashing X is usually asscosiated with a corrupt memory card or a pirate copy of a map.
if it is the later then restore the device from a backup to go back to your original map.

If it is a corrupt card then carry on reading below

This means it is not reading the SD card and that it needs to be re-formatted.

This is best done in a card reader and not the tomtom itself.
Right click on it and select format select FAT32 as the files system

Now connect the tomtom but don't let tomtom home run. exit TTH if need be.
You now need to select your tom tom which will also show as a drive.

In windows explorer select tools then folder options. Click view and tick the box for "show hidden files and folders"
It may warn you but you can ignore it.

Then just copy ALL the files from the tom tom to your SD card

DO NOT USE CUT AND PASTE !

Once all the files are on switch off the tom tom and insert the SD card

It should now work

When I turn on there is only a cross over the SD card.


This problem is due to the memory card not containing the TomTom application or map. To update the application onto the memory card, Connect the device to your computer. Open the TomTom Home application. Click on 'Update My Device'. This should then install the application onto the SD card. Alternativly, you could perform all the steps above without the SD card in the device, this will install the application onto the internal memory. Note: you may also need to install your maps, voices, etc after you updat.

Tom tom one xl wont accept SD card with map on


If you have TomTom that have the slot for SD card, then it should accepted the SD card. The instruction for how to use the SD card is simple, but it is hidden in the TomTom Home, that's why it's difficult to find it. Below are the instruction how to use the SD card.

1. Format the SD card (FAT32) and do not stick the SD in the slot yet
2. Run Backup (connect TomTom device to computer)
3. Disconnect TomTom from computer and turn off
4. Slide the SD into the slot and connect TomTom back to computer (choose "yes")
5. In the TomTom Home menu, Choosen Backup & Restore >>> and choosen Restore

TomTom Home will add all applications to the SD card. So the internal memory still have the applications and the SD card also had the same applications. Everytime you slide the card in, TomTom will automatic detect and use it as its primary storage, if it not detect, you can go to the device menu and pick the device to connect to.
Whenver you take the SD card out, then TomTom will use its internal memory.

Hope this helpful
