I was also unable to get TomTom Home to recognise my VIA 160. I called TomTom Support and was advised that there was a programming issue with TomTom Home and it was being addressed. They advised I would receive an email notifying me when the Home Application had been updated to allow connection with the VIA 160. At 21 February, I still have not heard anything back from TomTom and have not checked to see if an updated version of Home is available. If there is, hopefully the new version will work with VIA 160.. JT

No maps found


If there was previously a map(s), and now you're getting the No Maps Found (message), it's likely that your map (data) got corrupted. You can recover by restoring your back-up copy of the map (that you'd previously done via TomTom HOME on your computer).
If you don't have a back-up copy, try using your computer's disk check utility to fix the file system (of the storage media on your GPS device). Just connect the GPS to your computer, no need to use TomTom HOME, just use the Properties tab and use the Tools to run a disk check (assuming you're using Windows).
If that doesn't work, you may want to purchase & download and install the latest copy of the map from the TomTom website (via HOME).

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

Old Tom Tom can't find signal


Replace the battery!. Maximum life is two years. If you have not fully charged it by usb or ac prior to a trip and then connected it to the 12v car outlet before starting the engine the battery becomes damaged overtime.
Battery level determines the time it takes to make a connection. Always keep it charged. Never plug it into 12v car power when starting engine. This will not only shorten the life of the battery, but wiull damage the SIIRF chip.

Tomtom home won't run on my computer


I have TomTom Home running on my Mac desktop and PC laptop. Can you tell me what computer you're using? If the computer operating system is older than 10 years, then I don't think any software would run on your computer unless the software was 10 years old. There's been alot of upgrades to hardware and software....

Tomtom One


hi ! I had the same problem. My TOMTOM version was too old to connect to the new TOMTOM 'Home' software . Contact TOMTOM support and they will give you a link to the older version of TOMTOM Home where you can update your TOMTOM version which will then be able to connect to the newer version on Home , and then link ok to your computer.
Best of luck !
