TomTom One XL.In trying to rectify problem of no Opening or Closing screens, I have lost my recently downloaded Australia map.Also plagued with "Parse Errors",which frankly I do not understand.I find TomTom Web pages very hard to understand.Device keeps showing a Tomtom logo moving from the unit to the top of screen with a large red cross on it,but no explanation of its meaning.This is a reasonably new unit, useless!!! Thank you. Rob. Hervey Bay.

In the event of a problem you can reset the unit by removing it from the cradle and using a straightened paper clip in the reset hole on the unit's bottom (just behind the release button).

Try first resetting the unit...

To reset your ONE XL, use a straightened paper clip, or something similar, to
push the reset button. The reset button is next to the memory card slot on the
bottom of your ONE XL. Then turn your ONE XL on.

Hope that helps.....

Hi,

Did you try a hard reset?

    1. Check that the battery is charged properly.

      Charge your device for at least 2 hours before trying to turn it on again. Make sure the charging light on your device is on.





    2. Remove the SD card

      If your device uses an SD card, remove it.





    3. Reset your device.

      Use a straightened paper clip, or something similar, to
      push the reset button for 15 seconds. See the pictures below for where to find the reset button.





    4. Turn your device on.

      Press the On/off button for at least 5 seconds.





    5. Insert the SD card

      If your device uses an SD card, insert the SD card.

Need to update Thailand map for finedrive


You can get the latest version of the map from the tomtom.com website . Select MAPS ... and choose THAILAND (from the AUSTRALIA, NEW ZEALAND & Asia group of maps).
It's easier to buy a map than trying to update an old version

Screen reads"no maps found"


I found this article online, and it may work for you:

"Ok this has worked on at least four tomtom one’s
And one xl’s that i have tried,
First of all connect your tomtom to your computer.
making sure your online,Go to log on.
if you’ve not created an account create one now.
If you’ve had to create an account restart tomtom home.


You should have the tomtom home screen in front of you,
Now even if tomtom home is showing you logged in, ignore
this click your email adderss in the top right hand side of the screen
and log in again and click continue.
Then click Device/disconnect device.
Now your tomtom will update itself and your maps will be restored"

Lost map


you tom tom should have come with a serial number and an activation code.

Contact TomTom directly and you should be able to download the map through TomTom home...

Also the TomTom home app (if ever synced & registered will have an backup of ownership to the device))

Also the device it came with....

Xl 330s will not locate/display maps, just a blank screen saying "no maps found"


suspect that your maps file is corruped or lost. this may have occured due to a drop or other inteference such as high magnetic field or eletromagnetic interference.
if you connect your tomtom to your pc you can view inside to see if the maps are in the device. if they are not then you may have to redownload them from any map software you had or from the TOMTOM website using tomtom home.

No Maps found on TomTom One XL


You were able to successfully download windows files with your Mac and transfer them to your Tom Tom? I'd suggest trying the transaction again, but doing it with a windows machine. (Trust me, I have a Mac and I realize how unwell it likes to play with Windows.) {But I wouldn't trade it}

When I try to find some addres it get me lost or couldn't find the new addres at all.


how to have a lost weekend use TOMTOM GPS!

the proble #1 get you lost. I assume you mean it takes you through a torture track that you could have more easily navigated by stying on the main road and closing your eyes?
Try disabling shortest or quickest route option

problem#2 can't find address, perhaps your maps are out of date. Cartographer data is over 12 months old useally when new maps are released.

are you in Australia? get an Altina GPS with Polstar maps both Hware and software are a moree reliable GPS than TOMTOM. check out the number of problems on this site with TT's its a wonder they get any sales with the problems that we have to solve on these pieces of junk
type Marbella Australia and see the 8210 or the super A860 unit much more reliable?

even offshore they can supply maps for other countries so check em out and sell your totom on ebay

Tom tom Western european map


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.

TOMTOM AUSTRALIA


Most likely , no , unless its a special pack or somthing.

All Maps are available as installable add-ons, usually sold as a insertable memory card containing relevant map software.

So to get Australian maps on your American TomTom would just require installing the Australia Maps pack.
