I need more info to possibly help.
Do you have info on the SD card you need to keep?(just use a SD card reader for your computer to reformat to FAT) Be sure to copy all files to a safe place FIRST!
You could also try this combination, to clear ALL memory then reboot GPS unit.
1. Press and hold "Enter"+"Menu"+"PWR"
2. Follow GPS units On-Screen directions.
If GPS unit "locks-up" press and hold keys in this order, "Goto"+"ESC"+"Enter".(Forces GPS unit Off)
good luck

My gsp only has a sd card no usb slot so how do i transfer the update to my gps Thanks


Depending on the type of GPS you have, you have a few options...

If the update instructs you to put the update files on the SD card, you need a means for your computer to access the SD card. This can be done by using an USB SD card reader, which can be picked up at your local electronics, digital photography store or online.

If you have another device that allows the transfer of data between a computer and the device (and it uses SD cards), you can put the SD card for you GPS into your other device, connect it to the computer through USB, and transfer the update files. For example, if your digital camera uses an SD card, you could put the GPS SD card into the camera, and then connect the camera to the computer.

Make sure you're updating correctly - sometimes the update is a file you run on your PC that in turn transfers files through a different means onto the GPS. Read the manual for your GPS for more information regarding transferring files onto the GPS and updating.

I lost my sd card how can i get another one


The SD cards are one of the most common memory card formats. You can buy them in any large department store or electronics outlets. If the original card had pre-installed factory software on the card, your GPS may still not work so check with Magellan first to see if that is the case.

I can't get the dish to re format. Error meassage reads disk problem and a x in a red circle appears.


If you have an SD card in try removing that before you power up.
 
You may also want to try the hard reset.
Paper clip in the tiny hole by the card slot.
 
Push it in firmly whilst the unit is powered up (not too hard) for about 3 seconds then release
You may have to power down and then up again and even hold down the power button a little longer the first time you do this

The SD card may also need formatting properly.

This means it is not reading the SD card and that it needs to be re-formatted.

This is best done in a card reader and not the tomtom itself.
Right click on it and select format select FAT32 as the files system

Now connect the tomtom but don't let tomtom home run. exit TTH if need be.

You now ned to select your tom tom which will also show as a drive.

In windows explorer select tools then folder options. Click view and tick the box for "show hidden files and folders"
It may warn you but you can ignore it.

Then just copy ALL the files from the tom tom to your sd card

DO NOT USE CUT AND PASTE !

Once all the files are on switch off the tom tom and insert the sd card

It should now work

I MADE A MISTAKE AND DOMN LOADED A MAPE TWICE AND LOST CONTACT TO


If you backed up your tom tom then restore it from that backup. Two maps should not stop you from getting to the tom tom home web but may stop the home application working properly.

If you have an SD card in remove it and try again if all is good then try put the sd card in a reader rather than the tom tom and make the required deletions from there. Or if you DO have a backup then format the card properly and then restore to it whilst it is in the reader. Then put it back in the tom-tom and you should then be back to where you need

I have a Mio C220 that does not power on even though battery is charged. Will not work off of battery or plugged into cigarette lighter. Bought it in Nov. 07 but have lost box, receipt, software, and all...


Mio wants people to know, especially the folks who recently bought the Mio C220, that you need to put the SD card in the unit for it to work. The Mio C220 has the maps on the SD Card, and it seems that not everyone knows to put the SD card in the unit before firing it up. No SD card means no working GPS.
Mio Says:
1. Before you power on your C220, insert the SD Card firmly into the slot on the right side of the device
2. Once the SD card has been inserted into the device, power on your C220 by pressing and holding the power button for 10 seconds.
For More information check out the Mio GPS Page on the SD Card for Mio C220

You cannot use a sd card from another tomtom. The sd card is coded for each individual device. About the only thing you can do is to purchase a 1 gb card (no larger because it won't be supported). Insert the blank card into your unit and connect it to your pc. Go to my computer and see which drive the tt is. format the card and then open tomtom home. This will load your operating system back onto your card. I don't know if you can download a free map or not. Check the tomtom forums for more information concerning maps.
Hope this helps
