Activation code for Western Europe v660.1256 map for tomtom one


Acctivation codes can only be given by TOMTOM distributor when a fee is paid. The code is based on the device number and is coded into the maps. The GPS checks that both numbers coincide.

It is illegal to use Piratede Maps and this forum does not support these requests.

Down loading Europe on my TomTom 1/3


Yes you can I have europe and canada on mine.

just plug your tomtom into your computer and start tomtom home

On the computer screen for tomtom select ADD MAPS

Here you can select and buy the maps you need.

Once you have confirmed the purchase you will be given instructions on how to download etc

Some maps may take a little time to install to the tomtom itself.

you should also ensure there is enough space on your tomtom
If not you will have to get an SD memory card.

I use a 4gb one that still has lots of room to spare

My new TomTom One will not complete the preference installation


Lorna R from the UK support team solved my problem - but it did require some persistence. If a folder FOUND.000 exists on your device then firstly delete it. I turned off my virus checker and all other programs. Then:

STEP 1 Check your Internet Connection

- Make sure that you have a fast broadband Internet connection, ideally 2mb/s or higher
- Check that you are not at the end of a British Telecom exchange. If you are, then you will find that you are not receiving your advertised Internet connection speed and the connection will be unstable. This can mean that any large downloads via TomTom Home may time out and not download fully.
- Make sure that you are connected to the Internet via a Network cable and not wirelessly. You can plug a network cable into the back of your Router and connect it to the network card on the back of your computer. Also, if you connect wirelessly, you have an extra layer of security which can interfere with downloads.
- Please ensure that your firewalls are configured to allow TomTom Home to connect to the Internet fully.

STEP 2 Reinstall TomTom Home

- Download and install TomTom Home from : http://www.tomtom.com/services/service.php?id=16&tab=87
- Open TomTom Home 2.6
- Click on ‘Remove Items -> Items from My Computer’
- Tick the option for ‘Applications’
- Tick the option for ‘Maps’
- Click on ‘Remove Selected Items’

STEP 3 Make a manual backup of your device

- Connect your TomTom to your computer and switch it on
- On a PC, create a new folder on your desktop and call it 'Backup'
- On a Mac, create a folder on the desktop and call it 'Backup'.
- On a PC, Open 'My Computer', you will see the TomTom as a removable storage device, e.g. TomTom (E:), double left click into it.
- Click on Edit -> Select All, then click on 'Edit -> Copy'
- Go to your Backup folder on your desktop that you have created, double left click into it and click on 'Edit -> Paste'

- On a Mac, you will see the TomTom device on the Desktop, double click into it.
- Select and copy all of the contents of the TomTom device.
- Go to your backup Folder that you have created and double click into it.
- Paste all the files into the backup folder.

Please also look at the following webpage in how to do this:-
http://www.tomtom.com/3171

*IMPORTANT*

Only proceed with Step 4 and 5 when you have successfully completed a manual backup of your device.

STEP 4 Remove the Map Folder from your device

- Connect the TomTom to the Computer
- Browse the contents of the TomTom via 'My Computer', (on a mac, click on the desktop icon for the TomTom disk)
- You will see the Files and folders for the TomTom.
- Delete the map folder e.g. Western Europe, or Western and Central Europe, or United Kingdom and Ireland

STEP 5 Download your Latest map Guarantee

- Open TomTom Home
- Log in to your TomTom account
- Click on Tools -> Use Latest map Guarantee
- If you see a map available for download, click on 'Get it Now'.

The map can take a few hours to download depending on the map size and your Internet connection.

If you find that your map is taking more than 5 hours to download or the Download does not install correctly, then unfortunately your Internet connection is preventing the map from downloading correctly. Ideally, you will need a faster and more stable Internet connection.

How to set up my tom tom one in Greece to travel back through Europe


Unfortunately there is only a limited amount of space on the ONE. You can back up your Tele Atlas maps on a laptop using TomTom Home. As long as you have your maps backed up in TomTom Home, you'll be able to install each set of maps on the fly. It may seem like a hassle, but it's better than having only one set of maps

New map download problem


Its more than likely that your NEW SD card is faulty. First thing i suggest is you try another card. Then recopy everything off your old card and then recopy the western erope map also.

Tomtom One 3rd edition - no SD slot and not enough memory


You could probably just manually delete the Canada/USA maps from the device, and copy over the europe (or whichever ones you need) to the device. 
Just plug it in, and view the memory like a normal usb drive..delete the old, copy over the new.
Don't forget to use tomtom home to backup your gps device to your computer first (thus saving your canada maps for later..)
Afterwards, you would probably have to go into your preferences and choose the europe maps.
Good luck!

Tomtom 1 (new edition) map of europe


I think you'll find that you can download it from tomtom home, with full technical help online & on the phone.

I dont advise COPYING it from a friend as you will get a symbol appear on the screen with a tomtom SD card with a large red cross through it, indicating that the tomtom knows its not a genuine copy.
