20 Most Recent Tomtom Xxl 550 GPS Receiver Questions & Answers

Have you tried to "re-boot" your device ? e.g. hold down the ON/OFF button for a (long) while ... until the device shuts down and restarts ... (and see if it goes past that point)
Or have you tried to do a "hard" reboot, by pushing a pin into the RESET hole (at the bottom of the GPS) to shut it down and restart it ?
If both of these doesn't work, it may be a (navigation) software error. In this case, try to restore your navigation software from your (latest computer) back-up ... and see if that solves the problem.
if not, you may have to get TomTom support's help to download a "fresh" version of your navigation software to install on your GPS device, and then try to start it up ...

If you're refering to upgrading your Navigation software, QuickGPSfix data and/or your current (out-dated) map, you can do it by connecting to the TomTom website (www.TomTom.com) using the TomTom HOME or MyDrive Connect software, depending on the model/version of your GPS device.

If you're refering to upgrading your GPS hardware/equipment, to have more capability/features, the device is not hardware upgradable, except for adding/using an SD card with a higher storage/memory capacity (to store more info/maps, etc.) ... provided you have a GPS device with an SD card slot.

You'll want to consider buying a newer model with more capabilities / features than what you have now.

If you can't find the proper one from the TomTom website ... (particularly, if the GPS device is an older version), try checking / looking for it on eBay or Amazon. Just make sure the attachment is compatible for your TomTom model.

Go to manufacturer web site and they will tell you what software to download and what connections to use for your software updates.

Software and firmware is free but unless you paid for lifetime maps, map upgrades will cost you about 50 bucks- and that is a rip off. But........

Moisten a cloth (microfiber preferably) making sure it won't drip, place it over the stuck paper only. Allow it to sit a few minutes, then try to buff off

If it doesn't continue to show the license and owner screen, it means that the TomTom (navigation) software is not running properly. Often it means that the software is corrupt, and it has to be repaired or replaced.

If you are able to connect the TomTom device to a computer (using the USB port), select the TomTom disk, right click and select Properties, and run the TOOLs to check and repair the (TomTom) disk. After completing the repair, disconnect it (from the computer), restart the TomTom - turn it off and turn it back on, and see if you get it going normally. If not, you'll need to restore your navigation software from your backup and see if it works. Or you can download the navigation software from the TomTom website and copy it onto your GPS device.

That model may not have sufficent memory to accomadate the upgrades clear out your addresses and redo the adress pages if your putting in old adresses from old version. The stored addresses could be looking for the outdated info thats not in the system any more I would try reinstalling all your previous addresses or cmpletly dumping your adress book an put in new addresses after update
