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 ned 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
If you search for "TomTom turns itself on", you will find that there appears to be a problem which TomTom will not acknowledge. Mine always turns itself back on exactly (to the minute) one week after being switched off and runs the battery down. Tomtom have got me to reformat and had it back for repair but the problem remains
This is TomToms fix, apparently something went wrong with the software, my advice would be to make a back up of the device using the TomTom home software. This issue can come from disconnecting the device while it is attached to the computer and software while it is busy, always make sure you use the eject device in the TomTom home software if you are connected to the PC.
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 update.
I got this similar password problem with Tomtom One XL. I just solve this problem step by step under the following ways.
1. Connect One XL to TomTom Home in your computer using USB cable and switch on ONE XL. (Click YES to connect each other) 2a. Click "Manage my ONE XL" 2b. Click "Items on device" tag. 3. Now you can see all of the data in your device and click "Applications". 4. Click inside the check box and click "Copy items to computer". (This step is back up for just incase) 5. After Backing up your applications, then Click "Applications" check box and click "Remove from device". 6. After removing applications, unplug from computer and switch off ONE XL. 7. Connect ONE XL and computer again and switch on your ONE XL. 8. TOMTOM Home will search your applications in your device. Finally it will automatically download and installed the new applications. (There will be 4 times installation and the device will restart itself. At this step, you need to touch "Yes" on your device to connect the device and computer.) 9. After installation completed, your device looks like newly come out from the factory. 10. Set up Language, Time, and so on and ready to use.
Yes Nickarino is right.
When I switched on my new tom tom it gave me that option to speak street names and it vanished after selected a different voice.
I checked all manuals and web references in Tom Tom - none of them list it.
Like Nick said - what you need to do is swtich the voice type to SAMANTHA and it will show the option "Read Street Names Loudly".
I jumped on it and said yes ..!!!
Thanks Nick !!
