Can I add a Florida map to a Tom Tom 25 or do l have to add a new memory card and remove the u k maps


some TomTom models do not have enough space to store all the possible maps you can download. You will probably have to remove your current map in order to install the Florida map. The TomTom utilities should tell you how much is need/available.

Tomtom xxl problems


these have major issues during updates. mine also failed after update in very similar fashion. and after searching a lot of forums apparently its a very common thing. unfortunally i never found any solution to this. and ended up having to throw it away since it was past its warranty period. i suspect it was a buildt-in planned obsolescence since it was very rarely used (less than 6 times) but maintained at ideal long term storage condition

I updated my tom tom and now when i turn it on it comes on but the screen is frozen


Try re booting, turn off like normal, then when you go to turn it on, hold power button down all the way through the start up, and 15 seconds more than release the on button, now it's rebooted, see if that helps, let me know.

I just purchased a Tom Tom XL 335 SE, but when you turn the volume up above 85% there is no sound. I exchanged the gps for a new one and the new one does the same thing. Any ideas for how I can get it to...


This was is a known bug to TomTom. The suggested solution is to update to the newest software version. The Download Page Here is where you can get the newest version.
(1) Ensure that you have the latest version of TomTom HOME installed
(2) Backup your navigation device by clicking Backup and restore in HOME
(3) Make sure you have enough space on your memory card or internal memory.
(4) Transfer your favourites to your new map

Downloading and installing your map
(5) Select your navigation device:

Before you disconnect
(6) If you have a speed camera subscription, install your TomTom speed cameras.

Select your new map

(7) If you have more than one map installed on your device, select the new map. On your navigation device, tap Manage maps in the Preferences menu and then tap Switch map.

Update download for tom tom xxl 540s is too big for unit, lost all maps


Theres good news for you, you can get a SD card for your tomtom, and all you have to do is to install or download your maps on the SD card then fix it into your tomtom and you will be able to view your maps from there. For the lost maps, connect your tomtom to your computer, be sure to have your drivers software, then you select your tomtom form your computer, then you install all lost maps back on it by restoring all old maps. But for large downloads, download all new maps on a SD card. That should do the job.
Hope this information came in handy.

Just purchased TomTom XXL states that this device contains newest maps. Unfortunately it is not so. For example a roundabout in the vicinity of Empuriabrava, Spain, which exists more than three years is...


I Hate to tell you this but i have said this before and posted this before for people. Newest maps available mean just that. The problem is in the company that goes out and actually maps these roads, passages and speed limits.Tom Tom does NOT go out and map these roads and places, they buy the maps from another company (here in north America it is either Tele-Atlas or maybe Nav_tech, think there might be one other one) that company is responsible for map updates and other things, all TOM TOM does is put there version of How do i get from here to here on it and ship it out using the most recent maps that are available from whom ever they purchase the actual maps from.Hope this helps.

Can't load Map update on TomTom XL 330S


You'll have to remove enough stuff to make room for the new map. I had the same problem which is how I found this site. Turns out, the new map is larger than the one that came on the unit. The 1 GB of available space is pretty much all used when you get the GPS. Just copy all the voices and POIs that you aren't planning on using to your computer in case you change your mind later (you can just download them again for free too). As for the voices, only one works for text-to-speech anyway and that would be Samantha though a male voice is available for download.

You'll need to clear just under 4 MB to make room for the new map, and that's if you haven't added anything. Having the drive/memory on this unit just larger than the map makes it very difficult to get much use out of TomTom's great add-ons.
