I deleted TomTom Home from my computer. I downloaded a version of Home just for Mac OS 10.4 users and rebooted. Then I followed the directions and it downloaded all of my maps, etc to the original TT SD card. I also set up my cell phone with a bluetooth connection.

Didn't need to reformat the new SD card I had bought because the original card had enough room for everything.

Thank you for asking.

I reformated my canada xl 310.i lost all my files.just a screen with a red x.


You've probably backed up the contents of your TomTom disk (when it was connected to your computer) to your computer before you reformatted the TomTom Disk. Or you used the TomTom Home to back up the contents of your TomTom.
Try to copy the back-up files back on to your TomTom device disk and see if it works.

Just curious ... why did you reformat your TomTom disk ? which will erase all the files on the TomTom disk.

Tomtom Go 500 won't see memory card - big red cross over memory card on screen. Have tried reflowing solder joints on card slot. Have tried cleaning card slot.


Have you tried reformatting your memory card? Does your computer recognize your card if you plug in the card directly to your computer? You can also try a different memory card if the other solution doesn't work. REFORMATTING WILL ERASE THE CONTENTS OF CARD JUST SO YOU KNOW!

My tomtom is asking me to put the memory card in but it is already installed?


If the tomtom isn't recognizing the card you either have a bad card, or the wrong type. Tomtoms tend to have problems with cards over 2gb in size. Take the card out and use either a laptop or pc with a reader to look at the card. If you can see the card then the card itself isn't the problem. If there is nothing on it them reformat it, The card should no be able to be read.If not then it is simply too big or the wrong speed fir the tomtom. I have a few 4gb cards that are brand new and work fine but are not recognized in the tomtom or the garmin .

It is possible that the unit has a problem but that not that common. All you can do is get the unit replaced or repaired.

Formatting a tomtom go 710


Hi, I probably cant answer all of your questions but I might help with some of them. You should be able to access your TomTom 710 without removing TomTom home software from your PC. It should be accesses as a drive through the USB connection in "my computer" on your PC. When a USB device is connected to your PC it appears as an external drive. Therefore you should be able to delete , load onto , or format the TomTom hard drive ( or with some other models the SD card ) as you would a normal drive . ( an example of this is where you might have a camer with SD memory card and relevant manufacturers software on your PC . you might connect your camera to the PC via USB and the camera software on your PC automaticly detects the camera for it to eb accesssed . However , the camera and it's SD card can also be accessed seperatly by going to "MY Compter" and it should also be visible there as an external UDB device / external drive ) . Now .. to another another question . If you do un-install TomTom home , I dont think it will also delete any backup of your TomTom , it will only delete TomTom Home software . ( the word "think" is mentioned because I have never tried this ). Besides that , you can choose in tomtom home , where you want any backups to reside , so you could save backups via TomTom home to a CD for istance. If you did that , then you would have the backup on a CD rather than your harddrive which means you could safely un-install TomTom home knowing that if it also removed any saved backup you would still have the CD with a backup on it. So , to summerise.... If it were me , I would make a backup of the TomTom by simply copying all the files on it by opening the TomTom up as a folder in "MY Computer" , simply drag any files and folders from the TomTom into a folder I have prepaired ( call it for instance "my tomtom backup" ) on my PC . Then I would format the TomTom drive then reinstall the backup and see what happens. If the TomTom still doesnt work properly , I would Format the tomtom again then use TomTom home to obtain all relivant files , then copy only the maps and .MAC files ( these are the authorisation files for the maps ) from my Backup to the TomTom manually ( not from tomtom home ). I would guess that would result in a working TomTom again ... Good luck.
