This is impossible to do without your product code. The code is supplied with a new TomTom and is usually on a separate card or if you have installation CD's it may be printed in the CD box behind one of the CD's. If you've bought map downloads before then it will be on the My Downloads page.
The code is made up of three groups of five characters/numbers.
Without the code, your TomTom is inoperable and it's a deliberate feature to prevent stolen TomToms from being of use to anyone but the owner.
What I can suggest is download the drivers & software first .. Than buy another brand of memory card.. I had same issue with a Mp3 player that I had purchased.. It wouldnt recognise the card even though it was setup properly.. I returned it and baught a different brand.. Worked Like a Charm..
#2 If you for some reason cant get the software to install or work properly, I suggest you buy a new Tom Tom (( EXACT MODEL )) and than take the old Tom Tom put it in the new box and take it back with your receipt and tell them this doesnt work.. Ive done that b4 with a Speaker system and it wasnt an issue with the store...
On TomTom Go at least: Change preferences/change Home location/ Then select from several options. If you are at your home location then fastest is to select "my location", next easiest is to select "Address", then "Street and number"
i had a simalar problem -i asked for an update off garmin and they sent me a disc with apdated maps but didnt tell me i had to first delete the loaded maps you will have to go on the garmin website and order the FREE update disc for uk and ireland and just follow the instructions when you recieve it hope it works for you ;>)
I think your problem, as it was my also, is the memory card. I tried with a friend of mine's data card (memory) and is working fine, I sent my card to garming after I talk to them over the phone for an exchange.
I have a 276C with 512Mb data card.
I hope this help you to solve it.
