If your tomtom gps is saying no map, the problem simply is that there is a problem on the gps device.

I have three suggestions for you to solve this problem. First, follow the step-by-step instructions for the "no maps found" situation in this link: http://us.support.tomtom.com/cgi-bin/tom…

If this doesn't work, follow the text instructions that I have written below. And as a final option, you can always call TomTom tech support at 866-486-6866 and they can help you out.

First of all, connect the device to your computer and close down TomTom Home software. (make sure it isn't even open in the system tray).

Now, open "my computer" and find the device. It will be labelled as a storage device (could be drive E:, drive F, etc. depending upon your computer). Open it up and find where the maps are saved to. Something like, North America, USA, or something similar relating the place you live. Once located, delete them manually.

Now, reopen TomTom Home software and go to "tools." Click ''use latest map guarantee''. It will then download the maps again and install them onto the device.

Next, disconnect using the option "disconnect device'' from the device menu.

Finally turn on your TomTom if it doesn't turn on automatically, and you should be back in business.

One additional tip: disable your anti-virus software before downloading & installing the updates. After this is complete, you can just restart you anti-virus.

Take care

Turn the unit off and make sure the power cable is disconnected as well, get a good SCREEN cleaner. Not the same as Windex or other product. Clean the screen well, you need to get rid of the oils and dirt on the screen. Once you are finished and the unit has been dried off power the unit back up and in one of the submenus you will find a screen calibration option. Use this and you should then be finished and the unit should go where you touch. Hope this helps

yes you can rest your tom tom. If you don't know how to do the reset, follow the steps below:

  1. Remove the TomTom GO from its cradle.
  2. Turn the unit upside down.
  3. Look for a small hole in the bottom of the unit. It will be located just behind the release button. The reset button is recessed inside this hole.
  4. Straighten out one end of the paperclip.
  5. Press the recessed button by inserting the straightened end of the paperclip into the reset hole.
  6. Hold the button down for ten seconds, then pull the paperclip out of the hole. Your Tom Tom GO should now be reset back to the original factory settings.
Take care.

I've wired my tom tom for use on a motor bike.
you CANT run 12v straight into the tomtom, you can see on the cig lighter plug it has a 5v output.
So I bought cheap lighter socket, it looks like plastic tube with the cable running out of the back.
So the wires run from the battery (via an in line fuse) to the cig adaptors, these are hidden in my side luggage bag to keep dry and up to the tomtom. job done

It is most likely that the battery is totally sogged! That is you need a new one. Cease placing it in the car charger and starting the car when this is connected. A) it shortens the life of the battery and B)damages the satellite search chip.

There is this problem with TomTom. Tom do not seem to overwrite the existing map file. So before trying to install the map, you need to delete the folder that contains the map. Once you have connected your TomTom to the computer, close the TomTom home window. Double click on my computer. You will see the TomTom hard drive as a drive (like you see the CD drive). Double click on that . Once the folders of the TomTom hard drive opens, look for a folder named USA_Canada_and_Mexico_P. (Please note: this name is for American continent. For others, this name will be different) Right click on it. click properties. Check whether the size of this folder is approximately around 1.3 GB to 1.5 GB. This is just to make sure we have the correct folder. After confirming this is the map folder, copy this folder to your computer for back up purpose. Once you have it safely in your computer, delete this folder from the TomTom hardrive. Go back to TomTom home software. Use the map guarantee to update/Upgrade the new map. You will see this time around the installation completes without a problem.

1) Format the Memory Card via Windows
2) Remove Card/Device from Computer
3) Plug Device/Card into Computer
4) Open up TOMTOM Home
5) It most likely will not recognise the Card/Device as a TOMTOM but will update it to a previous firmware. Keep following On-Screen prompts until fully updated.
6) Unplug your Card/Device, turn on and enjoy :)

Hope this helps!
