Tomtom One won't work after update

Plugged in my TomTom One (3rd edition) to update last night, and during the middle of a software install everything froze. Rebooted the computer, and now my Tomtom just flashes a red X on the screen. I've tried the reset button, problem still exists. Then I tried the 'explore' the Hdd to remove the key files, format then dump them back in, but keep getting the same windows error message: "file or directory is corrupted and unreadable".

Should I just format and use the Totom Home program to reload my settings? Regretably I didn't back anything up before I updated. Will my Tomtom just become an external hard drive now, or will it work out? Do I have to do this on my computer, or can I load the Tomtom Home program on another computer, and do it from that computer?

Free update


If you have a right to a free update (within 30 days of first use), go to TOmTom and download the Home Application to your computer. Install the software and connect the GPS to a USB port. When TomTom Home senses the GPS it will connect to it and run an update. Your free update (if any) will be installed and your maps will be updated.

How do i update my Tomtom 3RD Edition (1GB) GPS Systems for free i would appreciate it if you have an answer thanks.


Hi, I was having trouble too and have found the manual for the 3rd edition online
http://download.tomtom.com/open/manuals/one3rd/refman/TomTom-ONEv3-en-GB.pdf

I'm following these instructions:

Installing TomTom HOME
Install TomTom HOME on your computer in the following way.
  • Connect your computer to the Internet and then connect your TomTom ONE to your computer using the USB cable.
  • A pop-up window appears. Select Run TomTom HOME. Click OK and follow the on-screen instructions.
  • If the pop-up window does not appear, browse to the TomTom device on your computer and run the file named Install TomTom HOME.
  • TomTom HOME is also available for download from the TomTom website.
  • For more information visit www.tomtom.com/home
  • Once installed, TomTom HOME will start automatically whenever you connectyour TomTom to your computer.

Hope this helps, Lynsey

Unable to download software to my computer


You need to install TomTom Home.

The link below will point you to the download site for the latest Windows PC software::

http://www.tomtom.com/services/service.php?id=16&tab=87

Tom Tom Home will then allow you to backup/restore your TomTom One software and get the latest updates for your current 'authorised' map.

This means that the software on your gps system is corrupted and unreadable. You will need to update it/re-install the software on it. To do that, you can download this software which will automatically search for the latest updates: http://www.tomtom.com/services/service.php?id=16&tab=87

I downloaded updates for my tomtom One 3rd ed. updates show on my computer but not on my tomtom.


Tomtom home software usually does the updates.

Check that the AUTO option is not disabled.

You might also want to upgrade to TTH 2.7 if that is not your version.

Tom Tom won't charge


double check the connection. I had this with a one xl and it turned out to be a small bit of debris that had gotten into the car charger and stuck there so that even the home charger would not help.

I used a compressed air can for computers to blow it out..
also get a magnifying glass and check the connector strips inside the connector.

If you see damage it will probably have to got in for repair


if this info was of use then please click
